According to the information, Huawei Watch Ultimate users can now upgrade to the latest HarmonyOS version 22.214.171.124. This firmware update will bring the new satellite SMS capability for the users.
Users of the Huawei Watch Ultimate are required to install the new Huawei Health app from AppGallery. The version to check for a new update is “126.96.36.1995” or above.
Check for Update:
Open up the Huawei Health app, then select Huawei Watch Ultimate device. Then scroll down to select firmware update settings and then check for a new update.
During the upgrade, make sure your watch remains in the range of the Bluetooth connection. And it doesn’t interrupt any interactions. Also, the installation may take some time to transfer the update package.
Once installed, the user will have to fetch a dedicated Beidou Satellite SMS app on the Huawei Watch Ultimate. This will enable the user to send and receive satellite SMS directly from the wrist.
Huawei is the first smartphone maker, which introduced the satellite SMS feature with the Huawei Mate 50 series in October last year. The first generation of this capability allowed users to only send the SMS to a receipient. Therefore it was called one-way satellite SMS.
Alongside, Huawei also became the first company to launch satellite communication into a smartwatch with Huawei Watch Ultimate. Despite its testing, the feature is finally here and it’s ready to use.
Currently, users have not reported retrieving this new firmware update for Huawei Watch Ultimate with the satellite SMS feature but we’ll keep you posted.
