Everyone expected it to be fully compatible with the company's flagship smartphone the Galaxy S4. Today Samsung announced that it is released an update to the Galaxy Gear that brings in the next wave of Galaxy Devices.




According to Samsung, the Galaxy S4 and its variants along with the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.4 will now be compatible with the Galaxy Gear once Samsung pushes out an Android 4.3 to those devices. Samsung said that the 4.3 update will begin rolling out to US devices at the end of this month and will take a few days to fully populate to all devices.
