The curved AMOLED screen on Samsung's Gear Fit smartwatch is alluring, but it currently has a catch: without a vertical display mode, you occasionally have to contort your arm to get a good view. That shouldn't be an issue by the time the wristwear officially launches on April 11th, though. Business Insider, Pocket-lint and SamMobile have spotted an update that lets you rotate the Fit's interface to a more watch-like (and sometimes more comfortable) portrait view. It's just one change, but it could make a big difference if the lack of rotation was steering you toward the Gear 2 and other less exotic-looking wearables.
