Samsung Gear A – Samsung preparing to launch Smart Watch
It seems that this is the year of watches as soon after the launch of Apple Watch, Samsung is to follow with its own Smart Watch, Samsung Gear, along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Previously Samsung was due to launch The Gear A in the 1st half of the year 2015 but in order to get the maximum response and ensure it would be noticed, Samsung delayed the launch until the 2nd half of the year. This decision was made so the hype over Apple iWatch has faded away by that time.
Though this is not the first time Samsung is bringing out a smart watch, there is some difference between the Gear A with and the previous version. The shape of this one is expected to be round with the option of rotating it with the help of a ring. Unlike the Apple Watch, Samsung smart watches are stand alone , which means they can operate without a phone.
