While many have been less than impressed with the Samsung Galaxy Gear, you won’t find Santa Claus among them. In Samsung’s latest ad for its smartwatch, Santa Claus appears to be holding his own Unpacked event and the Galaxy Gear is the star attraction. The elves seem pretty impressed by Samsung’s latest Next Big Thing as Santa shows them how it can take pictures and answer phone calls:
If you think that it’s a bit much when Santa declares that the Galaxy Gear is not a watch but a “miracle,” just remember whose ad this is. After all, last year’s ad featured a rather saucy Ms. Claus beaming videos to Santa as was heading out to deliver his gifts.
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Gear at IFA 2013. By mid-November, it had reportedly sold 800,000 units despite only being compatible with the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) initially. Needless to say, Samsung did not miss touting that it’s now compatible with the Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy S III.
