Google distributes a new update for Android devices every month, which brings security fixes that enhance the overall security of the device; for instance, Google has introduced the March 2023 update, which brings several security patches that resolves the issues of functions that are reported earlier. The same update is now available for the Pixel watches, which are running on Wear OS 3.5. This indicates that Galaxy Watches will soon receive the March update with significant improvements.

In the case of Samsung, its Galaxy devices get some extra functionalities that are exclusive. But as said earlier, all the watches get the same changes that the mountain view company introduced for Wear OS, which lets us know about the possible features that could be available for Galaxy watches.
