The other day I woke up to my phone having a Samsung notification saying Fitness With Gear successfully updated. I've never had that app to begin with so how can it get updated?! Anyways I ignored it since the Samsung app store didn't give me an option to uninstall it and just let it be. Well just now I noticed my lookout was being weird scanning new stuff I never heard of and found it installed 4 more apps called Gear Fit Manager, Gear Fit Installer, Samsung Billing and WeatherProvider. Any clues guys?

Never seen that Ray, do you have a Gear watch? Maybe with syncing them together it automatically installed them?

No I don't have one. The description on those apps say they're for the the new watches that aren't out yet. Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit.. I got the Fitness With Gear pushed to my phone by the Samsung App store than it began installing other Samsung stuff. But that GearFitInstaller keeps updating itself every half hour for no reason. I always catch my lookout going off scanning it saying it's safe.

Yes almost everyone who has opened the Samsung app store has got pushed the gear manager and most those apps. They don't even know it. It's not in app drawer. Go to settings -application manager- all apps and you will see the apps

I didn't open the Samsung app store but I did have it set up to auto update my apps when on Wi-Fi. Didn't think they will have the nerve to push stuff that's not installed as an update. Also you can find two of them on your app drawer. Fitness With Gear and Gear Fit Manager.

The same thing is happening to my Galaxy S4. I tried uninstalling the GearFitInstaller, but it just keeps reinstalling. Now I've turned off "Auto update apps" in the Samsung Apps store. Hopefully that will get rid of this nuisance.

That's exactly what you have to do as well as the following: Go into your phone settings-applications and find the apps you want gone. First you must uninstall the updates for the app then clear cache/data... then uninstall the app. Reapeat this for any app you don't want. And then make sure you go into Samsung Apps and set it to NOT automatically install updates. Done.
