Samsung Galaxy Gear Review

The Gear's built-in accelerometer functions as a pedometer to track your steps walked. It will sync with the S Health app on the Galaxy Note 3--the same app that debuted on the Galaxy S4--and will hopefully inspire you to be a bit more active. Samsung says it hasn't forgotten about the S Health Band fitness accessory that was introduced alongside the Galaxy S4 either. That accessory is a more simple wrist band, a la Nike FuelBand and Fitbit, that will track steps but lack the smartwatch features of the Galaxy Gear. The company could not comment on availability for the S Health Band at this time, and that accessory is more fitting for users who may not need or want all the frills that come with Gear.

The Galaxy Gear is Samsung’s first foray into the wearable computing market, and Samsung is hoping that its first will beat Apple. However, is being first enough? And more importantly, will users find value in an accessory that costs as much as the phone that it’s designed to work with on a two-year contract in […]
