Samsung’s new Gear and Fit wearables now works with your iPhone

Posted:  January 10, 2017   By:    4 comments   


It took a while but it’s finally here. After opening up to all Android (non-Galaxy) devices, the latest Samsung smartwatches and fitness band are now compatible on Apple’s iOS.


The iOS support is applicable for the Samsung Gear S2, Gear S3 and the Gear Fit2. In terms of iPhone compatibility, Samsung says that it will work with the iPhone 5 and above running at least iOS 9.0.


To connect the Gear device with your iPhone, you’ll need to install either the Gear S (Gear S2/S3) or Gear Fit (Gear Fit2) app. Of course, the features won’t be as extensive as when connected with a Galaxy smartphone, but you should be able to receive notifications, install apps and track your health activities via the Gear app.

In case you missed it, the Gear S3 in both frontier and classic edition is officially priced at RM1,399 while the Gear Fit2 is priced at RM699.

Smart move for Samsung! I predict this will increase sales dramatically for the Samsung Watches.

      It’s the number one question from customers about the watch, from my experience…”will it work with iPhone?”
      People like the design and more traditional look of the Samsung Watches compared to Apple.

Everyone who is consider buying the Samsung Gear S3, do not bother. Samsung claims they have all the straps which you may purchase and they advertise them. But in reality, NONE of the straps are available for purchase since the first week since launch day last year.

I am a disappointed owner of the Gear S3 who is trying to purchase the Samsung brown leather strap which they keep advertising. But 5 months of constant checking of almost EVERY Samsung store in Klang Valley, none of them have stock for it. Samsung Service centre also just recently told me to go to Samsung 1U and only for me to find out that there is no stock there. Apparently it has been that way for a very long time.

So SoyaCincau, if you are reading this, please take note and do make a post of this problem so that every potential customer/reader will be aware of this.
