Samsung's Galaxy Watch was updated to One UI – a new software introduced on Samsung Galaxy Watch Active – earlier this year, but a variant was curiously missed.
So far, the most expensive and high-end Samsung Galaxy Watch – the LTE edition – has lacked the new software, but it now rolls out, so if you own one, you can expect a hefty update in the coming days.
You will find the new software called either R805FXXU1ESE6 or R805USQU1BSE3 depending on where you live and it will bring a number of new features. The upgrade was previously included on Samsung Gear Sport and Gear S3 as well.
New features of the update include a few new animations and visual changes to the software to make it more consistent with the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active, and its overall cleaner One UI design ethos.
One of the most interesting new features is just the fact that you can now tap the screen to wake the clock. This can be turned off in the settings, but this may mean that the interaction with your watch is easier than before.
The settings menu is now easier to navigate after some changes, and you will find more options under the Quick Panel, allowing you to have more options you can change with just a few swipes.
There are also a number of new watch faces included if you want to update the look of your watch screen, plus there are a few changes to Samsung Health, including a new outdoor swimming mode.
If you find the battery life, it is not good enough on your Galaxy Watch, there is a new battery optimization feature that should help keep your device running longer than it did before the update as well. 1
