Samsung is rolling out new updates for both the regular and LTE variants of the Galaxy Watch. The latest software is based on Tizen OS 4.0.0.1. The Gear S3 and the Gear Sport have already been updated to Tizen version 4.0.0.2.

Additionally, the update also improves stability of eSIM activation and includes a fix for the issue in which the VoLTE icon disappears.

The update for my Gear S3 made it useless after connecting it to my new Note 9.

I had been using my Gear S3 with a GS9+ very well. But I updated my S3 while using it with my S9+. It still worked well until I connected it to my Note 9. Now I can’t get contacts to sync to my Gear S3. And I’ve reset my S3 to no effect.

I’m now having to rely on my WearOS watches and have stowed away my Gear S3.
