Samsung Gear smartwatches launched between 2013 and 2014 will no longer be compatible with the brand’s smartphones launched from next year.
The information was revealed through a notification from the Galaxy Wearable application, where it is said that some models will no longer be able to be used in conjunction with the new smartphones of the South Korean manufacturer, thanks to the inability to maintain the quality of the service through updates.
Which Samsung Gear smartwatches are affected
- Samsung Gear 1
- Samsung Gear 2
- Samsung Gear 2 Neo
- Samsung Gear S
- Samsung Gear Fit
Despite the incompatibility with upcoming Samsung smartphone models, you will still be able to use the devices in question paired with any terminal launched in 2020 or earlier years.
The news is particularly relevant if you are considering upgrading to, for example, a Samsung Galaxy S21. If that is the case, it may be time to update the entire ecosystem to ensure the highest possible compatibility.
Samsung Galaxy S21 should arrive in January 2021
The next smartphone of the Galaxy line should be presented as early as next month, with the brand new Snapdragon 888 processor and 8GB of RAM.
Apparently, the terminal is ready and undergoing the last tests before lifting its veil.
