A Phone You Can Wear On Your Wrist 

That’s right! There is now a smart-phone that you can attach to your wrist! Sounds like a new technology that you just can’t wait to get your hands on — right? Well, from the reviews it doesn’t seem as though the watch is truly worth wasting a buck on. In fact, although the watch is new and inventive,  the watch is expensive, bulky, and practically useless.

This new phone is called the Gear Watch, provided by Samsung. The cost of the watch is $300 and only works with one or two devices. Oh, did I forget to mention? You have to have a Samsung New Galaxy Note 3 smartphone or Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet using Bluetooth in order for the watch to work. If not, then the phone is even more useless.

The watch, although has several features that could “wow” a crowd such as making calls, receiving texts, receiving notifications and taking photos, just isn’t worth it because that’s all that it can do. You can see if you have a notification, but that just tells you that you need to get your phone out! I thought the purpose of the watch was to take your phone out less? Instead,  you have to take it out even more!

Not only that, but you also have to install an app on this particular phone in order for the Galaxy to work. What’s the point? The watch doesn’t even have the compatibilities for all other apps such as twitter, gmail, and more! The watch needs work.

The phone is also uncomfortable and unfashionable. If I plan on wearing a watch out I want it to at least be comfortable on my wrist, and  look appealing to the eye.

Although the watch sounds like a dread now — it’s not the end of the world. In fact Apple, Microsoft, Google, HTC, and LG are all working on ways to have an attachable device so that people can be hands free.

But, as of right now, all we have is the Gear Watch, which isn’t terribly bad for being a first wearable device.
