The world of tech just got a little more stylish this past week as Samsung’s latest “wearable tech” officially launched in the marketplace.
Last Thursday night in Toronto, Samsung Canada hosted a splashy blue carpet party mixing tech and style media to the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the new Samsung Galaxy Gear. The party included A-list celebrity stylist Leslie Fremar who brought in favourite fall looks from Holt Renfrew. Fremar, former assistant to American Vogue’s Anna Wintour, is one of the most sought after stylists in Hollywood . Her client roster includes stars like Scarlett Johannson, Reese Witherspoon, and Julianne Moore.
The Samsung Galaxy Gear is a unique “time-piece” like device that responds directly with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. What does it do? When I played around with the device at the party I thought this would be great for someone, like me …
addicted a “multi-tasker” who is constantly checking my mobile device for texts, calls, taking photos, or waiting for emails. The GEAR will let you know what you’re receiving from the main device.
This is perfect for those who attached to their device and can’t let go at
bedtime dinner in a restaurant! This is waaaay more discreet!! Or your phone is stuck your handbag across the room or in your briefcase and you just can’t get up because you’re stuck in front of your boss and don’t want to be rude …no worries! According to the reps at the event, the devices will correspond with each other within a 300 ft. range (approximately – I’ll let you know).
The GEAR will also take photos and voice memos…yes, your inner James Bond will come through!
I’ll be reviewing both devices in the next month courtesy of TELUS. Stay tuned!
The GEAR is available currently in sleek black, white and ORANGE — guess which one I’m eyeing?
