Samsung today unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Gear, an accessory for the Galaxy phones. The device connects easily with the Note 3, Note 10.1 2014 and the S4, while updates for other devices like Note 2 and S3 would come in October. 

The Galaxy Gear has a 1.63-inch AMOLED touchscreen with a resolution of 320 x 320-pixel. There’s a speaker and a pair of mics for recording, playing back video content and communicating with a caller with the help of the built-in dialer, which works with the default phone app in your connected Galaxy device. The Galaxy Gear includes a 800MHz processor and is powered by a 315 mAh battery which is said to last 25+ hours.

The gear has a BSI sensor and autofocus lens mounted on the wrist strap, with 1.9-megapixel stills and 10-second video clips at 720p, with VGA resolution and sound. The image quality might not be the best, but keep in mind the camera is meant for on the go photography. You just have to simply swipe down and an image will be captured. The gear has built in S-voice support, that can be useful to do a quick voice search and to call anyone on your contact list.


The gear has a 4 GB of inbuilt storage and can support upto 10 apps at a time. The device is available in 6 colors, pricing has not been disclosed, however the Gear will be available from 25th of September. The Samsung Galaxy Gear seems to be a true innovation, what do you think ?
