Quite the impressive watch, if it gets released when they say it will, I might be one to go and grab it up. I think it will look damn sexy! People will look at it and be quite impressed. Check out  the features below.

It seems the screen will be 2.5-inches in size instead of 1.67-inches as our tipster had reported, though the resolution remains the same at 320 x 320 pixels and you still get an OLED unit that will support the usual tough and swipe gestures but won’t have text input. The dual-core 1.5GHz Exynos 4212 processor and Mali-400MP4 GPU powering the smartwatch are confirmed once again, and so is the inclusion of Bluetooth 4.0 LE for connecting to a smartphone, including NFC to allow for instant connections by bumping the watch and phone together.

The Gear will also have an inbuilt accelerometer that will allow for turning on the watch when it is brought up towards the eye, a technique no doubt implemented to manage battery power. Apparently there will be enough sensors in the Galaxy Gear to make it capable of competing with wearable computing devices like the Nike Fuelband – with the right apps (Samsung’s S Health will likely be loaded by default), the smartwatch could become your health tracker of choice. source article

So what do you think, will you be getting one?
