Samsung Publishes Tizen-Based SDK for Gear 2
Samsung today made a software developer kit for its new Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches available to app writers. Developers will be able to use the SDK to create their own apps for the two smart wearables. The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo don't run Android, and instead run Samsung's own Tizen operating system. Tizen is based on Linux and other open standards. Samsung also highlighted a number of apps that will be available to the Gear 2 watches at launch, which include CNN, MapMyFitness, iHeartRadio, Expedia, eBay, Conde Nast, and others.
