First update for the Galaxy Watch brings Samsung Health improvements

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Watch along with the Galaxy Note 9 earlier this month. While the latest flagship smartphone has gone on sale in more than 50 markets around the world already, the smartwatch has seen a limited release so far. Even before regional availability is ramped up, the company is already pushing out an update to the Galaxy Watch

It’s a minor update which weighs 33.04 MB and bumps the Galaxy Watch software version to R800XXU1BRH3. The changelog is short on details and merely mentions improvements to Samsung Health and device stability. Given the size of the update, it probably includes nothing more than bug fixes.

Samsung Health improvements

The Galaxy Watch is the successor to Samsung's Gear S3. The Tizen-powered wearable brings a handful of new features in addition to subtle design changes. There's even a new processor, more RAM and larger battery compared to its predecessor.

Some new health and fitness features have been added to the Galaxy Watch as well. There's a stress management tracker that detects high levels of stress automatically and offers breathing exercises to keep users focused. An advanced sleep tracker monitors all levels of sleep including REM cycles.

Samsung is gearing up to launch Samsung Health 6.0 very soon. It is expected to be a major update which brings substantial UI and functionality changes, including removal of some nifty features. It makes us wonder if this Galaxy Watch update is in anyway related to the upcoming changes to the Samsung Health platform.
