Galaxy Gear

Galaxy S3, S4, Note 2, S4 Mini, S4 Active, Mega 5.8, Mega 6.3, and S4 Zoom getting Gear support

Depending on where you live, you may have already received a software update enabling support for the Galaxy Gear smartwatch for your Galaxy S4. Nevertheless, today brings an official news release from Samsung confirming as much.

The Galaxy S4, S3 and Note 2 will get Galaxy Gear compatibility along with their Android 4.3 updates — an update the S4 is already getting in some countries — while the Galaxy S4 Mini, S4 Active, Mega 5.8, Mega 6.3, and S4 Zoom will get Gear support in another software update starting at the end of the month.

Samsung notes that the Android 4.3 updates for the Galaxy S4, Note 2 and some Galaxy S3 models will also bring the KNOX enterprise security platform, SmartSwitch for transferring content from other phones, Samsung HomeSync support and the Group Play 2.5 app with video sharing capabilities.

As always, the timing of these updates will vary from country to country, so don't get too excited just yet.
