Samsung Gear S2 software update leaves many without email notifications


One great feature of the Tizen-enabled Samsung Gear wearables is that you can read the full text of an email and decide to delete, sort or even reply right from your smartwatch. Unfortunately, Gear S2 owners won’t have that privilege for a while.

Users are reporting issues since the latest Gear Manager app update that causes email notifications to not show content and metadata “for security reasons,” thus prompting users to their phones. Some have reported this glitch happening for their Gmail and Exchange accounts while others with those services have reported no major issues with the latest update.

It is unknown if Samsung is aware of the bug and is working toward a solution. On the other hand, Samsung Pay did get extended to 3G versions of the Gear S2, so there’s that.
