The Galaxy Gear smartwatch was launched earlier this year to mixed reviews. Among other complaints, reviewers were unanimous in their conclusion that the lack of support for third-party notifications was a major drawback. This upcoming update is said to solve that problem, which means one will soon get notifications for a new email, Facebook Messenger ping, or Twitter mentions among others on the smartwatch.
Samsung is also said to have improved the Smart Relay feature and the lift-and-pause feature, which opens the clock widget. Engadget further reveals that some users in Europe who have updated their smartwatches have noticed a considerable increase in battery life.
Earlier this month, Samsung had announced that Android updates on the Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy S4 Zoom devices will make them Galaxy Gear compatible.
