It’s crucial to agree with the fact that the Samsung Gear S2 is the best smartwatch meant for Android devices. Well, recent reports indicate that the company is working on a new Gear Manager app, meant for iOS.

With this in mind, it seems like the awesome smartwatch will soon be available for iPhone users as well, without requiring them to jailbreak their devices.s2

However, iOS users will most likely miss out on the Samsung Pay feature, which is basically Samsung’s version of the popular Apple Pay. The difference is that to make a payment, a Samsung device needs to be connected with the Gear S2, for added security.

In case the rumours are correct, then chances are that the app should go live prior to Christmas. Based on this, you should be able to purchase a Gear S2 for yourself, or a loved one as a Christmas gift, even if you are the owner of an iPhone, or other iOS device.

We’re interested in seeing whether Apple will go ahead and do this in the future. Although chances are quite low, at this moment in time, the Gear S2 is definitely superior when compared to the Apple Watch, both in terms of hardware and features.
