    Default Gear 2 Neo Gallery App "No Items" displayed?

    I just got the Gear 2 Neo this past weekend and when I go to the gallery app on the watch it says "no items." Am I supposed to add pictures to that gallery? Or is it supposed to automatically link the gallery on my S5 to the Gear? I have been searching and cannot find anything so any help is appreciated.

    You can add pics to the gallery by using usb. There is currently no other way to add pics to the Neo. I've heard the original Galaxy Gear allowed users to view the phone gallery remotely on the watch, so hopefully that comes as a firmware update!

    Thank you so much it was driving me crazy. That would be a great update to have. I don't know why I didn't think about trying the USB.

    Check which cable you are using. Some only are able to charge other can do data transfer. I had the same issue with my S3. Couldn't work out why it wouldn't open file transfer on my PC, turns out it was the cable!

    I just checked the manual and found this and this is how you transfer them. I just tried it and it worked. I transferred 2 pictures onto my gallery on my Gear 2 Neo.

    Transferring files
    Move audio, video, images, or other types of file from a computer to the Gear™ 2 Neo, or vice versa.
    1. Connect the Gear to the computer using the USB cable.
    2. On the computer, open the Computer folder and double-click Gear 2 Neo (XXXX) → Gear.
    3. Select a file on the computer and copy it to the desired storage location on the Gear™ 2 Neo.
    4. Disconnect the USB cable.
    Caution! Do not disconnect the Gear™ 2 Neo and the USB cable while transferring files. Doing so may damage
    the Gear 2 Neo or result in data loss.
    Do not disconnect the Gear™ 2 Neo from the computer while a media file stored in the Gear is playing
    on the computer. Stop media playback on the computer and disconnect the Gear 2 Neo and the
    computer.
    If you use a USB hub, the connection may not work properly and it may cause a file transfer
    malfunction. Samsung recommends connecting the Gear™ 2 Neo directly to the computer’s USB port.
