More slow-motion action as Samsung Galaxy Gear gets put to the ultimate test

More slow-motion action as Samsung Galaxy Gear gets put to the ultimate test
The tech assassin, Richard Ryan, is at it again, this time aligning his sights on Samsung’s smartwatch, Galaxy Gear. True to form, Ryan puts his gadgets through the battery of standard tests by dropping Galaxy Gear in water, dirt and concrete.

The smartwatch handles those tests with aplomb. If you have ever held a Galaxy Gear watch, you may have found the wrist strap to at least feel stiff. The slow motion action shows some neat angles as the strap reacts to the impact of hitting the ground.

As always with Ryan, these gadgets must meet their end, preferably by being pierced with a high-velocity round shot by some intriguing weapon. In Gear’s case, the rifle that Ryan chose to take care of business is the HK 417, which fires the ever-effective 7.62mm round and is finding real world use right now through various military entities around the world.

It takes only one shot to give us the show of Gear meeting its demise in slo-mo. Ryan noted in another video that he is starting to mess around with camera gear that can capture video in excess of 1 million frames-per-second. It won’t be long before we can see every nitty-gritty detail of the tech-assassin at work.

Everything looks cooler in slo-mo, from explosions to running animals to football.

This "smartwatch" hype is BS. Smartwatches exist since long ago. Nothing new. But now Wall Street heed desperately new category zombie product, and push this "smartwatch" BS over the limits. I say- they have no chance. Even if Apple make one, not so many izombies will bite. The best thing is this ""smartwatch" is simple , light , only simpe digital display with almost no power cobsumption, no camera BS, and multinedia display. Just connected with the smartfone for simple tasks like: 1-Show calls or missed calls with caller ID 2-Show and alert for message with only one line preview 3-Alert if you go away from the phone , so not to foret the phone 4-Make the phone ring, when you lose it under the sofa or in the office, to find it 5-Control the phone music player from the wrist. 6-One touch ring for few selected numbers - SOS 7-Mute the phone from the wrist 8-Show alerts and short reminders. 9 One week battery life and so. I give this idea for free Just like armband. And price less than $99. Then everybody will buy one. But Wall Street is not interested of product under $300/400 . And don't care. ROTF

Don't quite understand your posting. Present gear can show all notification and full sms message, handle voice call run s-voice yes i starting to use it. Run watch apps like fitness apps. Dont't understand your hate. If you don't like smart watch its ok. But there are a lot of people willing to pay for that convenient. Pebble is the smart watch that show manufacturer there a demand as its always out of stock. I also tried to get a pebble a year ago but unsuccessful as stocks are limited. A lot of iFan comment i can understand they comment their hate is because Apple being the all mighty should be the only one to profit because of Apple's greatness. Long1 please comment base on facts.
