We were able to get hands-on time with the new Galaxy Gear smartwatch that was announced by Samsung this morning. The device syncs seamlessly with the Galaxy Note 3 and other Galaxy devices, adding a extension to your already-existing smartphone experience. With the Gear, you can take calls, view messages, emails and even snap pictures with its 1.9MP camera. The camera is built right into the watch’s strap, allowing you to easily (and even sneakily) snap pictures of whatever you would like. Stay tuned for a full hands-on video and Kellen’s reactions to the device. Also, ignore the giant metal contraption on the bottom. That was put in place for security, so us silly bloggers didn’t try to walk out with one. The Galaxy Gear goes on sale for $299 starting in October. Interested? Video. Gallery.
