According to earlier reports, Samsung sold over 800,000 Galaxy Gear devices. The smartwatch is considered to be a failure by most analysts and this explains why Samsung needs to change the design drastically.

The Galaxy Gear features a 1.63" 320x320 (275 PPI) Super AMOLED display, a 1.9 mp camera (720p videos), 800Mhz processor, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, Bluetooth 4, and a 315 mAh non-removeable battery.
