Samsung has added some features and improved interface sections for clarity, as the section where we add a new widget. Now this screen simply displays a + symbol, but the update also shows the text “Add widget”. Dismissing notifications will also be possible to delete them by clicking the trash icon that Samsung added. They have also tweaked the design of the emoji keyboard that appears when going to reply to a message or mail from the clock and alerts when we have unread notifications with a small orange circle. On the other hand, users who have difficulty reading text on the Samsung S2 Gear may extend the letter simply gesturing double-tap on the screen.
But that is not all, with this update Samsung adds the “Add template” so that we can create a new layout from the fields that accept customization and offers more options for time off when idle screen (to choose 15 or 30 seconds, 1 or 5 minutes). The watch will also warn us with a slight vibration when the phone is disconnected, for example if we have strayed too and is no longer in range, and opens new applications such as World Clock, a Korean GPS navigator, Starbucks and the newsreader Flipboard. Finally, the “Auto open apps” function will open the corresponding application when we stop turning the ring around the screen.
