Poll: Is the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch your next gadget?

Samsung Galaxy Gear

The smartwatch wars are well and truly underway.

Following the crowdfunded Pebble, Sony announced the waterproof SmartWatch 2 earlier this summer. Samsung yesterday unveiled the Galaxy Gear which even packs a 1.9MP camera. Qualcomm followed that up with its own Toq smartwatch with a Mirasol always-on display and battery life that promises to eclipse that of the Galaxy Gear. And don’t rule out the rumours that Apple is working on its own iWatch along with a bevy of other manufacturers including Google, Microsoft and Motorola.

Did what you see yesterday convince you that your wristwatch (assuming you even have one) needs to make room for a new smartwatch? Let us know in our latest poll.
