The first software update for Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5 series has just been released. In the US, the LTE model rollout has started. Units connected to Verizon’s network particularly are receiving the update. In the upcoming days, there might be a bigger release.

The Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro LTE models will receive a remedy for a problem with Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) messages, according to Verizon’s changelog shared . A public safety system called WEA notifies residents of impending natural catastrophes and other risks in their neighborhood. But if the message had more than 255 characters, the new Samsung smartwatches would not receive it. This update resolves the issue.

With the sixth One UI Watch 4.5 beta update, Samsung just released the same patch for the Galaxy Watch 4 series LTE models as well. Its software looks to be the problem here. One UI Watch 4.5 is stable on the Galaxy Watch 5 series, and it is also available on the new watches. The latest firmware version R9x5USQU1AVH2 is now available for the Galaxy Watch 5 40mm (SM-R905), Galaxy Watch 5 44mm (SM-R915), and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro (SM-R925) LTE devices on Verizon’s network.

Advertisement Nothing more is mentioned in the changelog, so that’s probably it. You can anticipate his update if you’re one of the select few Americans who has already gotten their Galaxy Watch 5 pre-orders. On a connected smartphone, the Galaxy Wearable app should notify you when the OTA (over the air) deployment is ready. From the app’s Watch Settings menu, you may check for updates. Of course, you can also check for updates by going to Watch software update in the Settings app on your watch.

After the August 10 launch, the business immediately began taking pre-orders for the new items, which also include the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro TWS headphones. In some areas, pre-order shipments even began the following day.
