Software wise Galaxy Gear will be packed with Android 4.1 (may be Android 4.2 Jelly Bean). But Samsung will also put up some sort of its own design over the Android powered Smartwatch. Even you would not be allowed to download apps from Play Store. There will be special store for Galaxy Gear Watches.

As according to folks over GigaOm there will be:

  • Battery optimizations: the Galaxy Gear will use the accelerometer to detect movement and turn on when “it is moved up to the eye.”
  • Notifications: stopping at a certain notification (an email blurb for example), and then picking up the phone initiates an action on the handset, with that email blurb opening up on the phone
  • Twitter and Facebook integration
  • Health and fitness: the device packs “enough sensors that it can start to compete with wearable computing devices such as the Nike Fuelband,” the publication writes, suggesting that some of Samsung’s health-related (S-Health) apps may be found on board of the Galaxy Gear

So guys stay connected with us as we will be covering the IFA 2013 and Samsung is also expected to launch its Galaxy Note 3 along with Galaxy Gear.
