Gear S3 gets a firmware update

Gear S3 smartwatch is now available in many markets around the world including the US, UK, South Korea, Vietnam, Canada, France, Italy, Germany, Saudi Arabia, and many others.

Now, Samsung have released a firmware / software update for the Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier taking it to version R760XXU1APK6 / R760OXA1APK6. This is the second firmware update for the wearable devices as it has previously received version R360XXU1BPK5 / R360OXA1BPK5.

The update brings with it improved GPS performance that can be used in apps like S-Health, Golf Navi, and the recently released Speedometer app. Also you get changes to the Tizen Zone settings in the World Clock App for Russia (Magadan, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Novosibirsk).

This can be considered as a relatively small update as it has only a small download size of 14.06MB. We expect this update to be distributed to all markets that is currently retailing the S3, so you might have to wait a little while for it to get to you.

We will have our hands on review of the S3 up shortly, but in the meanwhile you can see our unboxing video of this smartwatch.
