The Samsung Gear Manager application has been updated to version 2.2.15011799 today, and we are hoping it resolves some issues people are facing like the “Unfortunately, Gear Plugin has stopped” message. I did have an issue with Gear Manager disconnecting from the Gear Smartwatch when checking for a firmware update previously, which this update resolves, so that is definitely a step in the right direction.
Below are the most notable of changes that I can see from the update. There are probably lots more under the hood.
If you have not got a notification to update your Gear Manager App then you can manually update it via Samsung Galaxy Apps.
If you have updated to this version and are still having issues, you can install an old gear manager version manually until the next Gear Manager update.
How is this update for you? Let us know in the comments.
