Samsung Galaxy Gear Goes Tizen
The Samsung Galaxy Gear is undoubtedly one of those Samsung creations that packs plenty of potential in the market. The original Samsung Galaxy Gear ran on an optimised version of Android. While Android is all powerful and customisable, it has its limitations when it comes to wearable gadgets. It is also not a secret that Samsung has been working on their very own Operating System, Tizen that may replace Android in the future. In fact Tizen, as many may not realise has already been pushed out with the latest incarnations of the Samsung Galaxy Gear, the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Samung Galaxy Gear Fit. Now it seems that the owners of the original Samsung Galaxy Gear might get a chance to experience Tizen themselves. Samsung is currently pushing out an update that would swap out the Android in the Samsung Galaxy Gear for Tizen. Samsung says that the Tizen update should offer up a better battery life compared to Android and would have its own separate music player app. The update would also bring plenty of the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 functions to the original Samsung Galaxy Gear except for those that needs the use of additional sensors and hardware capabilities. Right now though the update can only be pushed out through a physical connection with Samsung Kies. We are yet to see an over-the-air update as of now but knowing how Samsung works it might not be too long until then.
