Samsung's New Gadgets: Visual Tour

Samsung's Note 3 smartphone and Note 10.1 tablet feature sleek design bonuses, while the Galaxy Gear smartwatch breaks new ground.

The Galaxy Gear's simple apps include a stopwatch, music player controls and a pedometer, but it also has more advanced capabilities, such as Photo Mode selection and the ability to dial calls. The gadget also holds a few third-party apps such as Evernote, eBay, MyFitnessPal, Path and Banjo.

Though it has multiple capabilities, much of the Gear's functionality depends on its accompanying smartphone because the watch does not have Wi-Fi. Right now it is only an accessory for the Note 3, but Samsung anticipates that other Galaxy phones will become compatible in the future.

"The 10" screen has 2560 x 1600"... I wonder how much benefit users will actually get from all those pixels, at typical viewing distances. Still looks like a nice device. I am far from sold on the smartwatch, however, especially given the price and compatibility limitations.
