We’ve had some good news for our Gear S3 readers in the UK and now its time to continue the good “vibes” for our Gear S3 T-Mobile readers in the US. Today, T-Mobile have announced that Samsung Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier devices are now being updated to Tizen 18.104.22.168, which includes the Gear S3 Value Pack. Now, I’m presuming this download already has the battery fix included as it wouldn’t make sense releasing a download without an important patch pre-applied!
The Value pack update has plenty of goodies for you guys including improved heart rate monitoring accuracy and nutrition management for workouts, the ability to create contacts and events on the Gear S3, and the ability to view and edit checklists as well as video and web reminders created on their synced smartphone on the watch. Widgets have also had a makeover and look cleaner with more information displayed. There is lots more to check out so get it now as its a 265.88MB download. You should get an update notification but in case you don’t then use the manual instructions as detailed below.
