Galaxy Gear firmware update finally comes to the US
Many Galaxy Gear users in the US has been clamoring to get the latest firmware update for their watches and today it has finally arrived. The update is available now and brings along enhanced notifications for apps, better battery life and improved range. It’s a great update for Gear users but there is still a way to go to make it a “great” device.
- Improved range and connection: Samsung says the Gear can now stray a little farther from the phone before losing its connection. That’s good — it felt pretty short before. The automatic connection feature has been improved as well.
- Improved battery life. Again, that addresses one of the chief complaints about the Gear. We’ll have to see how much longer it lasts.
- S Voice search should be faster.
- “Your Gear’s performance has been improved and its features have been enhanced.”
You should be able to update your Gear through the app on your device, but if you’re having issues you may have to try your luck with Samsung KIES via USB.
