Samsung just release a new software update that improves the battery life of the Samsung Gear S3 SmartWatch.
Samsung released a software update for the Samsung Gear 3 a few months back. However, even though the Gear 3 update was intended for good it affected the device’s battery life negatively.
Many users complained of their Gear S3’s battery life decreasing down to one-third of the battery life the device offered before the update.
Samsung later released a revised version of the update and even released another update intended to improve battery life later on as well. This new software update is the third software update targeting improved battery life of the Samsung Gear S3.
The latest software upgrade comes as firmware version R760XXU2CRC3. It was reported that the update is now being released in South Korea, Canada and the United States.
In addition to improving the smartwatches battery life, it also delivers a more stable Bluetooth connectivity. This means users will now experience less interruptions in the connection between smartwatch and smartphone.
Samsung also plans to start releasing the update to other markets very soon. If you own the Gear S3 you can check your device for the update by going to About Gear » Update Gear software section in the Settings tab on the gear app on your phone.
