Samsung's latest smartwatch reportedly already has a firmware update. The new download confers blood-oxygen measurements as well as the ability to track maximal oxygen uptake (or VO2Max). Therefore, the wearable may be better equipped to help the user get an idea of important aspects of their health and fitness.

The latest addition to the Galaxy Watch series has only been on the market for 2 days. However, Samsung is already supporting very early adopters with a new firmware update for the premium wearable. It is one that switches the promised blood oxygen tracking spec on.

Furthermore, the Watch3 can now also monitor VO2Max, a vital component of aerobic fitness. Therefore, users involved in this kind of training or who are considering it can now build up a baseline on this device, and keep an eye on their progress from there.

The 80MB update also enables the second-gen Galaxy Watch to score sleep patterns, as well as "advanced running analytics". This OTA can be downloaded via the OEM's Wearable app, and should become available across all regions where the product is sold, except for Algeria, Angola, Canada, France, Iran, Japan, Libya, South Africa, and Thailand.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
