Listen up iPhone owners: Samsung is letting the Gear S2, the Gear S3 and the Gear Fit2 play nice with Apple iOS devices. After a limited iOS beta program in 2016, the official apps went live back in January.
Samsung originally revealed that it was bringing iPhone compatibility to the Gear S2 when it launched the Tizen-running smartwatch back in 2015. Since then, Samsung had promised to add support and it was supposed to land in early 2016. It took a little while longer to get things up and running we're finally there.
You'll need at least an iPhone 5 running iOS 9.0 or later and it's a similar story to Android Wear on iOS where some of the features best optimised for Samsung's own phones and Android phones.
What you can expect is the ability to customise notifications, download free apps from the Samsung app store, pull in calendar appointments and access fitness and activity tracking features through Samsung S Health.
