That's a lot of cash to part with, though the Note 3 does pack incredibly high-end hardware, including 3GB of RAM and a 2.3GHz quad-core processor. We're still working on our review of the Note 3, but we can already tell you that according to our benchmarks, it's the fastest phone we've ever tested.
That's very pricey, so if you're tempted to buy the Gear, your best bet is to wait and see if any networks are happy to bundle the Gear with the Note 3, or offer a discount when you buy both. I haven't spotted any such deals yet -- if you've seen a cheaper way to get the Gear, let me know via the comments.
Currently the Gear only works with the Note 3, but Samsung is sure to add compatibility for other smart phones sooner or later.
