New GearVR Motion Controller

I just purchased the new controller for the GearVR that released a couple weeks back. In multiple places it claims it's a "motion tracking" controller, and there's a .position property from OVRInput, but the controller seems to only track rotational movement, not positional movement.

Has anyone gotten positional tracking working with the new GearVR remote? Or is it only rotational?

    There is a game I've just tested called Swords in Space which has directional tracking on the sword - you can move it left or right, or do figure eights with it. So it's definitely possible - might want to contact the developer of that game and see how they did it?

    It's a rotational tracked device.
