Samsung Gear S Firmware R750XXU1BOC1 Finally released for UK BTU Variant

The Samsung Gear S Smartwatch has been getting the firmware update R750XXU1BOC1 in several countries over the last couple of months, but I’m pleased to see the BTU version has FINALLY reached the UK shores. The file is available via a 33.84Mb Over the Air (OTA) update or you can download the full firmware file from Sammobile at 430Mb. Users are reporting a definite increase in battery life and a couple of extra watch faces are now available.
