Is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Gear Worth Buying?

It seems that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 gear is being subjected to a lot of debate. And why shouldn’t it? After all, it has given users a chance to finally experience communication like James Bond.

Do you remember the time when you used to pretend that your watch was a spy gadget and you used to mimic Mr. Bond’s actions?

Well now you can do it for real. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 gear allows you to access the notifications of your smartphone (by pairing the devices with the help of an app) and you can send / receive calls and texts right from the gear. But is it really worth it?

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Gear

With a price tag of $300, you would expect the gear to contain features that justify the cost. Here is a rundown of the basic specs:

  • Processor: 800 MHz Processer
  • Display: 1.63 inch (41.4mm) Super AMOLED (320 x 320)
  • Camera: 1.9 Megapixel BSI Sensor, Auto Focus Camera / Sound & Shot
  • Video: H.264 codec, MP4 HD(720p) format, Playback & Recording features
  • Audio: AAC Codec supported, M4A format compatibility
  • Samsung Services: Samsung Apps, ChatON Services
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth® v 4.0 + BLE
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, Gyroscope
  • Memory: 4GB Internal memory + 512 MB (RAM)
  • Dimensions: 36.8 x 56.6 x 11.1 mm, 73.8g
  • Battery: Standard battery, Li-ion 315mAh

By simply looking at the features, you would consider to be somewhat satisfactory. But did you know that this device has amazing call clarity and you can hear the voice of the caller in the speaker even in crowded places. The microphone is also good and transmits your voice clearly. You can get more clarity by positioning the speaker in the direction of your mouth so that the sound is captured more effectively.

In terms of the interface, the gear has good navigation and all you need to do is to swipe the screen and you would be provided with different menus. Notifications can be accessed from the device and should you wish to take action upon any particular notification, then the relay function will simply take you to the desired screen on your smartphone so that you don’t have to spend much time in searching for it.

The gear has S-Voice which is pretty good considering that you can control the device with simple voice commands and you can dictate text while using the messaging feature. This comes in handy as the screen is small and typing with the virtual keypad can be tedious. And the microphone works its magic once again as it is able to pick up your voice commands perfectly.

You also have a lot of supporting apps that make the gear’s usage very convenient. Do not mistake this device to be a digital watch, as it has its own dedicated operating system so it does a lot of work that would have required you to take out your smartphone frequently. Moreover, the phone and the gear are paired up in such a way that you can find one device if you have the other in your position and with the watch, you don’t have to unlock the phone as it ensures that when you are within the range of the phone, then the phone will remain unlocked. The moment they are separated by a distance of more than 5 feet, the phone gets locked.

So there you have it. The gear is definitely worth its price tag, even though many of you would wish that the price could be lowered. But given the current scenario, I think it would be a great addition to your lifestyle.
