Samsung Galaxy Gear update extends battery life on watch, and more
The update also improves basic features of the Galaxy Gear Smart Relay function, which allows Galaxy Gear users to open tasks on their smartphone using the watch. While Samsung has not made any claims about the update improving battery life, European Galaxy Gear users who have received it say that the update does indeed extend battery life on the timepiece. And the lift and pause gesture that activates the watch is improved following the update.
Originally, the watch worked only with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but those Samsung devices getting updated to Android 4.3 such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S III, are also beginning to support the watch.
