Default Simple question: do these work on all phones yet?

Ok, so i'm assuming this is a common question but failed at search and there doesnt seem to be much in terms of FAQ on these subforums.

I've read that the samsung watches only work with samsung phones. is this still the case? what is the point in rooting the watches? does it allow to be used on other brands? does the other phone NEED to be rooted to use it?

many thanks and really sorry if it has been answered many times before.

I've been offered one (i think its the original gear not gear 2) for a decent price but dont know if it'll work on my sony z1 unrooted.

cheers

You really don't even need to search...just read some of the threads


The watch is only fully compatible with devices running android 4.3+ and touchwiz


You can however get a fair bit of stuff working on non touchwiz roms/devices with workarounds
