It is hoped the kit, which is available to download now, will encourage app developers to product content for its Gear 2 and Gear Neo smartwatches
Samsung has released a kit designed to help developers create Tizen apps for its Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches.
Tizen is an operating system Samsung jointly developed with Intel, and is available on Samsung’s wearable devices.
Samsung said it expects the Tizen ‘software development kit’ (SDK) for wearables to attract the developer community to develop apps for its smartwatches.
The new SDK will let anyone develop an app for Samsung wearables. Previously, the kit was only available to developers approved by Samsung.
