Today sees a really useful update to the Galaxy Gear.

BEFORE UPGRADING - Please note that V700XXUAMK7 will break exchange email notifications. At this point in time, no one knowns if it's intentional or not.

It provides:

- Full notifications for any app which can form status bar notifications
- Preset text message replies if you don't have time to write/voice one
- Rapid access to s-voice
- Better range between the phone/watch
- Better handling of notifications
- Better connection generally between the phone/watch

Your watch will need firmware: V700XXUAMK7
Phone software to version 1.5.111304

Couple of notes: I am using a UK (Mocha Grey) Gear with a UK Samsung Note 3 and the update was OTA.

The BT connection seems more stable too!

Did you update the software on your device as well, it's useless without. Make sure you turn on notifications and inside that box turn on 'Other notifications and select the software you want notifications from!

Here are some screenies
