    I'm no expert but I think you should get the watch asap and hold on for the update it'll be worth it

    I use the watch daily and it works very well.

    But, I'm running Android 4.3 on my S4 LTE International Unlocked unit, and this update came with specific features to support the Gear.

    The 4.3 has been rolling out long ago, mind me asking what country are you from or what carrier do you use ?

    I'm in Malaysia, and my update came over the air. One day I just got notification and downloaded it. We normally get them quite quickly, as all the units in this part of Asia are not using any carrier firmware. I have been using it at least for a month, if not more, and I didn't notice any difference whatsoever. Sample apply to my Note 2 (updated week ago to 4.3).
