Galaxy Watch Active 2 gets improved GPS performance with latest update


Last updated: November 26th, 2020 at 08:31 UTC+02:00

Samsung has been consistently improving the Galaxy Watch Active 2 with software updates. A few months ago, the smartwatch received the Tizen UI 5.5 update and some markets got access to the ECG functionality. Now, the South Korean tech giant has released a new update for the LTE variant of the Galaxy Watch Active 2, and it brings improved performance and a few new features.

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 LTE is now receiving a new software update in the US. The new update has a download size of 45.42MB and it bears firmware version R825USQU1BTJ6. The official changelog mentions improved GPS accuracy and connection strength, and voice guidance via a connected Bluetooth headset while exercising. Samsung has also added voice guidance for things like traveled distance and heart rate data when the Auto Lap feature is enabled during cycling and running.

Samsung had released some of these features to the Galaxy Watch Active 2 in South Korea last month. Since the watch was released, it has received several new features via software updates, including Fall Detection, Running Analysis, scrolling screenshots, smart reply, chat history, support for new emojis and images, and VO2 max.
