Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 second update brings GPS stability improvements

Last month Samsung announced the new generation of Galaxy Watch; Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. And it is available to users from August 26. The Galaxy Watch 5 has already received the first update before its release. And now the Galaxy Watch 5 is getting the second incremental update based on One UI Watch 4.5.

The first update was rolled out to all users who had review units or had received the Watch before the release date. And if you got the Watch 5 after the release date, it may have already been updated in the first build. Since the Watch 5 is still a new device, Samsung may be rolling out several incremental updates in a short amount of time.
