Glympse is a location sharing application that is not only available as a standalone application, but can also act as an Integrated service for third party messaging applications, like BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) and Samsung’s ChatON. In order for the application to work it does require for you to have the Android version installed on your Smart phone.
What Glympse gives us is the ability to share your location for a predefined amount of time and all from the comfort of your wrist. A scenario might be that you need to let your partner know exactly where you are in Town, in realtime, whilst it is raining. Would you really want to take your expensive £600 fragile phone out of your pocket ot do this ??? NO! As the Samsung Gear 2 watch is IP67 water resistant, you don’t have to worry about the rain damaging it. This is what technology was designed to do.
Below is a hands on video showing the user interface and functionality of the Glympse application, which is designed for the Samsung Gear 2 / Gear 2 Neo Smart watches.
