Samsung announces full list of Galaxy devices that are compatible with its Gear and Fit wearables

Of course, we already knew that some Galaxy smartphones and tablets were compatible with Samsung’s wearables (which, by the way, do not run Android: the Gear 2 smartwatches run Tizen, while the Gear Fit runs a simpler OS called Real Time OS, or RTOS). Nevertheless, it’s good to see a complete, official list.
So, here are the 12 smartphones that are compatible with the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit:
- Samsung Galaxy S5
- Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo
- Samsung Galaxy Note 3
- Samsung Galaxy S4
- Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
- Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
- Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
- Samsung Galaxy Note II
- Samsung Galaxy S3
- Samsung Galaxy Grand 2
- Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3
- Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8
- Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
- Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2
- Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1
- Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4
- Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition)
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0

How about the original Galaxy Gear? Will it now pair up with these devices too?

As I read the obstacle was bluetooth low energy needed to pair the watch and the phone, and I read it's available on android 4.3 but Samsung sent me the update for the smartwatch but I'm still at 4.2.2 .. Yes you're right, there are tons of Samsungs running on 4.2,2 so it would be nice seeing those getting the compatibility update ..
