It helps to see the messages without opening our mobile phone and in turn help to save time
Samsung Galaxy gear does not provide playing games and download of software. There is some restriction when comes to social platform usage through these watches. These watches allow us to interact with the digitally advanced watches just the same way we interact with our phones. These watches have the feature of providing fitness services including health applications that are running, heart rate tracking, monitoring the sleep, scheduling of important events, showing notifications and answering calls.

Find my phone feature is a part of finding my gear in which the watch beeps if one has the mobile phone but not the smartwatch. It has an excellent battery life and rotating bezel feature. It comes cheaper in price compared to Gear S3.IT consists of Bluetooth features, 4g supportive facilities and a metallic body (Inouye & Huitema, 2017). The two buttons provide and the rotating bezel feature offers an excellent navigating feature allowing movement through applications. It is very tactile when rotated and compatible with all versions of Android 5.0 and above and even works with IOS 9 and iPhone. Stress management features with different types of exercises and workout sessions are provided in the watch. It maintains a track record of stress level and reminds us to breathe to decrease the stress level inside us. Overall it is an enthralling device that Samsung has made till now.
My rating here is 4.1
The screen size of the watch should be increased little to provide the little information which most of the phone characterize. The watch and the phone are in close with each other, the phone gets unlocked automatically. If the phone could not detect the smartwatch, the user will have to enter the password to open the phone. Password entering is a time-consuming process, therefore, a simple and easy way for logging in by the passwords that are stored in the smartwatch. Emails are not shown on the gear screen; just a notification showing new email received is displayed. So the feature of reading the first few lines of the email or may be the address of the sender should be incorporated inside Samsung gear watches.
