The first software update for the Galaxy Watch 3 is currently out, with Samsung starting its rollout just a day subsequent to releasing its best in class lineup of wearables. This over-the-air release was in reality even referenced at the current week’s Galaxy Unpacked 2020 where Samsung authoritatively declared the Galaxy Watch 3.
All the more explicitly, it incorporates support for blood oxygen monitoring, VO2max, sleep ratings, and advanced running analytics, which were all promoted as a portion of the key Galaxy Watch 3 features at the current week’s launch occasion. The OTA update is 80MB in size and can be installed from the Galaxy Wearable application, accepting that it’s now accessible for download in your domain.
As Samsung effectively noted on Wednesday, blood oxygen analytics are intended to give informative insights into one’s health and aren’t sufficiently exact to be named medical information. What lawfully comprises “medical data” fluctuates by nation, which is apparently why this usefulness isn’t accessible in each and every market in which the Galaxy Watch 3 series was released. In a alphabetical order: Algeria, Angola, Canada, France, Iran, Japan, Libya, South Africa, and Thailand won’t gain admittance to this feature.
The first Galaxy Watch 3 update will apparently take at least a few days to be completely sent. This won’t be the last significant wave of feature increments to the new wearable lineup, either. For instance, Samsung is as yet resolving ECG support for the Galaxy Watch 3. This software methodology appears to mimick that seen a year ago with the Galaxy Watch Active 2, which additionally lacked day-one ECG monitoring.
