Samsung postpones launching new Wearables as it works on a “more perfect product”

Samsung is working on a “perfect product” as we speak, according to executive VP Young-hee Lee. It appears that the South-Korean conglomerate is taking a break from releasing more smartwatches and focusing towards creating a perfect device for the future. Since 2013, Samsung has released lots of wearable devices, including Galaxy Gear, Gear 2, Gear Live and Gear Fit.

According to the VP, Samsung has already released enough products – more than anyone else – therefore they are ready to take a pause and create a more perfect product in the meantime. It appears that the said product is already being worked on and the public may not have to wait THAT long to see it. Of course, next time a device is released from Samsung; it will have to take on the eternal rival Apple product, the Apple Watch. But as long as a Samsung wearable is going to run on Android Wear, we are sure it will be a success.

A possible problem would be the usage of Samsung’s proprietary Tizen OS, which may be the obvious choice for the future as the company is trying to become independent from all exterior associates.

News Updates/Software

Samsung Gear Live gets update to 4.4W.2! See what the changes are here!

Samsung Gear Live it’s getting its newest software update in the form of version no. 4.4W.2. The Samsung device is getting its update after Moto 360 and LG G Watch, getting a bit late to the party, it seems. The update brings about some OS tweaks, one of the most important being the option to hide notification cards situated on the watch face.

The update will hop around on all Wear devices in the next couple of days and after you install it on your Samsung smartwatch you will be able to play music locally from the device by pairing some Bluetooth headphones to it. Gear Live doesn’t have GPS so the update will not help you in that manner.

This update cannot be forced on the device and, even if some say there are magic rituals you can try to help your OTA update come sooner, none of them have been seen working so far. You can – if you want – download the OTA package from XDA and flash it manually in order to get your update on your own terms.
