Samsung launches iPhone app for Gear smartwatches

Samsung has released the long-awaited iOS apps for its Gear wearable accessories, including the Gear S2 and S3 smartwatches and the Gear Fit 2 fitness tracker. The two new apps let you set up and pair the devices with an iPhone. Prior to this, the Gear devices were only compatible with Android devices.
Samsung says that the Gear S app will let you download and install apps on the smartwatches, push notifications from the phone to the watch, as well as sync health and fitness data with S Health. The Gear Fit app supports notifications from the iPhone to the device and syncing of health data to S Health.
Though the new apps bring full iOS compatibility to Samsung’s wearable devices for the first time, they still don’t support the company’s full range, such as the IconX wireless earbuds.

Some iOS users unable to access the App Store or iTunes

The App Store and iTunes are not working for all users. Based on the timeline provided by Apple, the problem started at about 3:30pm EST, and has gone on for 90 minutes as we write this.

Some iOS users have reportedly been complaining about the inability to install apps and app updates. Apple today released iOS 10.2, but we can’t see how this outage would be related to the dissemination of the latest iOS build.

As soon as service is restored to all, we will let you know right away.
