Samsung Galaxy Watch and Watch Active getting a new firmware update which brings many Galaxy Watch 3 features

The Watch Active is the most capable (and the priciest) of the lot, and the one I’ll be focussing on now. Strangely enough, as I write this, the Watch Active’s successor has just been announced in the form of the Galaxy Watch Active 2. However, there’s no timeline on when Active 2 is likely to launch in India. So let’s just talk about the Watch Active, shall we? And If I might add, it does come across as a wearable worth wearing. Read on to figure why I say that.

Samsung continuously updating its device with the most recent updates, not only the Android smartphone and tablets. It also updating its smartwatches. Samsung launched Galaxy Watch and the Galaxy Watch Active with Tizen OS 4.0, but they are now running on the Tizen OS 5.5 update.
