Sprint Product Ambassador - Samsung Galaxy Gear after Tizen - Whats new?

Sprint Product Ambassador

So Samsung launched the Tizen SW for the original Gear to make everything more consistent across their brand. So once I got mine updated I started to look at what was new with this update. I was surprised to see that everything is identical to the new Gear 2 SW.

As you can see above the UI is the same. However, there is an option to revert the UI somewhat back to the Android view but why would you?

Also available now is the Sleep Monitoring ability which was new in the Gear 2. Every new app works too except any health/fitness app that requires the use of a heart rate monitor as that would be a hardware deficiency. I hope you get to update your watch too and enjoy the new features.

Until next time - please follow me to read my other blogs
