Samsung announced its first Android-powered smart watch called the Galaxy Gear today.
The Galaxy Gear syncs via Bluetooth with a new smartphone Samsung announced today called the Galaxy Note III. The smart watch has a tiny, 1.6-inch touchscreen display that shows you incoming texts, emails, and phone calls. It also has limited control functions for the Galaxy Note III.
The new device is a pretty significant step for Samsung. It’s the first major smart watch to launch in the emerging wearable technology space. It’s also significant because Samsung’s chief rival Apple is said to be working on a smart watch of its own.
We got to spend some time with the Galaxy Gear today at Samsung’s big launch event in New York. Check out how it works in the gallery below.
