Please read first:
I have moved on to the HTC One M8, I don't own a galaxy phone anymore, and have sold my gear. I won't be keeping this thread updated anymore, but please refer to Brendo's thread (link below) which he appears to be maintaining. Cheers. ps, i really miss the gear, but am just sick of samsung phones for the moment. can't wait for the moto 360!

Brendo's gear manager thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2573200



Hi All,

Here's some versions of the Gear manager APK I have managed to collect. Hopefully the historical versions might be useful to some, and the current version useful to people wanting to run Gear manager on a non Samsung/Touchwiz phone/ROM.

Latest version, 16th March 2014
1.7.031004 - poor watch battery life? I would stick with 1.6.132701 right now.


Historical versions
1.6.132701
1.6.131003
1.6.111801
1.5.123002
1.5.121601 - this version was a bit buggy
1.5.120903
1.2.131013


If you have other versions feel free to send me a link and I'll host.

For those running non-TouchWiz phones, you might be able to get the Samsung Apps app working by having a look HERE.

HTH.

Changelog
As usual with Samsung, we don't often get real changelogs, but occasionally people work it out or Samsung's PR team let it slip.

2.0.14031004
  • Watch manager that comes with the Galaxy S5

1.7.031004
  • Unsure, but I have gotten pretty bad watch battery life with this version. I went back to 1.6.132702 and battery mostly went back to normal.

?? initially I thought this would be for 1.6.111801, but I installed it and it doesn't feature these updates. So possibly this is a future changelog of an unreleased version
  • Improved pedometer accuracy
  • Add setting menu “Motions”
  • Change motion menu for wake up gesture
  • When connecting to device again (example: after powering on), send notification of all unread messages
  • Changed to send notification only for new message
  • Fix to add popup message for BT connection without GM in setup wizard
  • Implemented standalone alarm
  • Add additional PIN lock
  • Changed and improved notifications menu
  • Implemented more notifications
  • Gear shows the messages of the notification of quick panel displayed on the phone

1.6.132702
  • First official 1.6.x release.

1.6.131003
  • Optimised for KitKat phone ROMs

1.6.111801
  • Fixed GMail notification repeats
  • Applies new functionality when used with ML1 firmware (eg native alarm)

cool, you need to advertise that better, maybe put some search terms or something? Make it obvious that older versions are there too.. i searched a lot when i first got my gear (for Christmas), and i didn't come across your thread :(

Mods, feel free to delete this thread.

I don't think that we should delete this thread. I think that we should take all the apk's for gear manager and put them in this thread for reference and keep this thread going because it is very clean. thank you Mods and thank you Omni wolf

Updated through posted apk-see no difference-cnn still has no connection, weather and voice assist still in whatever language that is-no idea why these can't get straightened out-wish they would just open up app store already
