    Samsung’s efforts in 2018 have been geared towards bringing Bixby and SmartThings support to as many Samsung devices as possible. After Samsung TVs and refrigerators, now it’s the turn of Samsung wearable devices to get the same treatment, as far as SmartThings is concerned.

    SmartThings app for Gear S3 and Gear S3 Sport

    At CES 2018, Samsung has announced that it will be bringing the SmartThings app to its wearable devices. The SmartThings app allows users to connect, monitor, and control a huge array of Samsung IoT-enabled devices. When available, the app should allow users to control their entire smart home from the Samsung smartwatch on their wrist.

    Samsung hasn’t announced when exactly the app will launch other than saying it is coming in 2018. As far as the supported devices are concerned, Samsung says the app is coming to the Gear S3 and Gear Sport. Whether that means the app is coming to the Gear S3 and Gear Sport initially or only to the Gear S3 and Gear Sport remains unknown.

    Samsung has recently announced they will consolidate all their IoT apps into their SmartThings app through a huge update for the Android and iOS app in Q1 2018. Since a huge SmartThings update is coming soon, there is a possibility that the smartwatch app might also launch along with it.
