Samsung Galaxy Gear is more than just a smartwatch

Samsung Galaxy Gear is more than just a smartwatch

Samsung has finally announced the long-rumored smartwatch called the Galaxy Gear. More than just a watch, it's also a companion device that works in par with other Galaxy devices. This means that users will no longer need to constantly check their phones. Samsung CEO, JK Shin calls it "smart freedom" and it has been the dream of every mobile user today.

Basically, the Samsung Galaxy Gear will notify you about incoming messages, calls, texts, and emails. But if a quick preview isn't enough, users can check their phones and read the content directly via Samsung's Smart Relay feature. The Galaxy Gear, however, isn't just a relay tool. Users can also capture photos and videos using its 1.9-megapixel camera on its side.

For the lazy, there's a Voice Memo feature that records voice notes and conversations while on the go. Speaking of voice features, the Galaxy Gear can also take hands-free calls. Samsung even claims that you can still take calls even when your hands are busy carrrying groceries or doing chores.

With all that cool features integrated into the gadget, you might be worried about your privacy in case it gets lost or stolen. Samsung has managed to answer that concern with the Auto Lock feature which basically locks your phone whenever the Gear is more than 1.5 meters away. There's also a nifty Find My Device feature that will help users track their misplaced phones by making them vibrate and beep. Heck, the Galaxy Gear even functions as a pedometer to track yoru physical activity when you're exercising.

Of course, let's not forget that the Samsung Galaxy Gear is primarily a watch, at least from the average user's perspective. It will be available together with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on the 25th of September
