Samsung, the leading electronics device manufacturer always bag rave reviews for providing its users with user-friendly devices and products. It’s just a few months ago last September when the company launched the Galaxy Gear Smartwatch adding to the category of wearable devices at a considerable price tag of Rs. 22, 990, together with the Galaxy Note 3. But soon in early January we saw the first cutback in the price and the device dropped to Rs. 19,075. And of late the device went through the second reduction within the same month, sinking its cost to Rs. 14,990.
There might be question in your mind, why this constant reduction in the price? That definitely denotes to the scarce selling of the device in market. But Samsung is no way agreeing to this reason and argues that it had sold more than 8, 00000 units of the Smartwatch in its premier month. However, the company is still intact to the funda of advertising the product via marketing campaigns, fashion shows and heavy advertisements. Talking about the upcoming segment of the wearable device earlier this month, the company’s mobile executive VP, LEE Young-hee said, “When we release our S5 device, you can also expect a Gear successor with more advanced functions, and the bulky design will also be improved.”
Turning to the technical specs of the smart watch, it packs a 1.63 inch OLED display with 320×320 pixels resolution and is capable of making calls, record videos, display massages and capture snap shots with its in-built 1.9 MP camera. It too supports the S voice feature and is powered by a 800MHz Exynos single-core processor. Apart, it features a 4.0 LE Bluetooth and supports a speaker along with 2 mics. The S Voice feature of the Smart Watch initially worked only with Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. But later with the update of Android 4.3, Samsung paved the way for the Smart watch to get compatible with some other Smartphones like Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S III and Galaxy S4. The device packs almost 70 in-built apps and is claimed to be much powerful in battery since it gives a durable power performance of 27 hours.
Now it’s to be seen to what extent the company becomes able to augment the sell of its wearable product after slashing the price. What you think guys?
