Samsung had introduced the Tizen based Android Gear S2 smartwatch at the IFA 2015 and has recently revealed at the CES 2016 that the smartwatch will soon extend its support to iOS too. The move is being worked on at this moment and is we are likely to see a major update regarding this feature later this year.
The compatible with iOS will be a welcome move for Samsung Gear S2 that was earlier supposed to be supportive of Samsung devices only, but later an update made it compatible with all the Android smartphones running Android version 4.4 KitKat or higher and having a RAM capacity of 1.5 GB or more. How well it supports the iOS devices will be clear only after the service starts.
New variants in gold and platinum have also been revealed lately and buyers will have the option to select between 18 K rose gold display with an ivory belt and a platinum plated one with a black belt. It is noteworthy that Google had announced earlier that all future smartwatches including that from Huawei, Motorola and Asus will support iOS; and Samsung is only next to follow. Speculations have it that Samsung is planning to launch a native payment app that will enable users with Samsung devices to pay using their smartwatches.
