It's not what you'd call massive, and it sits comfortably on your wrist.

There's a 1.9-megapixel camera tucked into the strap.

Only a single button sits on the outside. It wakes the watch up and activates the S Voice voice control.

The clasp is secure and easily adjustable.

The black and silver colours look quite smart.

It's not much bigger than a regular watch, and isn't unduly heavy, either.

It only pairs with the Galaxy Note 3 for now, although it will be updated to work with the Galaxy S4, S3, and Note 2.

The watch clips easily into its charging caddy.

The charging caddy is not a huge burden to carry, but it's easy to forget -- or lose -- and then there's not much you can do.

The caddy also provides NFC functionality.

If S Voice can't understand your contact's name, you can manually go into your contact list to find the person.

The media controller is a handy way of pausing your music, but that's about all it can do -- you'll need to go back to your phone to change albums or artists.

There's a built-in pedometer that syncs your steps back to the S Health app on the Note 3.

Other apps can be found in the app list, making it even more time consuming to find the tool you need.

Getting S Voice to work properly can be a bit tricky.

Incoming calls are displayed clearly, and it's easy to hang up if you don't feel like chatting.

If you take a call using the watch, you'll need to use its built-in speakerphone and microphone, rather than your phone or headset.

Messages are simple to flick through.

Responding can be awkward, as you have to dictate your message using S Voice -- it's not a good way of sending a private message.

The Gear's app store isn't what you'd call well stocked.
Caption by / Photo by Andrew Hoyle/CNET
There are various categories to choose from.

The majority of things on offer are different watch faces. Still, it's nice to be able to give your watch a bit of a personal touch.

The bulk of the settings for the watch are handled by the Gear manager app on the Note 3.

You can see all available watch faces to quickly select the one you like the most.
