Use Your Samsung Gear 2 to Control Tasker

If we’re to switch out our traditional watches for smartwatches, they better do something that’s well worth the switch. The standards of what’s worthy or not are entirely subjective and up to our individual preferences, but I’m sure that one thing that it could do that we would all agree is ‘worth it’ would be to control the hugely popular Tasker app on your phone or tablet.

This is exactly what you can now do on your Samsung Gear 2, thanks to the tutorial written by XDA Forum Member Medox2. The procedure works with both Samsung devices that were Galaxy Gear compatible out of the box, as well as non-Samsung devices that have been modded to work with the Gear, although there are some slightly different initial steps for each of them. After explaining these initial steps and the requirements needed thereafter, the tutorial goes through all the steps of setting up the configurations required on both your device and your Galaxy Gear. Furthermore, Medox2 has provided some additional, optional tips and tricks which may be of interest once you’ve got things all set up.

If you would like to try this out, be sure to head over to the Gear 2 Tasker Guide thread for more information.
