Nokia to bring HERE services to Samsung's Gear smartwatches
All that Nokia is saying for now is that it’s going to unveil “HERE for Gear” tomorrow in London. The teaser image posted via the official HERE Twitter account clearly uses Samsung’s Gear logo, so there’s no doubt that a Nokia - Samsung partnership is about to be announced.
HERE services include maps, navigation, public transportation info, and information about millions of points of interest around the world. We’ll find out tomorrow how much of all this will be available on Samsung’s Gear series.
Samsung currently offers several Gear smartwatches that run Tizen, and only one that runs Android Wear (though we’ll surely see more of these in the future). The company’s latest smartwatch is the curved, Tizen-based Gear S, which will be available later this year.
Update: The Samsung Gear S, which was announced yesterday, will officially feature turn-by-turn pedestrian navigation powered by HERE. Nokia's announcement from tomorrow should provide more details on this.
