  • It's great news, no doubt. But there's a catch here. It says, it'd require iOS 9 or above. It's so sad to mention that, I'm still not there. So, first I'll have to upgrade my iOS version, right?

      • Obviously. Without that how can you use the latest support to your device? But I really find it strange that you haven't yet upgraded to even iOS 9, whereas we are well into iOS 10 now.

        • Almost all the Gear devices seem to have got the iOS support now. How interesting it is to note that on one hand, we see Apple and Samsung fighting it off in the court of law and on the other, support is extended to each other's devices and services.
