Why doesnt the Samsung Gear Fit support the iPhone: Hubris or stupidity?

2014-02-25 13:00:54| Extremetech

As I sat in the audience watching Samsung unveil the Galaxy S5 and three new Gear smartwatches, I had potentially life-changing epiphany: Why don't these smartwatches support other, non-Samsung smartphones? I actually quite like the look of the Gear Fit, and would be tempted to invest -- but I don't own a Galaxy phone, so the value proposition plummets; it's probably not worth the money. Why is the Fit only supported by a handful of Galaxy smartphones and no others? Why doesn't Samsung extend support to every other Android phone, the iPhone, and even Windows Phone? This oversight is either stupidity or hubris on Samsung's behalf.
