It supports it own applications and 70 third-party applications at the time of launch including Run Keeper, Evernote, Path, TripIt and Snapchat.

It supports Bluetooth 4.0 connection to work. It is considered to be great foot step in the future of Electronics.

Samsung CEO JK Shin says that, "I believe it will become a new fashion icon around the world". Samsung Galaxy Gear is available in six different colors such as Jet Black, Mocha Gray, Wild Orange, Oatmeal Beige, Rose Gold, and Lime Green. The disappointment of Samsung Galaxy Gear is that, it does not support wireless earpiece and also is a disappointment for Samsung Gadget owners because it does not support some of its phone and tablets.

It looks like the previous calculator watch. It is the first smartwatch of Samsung. But considering the watch-phone, Samsung have already made it in 1999. The SPH-WP10 by Samsung is considered to be the first watch-phone in the world to combine the functions of a cellular phone and a digital watch . In 2009, Samsung again launched a watch-phone with 1.8 inch screen to reach the Europe customers but it had not reached the market due to some reasons especially of its price of 450 Euro.

Competitive Wearable Market:
Its really a great creativity in the wearable market because its going to mark the future of Electronics. Every competitive groups are making their involvement in wearable market. Apple, Google, Nike, etc., are making their best in the wearable market. Apple is a bit away from its iWatch to be launched. Google had launched its “Google Glass” and marking its step in the Future of Electronics and the wearable market.

Samsung Galaxy Gear 3 will be released in market along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in more than 140 countries around the world by this September 25. The drawbacks that a smartwatch will face is the battery time. In Samsung Galaxy Gear, 315mAh battery provides battery for one day of regular use. Apple iWatch is expected to come up with battery to stand for four to five days. Samsung says that, “Besides the initial hurdles of the Samsung’s Galaxy Gear, the Smart-watch had been launched successfully in the market”.
