Galaxy Gear Support For Galaxy S4 Coming Next Month Says Samsung Executive

/ 5 years ago


Samsung’s new “smartwatch”, the Galaxy Gear, is currently only compatible with two Samsung devices – the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 (2014 Edition). The reason only those two devices support it is because only those two devices have the “Gear Manager” app built in that syncs mobile devices to the smartwatch. A Samsung executive, speaking with The Korea Times, stated that the Galaxy Gear smartwatch will be coming to the Samsung Galaxy S4 by next month. Additionally the Samsung executive, DJ Lee – president of strategic marketing for Samsung’s mobile business, said that the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2 would both get support for the Galaxy Gear smartwatch by the end of December.

The time frame may not apply to all markets and network carriers but if you’re using an unlocked Galaxy S4, S3 or Note 2 then you can expect to have support for the Galaxy Gear but the time the year is over. Anyone with older Samsung handsets may never see support for the Galaxy Gear – Samsung’s method of encouraging you to upgrade to a newer handset if you want to get on-board the smartwatch revolution.

    I’ll wait a couple of years and see if this kind of thing takes off. At the moment I couldn’t be less interested in wearable tech. I have an idea that cellular providers will throw these things in for free with a new contract in the future.
