Galaxy Watch gets software update for improved Samsung Health stability

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.

Of course Samsung Canada still hasn’t sent out an update for the R805W and over 3 months later still having the same problems unable to update apps.

Samsung Canada are incompetent idiots!

You should also add that the one ui bricked all the sensors and that must be the main reason of the update.

If you dont know what is this, goto galaxy store the new update of samsung health app FOR GALAXY WATCH (not for device goto watch section) cant be updated because after transferring to app watch gets disconnected and it doesnot get updated what they did i guess updated the samsung health in this updste package to fix the issue.

Also samsung billing app is never updated from galaxy store it stays on installing…

Go and see the reviews on galaxy store for these two apps same issue to everyone.
