Galaxy Watch gets software update for improved Samsung Health stability


Last updated: June 17th, 2019 at 23:10 UTC+02:00

Samsung has released a minor software update for the Galaxy Watch today. The changelog says the update brings improved stability for a Samsung Health update, which doesn’t really explain anything. The Samsung Health app was updated earlier this week to add Galaxy Fit support and fix some bugs, and we’re assuming the Galaxy Watch’s fitness features will work better after this software update.

Today’s Galaxy Watch update follows the major One UI update that the smartwatch received a few weeks ago. The One UI update was also released for the Gear Sport and Gear S3 and, in addition to user interface upgrades, brought improvements to workout and sleep tracking, the ability to manage background apps running on the watch, new watch faces, and improved battery life. Samsung is currently working on a proper successor to the Galaxy Watch, which should launch alongside the Galaxy Note 10.

The new update is a 11 MB download and carries software version R800XXU1CSE1. It should be available over the air and can be downloaded via the Galaxy Wearable (Samsung Gear) app on your phone. Just go to the About Gear » Update Gear software section in the Settings tab of the app and select Download updates manually. Only the Wi-Fi model is getting the update at the moment, but it should soon hit the LTE variant as well.
