The Galaxy Gear Gets a New Operating System

By Eric Limer on at

The Galaxy Gear is getting a big update that replaces its entire operating system. The update, which started rolling out today, lets users switch their Galaxy Gear over to Tizen.

It is offering a few new features, better battery life, and a slightly new interface. It also makes the "Galaxy" part of them name a misnomer, but you can't change that with an update.
