The company is urging developers to 'Get Ready for the Next Gear' and encouraging them to sign up for the Samsung Gear SDK Early Access Program.
"We are collaborating with our global partners to provide a better Samsung Gear experience for users. We welcome more developers to join us on this journey. "
Signing up provides developers with access to a new Tizen SDK that will let them build "richer and differentiated apps for the next generation Gear device".
TizenExperts discovered that within the documentation, Samsung reveals its plan to use a rotating bezel for navigation.
The documentation does confirm a rotating bezel as an option on the Next Gear devices as part of the user interface for page navigation and device control. Users will now not be required to keep repeatedly swiping on the screen to get to the pages, or tapping multiple times to adjust setting values, instead they can rotate the outer bezel until they get the desired result.
You can see the functionality demonstrated in the images below. Let us know what you think in the comments. Do you prefer Apple's Digital Crown or would you prefer Samsung's rotating bezel?
