3 September 2014
Summary: The Smartwatch battle is raging and Samsung is certainly among the leaders, the Gear S is a quite improved model in the Gear lineup, both design-wise and hardware-wise. The manufacturer has surely learned from the numerous wearables it has launched in less than a year, improving key features such as...

Samsung Galaxy Gear wrist watch review: The 'it' product in geek fashion
9 April 2014
Excerpt: You've probably seen the TV ads for Samsung's new Galaxy Gear line, where people can, among other things, talk into their Galaxy Gear wrist watch. I tested a Samsung Galaxy Gear watch along with an AT&T Wireless Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and it does make one feel like being in a James Bond movie, a...
Excerpt: Top smartphone makers have a bit of a problem. They got so good at selling smartphones that there aren’t enough people left to buy them at the amazing pace the market has enjoyed over the past few years. The smartphone market is still monstrous, of course, but growth is key and growth is slowing.
The camera is quite awesome if you think about it. It’s a 1.9-megapizel BSI auto-focus camera that can do both picture and 720p quality video (up to 15secs). The photo size is either 1,392 x 1,392 (1:1) to 1,280 x 960 (4:3).
Pros: • Receive notifications without checking phone, • The camera being very accessible, • Incredibly comfortable on my wrist
Cons: • Lack of apps due to Samsung keeping close tabs on who they bring aboard, • Battery life only lasting about a day and a half, • A little pricey for what you get now, but once Samsung unlocks their store to open development, the watch is worth every penny
Samsung Galaxy Gear Review: Good Battery and Design, Too Bad for the Price (Video)
11 December 2013
Conclusion: We give the Samsung Galaxy Gear a 9.5 out of 10 for design, an 8 for hardware and a 7 for OS and UI. The final grade is 8.16 out of 10, but considering the price we drop that to a 7 out of 10.
Pros: good battery, nice industrial design, good S Voice, decent notifications, surprisingly good camera, bright screen, good view angles
Cons: price is very high for such a device, black and white main UI, depends on a handset, not many apps available, captures just 15 seconds of video
Summary: Smartwatches are the latest gadgets that manufacturers are pushing out these days and they are great companions to complement smartphones. As always, not one to be left behind, Samsung too have their very own smartwatch that was launched alongside the GALAXY Note 3, the GALAXY Gear.
Samsung Galaxy Gear Watch Review: Is it a Google Glass Alternative?
2 December 2013
Summary: Galaxy Gear is great, it just depends on your expectations. It’s infinitely better than Pebble, I’m Watch , and the iPod Nano Watch . Other than a short battery life, the only real criticism should be the compatibility. As an iPhone user, I’m begging Apple to release something similar.
Pros: Great build, attractive looking, color options, beautiful screen, good touch interaction, customizable watch faces, subtle notifications, can make/answer calls and texts, integrates very well with phone, unlimited possibilities through updates, comfortable, third party apps, built-in camera, dece...
Cons: Only compatible with some Samsung Galaxy phones. Battery life is 1-2 days. Charging requires charging case and no headphone port
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch has many different coloured straps and watchfaces. The race for the world's best smartwatch is currently on and while the market is still fairly new, the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch is probably the most feature filled of the bunch.
