    Hi,

    From my understanding, the Gear 2 device follows a Producer and Consumer design architecture, where services are provided to the Gear 2 smartwatch from the Samsung device. In this model, the only connection which the Gear 2 has currently is a Bluetooth connection to the host device. Your best bet would be to develop an integrated app that can access the internet and send the updates to the Gear 2 app through a Bluetooth connection.
