Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch: Keep Your Hands Where I Can See Them

Perhaps the most alluring thing about wearing a smartwatch is the freedom to keep your hands out of your pockets. Clearly society will appreciate your manners and label you a fine citizen if you’re not digging into your jeans for glances at your phone every 11 minutes, right? If you’re a Samsung guy or girl, you might wanna set aside $299 for the Samsung Galaxy Gear. Boasting a 320 x 320-pixel, 1.63-inch AMOLED touchscreen, 1.9 megapixel camera for pictures and 10-second 720p video clips, and the ability to communicate with your other Galaxy devices, this metal-faced, rubber-strapped time-teller is due on US shelves in October. We’re hearing battery life will only be about 24-hours with regular use, so odds are your lonely pockets will still get some love.
