I went to T-Mo today but the only sales person willing to help only had a Note 3. It had the 1.49 Gear Fit app but that app couldn't pair with the Fit. Which is exactly the same issue I get when I try to pair the fit using the 1.49 app on a Nexus 5 - no pairing.

Does the firmware update work differently on a Galaxy S5? How is 1.49 on an S5 going to work if it can't pair?

do you mind sharing with me that apk? the verision 1.25 ? I have 1.49 and cant connect

For those who are having trouble with updating the firmware on the gear fit and don't have access to a galaxy device the watch can be updated via Kies(3.0) on a PC.

Like being written before, until Samsung not release for his Galaxy smartphones Android 5.0 there is probably no way to make work Gear Fit under Lollipop (I mean gear fit manager app), so don't ask questions that has been answered.

Works fine on my Nexus 5 running Android 5.0. I am stilling running the 1.49 APK. You just do all the same things as described at the start of this thread. Nothing different that I know of.

I do notice it sometimes says the Gear Manager has stopped running so I have to reboot my phone.

Pardon me for asking, i had not seen any posts before on lollipop and thus asked the question. Had i seen one i would not have asked.

I tried that. Gear fit crashes on start up. Tried all the versions. Any other tips?
