Galaxy Gear Note 3 find my device

One of the coolest features of the Galaxy Gear/Note 3 combo is the find my device feature. When you find yourself in a situation where your device is just nowhere to be found — but you know it’s around somewhere — the two devices have the ability to find one another.

It works both ways, too: lose your phone, the watch can locate it — misplace your watch, and the Note 3 has you covered. Simply get into the app on either device you have, and you’re on your way!

Of course, this only works when the devices are paired, and powered on. So, if you’ve misplaced your watch for more than a day or so, you could be in trouble!

Check out our walk-through video of the find my device feature on the new Samsung devices below. Does this entice you to splurge on the combo? We want to know!

    are people really this inept that they can’t find their phone?…these are the same ones who also complain about phone problems too! Gee I wonder if the problem is the phone or the operator of the phone! Do’h! What get’s me is that those same people usually have such high opinions of themselves!
