Samsung planning to sell 2-3 Galaxy Gear’s per 10 Galaxy Note 3′s

The launch of the Galaxy Gear will mark the start of a whole new product category (well, not exactly new, if Sony has a few words to say about it) that’s set to bloom over the coming years, but it seems that Samsung isn’t exactly looking to sell a lot of its smartwatch initially, apparently setting a target of selling two to three Galaxy Gear’s for every ten Galaxy Note 3′s.

Samsung understands that demand for the Gear won’t be huge at first (especially since it will only work with the Galaxy Note 3 initially, and the S3 and S4 after an update to Android 4.3), but thinks that will change significantly in the next few years. That’s not a far-fetched claim, especially since once Apple launches its rumored iWatch, the smartwatch market will probably intensify tenfold, and we’ll see the two tech giants battling it out for supremacy once again.

Are you guys interested in the Galaxy Gear? Barring the price, is a smartwatch something you want to strap on to your wrists?

sorry to burst samsung’s bubble but sgn3 will not sell as good as note2, it has a lot of reasons…

for example:
1. note 2 price will go down from now on…
2. those extra 0,15 (5,55 – 5,7) inch won’t be recognizeable
3. that new hardware = meh. it is just higher numbers but realtime experience is something different and after a month of using note 3 will lag too thanks to touchwiz
4. no technological progress in this 3rd generation

if samsungs decides to make google edition galaxy note 3, i’m buying one for me and one for my girlfriend 200%

I advise Samsung to give a free Gear with Note3, and by this it will make sure that the sales will be equal, and I’ll be the first one to get a Note 3, LOL

I would have bought it if it was for all devices running android 4.0 and up (like the sony smartwatch)

That’s actually not a good idea. BLE 4.0 works only on Android 4.3. So, a device has to be on 4.3 version to take advantage of BLE.
