Read the text carefully, then do the following activities:

Samsung has entered the newly-emerging smartwatch market by unveiling its multi-function timepiece, the Galaxy Gear. It is a digital watch with a difference. Wearers can make telephone calls, receive emails and take photographs. It can also run dozens of Android applications on its 1.6-inch (4.064 cm) screen. Users navigate through different screens and functions using swipes. What's more, it comes in a range of vibrant colors that add a Science fiction feel to its stainless steel body. The device will be on sale from September 25th and comes with a $299 price tag. Samsung beat its main competitor Apple to the market. Industry insiders expect Apple to reveal details of its smartwatch within a week or two.
Analysts have mixed reactions to the galaxy gear. Jack Gold of J.Gold association suggests the product is overpriced. He said Samsung would need to price it under $100 to get mass-market appeal. He added:” at $300, that’s probably as much as most people will pay for the phone itself”. Independent analyst Jeff Kagan said the gear “is another step into the future”& that Samsung continues to” push the innovation envelope”. He predicted it would be as popular as Samsung’s smartphones & tablets. A Samsung spokesman said: ”we have created something incredible. You don’t need to get your phone out anymore. Gear takes the entirely of your digital world & places it right where you can see”.
