Samsung Launches Long Awaited iOS Apps for Gear Smartwatches

When Samsung Gear wearable accessories were released, the need for some important apps was obvious. Tech geeks were expectant and patiently waiting for the release of relevant apps. As expected Samsung finally announced the release of some apps for the wearable accessories. These include Gear S3 and Gear S2 smartwatches as well as Gear Fit 2 fitness tracker. This is relief of owners iPhones of these accessories as they were only compatible with Android devices. Now they can be used with iPhones.


According to Samsung, with the Gear S app, one can download and install apps on the smartwatches. Other capabilities are; pushing notifications from the phone to watch, syncing health and fitness data with S Health. This is a great leap in developing hi tech software for the products. This is the first time we see this kind of full compatibility to Samsung's wearable devices. However, Samsung's full range of similar devices are yet to be supported. A good example is IconX wireless earbuds. Plans may be in place for this. Who knows.
