    Currently there is no compatibility unless you have the Samsung Gear S2 watch. Previous gear watches are Samsung dependant.

    You can always use the Gear as a watch just as you could use the Apple watch as a watch with the Priv.

    There are plenty of "android" watches available that will work perfectly with the Priv other than the Gear.

    Looks like you have to buy a Samsung! Or get a Apple watch.. Oh wait, ANOTHER dependent OS accessory... that's why I prefer a Pebble..

    just received my gear s2 works fine with priv
    I also have gear 2 neo but connected to note 4
    only issue I have (same with other androind phones) is the persistent notification icon for the gear app on the phone

    Check the play store to see if Sammy has made the gear app available to all.

    If not, then check the XDA forums. Fairly sure that someone has created an apk that can be sideloaded by now.
