The latest Galaxy Watch update makes some improvements to the smartwatch. A similar update has already been released for the S3 Gear by Samsung just last week. As many of you are aware, the Galaxy Watch is the successor to that device, Samsung just decided to call it the Gear S4.
A new firmware update is now out of the 42mm and 46mm Galaxy Watch. Reports about the release have come from the United States so far. It should be the update in other markets soon as well.
Latest Galaxy Watch update brings improvements
Samsung is now rolling out firmware version R810XXU1CSG4 for the Galaxy Watch. It's a 15.36MB download. The official changelog mentions that this update improves the overall system reliability.
It also disables the automated sync of alarms from the paired smartphone. This has already been done for the Gear S3 with its most recent firmware update. UI update, the Gear S3 had been copying the settings for alarms from the phone on its own. That would override any changes made to the alarm on the smartwatch.
These meant that if they wanted to vibrate for their alarms, they would wake up to the alarm clock. This update wants to prevent that happening on the Galaxy Watch.
The Galaxy Watch is capable of tracking your swim workouts. This update improves tracking for that activity. Just how noticeable these improvements are can be ascertained by actually tracking a swimming workout. Expect this latest Galaxy Watch firmware update to arrive at more in the near future.
