Samsung made its foray into the smartwatch game today, revealing the Galaxy Gear at the IFA exhibition in Berlin. 

At first glance, Galaxy Gear appears most concerned with communication features, promising to relay calls, texts, emails and alerts. Hands-free calling is enabled via voice command, which also allows users to draft messages, create new calendar entries, set alarms and check the weather.

The camera capabilities are disappointing though — Galaxy Gear only offers a 1.9-megapixel camera, a far cry from the 41-megapixel model we recently told you about.
