Another feature of the update is that it disables the automatic sync of alarms from the smartphone that is paired with the smartwatch. I’m sure some of you out there are sighing in relief. For example, if you’ve got an alarm where your phone rings and you want your Galaxy Watch to vibrate. You couldn’t do that before. Now, you can have that special smartwatch-smartphone infusion for your alarm.

With the Galaxy Watch firmware update, you can now track swimming workouts even better than before… That is if you even want to keep the Galaxy Watch after seeing the Galaxy Watch Active 2 after seen all of its wonderful features after its launch.
