Samsung has released an update for its Gear application on the Galaxy Apps Store. The upgrade bundles support for the recently-announced Gear Fit2 Pro and Gear Sport, as well as a handful of user interface improvements.
Here’s the full changelog:
- Gear Sport supported.
- Gear Fit2 Pro supported.
- Initial Connection Screen improved.
- News & Tips card added.
- Card showing Galaxy Apps banner added.
- New phrases added to Quick Messages
We have to say, it’s a little strange that the firm has waited until now to introduce compatibility for the Gear Fit2 Pro and Gear Sport, considering the former started shipping to some customers in Europe on September 9.
The Gear Sport is scheduled to be released in the region on October 27.
For those in need of a refresher, the Gear Fit2 Pro is essentially a waterproof variant of the Gear Fit 2, while the Gear Sport is a fitness-orientated wearable designed to bridge the gap between the Gear S3 classic and Gear S3 frontier.
