Samsung Gear: A Smartwatch in Search of a Purpose - Businessweek

A discouraging round of initial reviews for the $299 Samsung Gear
"But as a product itself, the Gear underwhelms at first glance. Samsung is an immensely capable company, with expertise in semiconductors, materials, displays, and so many other categories. But the company’s main obstacle has been its overwhelming desire to show all of those competencies at the same time. The Galaxy S3 and S4 smartphones were launched with an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink assortment of features and capabilities. The Gear is another chapter in the “Do Everything, Show Everything” book that Samsung’s writing. With the Gear’s significant limitations and lack of a clear reason for existing, it remains to be seen whether customers want to read that book."
