How did you get watch styler to work after the upgrade? I also confronted Samsung about the lack of apps for Gear 1 owners now running Tizen (14 available for me), and they said that unfortunately only a few Gear 2 apps are currently compatible for Gear 1 owners- even though internal specs of the 2 watches are nearly identical (not to mention OS is the same).

Same thing for me. And using the 3 dot method to find watchstyler comes up with nothing.

first time I installed tizen,it asked me to restore, I restored and everything worked good, ,just no apps in Samsung app store

watch styler worked and it was the last opion in clocks

it worked with all my rolex watches, analogs, I never tried digital ones before


then I found someone else had the no apps problem, I uninstalled gear manager, then installed the new version....then it told me it will restore my watch to factory settings, it did it,and then I lost everything
watchstyler everything

but now im thinking in the next few weeks there will be a watchstyler for tizen

That makes sense since I was in the process of installing a fresh ROM on my S4 at the time also and started out completely new with BT pairing to the newly flashed Tizen Gear and let it download Gear Manager from there.

Oh well, goodbye Watchstyler for now.
