No, ordinary watches can't do these things, but what Santa has on his wrist is a ...miracle, according to the big guy. Heck, even Mrs. Claus makes an appearance in the ad, well, sort of. Her call to Mr. Claus shows up on his Galaxy Gear eliciting some "oohs and aahs".
Originally launched to sync with only the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Android 4.3 updates to the Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S4 mini, Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II allow those devices to also support the miracle smartwatch.
