I'm trying to use the Gear on another phone, please help

Galaxy Gear compatibility is even limited within Galaxy devices. For example, here is the compatibility list with the smartphones bought within the U.S..

Other Android devices might have had temporary luck connecting with Galaxy Gear, but it is not guaranteed that the loophole will work for Xperia C.

There is another method that involves installing this application and this one. To install these, you might need to go to "Apps" > "Settings" > "Applications" and enable "Unknown resources".

Reset your Gear Fit under the Settings on the watch. This will erase data but will also reset everything. During the process, from your phone, put the phone into Recovery and Wipe Cache Partition and then Wipe Dalvik Cache. If you installed Gear Manager from the Google Play Store, install again from your Samsung App Store.
