What’s so great about the Samsung Galaxy Gear. Well, in my opinion, not too much. In fact, for a $300 device, it’s not much better than similar low-budget competitors like the Pebble watch. If you’d like to know exactly how I feel about this new device, check out my video review above.
To summarize, the Galaxy Gear is good, but not great. It’s certainly a bold move for Samsung, but I think the idea needs to head back to the drawing board for a while. I’m sure this will be an excellent product by its second or third generation.

Overall, the Gear is definitely an interesting device, but honestly, you’re probably better off waiting until this technology advances a bit more. Let me know what you think in the comments section below.[xrr rating=3/5]
