Samsung Wearable devices are to be paired with a host device (ideally a Smartphone), for connectivity and other services that complete the user experience:

  • Gear Manager to manage the delivery and set up widgets on wearable devices.
  • Wearable Manager Service to receive and install the widget on wearable devices, and forwards the information to the Gear Manager settings.
  • SAP (Samsung Accessory Protocol) provides a connection between the host and wearable devices and supports a wide range of connectivity technologies, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). For more information, please refer to this web page .

The following figure shows the architecture of the host and wearable devices including Gear software Manager.
Below you can see the relationship between the Host IDE and the wearable:
