When Samsung announced the Galaxy Gear it made a lot of heads turn, but as poor reviews kept flying through the door it sort of diminished the appeal of the smartwatch for a lot of people. Despite poor reviews this hasn’t stopped Samsung from making a big deal of the Galaxy Gear. In fact it has just started airing three commercials that attempt to hype up the smartwatch and educate people about the benefits of the product.
The first commercial has the stereotypical go around the streets and showoff the gadget to random people style.
The second one is actually very well done in my opinion and is similar the the commercial Apple aired for the original iPhone titled Hello. Essentially you are shown various movies/TV shows where people used smartwatches like Star Trek, Jetsons and Astro Boy and then you get presented with the Galaxy Gear. Bringing across the fact that the future is here.
The last commercial is similar to the second one and shows off renderings of smartwatches from popular movies/TV shows.
If you didn’t know anything about the Samsung Galaxy Gear then these commercials would certainly catch your attention. Especially people who grew up watching shows like Star Trek, The Jetsons, Knight Rider etc.
Samsung certainly beat the likes of Apple and even Google to the punch of releasing a smartwatch, so it will be interesting to see how consumers respond to it over this holiday season. What do you think of theses commercials? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
