Recently announced, Samsung extends the compatibility of its wearables and smartwatches based on tizen. The Samsung Gear S2, Gear S3 and Gear Fit2 can be used in the future with the iPhone, albeit with limited functionality.
Already to the announcement was emphasized by the manufacturer that the range of functions is not completely at the level as with the coupling with Samsung devices, but the most important functions but should be supported. In addition, Samsung does not go to the start of the iOS support, and only describes that iOS users can now track their fitness data, as well as record routes, pulse, tempo and calorie consumption.
Since the full range of functions is only available with Samsung Galaxy smartphones, a minimized range of functions of the Tizen-Wearables is not only a problem for iOS smartphones. Also Android smartphones of other manufacturers have a reduced functionality – so the menu points E-Mail and messages are missing here.
As a minimum, Samsung calls the iPhone 5 as well as iOS version 9.0. The required Gear-S app is available in the App Store.
