Samsung Reveals The Galaxy Gear, Will Be Available Starting On September 25





After much anticipation, Samsung’s Galaxy Gear is here, and, at first glance, it’s not quite as strange as some earlier reports made it out to be. In case you don’t care about any of the following information and just want to own one (you weirdo), the Galaxy Gear will start its world availability tour on September 25 — it’ll cost $299 when it makes its October debut in the U.S. and you can only use it with the Galaxy Note 3 for now.

In a brief press address delivered before Samsung’s New York live-stream event kicked off in earnest, Samsung Telecommunications America president Gregory Lee very briefly flashed the Galaxy Gear on his wrist. That’s all it took to confirm suspicions that the images leaked over the weekend were of a very early version of the wrist-worn gadget. That said, it’s still not exactly a petite device so those with slim wrists should approach with a bit of caution.

“I believe it will become a new fashion icon around the world,” said Samsung chief JK Shin, after confirming that the device would let users make and receive calls, notify people about their SMS updates, and snap photos. Curiously enough, Shin only talked about the Galaxy Gear for a few moments (and basically used it to prove that the Galaxy Note 3 runs Android 4.3), but Samsung’s IFA team circled back around to share a little more about the wearable timepiece.

For now, here’s what we know about the Galaxy Gear: it sports a 1.63-inch AMOLED display, and (as suspected) users will be able to issue S Voice commands to their connected Samsung phones. As seen above, the Gear will come in six colors for you chromatically conscious types, and under the hood there’s an 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM. For those of you worried about having to charge this thing too frequently, Samsung says the 315 mAh battery is enough to last a day on “regular” use — whatever that means.

Most importantly, Samsung has managed to drum up some serious support from third-party developers — health-conscious apps like MyFitnessPal and RunKeeper will be available when the Gear launches, along with social services like Path and Highlight. According to Engadget, some 70 applications tailored for the Gear will be available by the time it starts hitting store shelves later this month.

Now the question: what do you think about it?

Hi,
Been speding quite few hours in the last period reading the comments about the watch done by the people on different forums.
I must admit I found funny the battle going on by the supporters of the fruit brand and the android supporters, expecially the part about "when Apple will make a watch samsung will be able to make something more usefull the a simple stylish gadget".
The truth is only one: Samsung sell its watch while Aplle doesn't: why?
Answer is simple: Apple was going to introduce a similar product and after they saw the reaction they decided to don't introduce it.
To be honest the hardware is there, what is missing is the software to make of this watch something really needed and the worst part been the actual limit of being working only with the Galaxy S4 and the last tablet introduced (Yes, it works with the galaxy s4 and the 4.2.2)
When the Gear will be completed by a nice set of decent applications and with the freedom to use it with any android product then it will be sold well.
About the price? 299$ is not too much for a watch, even a junk Rotary would cost more.
The real weakness of the watch is the battery life instead and the need for the connected charger: once this step will be solved thanks to new technologies I'm pretty sure the smartwatch will be as much used as any other gadget.

I don't know whether this is the future of mobile or just another worthless gadget like the iPad.
