If you are among users who still own and use a Samsung Gear smartwatch, you may have to think twice before purchasing a new smartphone from the Korean company in 2021. According to reports from the GalaxyClub newspaper, in fact, an app notification Members warned users that the old wearables of the house will no longer be compatible with smartphones of 2021.

Samsung: a notification informs that the new smartphones of 2021 will no longer support the old wearable of the house

The quality of the existing service on the old Samsung Gear wearable devices can not be guaranteed and assured only through app updates , reads the app notification. The old Gear wearable can therefore no longer be supported by the new smartphones of 2021 .

The notification specifically lists five wearable devices that will be affected in this regard, the main one being the 2013 Galaxy Gear . Also they included Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, Gear S and Gear Fit. While other devices such as Galaxy Gear 3 Neo and Gear S2 remain supported .

However, if you own a Samsung smartphone manufactured from 2020 or earlier , the aforementioned wearable devices will continue to be supported by your device. The question concerns only those smartphones that will be marketed starting next year.

It is also interesting to note that the app notification does not suggest that the reason for the abandonment of support is related to Android 11 and its One UI 3.0 or hardware .

Samsung also notes that users who use the smartwatches mentioned here will be notified of this in the Galaxy Wearable app in the coming weeks , providing a short period of time to reconsider future purchases.

This is a move, which in our opinion appears to be purely commercial , since there is no real technical reason to end support for such devices, which are still valid today.
