    Cool Watch, pity it doesn't work - no Bluetooth 4.0 support

    I recently brought a Casio GShock GT 6900, which uses Bluetooth 4 to connect to android smartphones. I brought it because one website said that it supported the S2. It doesn't...Actually looks like nothing supports it yet.

    After several hours trying to get it to pair, I realised that my S2 only supports Bluetooth 3.0. Maybe its because its on Gingerbread, but I've also tried with a Nexus on Ice Cream Sandwich - which also uses the same broadcom BCM4330 module - and that also only supports Bluetooth 3 as well. (PS: BCM4330 supports Bluetooth 4.0...)


    Is there anyway I can get Bluetooth 4.0 on my s2? Bit of a first world problem I know, but it would solve some real world problems for me.

    Appreciate the help.

    No, there is no way to get BT4.0 on your SGS2 as your SGS2 only supports BT3.0

    Doesn't help you, but if you're on the lookout for a watch to match your S2, have a look here
