Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE finally receiving One UI update

Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE finally receiving One UI update
Samsung quietly released the One UI update to most of its compatible smartwatches back in May, but one model, in particular, was skipped from the initial rollout, the Galaxy Watch LTE. For whatever reasons, it took Samsung almost one more month to bring One UI to the LTE-enabled Galaxy Watch, but as the saying goes, better late than never.

Since the Galaxy Watch LTE comes in two different versions, it's important to mention that both the US and European models are now getting the update. If you own a Galaxy Watch LTE 46mm, you should see a new update that weighs in at 117MB, TizenHelp reports.

As far as the changes go, the first thing you'll notice is the visual improvements thanks to new animations and graphics. A lot of new features have been implemented as well, including daily activity, sleeping mode, additional notifications in various scenarios, and a brand new outdoor swimming activity under the workout feature.

The Settings menu has been tweaked too for easier discovery, while the Quick panel now supports additional pages to allow quick access to setting control. New watch faces have also been added, along with Samsung Health. Another important improvement is the new Battery Optimization feature that will undoubtedly prolong the smartwatch's battery life.

With this update,I thought they were going to fix the biggest problems as floor counting,sleep monitoring,barometer/altimeter.Unfortunately, they did nothing, just a new graphics.After I changed a watch,after I changed a mother board,still same problems.The worst decision I've ever made, buying something!

Update jacked up some features on my 46mm. Samsung health is now a mess, won't show galaxy watch within health app. But, it still has my old s2 3g listed. That's just a minor example.
