Samsung Gear Live gets Android Wear 1.5

Samsung Gear Live smartwatch gets Android Wear 1.5 firmware update
Samsung Gear Live
Based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the new firmware does not bring any noticeable changes.
Codrut Nistor,

In the long run, Samsung will probably drop Android Wear for its Tizen mobile operating system. However, they have just begun to roll out a minor firmware update to the Gear Live units across Europe, North and South America, and Asia. 

Unfortunately, it looks like Android Wear 1.5 does not deliver any new features to the smartwatch. Android Wear 1.4 arrived back in February, and the new version is nothing more but a minor update that patches various issues reported ever since. One of the problems it solves is the bug that resulted in delays when pushing notifications to the wearable.

While most users of this two-year-old smart wearable are wondering about the arrival of the Android Wear 2.0 update, nothing is official yet. Once that major release hits Gear Live, the smartwatch will gain a redesigned interface and overhauled music controls, as well as many other changes.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
