Samsung's Gear S and Gear Fit series are undoubtedly one of the best smart wearables out there, but sadly, the incompatibility with iOS, made them unworthy for Apple device owners.

Now, the South Korean company, after realising the business potential, has released the new iOS-compatible Samsung Gear S app and Samsung Gear Fit app - Gear smartwatch (S2 & S3) and Gear Fit 2, respectively on Apple app store. Both apps work on all Apple iPhone series running iOS 9 (or above) operating system.
