Galaxy Watch Active 2 Update

One of the best things about using Samsung’s products is the fact that you will always get first-hand access to all of the tech giant’s latest firmware updates. Samsung is always releasing software improvements for its devices and the latest one to benefit from this is none other than the highly popular Galaxy Watch Active 2. A brand-new update is rolling out for the wearable device and today we are going to cover everything there is to know about it.

Galaxy Watch Active 2 New Update

The first thing that we want to mention about Galaxy Watch Active 2’s new update is that it is available to download directly via OTA (over the air) channels. As a result, the only requirement to access the update and all the improvements that it brings is to have access to a stable Wi-Fi network. If the update doesn’t kick off automatically, you can always choose to manually trigger it by heading over to the “Software Updates” menu in the Settings panel.

New Features and Major Improvements

The question that everyone must be asking about Galaxy Watch Active 2’s latest update right is what’s new? The update introduces a bundle of improvements, but the one that stands out the most is the enhanced GPS accuracy. The smartwatch will now be significantly more accurate when using the GPS system.

To make things even better, the update is also introducing a highly anticipated feature, fall detection. As the feature’s name implies, Galaxy Watch Active 2 will now be able to determine if the user fell and call an ambulance if it’s serious. This feature might not seem that impressive at first, but it can end up saving people’s lives. The last thing that we want to mention about the new Galaxy Watch Active 2 update is that it also enhances the following features: VO2 max, running coach and running dynamics.
