I find it hard to believe that the Gear2 would be released without an app for making watch faces. Watchstyler was universally touted as being THE most useful and popular app for the original Gear. Surely Sammy would capitalize on its popularity! The next smartwatch I purchase would have to allow me to continue to enjoy the plethora of watchfaces created by the talented folks @ XDA! For me it is a watch first!... and I am spoilt to the core after having so many choices of faces to ever go back to just a few primitive "cartoonish" dials! I want the new Gear2 so badly I can taste it! But until we can "port" over the watchfaces already available or come up with a viable method of creating new ones in Tizen I will continue to enjoy what I have.... which, after all, is still a kick-@ss piece of technology!.... sorry... just had to get that off my chest!.
Why would Samsung capitalize on it? Are you kidding? One of the major complaints (one) was that the Gear was released with a very limited collection of stock faces. Even now there is only a handful of "crackerjack" watchfaces. I'm not blaming anyone.... simply stating my dismay and disbelief that there seems to be no method (now) of rocking out the Gear2 with a little more sophisticated watchfaces. I work in a luxury jewelry store and certainly won't be wearing a S5 wallpaper on my wrist. I am well aware that it was created by one of Sammys "partners".
