A firmware update is rolling out for the Samsung Gear S3 Classic and Frontier smartwatches Tuesday. The update version R760XXU2BQC5 and R770XXU2BQC5 are available for the Classic and Frontier devices, respectively.

The update will bring changes to the smartwatches, and some of them are:

  • Minor updates to native apps such as Samsung Health, S Voice, Alt-Barometer and News Briefing.
  • Date and Music addition for some watch faces.
  • A new Find My Device Feature that will let the smartwatches display contact information in case the devices get lost.
  • New accessibility options
  • New partner apps from companies such as Spotify and BMW, downloadable from the Galaxy Apps Store.

One of the changes which will help consumers make better use of the smartwatch models is the Samsung Health update, which adds customizable pace-coaching and heart rate zone information for running. Such features already exist in smartwatches such as the Fitbit Alta HR.

Another new feature is the S-voice upgrade, which lets users set date and time via voice input while setting reminders. Earlier, users had to set them manually. The new Find My Device feature, though, might not be useful in case the watch gets stolen. However, it could come in handy if a good Samaritan finds your lost smartwatch. The changelog also mentions Samsung Internet for Gear feature, which will let users connect to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on the Gear itself, as opposed to just getting alerts and then looking stuff up on their smartphones.

The new Spotify support and BMW connected car features could help users who want to set their music or control their car using their smartwatch.

There was no word in the changelog about Bixby support, but the artificial intelligence-based voice assistant could probably make an apparence on Samsung smartwatches in a future software update post the Samsung Galaxy S8 launch Wednesday.
