Update: Users are reporting that this update is now going LIVE in the US
Recently we have reported on a new software update that is available Over the Air (OTA) for the Gear S2 Sport and Classic smartwatches, which has improvements to the overall user interface and some feature improvements. There is no news on the 3G version of the Classic at the moment other than T-Mobile stating that "We should keep an eye out for it" hinting that it will be soon.
On the 15th July, the Netherlands and Germany were the first couple of countries to receive the update, which measures in at only 61.1MB. Today we have seen the update go live in Sweden and also the UK. Unfortunately there is no concrete news of other markets, such as the USA, as to exactly when they will receive the update.
The firmware version numbers are R732XXU2DPFB for the Gear S2 classic and R730XXU2DPFB for the Gear S2 Sport. It brings My Photo watch face, social sharing for activities, automatic sleep tracking, new S Voice commands, a new contacts app and widget, and other new features to the smartwatch.
