Samsung has released the long-awaited iOS apps for its Gear wearable accessories, including the Gear S2 and S3 smartwatches and the Gear Fit 2 fitness tracker. The two new apps let you set up and pair the devices with an iPhone. Prior to this, the Gear devices were only compatible with Android devices.
Samsung says that the Gear S app will let you download and install apps on the smartwatches, push notifications from the phone to the watch, as well as sync health and fitness data with S Health. The Gear Fit app supports notifications from the iPhone to the device and syncing of health data to S Health.
Though the new apps bring full iOS compatibility to Samsung’s wearable devices for the first time, they still don’t support the company’s full range, such as the IconX wireless earbuds.
