The firmware update brings the software to MK7 with better notifications from non-Samsung apps (but you’ll have to dive down a couple layers in the Gear Manager app to activate them). Also now its compatible with the Galaxy S3. Checkout the full Galaxy Gear New Firmware features below:
- Improved range and connection: Samsung says the Gear can now stray a little farther from the phone before losing its connection. That’s good — it felt pretty short before. The automatic connection feature has been improved as well.
- Improved battery life. Again, that addresses one of the chief complaints about the Gear. We’ll have to see how much longer it lasts.
- S Voice search should be faster.
- “Your Gear’s performance has been improved and its features have been enhanced.” Whatever that means.
If you getting any problem on downloading update you can also download the update via Kies software.
