Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smartwatch has quite a few people talking, but apparently one of the manufacturing giant’s executives thinks the device “lacks something special.” Originally attributed to Samsung’s VP of Strategic Marketing, the source of the quote is now unconfirmed, and it seems rather odd that an executive would possibly talk down about a product that is about to hit the market. According to Engadget, the quote does in fact come from a Samsung exec, just no word on which one exactly.

In regards to what is lacking, the quote shows that someone feels the user interface of Galaxy Gear is missing something.

We’ve acknowledged that our Gear lacks something special. With more investment for user interface and user experience, Samsung devices will be better in terms of customer satisfaction.

The individual goes on to state that Samsung was simply looking to create a “wow” product, but at the same time, touted Samsung’s upcoming unveiling of its super-curved smartphone.

What’s your take on Galaxy Gear? Is it missing something special?
