Samsung is fixing a big drawback of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, allowing it to display notifications from third-party apps. Starting this week, Gear wearers will be able to read Gmail, Facebook Messenger, Twitter and other notifications on their wrist, rather than having to fish out their phone. [Engadget via 9to5Google]
