Since, last month, the company released two One UI Watch 4.5 builds. Now, in a recent development, Samsung has now started seeding the third One UI Watch 4.5 to the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 classic in the US. The latest software update for both these smartwatches brings in a couple of bug fixes and improvements to Watchface GUI and wear detection accuracy.
