Stunning Samsung Galaxy Gear Video | Engadget Goes Hands-On With Smartwatch

25 sec read

Samsung has revealed its new smartwatch at IFA 2013. It’s called the Galaxy Gear, it’s set to cost $299, and it’s set to be launched on Sept. 25.

The question is, are you interested in such a device?

Smartwatches and wearable technology in general (think Google Glass) are seen as a big future market, but no one is quite sure what form the winners will take.

The Samsung Galaxy Gear pairs with your smartphone but can also be used independently of it. The device is even getting its own range of apps, with 70 available at launch.

I’m not convinced by smartwatches yet, and the Galaxy Gear hasn’t changed my opinion on the form factor. Still, it’ll probably sell like the proverbial hotcakes.
