[Video] Samsung WatchOn Application with the Samsung Gear 2 and Samsung S5


Where is that damn Remote Control?

If you’ve got small children, like me then I’m sure you will have been in that situation many times. The solution can be something as simple as an IR Blaster on your Smartwatch, if only someone would make it happen. Hangon. Wait. Samsung has !!!

Remote Control from your Smartwatch

The IR application is as easy as to launch as any other Gear app and gives you access to basic remote control capability which not only lets you power on the device, change the volume & change channels but also more importantly lets you change the input selection on your TV (or devices)! This is a simple feature but it gets missed off so many apps.

Control from your Samsung S5

If your actually using Samsung Smartphones then you can use the full power of the Samsung WatchON application that lets you select programs you want to see and also can only play media on the TV, but also transfer it to the Smartphone if you need to go mobile in the house.

Release date for the Samsung Gear 2 is scheduled for the end of March / beginning of April. I for one can’t wait!
