Despite being a fairly new product, Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch 5 series has already received its second software update, which comes with fixes for bugs, as well as improvements to the overall device and performance.
The new update comes with software version number R9x5USQU1AVH6, and is now available for Verizon customers, although a global roll-out should soon follow in more regions – it should be noted however that the update is primarily for cellular variants of the device.
Launched a few weeks ago, the Galaxy Watch 5 comes with some new improvements, such as the Exynos W920 chipset which comes with a 1.18Ghz dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, and the latest version of Wear OS. The Galaxy Watch 5 series also comes with a familiar hardware design for the standard model, and a completely revamped look for the “Pro” model.
In related news, Samsung’s “older” Galaxy Watch 4 likewise received an update via the Galaxy Watch 4 Manager app, which brings new watch faces as seen on the Galaxy Watch 5 and a tweaked user interface.
To check for updates, Galaxy Watch 5 owners can head over to the Galaxy Wearable app on their phones, tap on Watch Settings > Watch Software Update > Download and Install to scan for new available updates.
