When it was announced in August, the Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro fitness tracker was touted as being compatible with Android phones and iPhones. It's been on sale since Sept. 15, but there's just one problem: The iOS app isn't available yet.
No app, of course, means no iPhone compatibility, much to the chagrin of Apple owners in Samsung's support forums. In a statement, Samsung said, "We look forward to iOS support for Gear Fit 2 Pro pending approval in the App Store."
Apple did not respond to our request to comment on the app's status in its store.
