Samsung updates Gear Manager, Gear Operating System and Apps before Global Launch

Samsung are “Gearing” up for their big Tizen Samsung Gear 2 release tomorrow, by releasing their official Over The Air (OTA) updates to the Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo, bringing them both to OS R381XXU0BND8. This now includes a “Sleep” function that you can use to analyse your sleeping patterns 🙂 No changelog has surfaced as yet.

As hoped, the anticipated update for their Gear Manager application was also released, taking it to version 2.0.14040401. This brings with it the ability to connect to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and hopefully we should not need any workarounds.
Fitness with Gear is now integrated into Gear Manager, and you can also Synch your data with your Online Samsung account, after you accept some new terms and conditions. Other Gear app have been updated to Glympse 1.13, Feedly 2.2, Flick Dat 2.1.6 and Dacadoo 2.6.0 amongst others.
