In case you haven't already read our coverage of Samsung's big reveal of the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear or taken a gander at our hands-on video of both the phablet and the smartwatch, here's the gist. The former is an updated version of the Galaxy Note II with a new leather-textured plastic back, increased storage space, and a 1080p display. It's not wider than the previous model, but it's taller and packing more power inside along with a larger battery. The Gear is a smartwatch that can pair with high-end Samsung devices, but it's launching alongside the Note 3 and has thus far been shown off alongside that handset. Now Samsung has posted its first 18-minute hands-on video of the two devices working together. Brace yourself before watching, because the speaker's voice is, well, just hear it for yourself.
The video provides an in-depth look of the Note 3's stylus (otherwise known as the S Pen) and Samsung-exclusive bundled applications. The new Air Command is on display here, a little launchpad that comes up whenever you remove the S Pen from its bay that provides quick access to five stylus-specific apps - Memo, Scrapbooker, ScreenWrite, S Finder, and Pen Window.
To see the Gear in action, you will have to skip ahead to after the 13-minute mark. The speaker takes us through changing the smartwatch's settings using the Note 3 and answering a call. It's cool stuff, but is the watch worth it's $299 asking price? That's for you to decide.
