Following an extensive One UI Watch 4 beta program for the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic, Samsung finally released the stable version for the latest Galaxy watches. One UI Watch 4.5 is based on Google’s Wear OS 3.5 featuring Android 11. Today, yet another OTA update has rolled out across the globe featuring critical stability improvements.
This is Galaxy Watch 4’s first OTA update after One UI Watch 4.5. It is a hotfix update that significantly improves system stability and reliability. Stabilization codes for watch operations have also been applied.
However, the security patch remains the same from August 2022. The build version has changed to GVI3.
The newest update is now live across the globe including EU (Europe), Australia, Canada, the United States, and India.
One UI Watch 4.5 Update
One UI Watch 4.5 OTA update is already available for the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic devices.
Samsung discontinued its custom Tizen UI in favor of Google’s Wear OS software. After almost a year of development, we finally received One UI Watch 4.5 last month with firmware build GVH2.
The best part is you can now connect your Google account and run all Google apps like Assistant, and the newly added Google Home, Phone, Weather, and more.
Most importantly, you get all the Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro watch faces for the Galaxy Watch 4 with the latest Galaxy Watch4 plugin.
