Gear Manager app updated with Auto Switch feature

Samsung has released a new version of the Gear Manager app today and it brings a couple of improvements for the app. Users will now see cards in the app which will provide them with tips about the new features, account sign-in, data backup, notification management and more.

The updated Gear Manager app also comes with the Auto Switch function that Samsung released recently. We saw this feature in the recent Gear S3 classic and frontier update as well. Auto Switch enables the Gear S3, Gear S2 and Gear Fit2 to automatically connect to the paired smartphone.

The app will now show available watchfaces when watchfaces are deleted. An improved Gear lock function is onboard as well, it will show information on the connected wearable’s lock screen.

Samsung’s updated Gear Manager app is now available for download, you can get it from our APK page.

The new update now adds the functionality from the Gear S3 update at the beginning of the week. Would have helped if they had released both at the same time but its all working now.

The only apk on Sammobile is 3 weeks old, we have that already.

Are you sure? Check your version number … I checked mine and lo and behold it really WAS an update! And I’ve been working with Gear Manager and downloaded the most recent Sammobile apk just a few days ago and it wasn’t this version.

I don’t understand auto switch, it automatically connects to my phone already. What’s this about?
