Although Samsung managed to take a serious hit due to the failure of the Note 7 phablet, the company continues to lead a few markets. Smart wearables might not be selling well in some areas, but the Gear Fit 2 is widely considered one of the best fitness trackers one can get. The Gear S3 smartwatch is also a product that has been well received. This week, both got new software updates.

First, the Gear Fit 2 gets a 21.44 MB update that brings the software version up to version R360XXU1BPK5/R360OXA1BPK5, adding the following: auto pause during exercise, star jumps activity, support for indoor set exercises, Calorie information for Healthy pace, as well as a menu for connecting to a new handset. The update is also expected to improve GPS performance.

Unfortunately, there is not much info about the update for the Gear S3. The new firmware versions are R770XXU1APK3 (Classic) and R760XXU1APK3 (Frontier). According to SamMobile, the new software might bring support for speedometer, but this cannot be confirmed yet.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
