Galaxy s6 Edge+ will not connect to gear S2 watch

I have tried connecting my Edge+ to gear s2 watch, but the message i get is "check if your phone is compatible and if the Samsung galaxy app needs to be updated, then try again". How can i get it to connect?
I have checked for the latest version of gear manager by going to apps.samsung.com/gear and i see that i have the latest version installed. Also i purchased the watch from korea and the default language seems to be Korean.
