Good day Tomasz,

Samsung Gear S3 watches are based on Tizen operation system. Currently there is no progress in support for these devices. Thanks for understanding.

Owner of the gear s3 too. I really would love to have a Locus companion app. So please give it a go. I got the locus widget to display on my gear s3 with the help of the "Wearable Widgets" app, if only Locus would have a widget where the map is displayed...

Hello,

based on quick search, seems that usage of Gear devices (generally Tizen OS) is not so bad as I expected.

We are currently re-opened and finally started fully working on support for Android Wear. At start of next year, I'll try to check more precisely potential interest in Gear watches and we will see. Cannot promise for now, but suggest to vote and watch this topic: http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/support-for-galaxy-gear-s2 , where we post any news in future.

Thanks for understanding.

thank you, I love Locus and I would love it even more if there was an app/widget/etc for Tizen! if you look at the available maps-app, you will see, there is a huge gap on the market for this ;)

Hi, is there any news regarding a first alpha or beta version for Locus Maps for Samsung Gear S3. I would love to be a beta tester.

Hello Ingo,

yes, the beta version of the add-on is now ready for two or three weeks and the support is included directly in Locus Map since version 3.34.0. But we have some formal problems with Samsung validation because we wanted to link the single Gear App against both LM Free and LM Pro (also considering all Google Play, Galaxy Apps and Amazon version variants) which is a problematic use case due to some rules for Tizen companion apps.

We hope that we will get the validation this week which would open the beta for all Gear S2/S3 and Galaxy Watch users but unfortunately the add-on will work with Locus Map Free (Google Play) version only until we come up with the solution for those companion app restrictions.

Best Regards

Milan

This is great news still. Looking forward to beta test this even with the Free Local Maps version initially! Thank you for your quick response.

Dear Milan,

I would be pleased to have locus app on S3 I am waiting for that years. How far we are with Samsung validation? Would you be so kind and keep us in loop once some movement with validation occurs? Kindest regards, Andrej

Hello,

if you are not following http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/support-for-galaxy-gear-s2 topic, then I would just like to share a quick update, that Locus Map Watch add-on beta version is now available in Galaxy Apps store.

Please install Locus Map Free Watch or Locus Map Pro Watch application on your watch, depending on which type (Free/Pro) of Locus Map you are using on the watch. Both add-ons are free and practically the same, the split to Free/Pro was formally required due to some technical constraints of the Tizen platform.

You can also discuss any bugs, problems and feedback here on our forum.

Thank you for your support,

Milan Cejnar
