Samsung has been constantly striving to maintain supremacy over its arch-rival Apple by churning our high end Smartphones, Phablets, Tablets, Smatchwatches and other devices. Its Smartwatch Galaxy Gear has been receiving some mixed reviews from the audience and experts.
Enlisted below are some chief features of Samsung Galaxy Gear:
Smart and stylish: The highly awaited Galaxy Gear is not only smart but also stylish and convenient. It has quite an attractive design that makes it wearable with all types of clothes, formal as well as informal.
Convenience: The Samsung Galaxy Gear is an Android powered watch that comes with a 1.63 inch display and a basic camera. This smartwatch is compatible with Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with the help of Bluetooth. You can now make and receive calls, record videos, take photos, see your messages all with this watch while your phone rests in your pocket!
Not an independent gadget: The major drawback of Galaxy Gear is that it is not a self dependent device. It has to be linked wirelessly. Furthermore, it offers only 2 pairing options- Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Smartphone and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Thus, it fails to work as an all-in-one gadget.
Privacy invasions: Galaxy Gear smartwatch will also upset your privacy as there is no earphone and hence, while you are making calls people around you can hear voices from both sides. Thus, you will have to be mindful about your surroundings and ensure there are no eavesdroppers nearby.
Price: The Samsung Galaxy Gear is available in the market at a starting price of $299. It is not a good deal as most of the reviewers have expressed that this gadget has been over priced. The competitors of Galaxy Gear, such as the Pebble and Sony Smartwatch, are easily available at almost half the price.
Our Take: Samsung Galaxy Gear is not as good as it appears to be. The features are fine, but better gadgets are available in the market at a lesser price.
