Samsung Galaxy Watch3 update brings new watchfaces, better health tracking
Samsung is releasing a major update to its Galaxy Watch3 series. It improves health tracking capabilities and adds some new watchfaces.
The watchfaces in question are borrowed from the new Galaxy Watch5 lineup and even though the two series run on different platform (remember that the Watch3 boots Tizen OS), the watchfaces are adapted to Samsung's discontinued OS.a
In addition, the Daily Activity indicator syncs data with Galaxy smartphones and a new snoring detection feature has been added. The latter was introduced with the release of Galaxy Watch4 series. It still requires your phone to be near you with granted permission for using the phone's microphone.
The firmware version is R8x0XXU1DVH4 and should arrive to you soon enough. Smartwatch updates aren't usually delayed by much.

Great to see if the update will come to my GW3 Ti that I mainly kept just due to the material and the rotary dial ... Okay, also Tizen that I like a lot 😅
