Samsung Adds iOS Compatibility to its Gear Family of Smartwatches


Today, Samsung has released apps for the Gear S2, Gear S3, and Gear Fit 2 on the iOS App Store, making them compatible with the iPhone.

Users can download the Samsung Gear S app for the Gear S2 and Gear S3 or the Samsung Gear Fit app for the Gear Fit2. Once the appropriate app is downloaded, Samsung smartwatch owners will be guided through steps to complete pairing the watch, with the user’s iPhone.

In addition to managing apps on their Samsung Gear devices, users can adjust app settings, control and view notifications, as well as use the Find my Gear feature for lost watches. The apps also allow you to sync heath and fitness data with S Health.

Samsung Gear S and Gear Fit apps are available as free downloads on the App Store. The apps require any device running iOS 9.0 or later and contain no in-app purchases.

    I might consider a Gear S2 – I think it looks better than the larger S3 devices. Bit overpriced though.
