Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch

Well, it’s official: the first Android smartwatch is [almost] here. Akin to wearing a tiny pared down smartphone on your wrist – minus the bit about the SIM card and long-range wireless antennas – Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smartwatch packs a variety of interesting hardware, including a pedometer, accelerometer/gyroscope, 1.9 megapixel autofocus camera, speaker plus mic, 4GB memory, and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, all in a relatively small wrist-suited package. Pair it with your Note 2/3 or Samsung S3/4 to make calls, send SMS messages, control your music, or to run any of roughly seventy apps adapted to its size in time for its launch – just don’t fiddle around with it too much at work, lest the battery conk out before its one day rating.
