Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch set to rock and roll
Are you thinking about getting a new timepiece to adorn your wrist? If you have answered in the affirmative, then you would surely want to check out the Samsung Galaxy Gear which was just announced at IFA 2013 earlier yesterday. In fact, the smartwatch might be the new trend when it comes to portable devices – remember how the tablet exploded overnight with the introduction of the Apple iPad, creating a new niche market? Perhaps the smartwatch might be the next “tablet”, so to speak, and here we are with more details about the Samsung Galaxy Gear that is set to arrive in store shelves from September 25th onwards.
If you already own a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet, then you would definitely want to check your bank balance as to whether there is enough left behind to pick up the Samsung Galaxy Gear when it arrives (which has touted a 199 Euro price tag so far). The Samsung Galaxy Gear will let you remain connected to your existing Samsung Galaxy devices, where it notifies you of incoming messages, including calls, texts, emails and alerts, while serving up a preview of those messages in addition to creating the opportunity for users to accept or discreetly ignore those messages.
Should you need to pay more attention than just give a quick glance, all you need to do is pick up your Samsung Galaxy device, and the Smart Relay feature will instantly reveal the full content on the screen. Talk about being efficient, no? Not only that, there is an integrated speaker which enables you to conduct hands-free calls straight from the Gear itself, all the while maintaining connections to your mobile communications without having to disrupt your daily routines. I would say that this signals the beginning of self-proclaimed Dick Tracys around, where you can also use your voice to draft messages, create new calendar entries, set alarms, and check the weather – all right on the Galaxy Gear itself via S Voice.
