The device didn’t fare too well according to reviews throughout the world (including ours) but somehow, the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch still managed to has a fantastic response throughout the world. That is, judging by the sales number that Samsung have announced earlier today.
Apparently, the company have sold 800,000 Galaxy Gear all over the world since it was released to consumers two months ago. With such an impressive number, Samsung claimed that Galaxy Gear is the most popular smartwatch in the market right now. The company has planned to expand Galaxy Gear’s compatibility with even more devices to make it compelling to even more users.
As impressive as it is, I am curious on how many of these 800,000 Galaxy Gear were purchased alongside Galaxy Note 3 since Samsung kept on promoting the watch as a perfect companion to the popular phablet. The company did mentioned that Galaxy Gear fared better than they expected, so I guess all is well in Samsung’s world at the time being.
