The title says it all.

Changelog for our watch:
  • Samsung Health - Support various indoor workouts and back-to-back workout.
  • Samsung Health Widget - Samsung Health Widget now also supports and provides sleep stages information.
  • Advanced - Two advanced modes (Theater, Sleep) are added to keep user from disturbance during specific time and place. Modes can be toggled from quick panel.
  • Quick Panel - Newly added quick settings. Easier and faster interaction.
  • Messages - Draft messages can now be saved. Additionally, showing MMS image on notification cover view and animated messages are automatically played. Replying is now quicker and easier. Over 1,000 emojis supported.
  • Music - User can change to different music play source on Watch instead of using a Phone.
  • Setting menu - Improved categorizing of menus for better dicovery of features and items.

Things I've noticed so far that are new and not included in the official changelog (Tizen 4 perks):
  • You can now toggle whether to take or not screenshots by pressing and holding the power button and swiping the screen from left to right, inside a Settings menu.
  • New permissions management: When you open an app that requires Storage permission or Microphone permission, those will be asked to you directly instead of instantly granted (basically like since Android 6.0+).
    Permissions can be managed straight from Settings > Apps > Permissions.
  • Sliding down the Quick Settings menu feels a ton lot smooooooooooother.
  • Another really awesome feature is the ability to read not just the most recent from your messaging apps, like before, but also being able to read any previous messages in a really nice chat bubble view. Check out the last attached image as example.

Version: R600XXU1BSA1/R600OXA1BSA1/
Size: ~300MB.

Screenshots attached, enjoy!

That screenshot I attached is from a WhatsApp conversation on its own.

Seems to be a staged rollout, keep calm and wait for it!

CSC is the country code that your watch or Samsung phone comes with. It defines the preloaded apps, and the updates it should receive but it's easily changeable. XAR is the region, which is a generic USA one.

Have a look at the guide here if you wish to take the risk to change it on your watch: https://forum.xda-developers.com/gea...0-csc-t3784226
