When an incoming message requires more than a quick glance, users can simply pick up their Samsung GALAXY devices and the Smart Relay feature will instantly reveal the full content on the screen. Enhanced voice operation with a built-in speaker allows users to conduct hands-free calls directly from the Gear, maintaining connections to their mobile communications without disrupting their daily routines. Users can also draft messages, create new calendar entries, set alarms, and check the weather on the GALAXY Gear with S Voice.

Extending the quick-record concept, Voice Memo lets users capture important thoughts or conversations from their wrists and save those voice recordings into texts on their Samsung GALAXY devices.

With the GALAXY Gear, users gain a wide range of favorite features that further increase the benefits of this new accessory including: Auto Lock, a new security enhancement that automatically locks and unlocks the companion smartphone screen with relation to the GALAXY Gear; Find My Device helps users find the location of their smart devices when they have been misplaced by making them beep, illuminate and vibrate; a music control feature allows users to browse, play and pause songs on their Samsung GALAXY devices even when they are not within reach; the GALAXY Gear also works like a Pedometer to track physical activity via enhanced, built-in sensor technology that systematically and automatically tracks key personal data such as calories burned, steps taken and distance covered.

The GALAXY Gear can be further personalized by selecting from six colors that will be available at launch: Jet Black, Mocha Gray, Wild Orange, Oatmeal Beige, Rose Gold, and Lime Green.


Together, GALAXY Note 3 and GALAXY Gear extend Samsung’s efforts to provide users with the opportunity to design their lives, to express their passions and to make everyday life more easy and enjoyable.
