Upgraded Health and Personalization Features Come to Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Watch Active2 and Galaxy Watch3


Samsung believes in putting the very best mobile experiences into the hands of as many people as possible, which includes our commitment to providing continuous software support for previous Galaxy Watch models. That’s why today, we announced that One UI 4 is available to offer Galaxy users an elevated mobile experience. And now, starting from November 15th, a new software update  will also enable Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Watch Active2 and Galaxy Watch3 owners to enjoy new features and a range of new watch faces to personalize their smartwatch experience. 

Here are some of the features you can look forward to. 

Get Help With Advanced Fall Detection Whether You Are Moving or Standing Still

Fall Detection is designed to identify hard falls when the wearer is moving, such as when they are doing physical activities, like running. Coming to Galaxy Watch Active2 and Galaxy Watch3, the new update gives you the option to select a higher Fall Detection sensitivity – you can even choose to detect a fall when you are standing still. Once a fall is detected, your watch will send an SOS notification to pre-selected contacts, helping ensure that the wearer can receive the assistance they need as soon as possible. This makes it easier to keep both yourself and your more vulnerable loved ones safe. 


Work Out With Friends Using Updated Group Challenge 

Group Challenge enables you to work out with friends no matter how far apart you are – helping you stay motivated and connected by working out together. With the new update you can now add your friends or family members to a Challenge, battling it out to see who can go the furthest or the fastest, either working as a team or competing against each other individually. Keep track of your own place in the competition or see how you’re performing as a team – all from your wrist.


Get A More Holistic Insight into Your Health 

The Galaxy Watch series has introduced a vast suite of advanced health features – from heart rate tracking and blood oxygen measurement to sleep and stress management . 

The Perfect Watch Face for You

Watch faces are a fun and simple way to make your Galaxy Watch reflect your personal style. Now, you can enjoy 10 additional watch faces that first launched with the Galaxy Watch4. From the bright and bold Big Number and Active watch faces, to the stylish and minimalist Classic – more options mean more freedom to express yourself. 

Some of the new watch faces are designed to enable you to take personalization a step further. Tapping on these watch faces will enable you to pick between different background or text colors, while the Animal watch faces allows you to choose between different colorful animated creatures like a monkey, rabbit, sheep or cat.
