Samsung Galaxy Gear Review
Lisa Gade reviews the Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch. The Gear is a companion or accessory for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 smartphones that sells for $299 (no contract required). It uses Bluetooth to share info with those phones and provide that info to you without having to whip out your smartphone. Galaxy Gear weighs 2.6 ounces and it has a 1.63″ Super AMOLED touch screen. It runs a customized version of Android and it provides time, weather, notifications and a phone dialer. You can add more apps using your phone. It has a 1.9MP camera and you can send photos from the watch to your phone. Gear only works with supported Samsung Galaxy phones, it won’t be terribly useful without a supported companion phone.
