Samsung Galaxy Gear S3, Gear S2 and Gear Fit2 now support iPhone and iPad

Samsung Galaxy Gear series of smartwatches are among the most desired wearable devices in the market that challenge the Apple Watch. The 2016-released Samsung Galaxy Gear S3 includes several new features and design changes ranging from wireless charging to rotating bezel feature. One of the most annoying things when it comes to Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatches is that they work only with Samsung devices.


However, Samsung has always been trying to expand its presence into other platform. According to Samsung, the South Korea-based Company is adding support for iOS to its latest smartwatches and wearables including the Gear S3, Gear S2 and Gear Fit2, meaning that you can pair your iPhone or iPad with one of Samsung’s wearable devices using the dedicated Gear S app and the Gear Fit app from the App Store.

According to Samsung, features and functions of its smartwatches will vary by device, but all the basic functionality including the ability to receive iOS notifications, manage and install/uninstall apps and sync user health data will be available for all the smartwatches.

Last year, Samsung announced that its latest Gear S3 smartwatch would support iOS platform in August 2016, but only now that Samsung is rolling out support to Apple’s mobile operating system and iOS users will be able to use the built-in GPS of the Gear S3.

The Gear S3 is Samsung’s latest smartwatch in its Gear series. The wearable device features GPS & cellular connectivity and comes in two models including Frontier and Classic. The Classic Gear S3 includes stainless steel body and circular buttons. The device is aimed at the office, while the Frontier is specifically designed for fitness thanks to its larger, raised bezel and textured buttons.

This year, Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy S8 in an attempt to reclaim its reputation following the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco last year. The Galaxy S8 has been rumored to come with all new design and high-end specs.
