Check out this hands-on video from Engadget that demonstrates the features of the Samsung GALAXY Gear smartwatch.

We haven't been blown away by any smartwatch's performance, and that's much the case here. The Gear feels awfully sluggish, whether you're launching an app such as Evernote or Path, or swiping down from the home screen to activate the camera. Watch faces, which you can upload from the Gear's Android companion app, performed well, as did the Music card, which simply serves as a remote for any music app (native or third-party) currently active on a connected device.

Take a look at the video below or hit the link for Engadget's hands-on report.

Actually the speaker phone works really good on it but Samsung messed up this time because now Apple iWatch or whatever it will be named will kick ass!!!

They just wanted to beat Apple to their idea first. That's why it looks so ugly!

Ugly, first of all. Then it seems to be still in to too early stage of development. It is not yet reach some degree of perfection to buy! For me, I would say "No wasting time on it thus no wasting any buck on the device."

what year was this watch made, 2001? Looks like the original garmin watch in 2000. They might sell 100 this year.
