Samsung expanding Galaxy Gear smartwatch compatibility to the Galaxy S4, S3, Note 2 and many others

Samsung expanding Galaxy Gear smartwatch compatibility
Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch wasn't much of use for anyone but Note 3 owners until recently, but that is all about to change, as Samsung announced compatibility with its most popular handsets.

Galaxy Gear will be now compatible to those Galaxy S4, S III, and Note II owners who got the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update that started rolling out in Germany first.

Later on this month, a whole stable of Samsung phones will also start to get the compatibility update. These include the Galaxy S4 mini, S4 Active, Mega 5.8, Mega 6.3, and S4 zoom. Of course, as usual, the update availability will roll out gradually through countries and carriers, but the wheels are in motion, so if you sport any of the phones mentioned, you will soon be able to flaunt a Galaxy Gear on your wrist, too.
