Samsung's first smartwatch is expensive and lacking in some areas, but it also has plenty of potential
I'm trying real hard to like the Samsung Galaxy Gear. Having worn the Pebble smartwatch for a couple months now, I'm all for the idea of a smart device on my wrist. And the Galaxy Gear is undeniably better looking, more powerful and more feature-rich than the plastic darling of Kickstarter.
This thing even takes pictures, for Pete's sake.
Then why do I find myself already slipping it back off my wrist and reaching for the Pebble?
We've had the Samsung Galaxy Gear in hand for a few days now. A full review is forthcoming — we want to give the Gear the proper review it deserves — and there's quite a bit to get into, even with it being a pretty simple accessory to operate. For now, though, some initial thoughts on the Samsung Galaxy Gear.
