Samsung Galaxy Gear
Samsung's first stab at a smartwatch, the Galaxy Gear has a premium metal design, lovely curved OLED screen, and even a camera in its wristband. It has plenty of potential, that is if Samsung ever decides to pair the gadget with useful software and support for other phones besides the Note 3.
- Overall score: 5.4 (2.5 stars)
CNET Editors' Rating
Average User Review

Starting at: $249.00
The good: The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch is attractive, comfortable, and makes it easy to see incoming calls
The bad: A lack of e-mail and social network support, limited compatibility with other devices, the external charging case, and hit-and-miss voice control seriously limit its usefulness.
The bottom line: Samsung's take on the smartwatch has some potential, and it does get some things right, but its inability to perform truly "smart" functions means it falls far short of expectations.
