First look at the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch

Samsung NZ let me take the first Galaxy Gear in the country home this weekend so I could have a play with it.  Unfortunately for me it was commandeered by Ronan (son of the gadget guy) for most of that time.  See how I (or should I say we) found it in this short Youtube video review.

Announced at IFA in Berlin on Wednesday, the Samsung GALAXY Gear promises to let users live in the moment while staying connected to their Samsung GALAXY devices. This new generation smart-watch notifies users of incoming messages, such as calls, texts, emails and alerts, delivers a preview of those messages. The user then has the opportunity to accept or discretely ignore those messages.
