Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Gear smartwatch in Berlin and says it can act as an extension to a smartphone. Watch.WATCH

Cape Town - Samsung South Africa has revealed the Galaxy Gear smartwatch and the Samsung Note 3 at an event in Cape Town on Thursday.

The Samsung Gear smartwatch will be launched in October 2013 at a recommended price of R4 599.

The recommended retail price for the watch in the UK is £299, which at the current exchange rate at the time of writing translate to R4 781.73.

The Samsung Note 3 will be available from Friday 27 September 2013 at a recommended retail price of R8 999.

The kicker here is that the Galaxy Gear isn't a stand alone smartwatch, but rather an extension of the Note 3, which means that you will need the Note 3 to use the Gear.

If you want this bundle, it will cost you around R14 000.
