Samsung Electronics Co said on Tuesday its Galaxy Gear has become the world's most popular smartwatch with sales reaching 800,000 since its debut two months ago, defying some market concerns the accessory would fail due to a lack of compelling features.

The South Korean firm said Gear sales have been better than its own expectations and it would expand sales promotions for the wearable device for the crucial year-end holiday sales.

Impressive for a poorly reviewed device. I guess this is what marketing and bundling can do - then again, without bundling, flagship smartphone sales would crumble like three week old bread too.

Why does ANY one believe ANY number in relation to Android. I mean I understand that people want to support it and promote it but come on at this point you can't believe any number.

We have this number that Sammy is trying to spin, then you read the fine print and you see its 800,000 shipped. Out of that the reality is a little over 50,000 sold.

The fact that Sammy doesn't give out numbers unless they are trying to spin should be clue enough its BS.
