Samsung is pushing out a big update to the Gear S3 and Gear Sport which introduces a host of new features to the smartwatch. Both the Gear S3 and Gear Sport are now receiving updates to Tizen v4.0.0.2. The Gear S3’s update is firmware version R760XXU2DSA1, and the Gear Sport is getting firmware version R600XXU1BSA1.

Gear S3 WorkoutThe latest Gear S3 update brings some improvements in the watch’s usability and functionality. Samsung Health now supports more indoor workouts and back-to-back workouts. The Health Widget also gets support for sleep stages information. Quick Panel gets an improved UI for faster and easier interaction.

Samsung has given the Quick Panel an improved UI with this update too, and there are now theater and sleep modes that can be toggled from that Quick Panel. The notification panel can now show MMS messages and automatically play GIFs. Along with this, the Messages app can now save draft messages and currently supports more than 1,000 emojis.

According to the official changelog shared by the folks over at Tizen Help, the update size comes to nearly 300MB, which is pretty large for a wearable device with 4 gigs of internal storage space in total. The Samsung Health app is at the top of the revision list, followed by sleep stages information and two advanced user modes added, which can easily avoid disturbances.

The Value Pack updates for the Gear S3 and Gear Sport are now rolling out in the U.S., although it’s expected to reach other countries in the days ahead.
