Gear Fit 2 and Gear S3 getting minor firmware updates

The Gear Fit 2 is one of the best fitness trackers going around. Samsung has just sent out a new update for the wearable which brings along some minor features on board. This is not a game-changing update, but one that will enhance user experience to a great extent. The update changes the software version to R360XXU1BPK5/R360OXA1BPK5 and is about 21.44MB in size.

The Auto Pause feature on the Gear Fit 2 automatically pauses your runs or cycling when you’ve stopped. Further, Automated Dynamic Workout Tracking now automatically registers exercises like basketball, table tennis, badminton, dancing and soccer.

In the meanwhile, Samsung has sent a firmware update for the Gear S3 Classic and the Frontier as well. The updates will carry the firmware versions R770XXU1APK3 (Classic) and R760XXU1APK3 (Frontier). It is being said that the update brings support for speedometer as well, although it cannot be confirmed at the moment.

Be sure to check out our review and initial impressions of the Gear Fit 2 and the Gear S3 Frontier.

I have a Gear fit 2 with firmware R360XXU1BPG3, any news on when this will be updated, The GPS needs a serious update, can take up to 5 mins to lock if at all and when it does the tracking is inaccurate. I run the same route every night and it ranges from 4.8k to 5.2k. If the next firmware doesnt fix it then its going in the bin!

Wow
Automated Dynamic Workout Tracking now automatically registers exercises like basketball, table tennis, badminton, dancing and soccer.

If Samsung starts adding more and more exercises and make them actually work Gear Fit 2 is gonna be the ultimate workout device.

On the gear fit 2 one should be able to see pace, distance and time on the same screen. Swiping while running isnt so great.

The Gear Fit 2 is not a serious workout device for example you cannot edit your work as whatsoever let’s say you’d forget to hit the button to stop the workout. You cannot go back and edit the work out. Also no customized workouts. I got the watch for free due to the Note 7 promo it just sits on my desk collecting dust

What about the update Samsung promised S2 owners to deliver by the time the S3 gets released?
Typical Samsung
