The Remote Device Manager provides a mechanism to deploy a project remotely from Tizen Studio to a Tizen-enabled device, such as Galaxy Watch. Tizen-enabled devices can be connected or disconnected through the Remote Device Manager if they are on the same network. Once the connection is made, a device log is shown in the Log View. You can also use the interface of the Remote Device Manager for executing SDB shell commands.

Prerequisites: Tizen Studio 2.0 or higher

Launch a project with Remote Device Manager

Step 1: Disable Bluetooth

If the watch has not been upgraded and the Tizen version is below 5.0, Bluetooth should be disabled during this process. In upgraded watches, you don’t need to disable Bluetooth.

Path: Settings > Connections > Bluetooth

Step 2: Enable debugging mode

Make sure debugging mode is enabled. You can enable debugging mode from the Settings menu, as shown below.

Path: Settings > About Watch > Debugging is turned on

Step 3: Set the Wi-Fi to Always on

This step is optional, but to avoid any unnecessary issues, it is better to set the Wi-Fi to Always on. Leaving the setting on Auto can sometimes create issues.

Path: Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi > Always on

Caution: Setting the Wi-Fi to Always on can drain the battery drastically. After debugging, it should be set back to Auto again for better battery life.

Step 4: Connect to the network

Connect the watch to the same network as your PC.

Choose either of the following ways to connect the devices to the same network:
• By creating a mobile hotspot
• By using Wi-Fi under the same router

Step 5: Restart the watch

After the previous steps have been completed, restart the device. If you do not, the connection setup shows an error.

Step 6: Establish the connection from the Remote Device Manager

  1. In Tizen Studio, go to Launch Remote Device Manager.

  3. To connect to the device, click on the Connect toggle next to the watch IP address and port information. The watch receives an RSA authentication request through a pop-up during this connection setup and it is mandatory to accept the RSA authentication to complete the process.

You are now all set to deploy your app from Tizen Studio to the wearable device.

Step 7: Permit to install user applications

As a security feature, the device or emulator you have connected to does not contain the necessary certificates for installing user applications, and you must install them before being able to run your application on it. To do so, select “Permit to install applications” from the context menu of the device in the Device Manager.

If the “The permit to install application is not required for this device” appears, this step is unnecessary.

Step 8: Launch your project

Now, deploy your project on your connected watch, as shown in the image below.

Path: Right-Click on the project > Run As > 1 Tizen Native Application

Some helpful tips for connecting your device with the Remote Device Manager

  • Check the IP address of your watch from Connections > Wi-Fi -> Wi-Fi Networks > tap on the SSID (your Wi-Fi name) > IP address.

  • If your device is already shown in the Remote Device Manager's history, delete it and try to connect again.

  • Launch the Device Manager to see the Log View.

  • Make sure the watch is not connected with any other devices, including a phone. Otherwise, the connection fails and you receive the following error message:

  • If you cannot find the watch after scanning for devices from the Remote Device Manager, make sure your device is on the same network. To check this, go to the command prompt on your PC and ping the IP address of the watch in the following manner:
    ping < Watch_IP >

    If the ping command fails to connect to the IP address of your watch, it is not on the same network, and the SDB / Remote Device Manager does not work. To fix this, you need to change the network settings of your router or PC. The issue can also be caused by firewall settings, although this is rare.

Conclusion

The main purpose of this article is to help new developers to deploy Tizen projects to a real device using the Tizen Remote Device Manager. Hopefully, this tutorial is helpful for beginners and gives them a good experience with Tizen Studio.

If you have any other problems or queries regarding launching projects with the Remote Device Manager, feel free to reach out through the Samsung Developers Forum.

      Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. held its annual Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) today in San Francisco, bringing together developers, creators and designers to explore seamless, connected experiences powered by Samsung.
       
      During the event, Samsung shared more about its commitment to creating simplified, game-changing customer experiences, including the company’s updated vision for SmartThings as it evolves from a connectivity platform to an enabler of smarter lifestyles. From deeper integration with Bixby to seamless connectivity with Matter-compatible devices, SmartThings is creating a richer, more open world that empowers all users to streamline their connections and their daily lives.
       
      “At Samsung, we continuously innovate our devices, platforms and services to be simpler and more convenient. I am proud to share the next generation of our work, like SmartThings, to further our collaboration with partners and developers,” said Jong-Hee (JH) Han, Vice Chairman, CEO and Head of Device eXperience (DX) Division at Samsung Electronics. “As technologies become more complex, we will always search for ways to make life easier, more connected, and more flexible, so our consumers can focus on what matters most.”
       
       
      Connecting Platforms and Devices With Calm Technology
      Samsung’s vision of seamless connectivity is inspired by the philosophy of Calm Technology — where devices instantly work together, so consumers can save time on setup and get right into the experience. To realize this vision, Samsung reimagined SmartThings and its connected services and partnerships, including Samsung’s Hub Everywhere, extending its capabilities to the entire smart home with audio and visual data as well as SmartThings Energy, SmartThings Pet and SmartThings Cooking. Samsung also partnered with Philips Hue to integrate Philips Hue Sync right into Galaxy devices so smart home lighting can match with music.
       
      The seamless experience will extend beyond Samsung’s ecosystem through SmartThings’ integration with Matter and Samsung’s membership in the Home Connectivity Alliance.

As Samsung’s representative voice assistant platform, Bixby has evolved to become the on-device AI solution able to control individual Galaxy devices, as well as the cross-device experience throughout the Samsung ecosystem. With the new Bixby Home Studio, developers can now build differentiated, customized experiences for the SmartThings platform. In addition, Bixby will be even more widely available to users with support for Latin American Spanish, starting in November.
       
      As the smart home is becoming more advanced, Samsung is introducing a new security paradigm, enabling Samsung devices to protect each other. Samsung Knox Matrix1 is a private blockchain based platform that turns eligible Samsung devices into a shield to protect users’ entire device ecosystem — from Galaxy devices to TVs and home appliances. Plus, users can customize personal privacy settings with the new Security and privacy dashboard, which scans for vulnerabilities, recommends security updates and gives users data management options to keep privacy and security top of mind.

      DALLAS—Parks Associates has released consumer research showing that in Q3 2021, 27% of US broadband subscribers reported that smart TV’s using the Samsung Tizen operating system were their primary device for consuming video content. 
      The data highlighted the fact that more “changes are coming for the video entertainment market in 2022," said Eric Sorensen, senior contributing analyst, Parks Associates. "The smart TV will cement its status as the default streaming platform in the households. We will see many more content partnerships and service acquisitions among providers and manufacturers. Content creators will leverage their ability to reach audiences directly, while service and content providers will adapt their business models to anticipate higher levels of churn than in previous years."
      Acquisitions and consolidations are becoming key options for streaming firms to compete in the face of limited material and the constant demand for more new content, Parks also reported.  
      It’s OTT Video Tracker found that the average churn rate for SVODs increased to 45% in 2021, a 5.5 percentage point jump from 2020. Consumers hold on to the services they use the most and jump among the others, paying for a program or season and then canceling when they are finished, Parks reported. The number of subscriptions may rise and fall over time, indicating that churn rates will continue to be elevated in 2022.
      Parks Associates also reported that streaming media providers will face increasing competition from digital and social content producers in 2022. Popular online content creators are circumventing established distribution models and building their streaming applications from the ground up. For instance, KevOnStage Studios, created by comedian and multi-viral content producer Kevin Fredericks, whose stage name is KevOnStage, is very successful with his YouTube channel.
      "Streaming apps provide new revenue opportunities, especially with the chance to retain content ownership rights," Sorensen said. "Digital content creators can monetize content and build audiences collected from social networking and video sharing platforms to their streaming applications and websites."
      The OTT Video Market Tracker, an annual service from Parks Associates, features monthly updates on trends and market activities in the OTT video space, including comprehensive tracking of existing and emerging players and quarterly subscriber estimates.
