Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch finally makes an appearance

After months of rumours, the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch has been announced at IFA 2013. It’s designed to work as a companion to high-spec Samsung smartphones, notifying users about calls, texts, emails and other messages.

It has an 800MHz processor, a 1.63-inch touch-screen display, a 1.9 megapixel camera and a loudspeaker for hands-free calls. The watch can also alert users when they leave their smartphone behind. In addition, a number of watch-specific apps - including eBay, Evernote, Glympse and RunKeeper - will be available.

JK Shin, CEO and President of the IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics, said “Samsung’s ongoing smart device innovation leadership reflects our commitment to listen to our consumers, who want their daily lives to be easier and more enjoyable. Samsung Galaxy Gear benefits consumers by integrating smart device technology even deeper into their everyday lives, and bridges the gap between the mobile device and fashion worlds to create truly wearable technology. Samsung Galaxy Gear frees users from the need to constantly check their smart devices while maintaining connections. It provides what we call ‘smart freedom,’ by allowing users to choose how, why, when and where they are connected.”

The Galaxy Gear is being launched in six colours from 25th September.
