Did Samsung announce the release date and price of its Galaxy Gear smartwatch today?
Samsung announced the Galaxy Gear smartwatch on September 4, 2013 at its Unpacked 2 event in Berlin. The watch "will be launched with the GALAXY Note 3 in more than 140 countries around the world starting from September 25," according to the press release. However, Engadget has learned that the "US and Japan will have to wait 'til October to get their hands on one." The watch will be $299 at launch and is only compatible with other Samsung devices running Android 4.3, Jelly Bean. This includes the newly announced Galaxy Note 3 and 10.1, and eventually the Galaxy S III and S 4.
