The Samsung Galaxy Watch3 is updated for the first time, bringing blood-oxygen metrics and more
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.
