Recently we have reported on a new software update that is available Over the Air (OTA) for the Gear S2 Sport and Classic smartwatches, which has improvements to the overall user interface and some feature improvements. There is no news on the 3G version of the Classic at the moment other than T-Mobile stating that “We should keep an eye out for it” hinting that it will be soon.
