Samsung Smartwatch Galaxy Gear to launch on September 4

So what should you expect from Samsung's smartwatch? Lets explore certain features that will be mandatory for the device. Why mandatory? Simply because existing smartwatches like the Pebble and Sony's MN2SW already have these features.

  • A touch Screen
  • The ability to connect to a smartphone and read text messages and even e-mails off the smartwatch's screen.
  • The ability to control your smartphone's music app.
  • Facebook and Twitter integration
  • Additional Google Play apps. For instance, Pebbel has apps that turn your watch into a device that calculate distance cycled/jogged, along with an option to display speed, distance and pace data. It even has an app that can serve as a Golf Range Finder.
  • Watch faces that can be changed like wallpapers or themes.
  • An alarm (duh!)
  • Weather Alerts
  • Caller ID when you're getting calls on your smartphone. This way, you want have to dip into your handbag or pocket to pull out your phone for unimportant calls.
  • And a battery that lasts for at least 3-4 days of typical usage.

Apart from this, take a look at the specifications listed in some unofficial reports. They claim that the device will sport a 1.67" AMOLED (320x320 pixels) display, along with 1GB of RAM for multi-tasking, 2MP camera for images and an Exynos 4212 chipset.
