Samsung releases 18 minute video on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch

The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch connects to your phone via Bluetooth 4.0 and lets you make calls (using S Voice) and take them. It also has a camera that takes photos and captures video. Using the Gear Manager app, you can decide which face setting you want on your timepiece. It's like having a few different watches in one and is a great companion for the Samsung Galaxy S4 or Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
If you've been considering either device, watching the video is going to make you want both of them even more. Make sure you can handle that before you click on the play button!

Great technology for sure but just not practical technology. Think about it, you need two devices for making a comfortable phone call now. Where is the progress? Smartphones where created to combine several devices into one. Now, you even need a second device for the most basic feature a phone should offer: making a call. There is a reason why they don't show someone holding the device to one's ear. Doing so would give every person a foolish look, especially a small handed woman like one in the advertise. Just my opinion of course.

Technology only improves. The first (insert any kind of tech here) was big and clunky. No this isnt the first smartwach, but it is fair to say that it will be grouped in the catagory of early smartwaches in the future. The smartwatch of two years from now is going to be really awesome.

Thanks for trying to teach me that technology only improves. Unfortunately you did not understand my sentence. "Progress" does not refer to technology but refers to the amount of devices needed to comfortably making phone calls. In my opinion it is a step backwards to need two devices for doing a comfortable phone call. BTW, I don't criticize smart-watches, I criticize (in my opinion) too large phablets.

You're completely over-rating the size. Small Korean women use the Galaxy note everyday there. With the upcoming 6 inch windows phone, sony xl, htc one max, rumored large iphone, lg vu, galaxy mega, so on and so forth, you are seeing the new standard in regards to sizes of devices. Unless you've actually made a call with a phablet, its hard to talk about how uncomfortable it is.

You don't need the Gear to make comfortable phone calls. You just use the Note as it is. I guessed you should look around and and see how things have progressed tremendously. It is a smartphone after all, and besides making calls, people perform other tasks on it. You don't sell millions of them if it did not make sense to the rest. I see lots of women carrying the Note or Note 2 in Singapore. No one looked foolish using it making calls, because lots of people are using phone with huge screens nowadays like the Sony Xperia, HTC Ones, S3, S4 etc. Ok, the Galaxy MEGA is crazy, but people still buys them. And no onebats an eyelid seeing someone using it. Instead people commenting how 'small' iPhone is. So people adapted as they always have with big screen phones. And I don't think we are moving back.

As opposed to the difference between the Note 2 and 3? Let's be honest, Samsung didn't do anything revolutionary this time. Just like Apple won't in a week. They both just refined their products. And that is fine. Can't expect revolutionary changes every year.

i always love the way samsung try to educate its costumer by making various helpfull ads.. not like ads from other company where there's only a bunch of people talking and praising about how good and revolutionary their product is while in fact it isn't..

Good products don't need educational ads because good products function intuitively. "Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." Steve Jobs.

I think the sharing options for scrapbook will determine whether or not the feature is a gimmick or pretty useful. And I'm still confused why action memo is a separate application from S Note...if you're taking notes at a meeting for example, some important contact information may come up. It's seems natural to include the info in your notes as opposed to switching applications just to record a #. At that point might as well launch the contact book
