Talking Samsung Gear 2 is working fine with Z Ultra

Gear 2 just available the other day and I got it today.

My Z Ultra is 4.3(14.2.A.0.290) and lucky that I can successfully connected with it. I followed instructions from below link to get Gear Manager with Samsung Apps installed on my phone.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2723862

Below are my findings for those who are interested.
1. Phone Answering/Calling/AddressBook/Talking to the watch on my wrist is amazing.
2. Recorded Videos/Photos copied automatically to phone after recording.
3. Screen automatically turn on when you raised your hand to see clock.
4. Music can play from it's built-in Speaker.

Still needed functions.
1. No Call History.
2. Can't see the songs from Z Ultra. Have to copy songs.

Have to still find out about emails, sms and other notifications.

Cheers!

Hi,

Would love to know how you manage to use those apk.

I had to use previous gear manager ( in the g2n q&a subforum, LG thread), which works perfectly, but no s-health

With these on my z1, gear manager return a "failed to analyse package " error when trying to connect to the watch, and never connects

Hi,

I only installed Gear Manager(Item No. 17) from above link. After I installed, it asked to install a lot of other apks and I just confirmed to installed everything.

After that, only Gear Manager Icon shows on my phone and I didn't found S-Health. I also not need all those Exercise and Fitness programs.

Connection is fine and able to make calls, copying vidoes to phones,...

Cheers!
