Jan 25, 2015

Its been a while since we have had a Samsung Gear S Firmware update, or does it just feel like it to me? well it looks like the latest firmware update is being pushed out in Germany (possibly other countries) as we speak via a Over The Air (OTA) update.

According to a tweet by Florian Schaub he has downloaded version R750XXU1BOA7 which is a 32.3Mb update. At first glance he says there doesn’t seem to be any obvious feature changes, so its probably mostly operating system improvements.


We will keep checking to see if our UK version of the Gear S gets an update.

  • Launch Samsung Gear Manager

  1. Hi im in the UK and downloaded this update last night everything looks the same apart from now the watch styler app does not connect to the Gear S so you cant send any themes to your watch even with the latest Watch Styler update.Any solutions out there?

  2. Got it in Orlando FL today. You can now add custom ringtones and change the appearance of the settings color theme. Also you get a couple of new clocks. I am very pleased with being able to add my own ringtones!

  3. Got Mine in Los Angeles, California.. Just downloading it right so awaiting to see what changes it has brought with the new update!

  4. Got mine about two weeks ago. Now watch won't last a day charged. Takes over 40% just tracking sleep in less than 7 hours. WiFi is off, mobile networks is always on auto but note 4 is always close by. that lady update screwed my battery life.

  5. Dear Tizen developers. We still waiting for standalone (independent) firmware from Samsung phones. Manage contacts, notes and comments directly in Gear S 🙂
