The Samsung Galaxy Watch3 has received a new firmware, which brings bug fixes, stability improvements and a few new features.

The release - R840XXU1BUA8 - is live in the US & South Korea and involves a 74MB download. It enables support for Samsung's SmartThings Find, which allows your Galaxy phone to help you find your Galaxy Watch3 on a map. The service also allows you to ring the watch to help you locate it. SmartThings Find supports all manner of Galaxy devices like phones, tablets and even the Galaxy Buds Pro.

The Galaxy Watch3 update also introduces a new group-walking challenge, support for work with new fitness programs and a built-in HandWash feature that reminds you to wash your hands. Now the time it takes for the watch to recognize you've started a workout has been reduced.
