Samsung’s press release already revealed that HERE is powering its recently released smartwatch, Samsung Gear S.
Now, Nokia has announced that not only Samsung Gear S but also all other Samsung Tizen devices will get HERE Maps. What is truly awesome is the fact that even Samsung Gear owners can download offline maps just like Samsung Galaxy device owners and can use the HERE Maps without any internet connection.
On the Samsung Gear S, HERE is powering an application called Navigator, which offers turn-by-turn walk navigation and public transit routing. The app provides a complete stand-alone experience, including the ability to store map data locally on the device and use it offline for navigation, directions and search.
Samsung Gear S owners can also pair the Navigator app with HERE (beta) app for the Samsung Galaxy Android devices, which Nokia has made official today. You can conveniently plan and calculate routes for walking and public transit on your phone and then send them to your smartwatch. Both the apps will be made available for download from the Samsung GALAXY Apps store when the Samsung Gear S hits stores.
