Samsung’s shown itself to be entirely unafraid when it comes to smartwatches. It’s willing to try any size, any spec, any combination of features in an attempt to figure out what consumers want in a wearable. Its latest try, the Gear S, is a combination of Samsung’s newest and best ideas – and a couple of ideas it’ll soon leave by the roadside as well.
Once the Moto360, the round LG G Watch R, and Apple’s supposed entry come out, we will look at these ridiculous Samsung contraptions in the same way we look at these now.
My favourite moment in the video: when the full QWERTY keyboard pops up. Samsung just has no taste.
I don’t think the 6800/E70 deserve a weird design award.
Still miss a similar typing speed on modern smartphones.
