Can you use the Gear with your smartphone?

 

As we already know, the Note 3, Note 2 and S4 were definitely going to be compatible with the Gear sooner or later. What's interesting, however, is that Samsung has expanded this list to include a lot of other devices as well, including all of the S4 variants and the Mega series. Sadly enough, no other smartphone will be getting Gear compatibility, at least from what we know so far. Samsung might reveal more information, such as definitive dates for the over-the-air updates for these devices soon.
