Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch will have over 70 apps

Galaxy Gear

According to a new report, Samsung will apparently roll out over 70 apps for the recently announced Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Out of the 70 apps to be published, 12 are already available. Most of these apps will be utility based of course and will focus solely on the convenience of the user. Evernote is one such app which is making its way to the Galaxy Gear, which can save images taken from the device and store it securely on your account. Since the smartwatch doesn’t brag of hefty storage space, cloud based solutions are the only solution. Other functional apps like eBay, My Fitness Pal, Pocket and Path are also making its way to the Galaxy Gear.

The Galaxy Gear smartwatch was announced alongside the Galaxy Note 3 phablet by Samsung a couple of days ago. The smartwatch is arriving in the U.S. in October with a price tag of $299.99. Verizon is bundling the smartwatch with the Galaxy Note 3 for 599.98. The smartwatch can also be bought separately. It’s still early days to comment on the success of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, but initial reports have been fairly positive.
