THE Samsung has been using Wear OS on its watches since the launch of the Galaxy Watch 4. Galaxy Watch 3 with Tizen, however, was not abandoned: this Wednesday (28), the smartwatch received an update with new features. Among them is the snore recorder to collect more sleep data at dawn.
The reports came from a publication made in the reddit. In the topic, the user SnooRecipes1192 released the screenshot of the update in progress. The update is identified by build R840XXU1DVH4 and weighs 51.94 MB.
The new version adds new features to the Galaxy Watch 3, which has the Tizen 184.108.40.206 operating system. This is the case with the function to record snoring when sleep mode is enabled. The feature, however, depends on the phone’s microphone, unlike the Galaxy Watch 5as observed by Android Police.
Samsung Health received another boost. “Through the updated ‘Daily Activity Indicator’, Mobile Health data is synced to improve convenience,” they said. In addition, the 2020 watch has two new watchfaces, which were previously only available on Wear OS models: “Pro analog”, the default theme of the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, and “Gradient number”.
Samsung keeps Galaxy Watch 3 updates
Samsung stopped using Tizen in its watches with the launch of the Galaxy Watch 4. But the brand’s operating system was not left out: in May 2021, the South Korean brand promised to keep updates to Watch 3 and Galaxy Watch Active 2. The deadline is three years from the launch of the device.
This means that the Galaxy Watch 3, which was released in August 2020, should receive updates by next year. O Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2, meanwhile, was presented in August 2019. That is, the clock would be updated until 2022.
Samsung’s new watches will receive updates for four years.
