Samsung Galaxy Gear is one of those gadgets that you have to have in your hands to like. Before and even after I'd seen it, I was plagued with questions Samsung has yet to answer: Will it be really expensive? How long will the battery really last? Are there enough apps? Is it, in fact, entirely pointless?
But when I actually strapped the Gear on my wrist, I was won over. The Gear is a smartwatch, a wrist-worn touch-screen timepiece that talks to your phone, so you don't have to be forever fetching your phone from purse or pocket. It sits on your wrist and happily controls your music, tracks your exercise, installs your favourite apps -- it even makes phone calls.
