Samsung is rolling out an update that would bring the latest features in its Galaxy Watch Active to older smartwatches.

Among the health features are a ‘Daily Activities’ screen, ‘Workout’ and a new tracker for outdoor swimming.

With the update, Samsung has also improved heart rate monitoring and sleep tracking.
