Gear Manager app to change watch face, app settings on Galaxy Gear

The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch will pair with a smartphone over NFC, according to newly-leaked screenshots. Images said to be from the Samsung Gear Manager app show that the Galaxy Gear will initially pair quickly over NFC, with further connections between phone and watch to take place over its low-power Bluetooth 4.0 radio.

The images from serial leaker @evleaks shows the app as offering a "Find my watch" feature, a choice of clock faces, and the ability to manage apps that are associated with the wrist-based device. The screenshot also seems to show the model of the Galaxy Gear as SM-V700, while a diagram appears to show that the watch unit itself can be detached from straps for simpler NFC pairing.

Samsung has effectively confirmed that the Galaxy Gear will be launched at its Galaxy Note III event on September 4th, though the exact specifics of the device remain unknown. Rumors suggest the Galaxy Gear as having a multitouch 2.5-inch, 320x320-resolution OLED display, running on a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, with recent murmurings suggesting that it will have a battery that will last for just 10 hours.
