Meet the Samsung Galaxy Gear
This announcement dovetails with an earlier statement that Samsung would push out the update on a global scale.
The Premium Suite software package will give the Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy Note 2 smartphones the enhancements they need to work with the new smartwatch, a $300 accessory that previously only paired with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
An alleged leak of a grid of release dates points to carrier updates that start as soon as today (Verizon's Galaxy S4) and span all the way to early December (T-Mobile's Note 2).
Although updates begin as soon as today, it's more likely they'll arrive staggered by smartphone and carrier, in the coming weeks.
