While tomorrow is the official “meet the press” day for the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, as it will be officially introduced in Berlin on September 4.
VentureBeat delivered the goods 48 hours earlier with an inside scoop from an anonymous inside source (perhaps someone in PR or marketing?) that works at Samsung, South Korea’s largest manufacturer of consumer-electronic products.
The Samsung smartwatch is described as a “blocky health tracker with a camera.”
Are Google, Apple, and, the darling of Kickstarter, Pebbles watching with interest, as they prepare to rollout their squadron of smartwatch models to market?
VentureBeat lists all the features on the new smartphone.
….It has a 4-megapixel camera built into the strap, and tiny speakers in the clasp. You can measure health data through the camera. Take a picture of your food, and you can tag it according to what type of food it is, such as “grains” or “fat.” It’s a clear swipe at Google Glass — but would anyone take photos of their meals from a watch, other than for spy movie appeal?
