Samsung Galaxy Gear and Sony Smart Watch: 2 wrong bets

Samsung, a leading smartphone vendor, has introduced Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear in India. Sony Mobile added its smartphone watch as well. Both smart watches will not bring cheers to mobile users.

Galaxy Note 3 may be the darling device for premium users. Demand for Galaxy S4 is fading and Galaxy Note 3 will be a strong answer.

Is Samsung Galaxy Gear the right smart watch for Samsung users in India? Believe us that Samsung Galaxy Gear cannot be used with Samsung rival phones. This will be the first roadblock to Samsung Galaxy Gear which wants to spread us its wings around the hands.

Sony Mobile’s smart watch is an instrument around your hands that can be used as a phone. We cannot use more words to describe the latest device.

Priced at Rs 22,990, Samsung Galaxy Gear offers nothing significant for a smart watch user. Samsung introduced a squash champion at the recently held press meet in Delhi. She says she loves the smart watch. May be she is the brand ambassador and may not be buying at Rs 22,990.

Even if she is buying the smartphone companion (Samsung would like to say like this), does Samsung Galaxy Gear bring value for money? Not. GizmoLead.com would like to analyze in detail.

Samsung Galaxy Gear is a luxury accessory at a premium price.

Featuring 4GB Internal memory + 512 MB (RAM), Samsung Galaxy Gear comes with 800 MHz processor. Its Li-ion 315mAh battery is the last thing to discourage you from trying.

Sony SmartWatch 2 specs

  • 42 x 9 x 41 mm
  • 122.5 grams
  • 1.6-inch display (220 x 176 pixels)
  • Water-resistant
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Features include Email, Gmail, Facebook and Twitter

The1.63 inch (41.4mm) Super AMOLED (320 x 320) screen may be good. But do you need a phone and watch together with almost the same capabilities. If the phone watch is available for a price of Rs 22,990, you will give priority to a smarter phone than a smart watch.

Outdoor guys who want to capture picture may not be happy with 1.9 Megapixel BSI Sensor, Auto Focus Camera / Sound & Shot.

Samsung Galaxy Gear has several applications which support your daily life.

Sony Mobile also introduced a wearable phone like instrument. It is cost effective than Samsung Galaxy Gear. But we cannot call it a smart watch.
