There’s a new firmware update making the rounds for the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active in the United States, which bundles some changes for the charging algorithm, according to the changelog. It’s unclear what exactly they do, however. But we aren’t going to look this gift horse in the mouth — any update that improves battery life is welcomed with open arms by us here at SamMobile HQ.

While the release is rolling out in the United States, Samsung should bring it to other regions in the not-too-distant future. We will, of course, let you know as soon as that’s the case. If you’d rather keep checking for yourself, though, you can do so in the Galaxy Wearable application on your connected handset, by selecting Download Updates Manually in the About Watch menu in Settings.

Heart attack, be gone

Announced alongside the Galaxy Fit, Galaxy Fold, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy S10+┬áback in February, the Galaxy Watch Active is Samsung’s latest smartwatch, offering comprehensive health-tracking features, including an Heart Rate Alert that will notify users if it detects an abnormally high resting heart rate — one of the initial signs of an impending heart attack.
