    Shortly after Samsung pushed out a new update to its Galaxy Manager app, several users of the company's Gear S2 smartwatch are complaining that the update has broken email notifications on their Tizen-powered wearable device.

    Specifically, for incoming emails, Gear S2 now says that it "can’t show the email for security reasons," asking users to try and "view it on [their] phone" instead. Previously, the watch displayed key information such as date, time, subject, as well as the first couple of lines for every new email.

    While nothing is confirmed at this point in time, it's possible that the issue is affecting select email accounts as at-least one Gear S2 user has revealed that they are experiencing this behavior only on their Exchange account, and not with their Gmail and Outlook accounts.
