Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch

Samsung has launched a wearable computing device which seems like a digital wristwatch Galaxy Gear. It is certain to be of much curiosity when it starts being worn in public.

The South Korean giant has listed the Galaxy Gear smartwatch at Rs.19,075. The Samsung Galaxy Gear is now available with the new price tag at the company’s online store.

The Gear’s display is a touch screen measuring 1.63 inches diagonally. Its strap has an embedded camera. The Gear supports many apps such as Facebook and lets the wearer answer incoming calls or check email without picking up the smartphone that’s paired with it.

Although Gear powered by the Android operating system, like many phones and tablets, it will work only with Samsung devices – and only with newer models.

The battery life is said to be around 27 hours under Samsung’s normal-use tests.

This stylish wearable device connects seamlessly with Samsung smartphone to make life easier on the go. With the Galaxy Gear on wrist, you can control your phone, make calls and answer them, see new messages and more.

The world’s top handset maker has hoped that the Galaxy Gear will boost the appeal of its range of Android-powered smartphones, as it battles to maintain its supremacy in the rapidly saturating high-end mobile market against arch rival Apple Inc.

Samsung Executive Vice President of Marketing Lee Young-hee told reporters in Seoul “It’s a companion device that will keep us constantly connected.” Her remarks had been embargoed until Wednesday.
