Video: First look at Samsung's smartwatch

Samsung's S-Voice app ont he Galaxy Gear isn't nearly as functional as Google (GOOG) Now, or even Apple (AAPL)'s Siri, but it still has the ability to let you initiate calls, send text messages, check the weather, set reminders or dictate notes with your voice. But with the microphone mounted on the backside of your wrist, how well the Galaxy Gear can actually hear your command remains to be seen.
