Samsung's executive vice president for marketing at the company's mobile division Lee Young-hee has revealed that the Galaxy S4 will get support for the Galaxy Gear smartwatch by the end of October.

Additionally, the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III smartphone are also going to support the company's smartwatch. This will happen by the end of December, according to Lee Young-hee.

The compatibility between the products will come as part of the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update that the trio of smartphones is bound to get. The update brings the crucial Bluetooth 4.0 LE support that the Galaxy Gear requires.

The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch will start selling in South Korea in October. The unsubsidized price of the Galaxy Gear is 350.

What the hell is this thing.. 350 for an old-fashioned design smartwatch that must be charged everyday? Sony Smartwatch 2 is far more better than this.. Better design, better battery lifetime, water resistant, more sensible price, can sync with many...
