Want a quick look at how the Galaxy Gear works with a Galaxy Note 3? Here’s a brief video demonstration from Samsung’s Unpacked event in New York City showing the watch, user interface and camera features.

Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear

Besides my own hands-on time and impressions of the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, I snapped a few minutes of a video demonstration at the Samsung event in New York City. This doesn’t show all of the features but instead gives you an idea of the user interface, performance and its reliance upon the Galaxy Note 3 for certain functions.

The Gear Manager software is the heart of the connection between phone and watch; you can’t run it on just any Android phone. At launch the software will only work with the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition tablet. Other Galaxy devices will gain support in the near future.

  1. The pebble is able to conserve energy using an e-ink screen. I wonder how long the battery lasts on the Galaxy Gear with a full color screen.

    1. It doesn’t

    2. I heard 25 hours. You have to charge it every day.

    After watching the video the watch seemed interesting (at least in the first minute) but became boring very soon. It is at the same time a technical marvel and UI design disaster.

  3. i think im just going to buy me an ipod nano and buy the wrist bands the nano looks way better as a watch

    1. Apple screwed up when they made the Nano larger. It used to make for a very good smart watch and excercise music source.

  4. The guy standing directly in front of the demonstration looks like he has to go to the toilet.

  5. The fact this isn’t a stand alone phone defeats the goal of not being tethered to you smart phone 24/7.

    Been using the Apple ipod nano with wrist band, and loving the UI and touch. Would realy like to test the Galaxy Gear.
