New Galaxy Watch Active2 Update to Improve Always-on Mode

Great news fellow firmware upldate lovers – The Galaxy Watch Active2 has got another software update. The last update the smartwatch got was back in December. It was fairly minor as it only improved a slight bug where Always On Mode kept on turning on. As well as this, they improved the measurement of how many calories you’ve burnt based on the heart rate sensor. Pretty cool, right?

Now this time round, we have the Galaxy Watch Active2 update bringing in software version R820XXU1BTA1. The update isn’t very large, it is just under 20MB. Unfortunately, this update isn’t really as interesting as the one that came before it. According to the changelog, the smartwatch update only brings system stability improvement to the table.
