Info 2 the Gear is dual-core??

I ran CPU-Z and saw a shocking revelation.

Samsung Exynos 4212
ARM Cortex-A9
~
GPU Mali-400 MP

Did we already know this or is this new? also is it exploitable?

I put CPU-Z on for a laugh and I wasn't laughing.

Yes, the SoC is a 1.6GHz dualcore exynos4212, with my kernel you can use the full power of the cores
Devices:
• HTC One M8 • Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 • Galaxy Gear SM-V700 • Transformer Prime TF201 • Transformer TF101 • Galaxy Tab 7" P1000 • Xperia Z (yuga) (dead) • Xperia T (mint) • Surface RT • Xperia Tablet Z (pollux_windy)

Say goodbye to your battery life, if you enable both cores. Can't imagine a scenario where I would require two cores tho...

You clearly haven´t used the traingulum kernel. Battery life is awesome.

I found that enabling both cores drastically decreased my battery life and I didn't really see any real life performance difference.

You may need to tweak your kernel settings to get better battery. To me, the extra battery drain is worth it and isn't a problem since I charge every night. The watch in stock form is soooo sluggish. With the new kernel, apps scroll smoothly, open up faster ... I don't know if you use tablet talk to text from the watch, but the extra speed signifcantly helps when using the google keyboard to swype your text in.

Also, there are some build.prop tweaks that make the touch screen more responsive, so all you 'back button' down swipes will register almost 100%
