I was bored yesterday and wanted to see if there were any updates, to my surprise there was a update for the gear manager. I installed it last night and apart from the updating process totally bugging out and freezing my phone needing a battery pull to fix....after the restart it installed fine.

I am now getting much better battery life out of the gear...it's at 99% after 3 hours off charger and moderate use. And that's with a watch styler face! So definitely worth doing this upgrade. Also...I would highly recommend uninstalling watch styler prior to the update. Then 're download a new one from the store.

I hope that I see some differences in power management.. So far what was the main issue for me is EXACTLY the same-


1. no change in contacts => they are still listed BY THE FIRST NAME - for me useless as I have a lot of contacts (In CONTACTS - GEAR Watch displays contact names listed by first name – even if they are listed on the NOTE3 by last name - this is true bug)
2. Still no way to see "contacts" and "favorite contacts" => You can only see one OR the other - I need BOTH!

Please list here things You would like to get - maybe SAMSUNG guys are reading this forum... for me:
- predefined SMS answers for the incoming calls
- battery level on the main screen (can be done through watch styler)
- ability to display temperature, atmospheric pressure, humidity… (all of those sensors are in NOTE3... but maybe some of them on the watch as well?)
- seconds on the main screen
- calculator
- compass

when going to the Samsung store it prompts to install on device.
On device it does nothing when trying to update. Anyone else getting this same issue?

I just installed on phone, then had to re pair and restore to the gear.

If your having issues, uninstall gear manager and 're install

Well that worked and fixed alot of the problems i've been seeing (Contact sync, Call history, etc)

I think i lost my root though. It did a reset of the gear. I probably could have stopped it but before i realized what i did...it was too late.

I've found that un-installing Gear Manager and resetting the Gear is the most reliable way to do the update.

Anyway I can get an apk of this somewhere? Still waiting for them to update my Mega to 4.3 and so far haven't gotten my brick watch to work properly on the older gear manager apps.
