One UI update out for the Galaxy Watch, Gear S3 and Gear Sport

Samsung has started rolling out the One UI update for the Galaxy Watch, Gear S3 and the Gear Sport. The company introduced this new user interface with the Galaxy Watch Active earlier this year. It’s now being rolled out for the aforementioned smartwatches through a firmware update.

The firmware update brings more than just the new user interface. It also adds a couple of new features to these smartwatches. Some of the new watch faces that were introduced with the Galaxy Watch Active are available too.

One UI update for Galaxy Watch, Gear S3 and Gear Sport is now out

The latest firmware update for the aforementioned devices brings improved workout and sleep tracking. The workout profile for outdoor swimming has been added as well. There are high heart rate alerts in addition to the Daily Activity feature which details overall progress. The changelog mentions that the smartwatch will also be able to track workouts quicker than before.

Users will find an updated settings menu and the ability to wake up their smartwatch by just touching the display. There’s a new setting to manage background apps on the smartwatch. The sleeping mode can also be turned on or off now. The firmware update promises battery optimization as well so your smartwatch might just be able to work for a bit longer on a single charge.

It’s good to see that Samsung has released this substantial update for the Gear S3. It’s certainly not one of its recent smartwatches. Yet, users will be able to get a few of the same features that are present on its latest smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch Active. Do check out our Galaxy Watch Active review to find out more about Samsung’s newest wearable device.

Samsung is rolling out the One UI update for the Galaxy Watch, Gear S3 and the Gear Sport with firmware version R800XXU1CSE1, R760XXU2ESE3 and R600XXU1CSE2 respectively over-the-air. It will take some time before the update is available for everyone.

What do you mean by “Source?”

locarno

Source = Source link. The source from where they get this information.

Biransahin
Biransahin

That’s an absolutely stupid question. 1. You can see the update screen on the article. 2. The source is OBVIOUSLY Samsung themselves. 3. Sammobile always quote Samsung sources correctly. Do you get off on thinking of the stupidest possible questions and asking them here?

locarno

“Do you get off on thinking of the stupidest possible questions and asking them here?”

No.

Just asking about this what is incomprehensible to me. There is a lot of other people who also comments articles.

Why are you always interested in a source? We’re a pretty solid authority on Samsung stuff as a Samsung fansite, so our word should be enough.

markstep1
markstep1

many things posted by you has been extremely inaccurate. Any form of press or media is required by international law to have an On record source to be deemed without Liable. So yeah SOURCE!

tjmak
tjmak

I agree with markstep1 70% of the stuff posted on sammobile is completely fabricated or embellished greatly. And yeah any website that claims they are a solid authority should have a source. As markstep1 said its actually a legal requirement for all international media /social which sammobile is. Back what you say with evidence, not some arrogant statement of. Its true cause I said so LOL ARROGANT!!!!!

locarno

I know you are solid authority but I also like to read original story and compare it with Sammobile story. Sometimes it helps me find mistakes and report it to you through email.

Locarno, there are no stupid questions, all questions are valid. its better to ask than to assume. dont be a question nazi

“R800XXU1CSE1, R760XXU2ESE3 and R600XXU1CSE2 respectively over-the-air.”

Which countries ?

Every country. Watch firmware updates are not country specific like phones.

Explain this more.

Sammobile isn’t Samsung. You should ask Samsung customer support these specific questions.

locarno

Samsung support don’t know everything too.

Well if Samsung Support doesn’t know everything, how do you expect Sammobile to know?

Sammobile do more test and research.

Adnan, would you please advise how to get the new watch faces.
Anybody was able to get those?

Biransahin
Biransahin

You will have them available my friend after your watch is updated to One UI. Then you will find them şn the watch faces area of the Galaxy Store. You will find the new free ones that were exclusive to the Galaxy Watch.

waelnd

Thanks for the response.
Yes I did find free watch faces, but these were available like a month ago and before the update (if you search for “Samsung electronics”).
I am looking for the “my day” watch face that was introduced with the Galaxy watch.

Biransahin
Biransahin

Yes, sure thing. I understand. You won’t see it until you get the software update. Hopefully soon.

You are like me, looking for the newest Samsung Active faces seen in review pictures. Yes, there are a few of these in the Galaxy Store searching Samsung Galaxy Watch, but not the one you want. Nor the one I wanted, the floating date, time (unknown name but shown often.) The ones offered do not have any customization available. That makes me call them low end faces.

Samsung is obviously competing with Apple in terms of updating old devices!

Kudos to Samsung!

is there a way to manually update Galaxy Watch? So we won’t have to wait like forever?

Biransahin
Biransahin

No, unfortunately. You will need to be patient.

tcampos

actually you can change the csc of the Watch to force the update.

try the xar, cause its the first csc to receive the update.

afterwards you can change it back, so you can use Samsung Pay and other services that are csc dependant.
