Samsung’s Gear smartwatches can now work on your iPhone


Company releases compatibility to iOS devices.

Samsung’s current line of Gear wearables may be one of the better designed devices out there, but when it was released it was only compatible with most Samsung devices.

These Tizen-powered devices though will soon be able to pair with your smartphone as Samsung has announced that it will be expanding device support to iOS users as well.

Specifically the Gear S2, Gear S3 and the GearFit2 are now compatible with the iPhone thanks to the Samsung Gear S app that has been released on the Apple App Store.

These devices are able to track distance, running pace, calories burned and heart rate and can now easily sync to an iPhone 5 or higher. While support and features may vary with each device, current devices like the iPhone 7 will get the same similar functionality present on the Galaxy S7.
