Reasons for — and against — buying a Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch | Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch | Scoop.it

Reasons for:

It tells time like a boss.

Comes in seven colors

You can pause your phone's music and videos without going to the trouble of actually touching your phone.

Easy-ish navigation

reminiscent of the adorable square 6th-generation iPod Nano.

The screen is pretty.

It's a speakerphone … on your wrist!

 

Reasons against:

The camera takes terrible pictures and is awkward to point.

The first wave of third-party apps is lame.

Battery dies after a day, and the special charging dock means you may not be able to charge it quickly when you're in a pinch.

Yet another roadway distraction.

For the moment, it only pairs with the Galaxy Note 3

S Voice, ugh. Say you're reading a message, and you tap the menu option "S Voice reply." The system doesn't know what message you came from … or that you want to reply to it!

No heart rate monitor for workouts.

It's $300.Want me to go on? OK …
