    It looks like the Galaxy Gear will work with most Galaxy phones (and other Android devices), not just the GN3. But it's pretty exciting to see how the new Galaxy devices will work together with each other. I'm guessing that the Sept 4th show will be how the Note works with the Watch along with the S4.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one excited about Gear!!! I have been going smart-watch crazy, literally!!! MetaWatch, Pebble, Sony, Agent, Kreyos, HOT, Omate, Neptune Pine, Google acquisition of WiMM, etc... Now waiting for the real deal from Samsung - Gear! Just hope it won't be disappointing with 10hr battery life as some rumors suggesting.

    Of course, excited about Note 3 as well. Just have no idea how it will be introduced through carrier this time cause AT&T always gets it first :( while I have to wait for Verizon to catch up...

    I'm on Verizon as well, and I fully expect to get the GN3 to released a month after all the other carriers similar to last year.

    I'm excited for the gear as well. I hope the watch lasts at least a day on a single charge. I think it's the perfect pair with the GN3 as it's something big to go along with something small. lol I just hope it has S-health and an easy notifications feature.

    I'm on Verizon too. If the N3 isn't out by end of Sept, I will probably go with the G2.

    If it wasn't for my grandfathered unlimited data plan, I'd hate Verizon.

    not sure about the gear watch. Some designs look awesome (T3). The rest look awful.

    I also suspect the first release will be pretty basic and its one of those things where tech will play a big part and the next version will be much stronger.

    We'll see in 3 days!

    In that picture, yes. On Sept 4th, I have no doubt the real Gear will look a lot better :) From what I'm hearing, Sammy likes to put disguise on their top devices to conceal the real shape/dimensions. This is all a very cleverly designed marketing campaign to generate a buzz :D

    It's definitely ugly. The renderings look much better. We can only hope that's just an early production.

    With that said, the 10 hour battery life is far more offensive than the appearance of the watch. This watch should have at least 16-24 hours (wide range, I know) of battery life.

    agreed. i'm betting on the kreyos meteor. Hoping it delivers better than the pebble did but we'll see in November if they make good on it

    Looks like an old casio calculator watch.

    Of course its samsung....look at the cheap plastic strap lol

    ....and if you can't wear a watch from one day to the next its not worth having.

    Some brilliant renders have been kicking around but none of them look tough enough to take daily knocks. Sadly this does :( - i certainly won't be getting it! Apple will be peeing themselves laughing haha

    I thought it looked like a calculator watch when I first saw it!!. Definitely looks like a 1980's " back in the day" throw back.

    Fingers crossed that it isn't the final version

    Geez, I hope so. The one in the picture is disasterously ugly. My spell checker says that's not a word...methinks it will be if they put that watch on the market :(

    possibly 2.5GB of RAM instead of 3GB

    It's probably 3Gb of RAM physically. And 2.5Gb is what's left after OS or GPU using some part of it.

    Samsung Gear looks nice, but... It only works with a Note3 and a Note 10.1 2014-edition. So disappointing... Maybe Im worsed to buy Sony then.

    do you not think it looks low quality/cheap? Dont like the eye on the strap - the camera.
    Think I'll be giving that a wide berth.
    Liking the Note 3. Some nice touches and excellent features especially re the s pen. Not sure about the leatherette back...

    The watch will work with the N2, S3, and S4 when Samsung sends an update. The watch itself looks a bit rough around the edges. Not sure if I'd get it though I might just for the hell of it.
