Samsung Announces Galaxy Gear Support for More Smartphones

Samsung announced on Monday it will bring Galaxy Gear connectivity to more smartphones in the weeks ahead. The move will expand the smartwatch’s reach beyond just the Note 3, making it available for a wider audience.

The company said it will be rolling out a Premium Suite update that will make a variety of its devices compatible with the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, including the Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III.

Samsung’s Premium Suite update will bring Android 4.3 and additional features to smartphones, but the timing and features will differ based on carrier and product, the company said.

The Galaxy S4 mini and Galaxy Mega will also receive an update for Galaxy Gear compatibility, but users will have to wait a bit longer. Samsung said it will become available on those devices in the months ahead.
