San Francisco, CA (KTNV) -- If you thought you were up-to-date with the latest technology, think again. A new gadget is in the works and it's wearable.

It's the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch, set to hit store shelves in the coming weeks.

Mikael Berner, the first to experiment with the tech toy, has been developing his smart reminder app "EasilyDo" to work with the new device.

The watch takes key pieces of your smartphone and puts them on your wrist.

In San Francisco on Tuesday, numerous cutting-edge pieces of wearable technology were revealed at the Glazed Conference.

The Omate TrueSmart watch is a full-fledged cell phone with a tiny keyboard that actually works.

There's the Basis band, full of health sensors which track your heart rate, skin temperature and movement.

Headset maker, Plantronics, is putting motion sensors into Bluetooth earpieces.
