Next-gen Samsung Galaxy Gear launching along with the Galaxy S5
posted by Michael H. / Nov 27, 2013, 8:21 AM
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to be released either in February or March. Unfortunately, there isn't much as far as information on what changes Samsung is planning to make with the next version. It is being reported that Samsung is working on the device, but the only info is that it is expected to be 15-20% thinner than the first Gear. That alone is a definite improvement, because the Gear is quite a chunky device.
We're hoping that the battery life gets another bump (there was a software update today that claims to extend battery life), and of course the price tag on the Gear needs to see a drop. What other changes would you like to see?

Hope it will look better. Think they rush this galaxy watch with no design principals.

No design from Samsung will ever please the haters in this forum.
I buy it for the design and enjoy it using it on the daily basis while clueless hater bubbles only hate.
Samsung just release a watch face designer for gear user to design their own watch face. Its perfect, meet my need 100%

launched alongside S5 doesn't mean 'you've to buy the smartphone or else you don't get GS5 as well'

Smartwatches don't interest me in the slightest. The idea of having to charge my watch every day puts me off the most. I already have a time-piece that needs recharging every day. Its called a smartphone. I'm really surprised that nobody has thought about integrating solar power cells into these or using E-ink to reduce power consumption altogether.

How ironic. Cellphones devastated the watch industry. And now they want to become watches.

This reminds me when Samsung released their first Android phone which was utter crap compared to the Motorola Droids at that time. It’s only a matter of time when Samsung releases a product that people will want to buy and will cost a fraction of the cost compared to the first gen model. If it really comes down to it I see Samsung bundling the watch with their phones just to get more sales.
