Samsung is pretty good about supporting its smartphones, and arguably it’s even better when it comes to smartwatches. This week, Samsung has rolled out an update to both its 2020-released Galaxy Watch 3 and the 2018-released Galaxy Watch with some Wi-Fi and other fixes in tow.

Software versions R840XXU1BUD1 and R800XXU1FUD1 have started rolling out to the Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Watch respectively, building on Tizen to fix a few issues. For both watches, the update works on “improving Wi-Fi stability” as well as “messaging app stability.” There are no specifics beyond that for either watch, but the Galaxy Watch 3 also gets some miscellaneous “system stability and reliability” improvements.

Galaxy Watch3 (SM-R840)

Build Number : R840XXU1BUD1

Tizen version : Tizen 5.5.0.2

  • Improved Messaging App stability 
  • Improved Wi-Fi stability 
  • Improved system stability and reliability

Update 4/30: This update is now rolling out to the Galaxy Watch Active 2. Carrying a similar model number, the update brings the exact same changelog as what we saw on the Galaxy Watch 3 last week.


Notably, the Galaxy Watch picked up a much bigger update just a couple of months ago. In February, the watch added several features from Samsung’s latest smartwatch, which included Bitmoji integration, voice-guided workouts, and more.
