Samsung and iOS

Samsung announced along side the release of the Gear S2 way back in 2015 that they would work with Apple to make Samsung wearbles compatible with iOS. After a small beta program in 2016, it’s finally a reality for those who have been waiting. Now of course they have separate apps for whether or not its part of the S series or just Fit series. Both apps are pretty similar in design and functionality, there is more information listed below on the apps and how to pair the devices.

Pairing the wearables

To pair their iPhone with one of Samsung’s Gear wearable, Apple users need to download one of Samsung’s new iOS apps. With the Gear S3 and Gear S2, that means downloading the Gear S app, available via the iTunes app store. Meanwhile, the Gear Fit 2 with the iOS requires the Samsung Gear. Once iOS users download and launch the corresponding app, Samsung’s software will guide you through a step by step set-up.
