Nokia bringing HERE services to Samsung’s Gear SmartWatches with ‘HERE for Gear’

Nokia has just teased an announcement that will apparently bring HERE services to Samsung’s Gear line of smartwatches.

Nokia is going to unveil “HERE for Gear” tomorrow in London.

The teaser image, posted via the official HERE Twitter account, clearly uses Samsung’s Gear logo, so there’s no doubt that a Nokia and Samsung partnership is going to be announced.

Interestingly, Samsung currently offers several Gear smartwatches that run Tizen, and only one that runs Android Wear. Only earlier today, Samsung unveiled the company’s latest smartwatch, the curved, Tizen-based Samsung Gear S, which will be available later this year.

Nokia HERE services include maps, navigation, public transportation info, and information about millions of points of interest around the world.

We’ll find out tomorrow how much of HERE services will be available on Samsung’s Gear smartwatches.
