Watch Out: Yelp for Gear Launches on the Samsung Gear S2

Everyone knows Yelp is your BFF while on the go and in search of great local businesses. That’s why millions of users turn to Yelp’s apps each month and why Yelp data makes so much sense packaged into wearable formats you can take with you, like Samsung’s new Gear S2 smartwatch, which just launched with the Yelp for Gear app.

The Gear S2’s unique rotating bezel, along with the Home and Back buttons, ensures users can quickly access notifications and applications. Search, call and get directions for nearby local businesses to eat, shop, drink, relax, and play. A quick turn of the bezel shows results in nine different categories, from restaurants to health and fitness.

Yelp content powers local experiences in many of your favorite apps, products, and sites through our API, and we’re excited to share the Yelp goodness with Samsung Gear S2 customers. Yelp for Gear will be available in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and Hong Kong. For developers interested in using Yelp’s API, check out
