Is the Oculus remote the same as the Gear VR remote?

Level 2
I got the Rift/Touch bundle, which doesn't include the Xbox controller, or the remote.
But some apps don't work with touch, and require the remote.
Can I use my old Gear VR controller instead?
I searched online for a source to buy the remote, but the only one I find (including on Amazon... or the Oculus site) is the one for the Gear VR.


Level 15
No, they are not the same or compatible. You can buy a remote here:
