Many companies have ventured into the world of smart watches, and Samsung has not been left behind. Indeed, the South Korean company has been at the forefront when it comes to innovation. Released a year ago, the Gear Smart watch device has amazing features its users can access. Apple has been competing with Samsung in this hi-tech industry but apparently, the Korean tech giant has managed to consistently up its game.The Smartwatch has some great features which compare to the ones contained in Sammy smartphones. It has a 1.63 inch screen and an inbuilt camera. With the watch, you can make your calls and receive them just from your wrist. The design is also great and quite appealing to the eye. The watch is a bit bulky but when on your hands, you will always feel comfortable and enjoy its use. Its face is that of stainless steel giving the watch a sturdy look. The strap is made of plastic material and is adjustable to fit snugly on your hand without getting loose.The Samsung Gear Smartwatch is available in quite a wide range of colors which include; Wild Orange, Black, Rose Gold and Mocha Grey. These colors are quite fashionable, and you can just as easily pick your best fit.  To the screen, you can easily access phone calls and zoom your gallery using two fingers and then analyse photos directly from the screen. The screen is well visible but the contrast is weaker than that of the smartphones.Regarding the Gear Smartwatch performance, one can view it as being slower than you would have expected. This is particularly true when you are accessing your contacts and call logs, but other applications are faster.On its compatibility, it will only work with the Samsung brand but not with others, which is quite a Sammy challenge compared to its competitor, Sony Smartwach which works with different brands. However, the company has promised to improve on this. After the release of the Gear Circle a few weeks ago, we’ll be eager to see what other device Samsung releases next.
