We strap on Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch in an effort to find out whether the time of wearable technology has arrived.
PROS
Eye-catching; premium styling; fits comfortably on your wrist; distinguishing feature in the onboard camera; and you can answer/make calls via the Gear.
CONS
Very sparsely populated app selection within Samsung Apps; weak device support; a lack of a real killer feature; and its high RRP.
VERDICT
Samsung’s Galaxy Gear is the best looking and most feature rich smartwatch on the market, but is hampered by the sparse app selection, weak device support, a lack of a real killer feature, and its high RRP.
