    It's still available. Make sure you open Gear Manager on your phone and then select Samsung Gear Apps. Just search for Opera.

    That's the correct app. Is your watch connected through Bluetooth? I don't see the watch icon at the top of your screen like I do on mine in the screen cap I posted above.

    Ok. See if it is on the main screen of the app as shown in my screen shot under the staff pics tab, scroll down a bit. After this, I have no more ideas.

    No. It is as easy as installing the Samsung Gear app on your phone, connecting the phone via Bluetooth and then installing apps through the Samsung Gear app on the phone.

    I have installed a few, but cannot find opera, yelp and a few others. Hmm.
    Wonder if they changed something.
    Wonder if contacting them would answer anything

    I seen on another forum, someone using S6 edge like myself cannot see it either.
    If anyone else here, has S6 edge, can you check and reply if you can see or download opera?

    Send your request to Samsung. It seems their app market can't handle S6 Edge properly which is probably not a surprise.

    Samsung.com, support tab, can chat with an agent that will walk you through.

    I have Opera Mini on my Gear S. Works great, even with only 2G. I can access Facebook, G-mail, search for job assignments, and more .....

    So I just spoke to Samsung S6 support they actually have a group of people just for this type of thing. After about an hour they told me that its not just Opera mini but about 50 other apps that will not load into the Samsung store because the S6 is running 5.0.2. They gave me a case number and said they are aware of the issues and have no expected time for a fix.

    I reconnect my Note 4 and S5 to my Gear S and it installs fine reconnect to my S6 and does not show up. I confirmed it with them on the phone using hangouts so they could see the issue


    Hope this helps everyone out ( atleast you wont feel crazy when everyone that has anything but an s6 tells you its there)
