How could it happen? Didn’t you know it’s always been on the side? Whenever you try to download new features on your device, you seem to get bogged down in a swamp, and even if you had a way out, you still wimped out because who misses something that needs to be on their sack?

Galaxy Watch 4 Wearables Software update

A month back, Samsung rolled out a gigantic feature update for the Galaxy Watch 4, which unfortunately mangled the ‘raise to wake’ gesture of the device. Currently, the firm is suited up to join a new party with a newfangled software update for Galaxy Watch 4 wearables, a big question would be,

Does it have the obtained medicine to cure raise to wake gesture bug?

Let’s find out what the software has in its bag to proffer.

Galaxy Watch 4 Jan 2023 Android Security Patch Update 2

Samsung is rolling out the second January 2023 Android security patch update for the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic Bluetooth variant. The official changelog for this update only mentions enhancements for system security and stability, however, there are still possibilities that it also brings off a mend for the already found raise-to-wake gesture issue for the Galaxy Watch 4 customers.

Problems with Raise to Wake Galaxy Watch Feature

The raise to wake feature is one of the most beautiful installments in the device, but several users of Galaxy Watch 4 and 5 have taken umbrage at the irregular turns of the rise-to-wake feature in their watches. When users whirl their hands above the ground, beating up gravity to wake up the watch, the screen goes blank promptly.

It goes off within a fraction of a second, probably humans don’t have the superpower to catch up a light speed like TV superheroes. As for now, we don’t have any clue whether the new update would resolve the issue, but we hope It should mend it.
