Default M8 and Galaxy Gear

I was thinking about grabbing a Galaxy Gear to work alongside my M8. Does anyone know if this would be compatible? I've tired searching the threads etc and some people say all the features work, some say they don't. Don't wanna waste my cash if I can't get the notifications etc working. Thanks

Why not go for the Gear Live? It's a %100 compatible.

I'd recommend the lg g watch or just wait for the moto 360. The gear live is compatible with this phone but the lg and moto watches apparently are much more comfortable

Yeah I'd personally wait for the 360. Just my preference though.

Since it's in the play store it should be compatible with the M8 and all phones
