Samsung Gear Watch Designer is an application that you can use to create watchfaces for Gear Smartwatches and fitness wearables. Samsung often releases updates for the app bringing in new features. Last month, Samsung released an update with added features and support for the newly newly released Gear Fit2 Pro and Gear Sport along with the already existing Gear SGear S2Gear Fit 2 and Gear S3 support. Further improving the functionality of the app, Samsung has now released a new and updated version 1.5.1 Beta for the app. The updated version supports both Windows and Mac Operating Systems (OS) but no luck for Linux users yet.

The app has an easy-to-use user Interface to work with and you can design stunning watchfaces without the need of learning any coding or scripting language. Thus this app is basically ideal for both amateurs and experts. The app has some very well designed features like powerful animations and conditional line based component control, that you can use to create a masterpiece of your own. Once you finish, you can upload it to the store and generate some revenue from your efforts.
