Judging Criteria for Round 2

Samsung has announced their new wearable device – the Samsung Gear S!  

Although it is not required, additional points will be given in Round 2 to finalists who update their Gear app to support the latest Samsung Gear S screen resolution of 360x480 during the Round 2 development period and pass certification for the Gear S device.

How will this work during judging?

A set number of points will be awarded for all Gear apps that support the latest Samsung Gear S screen resolution of 360x480 and pass certification for the Gear S device. No points will be awarded under this criterion for Gear apps that do not support the latest Samsung Gear S screen resolution of 360x480 and/or do not pass certification for the Gear S device, with the exception of the following point.

What if my Gear app can’t run on the Gear S device?

Gear apps which include features not supported on the Samsung Gear S device - thus prohibiting them from supporting the latest Samsung Gear S screen resolution of 360x480 and passing certification for the Gear S device - will not be penalized, and will receive the same set number of points awarded to apps that support the latest Samsung Gear S screen resolution of 360x480 and pass certification for the Gear S device.]

Is there a new Gear SDK?

Not currently. If a new Gear SDK becomes available all finalists will be alerted, however use of a new Gear SDK will not be considered during judging.
