The problem with a lot of modern gadgets is that they tend to get outdated fast, where the models offered the year later come with features that makes the previous year’s models feel a bit outdated. Then there is also the issue of software updates where most OEMs tend to focus on their latest products and end up neglecting their older ones.

If you own one of Samsung’s older Gear devices, you’ll be pleased to learn that Samsung has recently started to roll out updates for older Gear models like the Gear S3 and the Gear Sport that have added some new features to it, giving them a second lease on life. These updates seem to be health related so if you want to use these watches for the gym or for a workout in general, hopefully these new features will help with that.

These updates include additions to Samsung Health that should help track more workouts, and users will be able to string together various workouts at the gym. There is also the Health Widget, Theater and Sleep modes,, and so on. The initial roll out of the update was limited to the US but we imagine that is usually the case for most updates and users in other parts of the world should be able to expect their updates soon, so do keep an eye out for it.
