Since switching to a Samsung Galaxy Active from WearOS I have loved the battery life and features of the Tizen OS. I have been looking a little enviously at the new Galaxy Active 2’s features but it looks like the features are coming the Galaxy Active and Galaxy Watch.

The update adds a touch bezel to the Active so you scroll through the OS using the edge of the screen. The Active was the only Galaxy watch without the touch or physical rotating bezel so this is a welcome addition.

The update has improved Bixby voice control and adds British English, French, German, Italian and Spanish languages. There are new watch faces and additional customisation option with new sub-dials (24) and complications. There is a new low heart rate alert feature and improved UI on apps like the stopwatch. All welcome changes that I am looking forward to trying.

The update is rolling out to US and South Korea first with other regions following soon.
