i also was told by my retailer that teh gear would work for my samsung note 2 running version 4,2, however when i tried connecting it would not connect to my phone. i proceeded to call the online support and they confirmed only 4.3 will work with the gear. my question is when will the update be launched? please let me know.
when you googled this info what did you find out? im pretty sure you dont have 4.2 you have 4.1.2 just saying.. go to samsungs website or google what android OS you NEED you use that watch. i bet you get your answer in seconds..
The Gear will work on Note 2 with 4.1.2 when sideloaded. Weather, S-Voice, and Notifications will not work on 4.1.2. Without the notifications, its worthless. Just wait until the 4.3 update.
