In Samsung's commercial for its new Gear smart watch, it seems like the future has arrived.

Consumer Reports checked out the Samsung Galaxy Gear to see if it delivers.

The Gear does do a lot more than your average watch. It can make and answer phone calls, for example. You can also take pictures with the Gear with a simple command.

But the quality isn't very good. Plus the menus are hard to use on the small screen. And there's another drawback.

At $300, it's about twice the price of other smart watches, and it only works with one phone, the Galaxy Note III, which is also expensive.
