Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 picks up new update


Last updated: November 25th, 2019 at 10:04 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Watch Active received a major new update last week and picked up many of the new features that were introduced on the Galaxy Watch Active 2, and the Watch Active 2 is now getting an update as well, although it’s a pretty minor release. Available in South Korea, Germany, and a few other markets at this time, the new update fixes a bug that randomly disabled Watch Always On mode and improves accuracy of calorie measurement using the heart rate sensor.

The update also improves general stability for Bixby features and is rolling out to both the 44mm and 40mm Galaxy Watch Active 2 variants. Like all other updates, you can download this one by opening the Galaxy Wearable app on your connected phone, selecting Watch software update, then tapping Download and install. It may not be available in your country right away, so you might have to check again later. Your phone will also notify you automatically once the update becomes available.

Have you received the update on your Galaxy Watch Active 2?
