Samsung Galaxy Gear Unveiled – A great companion to your Galaxy Device is finally here!
The Galaxy Gear is Samsung’s first approach to smartwatch technology. Hardware wise, device packs 1.63-inch Super AMOLED with a resolution of 320×320, 800Mhz SoC, 512MB of RAM memory, and 4GB of internal storage. Gear pairs only with Samsung devices using Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy and NFC via Galaxy Gear Manager application. Smartwatch packs two microphones and one speaker, build-in Gyroscope and Accelerometer sensors, and 1.9 Megapixel Camera built-in into strap.
Samsung is including a variety of apps with the Gear out-of-the-box, including Auto Lock that locks your phone when it’s out of range of Galaxy Gear and Find My Device. Samsung should also soon release set of tools/apis and documentation (SDK?) allowing developers to add support for Gear device in their apps, and as we saw on presentation some non Samsung applications are already there including Evernote, Ebay, Glympse, or MyFitnessPal
Galaxy Gear will be available in six colors, starting from September 25th, and the price is set to $299 USD
