Samsung Galaxy Gear Update Rolling Out In US

Although the Galaxy Gear update was released early this month, the update has finally started reaching out in the US. The update brings your software version up to V700XXUAMK7 and it features improved notifications as well as the better battery life. You can download the update over the air, but if you haven't received a notification for it, try to update your smartwatch via Kies. Check the list below for the full changelog:

  • Improved range and connection: Samsung says the Gear can now stray a little farther from the phone before losing its connection. That's good — it felt pretty short before. The automatic connection feature has been improved as well.
  • Improved battery life. Again, that addresses one of the chief complaints about the Gear. We'll have to see how much longer it lasts.
  • S Voice search should be faster.
  • "Your Gear's performance has been improved and its features have been enhanced." Whatever that means.
