Soon you will be able to use your Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch with an iOS device

Interesting. I like this watch. Have to see what features will work with iOS.

Hopefully it won't be as half-baked as Android Wear's iOS support.

hey, the apple watch would be great if it weren't for the horrible battery life and downright ripoff band pricing.

The apple watch would be great if it weren't made by apple...

At least IOS users can now have a decent watch to use with their iPhones and have a better choice of hardware, at least on the watch front anyway.

Samsung Pay I hope won't be tied to it working only with the phone.
The benefit of the Gear S2 is it is a standalone devce.
If Samsung Pay and all the Gear features can be made to work with iOS, the Apple Watch is dead. Right now it's hanging by a thread.
This is of course if the company suing Apple over the watch doesn't kill the first by banning sales.
So Apple Watch has double trouble.

Samsung is late to this party as all the other OEM's in Android have already been selling in iOS. I'm talking from Asus to Huawei, LG, Moto, Pebble, etc... O.o
