The revised version of the camera was officially unveiled simultaneously with the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus in late March and will soon be available for purchase in most key markets, so it isn't surprising that Samsung already debuted its dedicated mobile app.

Alongside the introduction of the Galaxy S8, Samsung showed off its new Gear 360 camera.

With a connected Gear 360, the app lets you use all of the cam's features.

China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs didn't immediately respond to an e-mail last Saturday seeking comment on the report. Such tariffs, though, could be overturned in a review by the World Trade Organization.

Now, Samsung has launched a new smartphone companion app for the Gear 360 (2017). An update recently appeared on the Google Play Store for S Health, changing the name to Samsung Health and adding in a brand new service. However, as of now, the app is only limited to the Galaxy S8, S8+, S7, S7 edge, Note5, S6 edge+, S6, and S6 edge devices. It is exclusively for 360 content creation, viewing and sharing.

As you can probably guess, the app can be used to capture video and photos from the camera to your phone. It's also interesting to note that most Samsung smartphones support ANT+ so you can connect a number of fitness accessories to your Samsung smartphone and Samsung Health for advanced data collection.

The Gear 360 (2017) has received mixed feedbacks after it was introduced last month. Weighing at just 130 grams, the camera can take 360-degree video with its two fish-eye lenses. The Gear 360 is also dust and water proof, certified by IP53.
