Posted by at 10:13 am on March 17, 2014

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.
