One of this gadget's most innovative features is that, at any moment, you can look at your wrist and know the exact time. Phenomenal.
Other tech specs include:
- 1.63-inch Super AMOLED display (320x320 pixels)
- 4 GB internal memory
- 2.0 MP camera with 720p video at 30 fps
- 300 mAh battery (2-3 day battery life)
- Bluetooth 4.0 LE
For fun, we removed the band and weighed this little timepiece: 41 grams (less than 33% the weight of a Rolex Daytona -- in the tech world, we're pretty sure that makes it three times better).

It's still too thick for my taste but I do like the overall design.

Good to see the improved form of the Galaxy Gear. The Galaxy Gear was cumbrous and large, it's clearly looking much better now. But the real issues people faced with the previous version were mostly software related. Are the interactions still asymmetrical or were those fixed in this version?
Only time will tell how people react to this one as they complained about the lack of utility of the previous version.
