Samsung Galaxy Gear gets first software update (V700XXUAMJ8)

The Galaxy Note 3 has received a couple of software updates since its launch, but it’s only now that it’s companion smartwatch, the Galaxy Gear, is receiving the first software update. Currently out in the United Kingdom, the update has the build number V700XXUAMJ8, and from our short time with it, we haven’t noticed anything major, so it could simply be a stability and bug fixing update like the Galaxy Note 3′s (and possibly with improvements to better support devices like the Galaxy S4 and S3, which gain Gear compatibility with the 4.3 update).

The update should be trickling down to more and more Galaxy Gears around the world in the coming days, and you can also manually update by grabbing the appropriate firmware from our firmware section. Do let us know if you’ve gotten the update, and whether you noticed anything new or different post update.

WATCH behold it as if it was the EIGHTH WONDER OF THE WORLD. Plaintiffs do not have to wonder GALAXY SIII smartphone users. Your last firmware update 4.3 is a joke idiots going programmers. For what we have offered to upgrade the firmware of the leaked phone that has the same list of changes (1902166) . Who is responsible for taking such a controversial decision. For what, forsaken 4.2.2 update. I have not seen such a bad firmware, since the smatfona Wave I-II -III, and I was on the rail all, and it seemed that BADA 2 and abandonment of these phones is the height of stupidity – it turns out that Android 4.3 for the Galaxy SIII is the leader. Whether it is a decision designed to force users to buy the latest Galaxy SIV or SV. Do you already have come to you information about the users en masse back to Android 4.1.2 or modding firmware – whether you expected. Cease to deal with foolishness, it’s time for a specific job.
