Everywhere you turn these days smartwatches are making tech headlines.  But Eric Chilton found one that in his opinion sets the new standard.

The Samsung Galaxy Gear can receive/make calls, can give you a streaming weather forecast and even take pictures with it's 1.9 megapixel camera.  It syncs with your phone using Bluetooth and with its microphone and speaker you can take calls directly from the watch and carry on the conversation without ever having to take your cell phone out of your pocket or purse.  You can also recieve text messages as well.  One cool feature is the "Find my device" app where you can locate a lost cell phone by activating an audio alert from the watch and then follow the sound to locate your phone. This device only works with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 right now but that is changing as we speak... but do your homework before you head out to buy one.  The price tag is a heavy $299.

Check it out on VERIZON'S' website.
