The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch from Verizon is now getting a much needed update with support for the Twitter application. The update also includes several bug fixes and minor improvements. Most of the improvements are minor, but most noticeable among them in the changelog is the improved battery life. The smartwatch will also get an improved S-Voice search app, a new NFC pairing animation and so on. You can find the complete changelog and improvements making its way to the smartwatch from the screenshot below which was taken from Verizon’s official support page.
This update will change the software version to V700XXUAMK, so make sure you’re on the lookout for an update. The same update made its way to global Galaxy Gear units last month, so it’s high time the carrier variants in the U.S. got it. The Samsung Galaxy Gear seemed like an unfinished product at the time of launch, but things are a lot better now thanks to these updates. We expect Samsung to have learnt its lessons from the failure of the Galaxy Gear and the company will most likely come up with a better and improved smartwatch later this year.
