The Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic and now, the Gear S3 Frontier and Gear S3 Classic, come with an on-screen virtual keyboard, but some want a keyboard with greater language support and some third-party customization. If you’re a Gear S2 or Gear S3 Smartwatch user looking for a different keyboard that may give you greater choice over your smartwatch experience, look no further than the TBKeyboard.
Release as version 1.1.0 and coming in at a small 221.30 KB, the TBKeyboard has support for five languages: 1) English, 2) Hebrew, 3) Russian, 4) Korean, and 5) Swedish. A finger writing feature appears similar to what can be done with the pre-installed Gear S3 keyboard. TBKeyboard provides an emoji keyboard layout that lets you communicate via emoji if words are insufficient for the moment (yes, there’s an emoji keyboard here).
Tal Buaron, the developer behind TBKeyboard (the “TB” is an an initial tribute to the developer, “T B”), says that version 1.1.1 (the next version) will have improved letter clicking to correct key issues as well as Arabic language support.
The TBKeyboard is available for the Gear S2 and Gear S3 for a price (check your Galaxy Apps store in your region for a specific price).
