If you follow closely the wonders related to the sector of smartwatches, and more specifically those who have Android Wear, you probably know WatchMaker. WatchMaker is one of the complete personalization applications for this type of devices. We came to know that Watchmaker is rolling out support for android watched like Samsung Gear Series. So, before we make any further claim about Watchmaker, lets know the recent updates about Samsung Gear Series.
So, What Is The Catch?
And now, users of one of Samsung’s watches, the Gear S2 and Gear S3, are in luck. Just because WatchMaker recently announced that they will support Samsung smartwatches, so users can customize the look of their watches.
For subscribers who may be wondering, the Samsung Gear Sport is evidently the newest smartwatch version from the bunch, whereas the Samsung Gear S2 was formally introduced in August of 2015. The direct picture bearing the Gear S3 moniker premiered a year after, and with the launch of this Gear Sport, Samsung appears to have combined the functionality of both the Gear S3 smartwatch and Gear Fit2 Pro fitness band into a single wearable package.
Samsung’s wearable line was expected for an upgrade. Developed by Tizen — Samsung’s own operating system — the Gear series of smartwatches will also be building fragmentation into the smartwatch section (because Apple’s watchOS and Android Spray already exist and also have significant numbers). Even players like Fitbit are moving into the area with their particular platform (powered by Pebble), though that is a conversation for another time. On the upside, Tizen works seamlessly with Android and iPhone, provided that you receive the Samsung gear app and associated add-ons.
Design And Durabilities
The new Sports series from Samsung has an exceptional case design and a slightly smaller display compared to the Gear S3 (1.2 vs 1.3″”). That’s a significant difference when it comes to wearables and this implies Samsung is adding alternatives for people with smaller wrists. It still has that amazing rotating bezel though — it rotates with a satisfying click that feels exact and well-engineered. Between the buttons, touchscreen taps/swipes and bezel, controlling the program is a cinch.
And the first result of this agreement will be the arrival of WatchMaker to the smartwatches with Samsung’s Tizen operating system, Gear S2, and S3, which will receive the application during the next two weeks.
About WatchMaker’s Support Towards Samsung Gear Series.
One of the aspects that makes WatchMaker unique is the ability to create from scratch and share our own watch faces or spheres. As well as downloading and importing is available for the rest of the users through the official WatchMaker community in Google Plus, where every day they add new customization options.
The application can be downloaded for free on Google Play, but in order to unleash the full potential of WatchMaker. Something I personally recommend – it will be necessary to buy the Premium version, which costs $3.99. Finally, the company has confirmed in this same announcement that Watch Maker will be compatible with Android Wear 2.0.
