The second Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 software update is live


An official update to the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro appears to be rolling out – one that promises performance improvements for those using the latest Samsung smartwatches.

Although both models were only released in August, the company is already on its second software update – marked as version R9x5USQU1AVH6 – running on Wear OS 3.5.

The patch notes were discovered after being detailed on Verizon Support Page for the Galaxy Watch 5.

And while it’s apparently a solid update that should add stability improvements and bug fixes for Watch 5 owners, it’s not necessarily what users were hoping for, the sensor of temperature present on both devices is still not activated.

Expect that to debut in the near future, and until then, let’s take a look at exactly how to download this latest update from Samsung – if you haven’t already been asked, of course.

From what we can see, only LTE-enabled models are currently receiving the update, but you can check by following these steps:

1. Open the Galaxy Wearable app on your connected smartphone.

2. Go to “Watch settings”.

3. Tap “Watch Software Update” and wait for it to check for an update.

4. If an update is ready, tap “Download and Install“.

Interestingly, despite testing both new smartwatches over the last month or so on our wrists, we’ve noticed very few – if any – issues or areas needing performance improvements, so we’ll be interested to see if there is a noticeable change in experience following this download.
