    There's a new firmware update available today for the Galaxy Watch Active 2. Samsung's latest smartwatch last received an update two months ago. It was a minor update which brought general stability improvements for the device.

    Today's update is along the same lines. It doesn't bring any new features to speak of. However, it does address some stability issues. Samsung is now in the process of gradually rolling out this firmware update.

    The latest Galaxy Watch Active 2 firmware update comes bearing version number R820XXU1BTA1. It measures in at just under 20MB, as it often the case for these updates. The changelog doesn't say much beyond that the system stability has been improved with this update.

    This update will gradually be released for both 40mm and 44mm variants of the Galaxy Watch Active 2. Germany appears to be the first market where this update has been released. It might take some time before the update becomes available in your country. When it is, you'll be able to download it the Galaxy Wearable app on your connected device by going to the Watch software update menu and tapping on Download and Install. You'll also be notified by your smartphone once the update becomes available.

    Thanks, @hichamb143!
