Samsung has released an update for the Gear 2 smartwatch, soon after the company switched the original Galaxy Gear's platform from Android to its own Tizen. This update takes the software version up to 188.8.131.52 and adds Blocking Mode, which essentially enables users to mute notifications. The new mode is perfect for those times when you simply do not wish to be disturbed (hint: when sat in a cinema).
The mode can also be configured to be activated whilst asleep, further expanding the support for other features offered by the product (sleep monitoring). As well as the new privacy mode, improvements for S Health and general stability were also included in the update, which is available for download through the Gear Manager app. Let us know how you get on with your updated hardware.
