Techie Whispers: Samsung Unveils Phone Watch with Camera “Galaxy Gear” Smartwatch

I can definitely get into this.  Not to mention, they are cheaper than some smartphones.  I knew that would grab your attention read on Whisperers.

As Apple prepares to launch the “iWatch,” which was trademarked in July, Samsung  Samsung Electronics unveiled Galaxy Gear.  It is  a wristwatch that can be used for making phone calls, taking photos and other things.

The device features a 1.63-inch screen, a 1.9-megapixel camera, and battery life of about 27 hours.

The Gear goes on sale later this month at a price of $299. It will be able to connect wirelessly via bluetooth with the company’s new Galaxy Note 3 device, which was also introduced today, 9/4/2013.

No word on if it’s waterproof, but I highly doubt it is due to it’s wireleess/bluetooth capabilities.

J.K. Shin, Samsung’s co-chief executive and head of mobile business, told Reuters:

“We had smartwatch-type products before, but they were mainly for making phone calls. What’s different with the Gear is it’s got far more useful functions. Its usability has increased significantly and the design is not bulky,”

Samsung also unveiled the latest version of its Galaxy Note smartphone-tablet hybrid — often referred to as a “phablet.” The new Note boasts a slimmer profile, a bigger screen at 5.7 inches, faster processing and longer battery life.

Samsung made the announcements live at an event in Berlin and streamed it to Times Square.
