Among the companies that sell smartwatches, Samsung is one of those that strives the most when it comes to offering the best possible experience, not only in terms of quality, but in terms of durability over time.
However, everything comes to an end, and it is that the first Samsung smart watches are going to be without support shortly. Is the situation as dramatic as it may seem? Will my watch stop working? We explain it to you in detail.
Samsung mobiles from 2021 will not be compatible with these smart watches
In a world in which technology advances at a frenetic pace, hearing about dropouts often makes us think of obsolescence, but to what extent can a smartwatch continue to be supported by an operating system?
It seems that in the Samsung Galaxy of 2021 something will change, and that is that as Samsung itself has indicated through its Samsung Members application (via GalaxyClub) that the mobiles launched during 2021 will not be compatible with the following smart watches:
- Samsung Galaxy Gear.
- Samsung Gear 2.
- Samsung Gear 2 Neo.
- Samsung Gear S.
- Samsung Gear Fit.
The Samsung Gear S is the most recent of those that are abandoned, and dates from the end of 2014 | Analysis.
These models were launched between the end of 2013 and throughout 2014, so they are teams that will be around 7 years on average when the new incompatible phones come out.
If you have one of these and you are worried about running out of support on your current mobile, there should be no problem, since current mobiles will continue to offer compatibility as you can enjoy it today, so in that sense you can follow your day to day.
The only possibility in which you can be affected is if you buy a new mobile in 2021 and continue with a clock from 7 years ago, a life cycle that from our point of view is not bad either.
The entry Samsung ditches these smartwatches, but it’s not as dramatic as it appears first in The Free Android.
