CES 2016: Samsung announces compatibility enhancements for Gear S2 smartwatches

By Team Feedbaac

Users of Samsung’s Gear S2 3G smartwatch, released during late 2015, now have plenty to cheer about as far as device compatibility is concerned. Samsung has announced a major enhancement to the smartwatch at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2016) at Las Vegas.

Beginning late 2016, Gear S2 users will be able to sync their wearables with their Apple iOS devices. This is courtesy iOS compatibility which has been made official by Samsung at the CES event.

Samsung has stated that, with the introduction of iOS compatibility, users will be able to sync the Gear S2 with Apple iPhones and iPads.

It is worth noting that Samsung has traditionally offered smartwatch compatibility only with its own range of Galaxy smartphones.

Apart from announcing iOS compatibility to the Gear S2, Samsung has also unveiled (at the CES 2016) the Platinum and Rose Gold color variants of the smartwatch. These devices are said to have a higher price-tag than the current Gear S2 wearable that is currently available for $250 (AED 918 approximately).

Samsung is also expected to offer an official demonstration of iOS compatibility, within Gear S2 smartwatches, in the near future.
