HERE updates its HERE Maps App, adds Gear S2 compatibility

HERE has partnered with Samsung to produce a maps and navigation app for its Gear smartwatch line, particularly the Gear S released last year. With Samsung’s announcement of the Gear S2 and its Fall arrival to the world market, HERE is wasting no time preparing its HERE Maps app to work for Gear S2 buyers. “You can install HERE for Gear on your brand new Samsung Gear S2 to get drive and walk navigation,” the company says in its Gear S2 compatibility announcement.

Samsung’s Gear S2 is the first round smartwatch from the Korean manufacturer to feature not only a round shape but also a circular UX and a rotating bezel. The rotating bezel has become the crowning glory of the upcoming smartwatch, allowing users to navigate the circular UX without needing to touch the display. Currently, Samsung has announced that the North American continent will see the Gear S2 arrive on October 2nd. While Samsung’s circular smartwatch will travel worldwide, only the US and Korea will see the Gear S2 3G model – for now, that is.
