Have a virtual tour guide on your Gear S2 / S3 with the Guides by Lonely Planet app

Jan 25, 2017

If you're strapping a Gear S2 or a Gear S3 on your wrist for your next vacation or just visiting a new place, then make sure that you install the Guides by Lonely Planet app which has just made way into tthe Tizen smartwatches (previously available only on iOS and Android). The app behaves like a virtual guide and provides information about the places you visit and also recommends the best places to visit nearby to your location.

While the smartphone version of the app has features such as currency calculator, ‘near me’ functionality, essential tips and must-see sights, the smartwatch version is more lightweight on the feature set and provides only with the essential information that you'd appreciate with just a glance at your wrist. The Guides by lonely planet app description for the S2 and S3 is as follows:-

  • View saved points-of-interest
  • See nearby and top choice places
  • Route directions to get nearby points-of-interest
  • Receive notifications when your nearby must
  • See spots in a destination.



The app also provides with timings of places that have opening and closing hours as well as ticket details if applicable so you can prepare and be ready in advance. It also notifies about the bookmarks a user saves during the travel when you're near by the particular place.

The version 1.0.0 of the app is currently available for download on the Gear S2 and S3 smartwatches and weighs in about 4.50MB.
