Latest Samsung Gear S3 update brings some new features

The Gear S3 Frontier and Gear S3 Classic are getting some new firmware, as of today. The versions R760XXU2BQC5 and R770XXU2BQC5, respectively, are rolling out to the two devices simultaneously.

Some small updates can be found in native apps, such as Samsung Health, S Voice, Alti-Barometer and News Briefing, which add some features to make the apps more useful. Additionally, two new complications made their way to some watch faces – Date and Music.

Find My Device also got some love. Users can now set their watches to display their contact information, should the Gear S3 get lost. Some Accessibility options also got enhanced with new features.

There are also new partner apps from companies such as Spotify and BMW, among others. Users can download them from the Galaxy Apps store. For more information on the new changes, check out the screenshot on the right.

I just read that the update improves iOS support and connectivity.. I can live with the limited features on iOS but the connectivity problems would be a deal breaker.
