Thanks to an extensive product portfolio, Samsung keeps on rolling out new software updates to its devices almost every day. In fact, the company has just recently seeded the new April 2021 security patch to a variety of devices. We’re looking at Galaxy A20, Galaxy A30, Galaxy A70, Galaxy A8 (2018), and Galaxy Tab Active 3. Well, the chaebol has now started pushing a new firmware update to Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Watch 3 as well.
Galaxy Watch, Watch 3 receives a new update, brings stability!
Samsung is now rolling out a new firmware update to its original Galaxy Watch. The new update carries the firmware version R810XXU1FUD1. We’re looking at a rather small update since changelog has mentioned only two items. The changelog also mentions improved Messaging app giving a more stable experience to the user. We’re also looking at improved WiFi stability. Sadly, that’s all the new update brings to the table.
Moving on to the Galaxy Watch 3, the new update carries the firmware version R840XXU1BUD1. Just like the original wearable, the latest offering also gets the same two improvements to Messaging and WiFi. Apart from these two, the changelog also mentions ‘improved system stability and reliability.’ Both the updates are currently only rolling out in the Indian market. We’re hoping Samsung to seed the update to more regions in the coming days.
If you own any of the wearables and reside in India, then you might have already received the update notification. That’s not the case? then you can go ahead and download it manually by using the Galaxy Wearable app. Since we’re looking at a minor update that too for wearable, you can go ahead and download it over mobile data as well.
Original wearable still receiving new updates!
It is worth noting that the original Galaxy Watch was launched way back in 2018 making it almost close to being a three-year-old product. It’s surprising to see the company still pushing out the updates to its older version of wearables. Last month, Samsung even rolled out the support for Samsung Pay in Germany. Well, the wearable in India still doesn’t support Samsung Pay even though it arrives with NFC support. It’s largely due to the fact that Galaxy Watch lacks MST.
