The Samsung Galaxy Gear was the first smartwatch from the company. Samsung claims that it is so much more than just a watch!
Packed with the latest technology, this smartwatch lets you stay in touch with anyone around the world and enjoy media files on the move.
The Galaxy Gear has a 1.63″ face with a stylish metal finish. Boasting touch sensitive control, the Super AMOLED screen adjusts its lighting to surrounding light conditions to save on energy. Plus it has an impressive operation time of 25 hours! Along with an 800 MHz Exynos processor, the Gear operates on Android. Samsung’s newer watches use a proprietary OS called Tizen, which was developed by the company. This is one of the only watches they offer that is powered by a version of Android.
The Gear features Samsung apps, such as the Security Assistant, which sends data about your location in case of an emergency, and Smart Relay, which transfers data from your watch to your smartphone. You can even read your email, text messages and MMS, and use ChatON Voice for instant messaging. And that’s not all!
The Galaxy Gear includes a 1.9-megapixel camera for JPEG photos, which you can upload directly to your favorite social networks via Bluetooth 4.0. Plus, it films HD 720p videos, and allows you to play back videos and music.
This smart watch will follow you on all your adventures too, as it’s water resistant and dustproof. A gyroscope and pedometer will help you keep track of workouts while the world clock, alarm clock function and weather forecast service let you keep on top of your daily routine.
