The first custom ROM for Samsung’s Galaxy Gear Smartwatch has been released and it brings a lot of interesting features with it. The most important being that it will allow the smartwatch to be paired with any Android device, so you do not need a Samsung Galaxy phone to use the smartwatch.
Earlier this week we leaked photos of Samsung’s upcoming Smartwatch the Galaxy Gear and now Samsung has officially announced the device at IFA 2013 in Berlin. So now we know what the Galaxy Gear actually is. The Galaxy Gear Smartwatch is exactly that a smartwatch, but it is made to be an accessory that works with your Galaxy smartphone.
Venturebeat got its hands on the new upcoming prototype of Samsung under the tag of the ‘Samsung Galaxy Gear’ and was able to leak a few tits and bits even before it was unveiled at IFA, Berlin. What we can see is only the image snapped from a promo video of the gadget as pictures were not allowed to be taken by any media personnel. The 3 inches Samsung Galaxy Gear, which is expected to release alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, is OLED (organic light-emitting diode) type and the resolution of the squared screen could unfortunately not be known.
We have been hearing about a SmartWatch from Microsoft for a little while now and The Verge has dug up some interesting information about it. Apparently the device has been in development for over a year now at Redmond Studios. Microsoft had originally planned to release a “Joule” heart rate monitor accessory for the Xbox, but the focus soon went to a smartwatch instead. That seemed like the logical choice as a smartwatch adds so much more functionality like working with Xbox Live, Windows Surface and Windows Smartphones.
