      Not this one.. It will work with any Android phones with version 4.3 JB (Even JB 4.2 is not enough) or above..

      Its those Sammy’s own smart watches (now all running its own OS Tizen) that are Compatibile with Sammy phones and that too with Android version 4.2 or above, afaik… It is called Samsung GALAXY GEAR and this one is called as Samsung Gear LIVE running Google’s AndroidWear OS…

    Samsung is selling its smartwatch cheaper than LG’s (LG has bigger screen + 25% bigger battery) in USA, whereas here in India it is selling more than LG’s smartwatch..

    So Samsung thinks, we Indians are fools…
