    Can we use Gear 2 with Non Samsung phones, how?

    Gear 2 is a amazing watch which s released to work with Samsung devices. But somehow I want a way to those which one can use it with different devices that does not belong to Samsung. A universal type of smart watch that can work with all kind of devices through which we can control and manage many notification.

    But I am not able to find out info about that. Many says that Gear 2 only work with Samsung. It is not possible to use with others.

    It is right that this watch will only work with Samsung devices. That is because devices are not compatible and they don't own the driver to access other Samsung devices. I had seen a few threads on XDA that says there is a third party which can manage the watch connectivity. But that also does not work 100%. It can be faulty or it can break the connection in between. It is wise to use the watch on Samsung phones only.

    There are third party apps that might work. Like ATN or Gear Manager app. For using this I think you have to simply root your phone. I am not really sure but it might work on unrooted phone also.

    If you are having Gear device then you can try testing that through ATN and Gear 2. Other than this there is no other option. So there is very less chances of using this watch on other phone.

    Samsung is going to extend the compatibility. This was in the news. The new version of Samsung Gear 2 which might come loaded with Tizen will have extended compatibility support. That means it is going to work with other devices also. But officially no devices are released which can confirm this new. I hope in future we can get a compatible watch which will work through a app on all kind of devices.
