South Korean company Samsung Electronics announced a software update for its Galaxy Watch Active2 smartwatch, which includes new features for communication and health monitoring. The software is already available for download (market dependent).
Running Analysis is designed to help you improve your running technique and avoid injury. It tracks a variety of workout metrics such as body asymmetry, fluidity, stiffness ratio, flapping and ground contact time.
In addition, with the VO2 Max instrument, the user can measure the maximum volume of oxygen VO2 absorbed during intense exercise.
The Fall Detection function, detecting a possible fall, at the same time sends an SOS notification to the pre-specified contacts so that the user is provided with the necessary assistance on time.
Instead of reaching for your smartphone when you receive a notification on your wearable device, the Galaxy Watch Active2 lets you view text, emoji, and photos right from your wrist. Smart Reply provides a recommended reply to a message or photo using advanced image recognition technology.
The Galaxy Watch Active2 display now shows not only the received message, but also the chat history to make it easier to continue the conversation.
The latest update also includes additional messaging tools: you can send AR Emoji Stickers and Bitmoji stickers from your device.
The update makes it possible to seamlessly switch between different gadgets while listening to your favorite tracks, from smartphones to Galaxy Buds or wearable devices.
In addition, the Galaxy Watch Active2 has received the “Scroll capture” function: now screenshots of the screen are automatically sent to the smartphone as images. This tool allows you to save message threads, training information and other data for future reference.
