Gear Manager app Leaked for Gear Fit 2 and iOS / iPhone devices

A beta version of the Gear Manager app which pairs the Samsung Gear Fit 2 fitness tracker with iOS / iPhone has been leaked on a Korean forum. The leaked .ipa  application can be side-loaded onto any iOS device (iPhone 5S and above) and should be able to unlock a few functionalities of the Gear Fit 2. Samsung have been in works of making their Tizen-based wearable devices compatible with iPhones and iPads for a while now. For this, the company seems to be having a closed iOS beta program going on with testers using the apps to provide bug reports before it is released to general public.
Chances are that one of the testers couldn’t keep the secretive mission to him/herself and hence treated the world with this leaked application. Although we cannot guarantee the authenticity of the application, we sure cannot stop your curiosity of trying the app getting the better of you.
Instructions to sideload app

  • Download Gear Manager from Here
  • Connect your iPhone to the computer
  • Double-click on the beta file(*.ipa) which launches iTunes
  • Sync iPhone
  • Choose App (“Gear Fit 2”) and install on iPhone
  • Go to iphone settings > general > device management and trust the Samsung certificate
  • Factory reset Gear Fit 2
  • Switch On Bluetooth
  • Pair Gear Fit 2 inside iPhone beta Gear Manager app

And that’s all you need to get started!
Do keep in mind that this is a beta application and hence there are chances for the app to not work as expected due to bugs. Samsung might have even rolled out an over the air update to make the app useless by the time you try this application. So keep your fingers crossed while you try it.
