Prompt Recovery and Kies

I have rooted Galaxy Gear with TWRP recovery and stock rom V700XXUAMII. Can I update my system to Tizen OS via Kies 2.6 ? Recovery and root doesn't bother Kies ?

Yes you can depending on your region. You'll have to put the gear into download mode and select firmware upgrade in kies. Type in the model number in all caps. Then serial number.

If you're in an unsupported country it will say it's unsupported. If that happens you'll have to use Odin and flash the Tizen firmware ending with NE9 first. Then you can flash the latest update.

Let me know if kies fails. I'll walk you thru Odin if it does.

When kies isn't recognizing your device, you can use odin. Odin is a separate pc based software which can flash firmware to your gear.If your gear is currently running android software and you want to upgrade to tizen, you must first flash a tizen release ending with NE9. NE9 firmware has files to get you off of android and onto tizen. Once your on Tizen you can flash a newer release like the ones ending with NF1.

In order to flash Tizen,

Download*Odin v3.09
https://mega.co.nz/#!UdRRyCAT!H4FyVx...uykgP2pT4rh8Ek

Extract Odin zip-file
Open Odin v3.09
Put gear into download mode. (Hold power button until you see it say rebooting, then tap 5 times.)
Connect to PC with usb dock.
Wait until you get a blue sign in odin. (re-download samsung drivers if no blue sign appears)
Add the firmware file to AP / PDA (firmware files below)
Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked
Click the start button, sit back and wait a few minutes

Reboot and you'll be stock Tizen, first release. In order to upgrade Tizen you can flash the newest firmware the same way.

The latest Tizen release is NF1

No need to remove kies. Download the Odin file from link above. Also download the Tizen NE9 file.
Unzip the Odin folder. Open the file marked Odin and a program will start.
Put watch in download mode and plug into PC.
Odin should show connected.
In Odin click on "ap" and navigate to the NE9 file.
Click start button.
Wait a few minutes, it should restart.
Enjoy Tizen!
Repeat process with update from link above.
