Moving the pointer or screen

The Gear VR recognises your head movements and then translates that information as a location within your current screen environment. Some screens may not display a pointer.

 

- Moving your head around also changes the views and perspectives of the current screen.
- The pointer and screen views change depending on the detected location of your head.

Note: The pointer is centred in your line of sight and follows your head movements.
