The Samsung Gear S2 is a powerful and robust smartwatch with added functionality from a number of partners. ARTIK Cloud connectivity means Gear S2’s activity and health tracking, and apps from Nike+ Running to Evernote, can interact meaningfully with data from other devices and services.
Perform the following operations on your Android phone. In the “Samsung Gear” app, search for and install the “ARTIK Cloud Gear S2” app. “ARTIK Cloud Gear S2 Companion app” should also be automatically installed. If not, you can install it separately. Open a store app (Google Play Store or Samsung Galaxy Store), search for and install “ARTIK Cloud Gear S2 Companion app”. After the companion app is installed, run the app.
Log in with your ARTIK Cloud Account. Grant permissions. Enter a name for your Gear S2 device. After a few seconds, you should be successfully authenticated on ARTIK Cloud.
On your Gear S2 watch, run the ARTIK Cloud app. A list of your ARTIK Cloud devices (e.g., Philips Hue light) will be displayed. Now you can use your Gear S2 to control these devices!
