It's finally here: Samsung announced its Galaxy Gear smart watch, two days before the official opening of the IFA Berlin trade show.

The device's specifications are somewhat less exciting than what was rumored: a 1.63-inch, 320x320 pixel screen, a 1.9-megapixel camera, an 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage.

Samsung calls Galaxy Gear the "perfect companion for the Galaxy Note 3." This wording is not accidental the Gear will ship with the Note 3 and is fully compatible with it. Samsung doesn't go into details on compatibility with other devices, but claims the Gear will be compatible with the Galaxy range.

Six colors will be available at launch: Jet Black, Mocha Gray, Wild Orange, Oatmeal Beige, Rose Gold, and Lime Green.

Galaxy Gear will become available on Sept. 25 worldwide. The pricing has not yet been revealed.
