Samsung Gear S2 iOS support lands on Verizon

And with it comes the almost nonchalant announcement of adding support for both iOS 8.4 and later as well as, curiously, Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Naturally, this is more a fashion statement than a simple smartwatch, blending the latest in wearable technology with some of the most luxurious materials and stones in the fashion world.
