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.
