Hello,

Is it possible for you to add support for the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch?

I downloaded GadgetBridge from F-Droid. Running Android 11.

It would need someone with the watch. With completely new group of devices like this Samsung watches this also probably means encrypted/obfuscated way of communication that someone would need to break through. Maybe your issue attracts someone. Having some of the info which we asked you to fill in the template and you actually erased, could be helpful to them...

Thanks. Here's more info:

Device information

Device Name: Samsung Gear S2
It runs on Tizen OS, which is also used by the Gear 2 and Gear S3

Model: SM-R720

Tizen Version: 2.3.2.2
Software Version: R720XXU2EQH1

I have the device and am able to provide logs and testing. I know how to run adb commands so I should be capable of providing logs, etc. But I'm an amateur so I might get stuck at times.

I don't know if this is helpful but I also noticed that the watch has instructions for obtaining the Open Source License.

I will review the "Setup for a new device" and "New Device Tutorial" sections and see if I'm able to do some of the ground work there.

Unfortunatelly, this is only complaince, they are using some open source somewhere...
