Samsung Gear S3 gets big update

If you're using a Samsung Gear S3, jump into the Galaxy Wearable app and check for the update.

Samsung started rolling out the Tizen 4.0 update to the Gear S3 andd Gear Sport a couple of days back, bringing numerous new features and tweaks from the latest Galaxy Watch to the older Gear smartwatches. With the new version Samsung Health now supports more indoor activities and training sessions to strengthen the back muscles. There are also some changes to the health widget and it now adds support for sleep stages and more. The new Theater Mode and Goodnight mode will prevent the watch from disturbing you when youre at an event or sleeping (these modes are accessible from the Quick Panel).

Samsung has also refreshed the sleep tracking abilities of both smartwatches.


It also makes these older devices a bargain, offering Samsung Galaxy Watch features at a more affordable price.

The Settings tab now allows users to remap the double press of the Home key to launch specific apps. You could also search for the update via About Gear - Software Update in the Galaxy-Wearable-App. Over 1,000 emojis supported.

A few annoyances were also fixed with the update - several users are reporting on Reddit that you can now get rid of the persistent Gear notification that consistently popped up on paired phones by long pressing and disabling them. Those who did not receive an automatic notification yet can check manually by going to About Gear Update Gear software in the Settings tab of the Samsung Gear app on the connected smartphone.
