    Samsung has been regularly updating its smartphones, smartwatches, and tablets. After launching two new tablets last night and updating its high-end smartphones to the latest security patch, the company seems to have rolled out a new update to enhance the software on two of its most recent smartwatches.

    The Galaxy Watch Active 2 and the Galaxy Watch 3 have started getting a new software update with a download size of around 49MB. The latest update seems to improve the icons for auto walking, auto running, and inactive alerts as per the official changelog. The new software, which is based on Tizen OS 5.5.0.2, also improves the device stability of the two smartwatches.

    The latest software update for the Galaxy Watch Active 2 bears firmware version R820XXU1DUE3, while the Galaxy Watch 3 has firmware version R840XXU1BUE3. The updates are now available for Samsung's Galaxy smartwatches in the US, and we expect the rollout to expand to more countries in the following days.

    If you are a Galaxy Watch Active 2 or a Galaxy Watch 3 user, you can check for the update manually by opening the Galaxy Wearable app on your smartphone, navigating to Watch software update, and then tapping on Download and install.

    The Galaxy Watch Active 2 and the Galaxy Watch 3 will be Samsung's last smartwatches based on Tizen, and the company is switching to a newer version of Wear OS with the launch of the Galaxy Watch 4 later this year. The South Korean firm has promised to keep supporting the older watches for three years from their official launch dates.
