Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit was released a few days back, but as previous devices, it was announced that it will work with Galaxy devices on the go.
If you’re thinking about purchasing the smartwatch, but holding off since you’re not ready to switch to a Samsung device, there’s a good news for you. Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit is made to work with HTC One M8, Nexus 5 and some other non-Samsung smartphones.
The video shows the Galaxy Gear Fit connected with HTC One M8 and M7. It is said to work with a number of other Android devices, if not all, as well. The connection is done by installing a few APKs separately on the device, and later use it to connect to the Gear Fit via Bluetooth.
Most of the functions work without any hiccups, but there are a few features which still don’t work on the Galaxy Gear, such as quick reply options and alarm notifications. The folks at 9to5Google also created a video to demonstrate how the method works, so you can check out the video below and see if it works on your Android device. Let us know if it works for you, along with the device you’re using.
