Careful updating to 903. It was forced on me this morning and it took me awhile to get everything back. Luckily I was able to do a TWRP backup before the nonsense started. I'll post my experience in the Gear Manager thread but wanted to give a quick warning about doing this update.There have been mixed results with updating the Gear Manager, Some report that it wipes everything, while others say a restore is all that is needed in the gear manager. So Update at your own risk. Unfortunately Samsung does not include a Change log. So we don;t know what to look for. I believe there is a thread already started on this subject of the new gear manager. I would say check that out.
PS. I don't notice anything different.

On a development note, I really wish Samsung would release an SDK for the Gear. I've noticed 2 really cool things within apps recently that makes me excited about the possibilities once it is opened up.
First, I have Runkeeper installed on the phone and gear. On the gear it is quite minimal as it just allows starting, pausing, and stopping an exercise along with stats based on your exercise. What I found really amazing is that it shows the GPS status from the phone. To me, this means that we could have some sort of GPS mapping app that only displays the map and where you are going without the massive battery drain currently used by BT GPS tethering.
Second, when I use Google Voice Search from the phone, it activates the Gear's speaker and microphone. This is really exciting to me, because this means at some point, we should be able to have direct access to Autovoice and Tasker without having to use Autoremote to send messages. This would make home and phone automation use a breeze and, IMHO would make the Gear a must have for many more consumers.
Just my 2 cents worth.
Thanks to fOmey for creating such an awesome ROM.
