Samsung Gear review

 

Is this the smartwatch to put the wind up Apple?

Quality design ; Strong display

Very expensive ; Interface hard to customise

The Galaxy Gear is still too expensive and hard to track down - but at least it's getting updates.

Samsung Gear 2 Neo review

 

The best smartwatch on the market so far

Nice design ; Lower price ; Longer battery

Fitness element not robust ; Smartwatch category still not needed

The Gear 2 Neo is a strong move forward for Samsung - the smartwatch category still needs work to be truly needed, but if you've got a Samsung device, this is a great companion.

Samsung Galaxy Gear review

 

Some people think that the Galaxy Gear is a response to Apple's rumoured iWatch, which has yet to materialise. But the fact is, Samsung follows Sony in this interesting little market, and while we found the Sony watch interesting, it doesn't offer a...

Looks good, fantastic screen, camera is better than we'd anticipated, comfortable, a good watch, easy to set up, bags of potential

Expensive, lack of consistency in notifications, needs more apps and general support, camera fogged up on a number of occasions, Note 3 only for the time being, feels as though it's hit the shelves early

Ultimately, our opinion of the Galaxy Gear is that it's a fantastic piece of technology, easily the best device of its type that we've seen and one that has bags of potential. The display is brilliant, there are enough apps on the watch right now to...

Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch review

 

Is the Samsung Galaxy Gear the best smartwatch we've seen so far?

Functional and premium design ; Easy and intuitive menus ; Built-in camera

Dependency on the Note ; Lack of apps ; High price-tag

Hands-on Samsung Galaxy Gear review: Killing time with the new smartwatch - Pocket-lint

 

The age of wearable technology is well and truly upon us. First there was Google Glass, then the Sony Smartwatch, and of course the Pebble SmartWatch.

If you're considering joining the wearable tech movement, you like to go on runs, and find yourself without free hands to type, this is for you. It seems like a small thing but the convenience of not taking your phone out of your pocket shouldn't be...

Samsung Galaxy Gear

 

Samsung's new smartwatch is a sign of things to come, but not the finished article.

Intuative UI ; Reasonable camera quality ; Receive calls and texts to your wrists

Can't read email alerts ; Massively expensive ; Poor battery life

With Samsung’s phones and tablets renowned for their impressive displays, the Samsung Galaxy Gear’s screen has continued a trend, with good viewing angles, in particular, proving useful on the wearable device.

Galaxy Gear is expensive, gimmicky, bulky, heavy... and kinda cool

 

The Galaxy Gear is a smartwatch that works only with the Galaxy Note 3, S4 and S4 Mini. It's a smartwatch that costs £299 and lets you make telephone calls, send and receive texts, take photo and video, create voice memos, get in shape with the...

Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch review

 

When many people consider the concept of a smartwatch, they think of it as a tiny smartphone that you wear on your arm. That's not entirely true. While the Galaxy Gear does indeed let you conduct telephone calls and use its S Voice voice assistant to...

The Samsung Galaxy Gear is an interesting device, but it works with only three smartphones - yet won't act as a true replacement for any of them - and is expensive at £299. There are some gimmicky features, such as the Camera and Music Controller apps,...

Samsung Galaxy Gear review

 

The Galaxy Gear has beaten the mythical iWatch to the shelves, but can it justify its price tag? [UPDATE: now with video]

A decent first effort in a pretty package, but too many niggles to justify that painful price tag

Samsung Galaxy Gear review

 

Are you too busy to pull your increasingly enormous phone out of your pocket every time you get a call or text? Then you're the person Samsung had in mind when it designed the Galaxy Gear, a smart watch that acts as a second screen for its gigantic...

Attractive; Comfortable; Easy to see incoming calls.

Expensive; No email or social networks; Unreliable voice control; Limited to a few phones, only one at launch; Needs cradle to charge.

Samsung's first smart watch looks really classy and has potential, but it lacks some really basic features. Its battery life isn't good enough either, and it only works with the Galaxy Note 3 right now. Definitely not worth £300.
