Following the Galaxy Note 3 announcement, Samsung pulled the wraps off the Galaxy Gear Smartwatch. It looks like a very cool device, but the bad news is that it’s only compatible with the Galaxy Note 3. Eventually, the Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note II will be added, but no plans for other Android devices.
It connects via Bluetooth using the Samsung Galaxy Gear app. They didn’t specifically say, but it appears to use the new Bluetooth LE standard as part of Android 4.3, which is probably the reason why the Note 3 is the only compatible device.
It features a 1.63-inch (320 x 320) display, a 1.9MP camera, and battery that promises to last a full day. You can even answer your calls with it.
Hit the break to see it in action.
