It's called the Galaxy Gear. A watch with a camera, a little screen to get texts and e-mails, and use social media. Samsung Chief Executive Shin Jong-kyun:

(Shin Jong-kyun) "All together Galaxy Gear brings you smart freedom and is a perfect companion to Galaxy Note 3."

The Galaxy Note 3 is the Samsung phone the watch links to, wirelessly. You can take and make calls on the watch, through voice activation but there's just a speaker and no earphone, so everyone around could hear. There are also fitness applications. And of course... A clock. It costs $299.

Apple is rumored to unveil a smartwatch next week.
