I hope that helps you.

Alarms, syncing with SHealth and weather do not work.

wow this looks perfect, thanks! In the meantime I went out also bought a Gear S, any chance you also written a guide for getting that when working with a nexus 5 with lollipop? Or know of any such guide?

Love this thread! I got my gear fit working with my nexus 5. I am having some work done on my GS4 and should have it back in hand soon. Does anyone know how updating the GF will affect how it works with my GS4?

Hi,

all posts are pretty old, so I just want to ask, if there is some limitations when using gear fit with nexus 5? Will I be able to use all of it features?

It isn't 100% working and some of the features are broken or limited. Notifications and music control work. Some App Connect apps work. Some apps need to be modified to work. Some people complain of frequent bluetooth disconnects. The SHealth app will install, but refuses to sync with the Gear Fit. Endomondo can be used instead. Head over to the Gear Fit forums and, more specifically This Thread for more information. That particular thread has instructions and files to get it working with Lollipop. I am currently using it with 5.1.

Hi, I would like to know if the notifications still work with Lollipop 5.1.1
I've just followed the tutorial to flash the firmware and installed the no crack version of Gear Fit manager, and everything works just fine, exept the notifications app... which is the most important for me...

So could you please tell me if your gear fit works 100% well, if yes, could you tell me the firmware version of the gear fit you're using, and what version of gear fit manager you installed
thank you
By the way, you said that notifications works just fine, do you use Hangout? or Messenger? what is your sms app?
(sorry for my bad english... i'm french )

EDIT: I've found it by myself
I just needed to go to the phone parameters / sound and notifications / Access to notification / Check the Gear Fit
It was really that simple.

I'm glad that you got it working

I use hangouts and usually Textra for SMS. Also, remember the Gear Manager lets you enable notifications on a per-app basis, so if something isn't working try enabling it there.
