Talking about the biggest feature bundled with the new update, it brings fall detection to the Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Watch Active 2 devices.

So, users of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Watch Active 2 can now enable this feature and will get information about their fall even when they are standing still.

If a user falls, then the watch will automatically send an SOS notification to pre-selected contacts and inform them about the fall.

Samsung is also updating the Group Challenge feature with this new watch update

Another important feature that is getting an update is the Group Challenge feature. Using this feature, users can add their friends or family members to a challenge.

This challenge could either be to work as a team or compete against each other. This healthy competition would allow users to stay active and accomplish tasks in a fun way.

A total of 10 Galaxy watch faces are also arriving with the new update. These watch faces were launched alongside the debut of the Galaxy Watch 4.

These watch faces are designed in such a way to give users the freedom to personalize their devices a bit more. Users can choose between multiple backgrounds and text colors. All these are accessible by simply tapping on the watch faces.

The animal’s watch face lets you switch and select between different colorful animated creatures. This includes monkeys, rabbits, sheep, or cats.

As noted by Android Central, this new update for older Galaxy watches will be first available for the Bluetooth versions. Later it will arrive for LTE versions.

Notably, the update is rolling out today for users in USA and Korea. Other regions are expected to join the bandwagon pretty soon. There isn’t much clarity if Samsung plans to bring these new features to all other watches or not.

If you have an eligible Samsung Galaxy watch, then you can update your device via the Galaxy Wearable app on your phone.
