The smartwatch would originally only work with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in the UK, but Samsung has increased the number of devices that can pair with the wrist-worn tech.
Through the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update, Samsung will add Galaxy Gear compatibility to the Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 today.
Samsung Galaxy Gear Features
The Samsung Galaxy Gear is the first smartwatch from the South Korean manufacturer and offers a 1.63-inch 320 x 320p resolution Super AMOLED screen for viewing various smartphone notifications.
Powered by a 800MHz processor, the Galaxy Gear uses Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to smartphones, letting you make calls and use other (rather limited) functions.
It packs a 1.9-megapixel camera, 4GB of memory, a speaker, a pair of microphones, accelerometer and gyroscope. Unfortunately it doesn’t have GPS, so it’s not a sports watch replacement.
Of course, you can simply use the Galaxy Gear as a watch as it has various faces you can choose from. There are other apps you can use, including Evernote, eBay and Runkeeper.
