Samsung Galaxy Gear

After months of anticipation, Samsung introduced Galaxy Gear at IFA.

The smartwatch is connected to a Galaxy user's smartphone and shows a user's updates, like email or texts, on the screen. It also has built-in sensors that can track a user's physical activity. It can make and receive calls, take pictures and run its own apps, and it has a voice control function that allows users to perform tasks by speaking to the device.
