The Samsung Galaxy Gear is the latest smartwatch to hit the market, but we already know it is not as popular as the South Korean company would have hoped. However, they have since admitted they rushed the release of Gear, and is already working on a new version.
Some of you will look at the Galaxy Gear features and will struggle to understand why they would need one in the first place. If you are one of those who do not wish to spend $300 on this device and are open to platforms, then Apple already released a watch that was considered better and far cheaper.
Back in 2010 saw the release of the iPod Nano 6G for about half the price of the Galaxy Gear, and while it is not a fully fledged smartwatch, it does an impressive job at mimicking one, which can be seen in the video below.
The iPod Nano 6G vs. Galaxy Gear comparison video below might not be in English, but it allows you to have a visual look at how these two devices compare. Apple do not sell the Nano 6G anymore, but they are still available from certain sources, such as auctions sites. We also have a review of their specs here, where you will learn, which is the better value for money.
We have to wonder if Apple discontinued the design of the iPod Nano 6G because work on the iWatch was already planned? Changing the design of the Nano to make way for an Apple smartwatch would make perfect sense, as it is yet another device to add to their list.
Do you think it is right for people to compare the iPod Nano 6G against the Galaxy Gear, or is it practical to do so?
