- Download and install the Tizen IDE on your PC from Samsung website.
- Enable debugging mode on Gear S2 through Settings screen > Gear Info > Debugging.
- Restart the Gear S2.
- Connect the Gear S2 to your laptop as follows
- Connect your Gear S2 to a phone so it can retrieve the Wi-Fi credentials from the phone
- Turn the Bluetooth off on Gear S2 – the watch will now try to connect to a Wi-Fi network (might not be needed)
- Connect your PC to the same network
- If there is any problem with connecting, please see the official Samsung docs on this or contact email@example.com.
- Find the DUID of your device in the Connection Explorer (you might have to right click your device > properties)
- It is not possible to sign the .tpk file (the native package) yourself without the source code, so please send us your DUID (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll build you a special version for your device.
- Download the Gear S2 phone addon (.apk file) and install it on your phone.
NOTE: In case of freezing at “Starting tracking” screen, try to reinstall the app on your watch.
