Samsung releases Tizen SDK for wearables to attract new Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo apps

As promised, Samsung has released a new software development kit (SDK) for its Tizen-based wearables, the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. Available to download right now, it gives developers the ability to build apps for its upcoming pair of smartwatches.

The release is notable because, as Engadget notes, Samsung didn’t release a public SDK for its original Android-based Galaxy Gear. Instead, it offered access to select partners which may have ensured a high standard of software, but ultimately limited the number of apps available for the device.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

With the new Tizen SDK for wearables, Samsung is making a stronger push to attract developers. Now that Pebble has launched its appstore across both iOS and Android, and with fresh rumors of Apple and Google smartwatches circulating, this is a crucial window for Samsung right now.
