Samsung launched two versions of its latest Galaxy smartwatch. There’s the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, which comes with a physical rotating bezel and is a sequel to the Galaxy Watch 3, and then there’s the regular Galaxy Watch 4, which replaces the Galaxy Watch Active 2 as Samsung’s sportier smartwatch offering.

While the Watch 4 lacks a physical bezel, like Samsung’s Tizen-based watches, it gives you the option of swiping around the edges of the display to emulate a physical bezel. And with a new update for the Galaxy Watch 4, Samsung is improving the usability of the virtual touch bezel.

Some users had reported issues with scrolling using the virtual bezel feature, and the new update will hopefully fix all of them. The update also brings improved system reliability and stability, and a new animation for when you open the app drawer to access the vast library of apps you can install from the Play Store thanks to Samsung’s switch to Wear OS.

The latest Galaxy Watch 4 update weighs around 290 MB, sports firmware version R8**XXU1BUI5, and is available for both Watch 4 models. You may not be able to download it immediately as these updates are rolled out in phases, but expect to see it arrive on your watch in the next couple of days.
