I specifically noted that the changelog for R825USQU1CUA2 lacked any reference to removing seconds from the always-on display -- yet, Samsung developers removed that functionality anyway. Maddening. Using the watch at night, in healthcare, I got the watch so that I could easily see the seconds counting for 30-60+ seconds, without having to keep flicking my wrist or touch the screen while I'm holding a stethoscope. Despite an annoying flicker between AOD and waking, it was completely usable because AOD showed seconds counting.

Now, with the lazy changelog and display regression, the watch is fundamentally different from what I bought. I won't be able to use it as I have been, and I'll have to sell it for that reason. I hope your development team will exercise more consideration for future updates, as this latest update offered no benefit, only cost. It's that behavior that will push me away from Samsung products.

Can I roll back the update to the previous firmware?
