The “smartwatch clock” Galaxy Gear was announced by Samsung in September, along with the Galaxy Note 3, and in just over a month he arrived in Brazil. And as expected, the TechTudo ran after this new smart launch event, which happened on the last day 10. In this special, reveal our first impressions of this new gadget. After all, does the smart fashion watches?
Gear has a 3 x 3 cm screen, with a resolution of 320 x 320 pixels and a density of 227 PPI screen. In practice, it seems small, but is equivalent to the body of a large clock, typically aimed at male audiences. On the other hand, despite the big screen who have stubby fingers will face some difficulty when trying to click on the four icons which divide the screen.
Despite belonging to the Galaxy family, the Gear doesn’t have a very striking color or interface. Only with a black background and a few commands as possible with your fingers.

The Watch has a 1.9 megapixel camera built into the wrist, which is made of plastic with metal finishings. Is not very difficult to fit him in the arm, but it’s kind of questionable use of a camera so small in the gadget. To hit the shot, simply tap on the screen in camera mode. You can also record videos in the same quality, and the pictures can be recorded with sound.
The resource’s Voice in Portuguese-the “Siri” from Samsung-is a good helper to make calls by the smartwatch clock, only engaging the voice command, without having to touch the screen; a practical alternative that avoids errors when you run quick commands on small touchscreen. However, it’s a little weird to run voice commands with a device attached to the wrist-which brings us immediately to the ancient Japanese serials, with large watches communicators. In General, it does not work as well as Communicator.
The Galaxy Gear can be synchronized with other gadgets from Samsung, the Galaxy Note 3, released on the same day. the unit also has applications such as Banjo, accessing social networks, Evernote, to organize tasks, MyfitnessPal, to control diets, among several others. More programs can be downloaded on Samsung Apps.
Curious, the watch also has a lock feature that locks the screen if there’s no one around in a 1.5 meter RADIUS.
Internally, the gadget has a 800 MHz processor, 1.63 inch Super AMOLED screen, 4 GB of internal space and 512 MB of RAM-these settings similar to cheaper smartphones sold in 2012. The battery, Li-ion, has 315 mAh; enough to make it last more than a day connected to a device with your Bluetooth 4.0.
The weight of 73.8 g is not sense to hold the watch in his hands, but he weighs a little on my wrist.
Earlier this month, the Gear was marketed as a toast of Galaxy Note 3. From day 10, however, it will be available in stores for 1,299 R$, with bracelets of various colors, such as red and yellow. There is a version with gold metallic components.
In November, the clock may be synchronized with more devices: Galaxy S3, S4, S4, S4 Active mini, Galaxy Mega and Note 2.
At the launch event, the Samsung also took the opportunity to show your new Galaxy tablet Note 10.1 2014 Edition, which has already been released abroad.
