Here’s an accessory that you definitely can’t accuse Samsung of copying from anyone else. In addition to announcing its Gear S smartwatch earlier on Thursday, Samsung also took the wraps off a new set of headphones designed to compliment the device that are certainly original, to say the least.
Samsung’s new Gear Circle is an accessory that looks like a pair of headphones combined with a necklace and it’s the first device of its kind we can recall seeing. Samsung says the accessory was designed with “a magnetic lock which clasps around the user’s neck when not in use, as well as a vibrate function to signal incoming calls and notifications.” The Gear Circle also help users “receive calls, listen to music, and make voice commands in style through a Bluetooth connection” when paired with a smartphone.
The Gear Circle comes with Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity and a 180mAh battery that Samsung says offers 11 hours of talk time and 9 hours of audio playback time.
