Recently Samsung has rolled out an update for its smartwatch – Galaxy Active. The update has come up with some great UI and performance updates. But the most interesting update is its water sensitivity. The watch can now detect if you are swimming or having any water-based activity. There is also a great feature for players that can detect and notify about the low heart rate.
The update also had an impact on Samsung’s voice assistant Bixby which is getting mainstream with every update. Samsung says that Bixby can now help with many hands-free tasks such as it can offer the user with the customized exercise routines, presumably by learning from what activities you usually do. It can also control smart things compatible devices connected with the Galaxy active watch such as smart light, light bulbs, and camera through the voice commands being sent directly from the watch.
Galaxy Watch doesn’t have a rotating bezel which its predecessor used to have and was fun to use. To make matters worse, the User interface forces users to swirl their fingers around the perimeter of the display as if there is any rotating bezel. The update has removed the gestured and now users can easily spin through the app by horizontally swiping across the screen. Lastly, another great change is that the watch’s Good night mode has been redesigned. It has now bespoke view with relaxing color. It no long barrage you with unnecessary bed-time details. According to the recent rumors, Samsung may soon unveil the Galaxy watch active 2 with touch-sensitive bezels at unpacked event of launching Galaxy Note 10. This might not be as fun as it used to be with the old actual rotating bezels but it is better than what they have done with the current watch.
