    Just updated myself and dont see any obvious changes. Maybe just a maintenance update.

    Correction is did the full reset and now have to reinstall watch styler. Plus it looks like a couple of new watch faces.

    I was asked to do the update when I opened Gear Manager but declined at the moment, waiting for a better wifi connection in my house. Now I open it up and it says I am up to date software. Hmmm.

    I'm still showing MK7. Does the new update show something different?

    Thank you. Mine is showing 1.5.1xxxxxx so definitely the old one still. Wonder why it won't let me update now.

    Open Samsung app store it will give you the option to update through notification.

    MK7 is the gear firmware on the watch itself. We are talking about the gear manager program that runs on the phone. As noted, go to Samsung Apps (not in the gear manager, the program on your phone) hit the left soft button, go to purchased, updates will appear.

    I don't really notice any additional snappiness or anything else in particular. But I am waiting for someone to report in on the missed call bug. Bad form, I know, but I'm not inclined to check myself, only to find that I'll have to wipe again to get rid of the notifications.

    Thanks all. I actually just opened Google Play Store and I saw the update notification sitting in there as well.

    i don't have bbm installed, but you should be able to get them. When you go into Notifications settings, towards the bottom it says others.. or something like that. that should give you a listing of all apps and you should be able to turn it on in there.

    bbm worked just fine, way before the update, so just follow what the poster above said, in order to enable bb and any other notifications you may want.

    Hi, is the gear can show the text of the BBM messages or just the notification that you have BBM ... And you only open the bbm through your phone ? Thanks

    The text, limited by the Gear's message size limit. If it's a short bb like yo wasup, you see it immediately. If its longer, you may still be able to read it on your Gear, once you press on the notification. If its really long, you may have to continue on your phone.

    Anytime

    There's always something new coming. I got my Gear with a heavy discount a month ago, and I have no regrets - it is nicer to have something in hand now
