Samsung moved 800,000 Galaxy Gears in two months, says it's 'the most sold wearable watch in the market'

The competition is heating up with Sony's SmartWatch 2, the new Pebble, Qualcomm's Toq, and the elusive Apple and Google smart watches that are yet to hit the market, so Samsung might have a good headstart here.
Galaxy Note 3 until recently shows that there is some market out there for such gizmos, be it early adopters only.An 800, 000 sales figure despite the price tag and the fact that the watch only worked with the
"It's the most sold wearable watch available in the market place...and we plan to expand its availability by expanding mobile devices that work with the Gear," Samsung mentioned in a statement. Of course, the Gear was sometimes bundled with the Note 3 in carrier promotions, so that might have added to the sales blitz. In addition, yesterday a Korean business publication came out with much lower sales estimates for both the Gear and the Galaxy Round phone with flexible display, so the number of watches actually sold to end customers, and not shipped to stores, or coupled with promotions, might be much less.

moved 800.000 probably means sold 100 000... any wayz...if people have £250 to spend on this sort of crap...why not.. it's funny though how low can plastic fanboys go when having to defend this sort of crap provided by their awesome 'sammy'...

I bet you never owned one. I think Gear is the smartest, most versatile, good-looking watch to date. Believe me guys, this is worth the money. I have to admit though that I was skeptical before because of the bad reviews. My Gear lasts me at least 60hrs.

Lol... “It's the most sold wearable watch available in the market place...” because you offered the gear for free to consumers buying galaxy note 3. And the gear also suffering some 30 percent return rate in u.s. stores of best buy.

Does it bother you that gear is selling better than your expectations. That's weak! I got a gear and it does not bother me whether they sell well or not. I also have the Sony smart watch 1 their sales suck, but so what? Its still serve as a great gadget for my samsung tab 7.7 while gear pair with my note 3. Hater just hate with a passion its only affect your personality and health.

The US also gave Apple 1 billion for free and your precious Sony thinks that the US market is so full of retards that they are ignoring the market altogether. So yeah, that doesn't say much.

Damn... what are you talking about??? “The US also gave Apple 1 billion for free” So what's the problem with that? You know even without concentrating their products in China and US, so far Sony has very good sales revenue. I know it's not good enough to beat samsung but i think it's a great achievement especialy they aren't doing some dirty moves, aggresive marketing, or benchmark cheating.

Hope you chill and don't give yourself a heart attack. Its not worth the heart aches to worry about who buy what gadget. I work hard and increase my ability to buy as many gadgets as i like and that happens to be Samsung in 2012 and 2013. In 2008 to 2011 i buy a lot of Apple products. If xiao mi come up strong i might buy it in 2014. Why i telling you is because is its worth trading your health worrying about what others buy cause they would not change their mind even if you kill yourself over it. Peace be with you, yudi.nemesis.
