Gear Manager Updated

Today, the Gear Manager app, which is used to connect a Smartphone to a Samsung Gear smartwatch, received an update taking it to version 2.2.16101261. Immediately you can see a brand new brighter and sleeker looking User Interface (UI) which looks more in-line with the Samsung S-Health fitness app. We also get support for Samsung's upcoming Gear S3 smartwatch, Improved stability, and bug fixes.


When you launch the app you are now presented with two tabs, Info and settings. On the Info tab there is a new battery section that shows your current battery level, but on selection shows app usage since the watch was last fully charged. This is a great tool to find any misbehaving apps that might be causing you battery issues. There are two other sections for suggested watchfaces and apps which take you directly to Samsung Galaxy Apps.

In the Setting tabs you have all the usual configuration options that you need including a Gear connection option, that lets you configure how you connect to the smartwatch over WiFi and what profiles it uses. Using the app it definitely feels faster navigating around the new UI, but also when swapping between Gear Manager and Galaxy Apps.



Manual Update

If you do not get a notification to update the app you can do it manually by following the Instructions below:

  • Launch Gear Manager App on your Smartphone
  • Select Settings
  • Scroll down and Select App version
  • Select Update
