Samsung Galaxy Watch Active gets its first software update
The recently released Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is now receiving its first firmware update, reveals Tizen Help. The new firmware arrives shortly after the first update for the Galaxy Buds came along, but — sadly — there is not much to say about it.
According to the aforementioned source, the update is now rolling out in the US and weighs only 13.83 MB. The new software version is R500XXU1BSD3/R500OXA1BSD3 and the Tizen version remains stuck at 126.96.36.199 for now. This piece of code brings an improved battery charging algorithm and better stability, but nothing else worth being mentioned.
The new firmware is now available in the US, so Samsung Galaxy Watch Active users in other countries should get it in a few days as well. Those who want to check for the update should go and fire up the Galaxy Wearable app on their connected smartphone/phablet, open the Settings tab, click on About Watch, and then finally tap on Download Updates Manually.
