Connecting Your Gear S2 to a Mobile Device Remotely

You can remotely connect to your Gear S2 when no Bluetooth connection is available. With this connection, you can still receive notifications from your mobile device. This feature is automatically activated when you connect to your mobile device via the Bluetooth feature for the first time. You can also sync the Wi-Fi network profiles on your mobile device to your Gear S2. This lets your Gear S2 automatically connect to any Wi-Fi network your mobile device has previously connected to.
