Lately, Samsung revealed their Galaxy Gear smart watch, a couple before the official opening of the IFA Berlin trade show. After an early reveal of the Gear on the wrists of Icona Pop singers in New York, Samsung Chief executive officer J.K. Shin announced the main thing in the Tempodrom event venue, in front of exactly what we're informed is a crowd of 2, 500 people.
The device's specs are quite less exciting compared to what was rumored : a 1.63-inch, 320 x 320 pixel Super AMOLED screen, a 1.9-megapixel camera (put on the wristband), an 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage space.
If perhaps you're questioning what exactly that camera could be used for, here’s: Memographer. It's a feature that allows users pictures and videos on the move and shares them on social networks. Definitely, that doesn't appear as well revolutionary, however the reality that you are able to do it from your own wrist without taking the phone from your pocket it makes a bit more useful.
Gear provides support for voice operation, allowing the user hands-free calls right away from the watch. Additionally you can music played on a Samsung Galaxy device, and it has a built-in pedometer that can be used to monitor physical activity.
Samsung describes Galaxy Gear the "perfect partner for the Galaxy Note 3." The Gear will ship with the Note 3 and is fully compatible with it. Samsung doesn't go into details on compatibility with other devices, but claims the Gear will be compatible with the Galaxy range.
