Though the Galaxy Gear comes with some extra features that makes it more worthy, however a good price difference could attract more users towards the Sony SW2. Moreover the Gear only works with Galaxy Note 3 or devices running Android 4.3 and as for the Sony Smartwatch 2 it supports devices running 4.0. But naturally the low price and compatibility makes SW2 a default option as Galaxy Gear Will Cost You For Rs 22900
Sony says there are a lot of apps for the device available on the Play Store and many more are on their way. Right out of the box, you can control the phone’s music player, get alerts and even control the phone’s camera. So your phone could be pointing at the subject and you can see the viewfinder on the watch and click the photo.
The real question, however, is whether there is really a market for a device like it for this price. It’s interesting to see both Samsung and Sony have taken different routes but at the moment they are just coming up with proofs of concepts trying to gauge what clicks with the users. While Sony’s watch provides spartan features and is compatible with most Android smartphones, Samsung has tried to cram it with features and made it a companion device for its premium Galaxy range of smartphones.
