Samsung releases Tizen 3.0 update for Gear S3 smartwatch

The smartwatches can now control Samsung-enabled IoT devices through Samsung Connect, including the Samsung Gear VR.

Samsung has released a new software update for its Samsung Gear S3 smartphone.

Samsung's "Value Pack" update, rolling out now, gives the Gear S3 family a few tricks in the fitness department first and foremost. That means advanced, real-time heart rate monitoring that has been improved, better controls over weight, and an experience that lets you use the Samsung Health Fitness Program to watch workouts on a nearby TV and also see your vitals.

The update including Tizen 3.0 operating system and will be available for both Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier variants.

Contacts and Calendar: Enter new contacts and create events right from your Gear S3. In the latest update, Samsung has changed how much information is displayed depending on how fast or slow you twist the bezel.

Apart from checking reminders, you can also view and edit checklist and other reminders from your smartwatch. Do note that some features, like those tied to Health, Reminders, and Contacts, require the appropriate Samsung apps to be updated and used as the default. One fast spin brings different design options for the watch face. It was originally released with Tizen OS 2.3 and is now being updated to version 3.0.

Unlike smartphones and tablets, which seemed to be created to have your face glued to it as long as possible, smartwatches work best the less time you spend fiddling with the screen or, in the Gear S3's case, the bezel.
