Samsung Gear Smartwatch Sales Hit 800,000

Samsung claims that its Galaxy Gear has become the world's most popular smartwatch with sales reaching 800,000 since its debut two months ago.

Responding to market concerns the accessory would fail due to a lack of compelling features, the Korean company on Tuesday said Gear sales have been better than its own expectations and it would expand sales promotions for the wearable device for the year-end holiday sales.

Samsung's announcement also follows a report from Business Korea, which said that Samsung had only sold 50,000 Galaxy Gears to date.

Samsung has been trying to promote its new gadget through heavy advertising campaigns after the device got off to a rocky start after being critically panned by reviewers.

The $300 Gear works as an accessory to the Galaxy smartphone, with a small OLED screen offering basic functions like photos, hands-free calls and message notifications.

With Gear, Samsung attempts to prove that it is more than just a follower in innovation behind Apple, which is also widely speculated to be working on wearable device.

Samsung has recently expanded the compatibility of the Gear with more Android-based devices.
