Samsung released Tizen 3.0 for Gear S3 last month. The latest Value Pack Update for the Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier brought a handful of new features but also introduced a bug. The bug caused the smartwatch’s battery to drain quickly for no reason.

Samsung suspended the update’s release and took a few days to launch the revised version of the Tizen 3.0 update. The revised update is now rolling out for the Gear S3 in Europe.

Revised Tizen 3.0 update for Gear S3

The company originally released firmware version R760XXU2CQK3 for the Gear S3 last month but most users were stuck on the previous R760XXU2BQC5 firmware version. We then received word from Samsung Netherlands that the Tizen 3.0 release was halted due to battery life issues after the update.

Samsung rolled out the revised update for the Gear S3 in North America last week. It’s now rolling out the same update in markets across Europe. Firmware version R760XXU2CQL1 has been released and it includes the battery life fix for the Gear S3.

The latest firmware update for the Gear S3 is being released in phases so it may be a while before it goes live in all regions across the globe. Some can expect to receive it early next month.
