Some very good people in the tech industry just can’t seem to grasp the fact that even though the Galaxy Gear may not be as game-changing as Google Glass or the iPad, or perhaps for the fact that it is simply a proof-of-concept, Samsung has created a a watch capable of taking pictures, routing calls from your Galaxy smartphone, and keeping track of fitness and other functions, through 90 different apps.
That in itself, is a good start. Now, I haven’t used the Galaxy Gear, but I have a pretty good feeling that it isn’t absolutely horrible — just a device that is in its first stages; as is evident by the $300 price tag.
For those of you wondering about the specs of the Galaxy Gear, it is a watch with two built-in microphones, a 320 x 320 resolution Super AMOLED display at 1.63-inches, Bluetooth connectivity, a 720p HD video and still 1.9MP camera, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a pedometer.
Compatibility is only with a few of Samsung’s Galaxy devices, like the recently-announced Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition, while software updates for the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S III, and Galaxy Note II coming in October, when the Gear releases.
