Samsung releases major software update to the Gear S2 with new features

We exclusively reported last week that the Gear S2 would get multiple new features with an upcoming software update. We also previewed the new software along with all the new features and UX improvements. Samsung has now started pushing the update to the Gear S2 and you should be receiving it shortly.

The software update has a file size of 61.1MB and firmware version R732XXU2DPFB (for the Gear S2 classic) or R730XXU2DPFB (for the Gear S2 Sport). It brings My Photo watch face, social sharing for activities, automatic sleep tracking, new S Voice commands, a new contacts app and widget, and other new features to the smartwatch.

You should read our Gear S2 update preview along, which contains screenshots of all the new features, to know more about the update. If you’ve installed the update already, which features do you think the Gear S2 is still missing?

My Gear S2 connects to my Iphone 6 Plus with the beta gear app recently leaked.

My watch is still on version R732XXU2DPG1

Will I have to connect with an android phone to update ?

They fixed S Voice!! Works great on my watch! I’ve found one bug though – when I want it to calculate something (e.g. ‘six times four’), it processes input correctly (‘6 x 4’) but does not show the result.

My Gear S2 Classic shows the older software version (ending in U2CP5), but my Samsung Gear app indicates that there isn’t a newer version at this time (should end U2DBFP according to the article). I live in the US. Is there any way to force the update? Thanks!
