Two new apps, News Republic and Appy Geek, have now been released for Samsung Gear 2 and the Gear Fit activity tracker.

Through News Republic users can get national news, Appy Geek is specifically for technology related news. Both applications are available for download through the Samsung App store for Gear 2 smartwatches. Gear Fit users can download these applications through the Google Play Store.

The apps give users the ability to personalize news from more than one million unique topics, read full articles on the Gear 2 smartwatches, receive breaking and custom news alerts as well as open up articles on their Samsung smartphone or tablet from the wearable device. Since Gear Fit’s display isn’t big enough, users will only be able to swipe headlines on it, but it will allow them to open articles on a connected Samsung mobile device.

The apps pool in latest news from more than 900 publications around the world and offers more than 10,000 fully licensed complete articles that are published daily in six languages. Both applications are available for free.
