The Samsung Gear S2 went on sale today in US, Korea, Singapore and Germany. We expected a new version of the Gear Manager application, which enables the smartwatch to talk to the smartphone, to become available on the Google Play Store in order for non-Samsung Android devices to be able to connect.

Some users of OnePlus devices have been unable to download the files via the Play Store. Thanks to XDA Developer idle0095, the two required files are available and downloadable below:

  1. Rubbish.. They EOL the Gear 1, then they release a non samsung compatible gear manager and dont add support for it? Seriously? Why do you care samsung? You arent supporting it anymore. What difference does it make what mobile your customers use it on?

    I was looking at a Live, but just for you locking me out of my favorite smartwatch again, i'm gonna go with the competition.

  2. I need help! I have the Gear 2 Neo and I want to use it with my Sony Ultra Z running 5.1?

  4. Hi! Could you please help me download Samsung Gear app on my Oneplus 2 mobile phone. Currently, it says not compatible with the mobile. I have a Gear Fit 2 fitness band which I want to pair with the phone.
