Jurassic World trailer brings Samsung Galaxy Gear back from the dead too

The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch was about as well received as a party of raptors invading the kitchen. However, just like the dinosaurs in Jurassic World, the wearable device has made an unexpected return to prominence.

The critically-panned first-gen device makes a surprise appearance in the new, full-length trailer for Stevie Spielberg’s latest franchise instalment.

As spotted by Android Central, the Galaxy Gear is depicted on the wrist of a park employee, who is probably about to be gobbled up by the terrifying new species of dinosaur cooked up in the park’s labs.

The watch, identifiable in the trailer by its strap-loaded camera, appears to be running some sort of tracking software.
The presence of a speck of blood on his wrist, followed by the ominous gaze above, suggests the watch will next be seen sitting atop of a gargantuan pile of dino droppings.

The Galaxy Gear was one of the worst reviewed products on TrustedReviews last year with our reviewer surmising: “The Samsung Galaxy Gear is the highest-profile smartwatch ever. It could have turned the often-ridiculed clever watch into a desirable gadgety sub-category. Instead, it has reaffirmed the smartwatch as a gimmick that still doesn’t work in real life.

“It only lasts for a day between charges, it’s far too expensive for most people, and at launch it barely did anything at all. And as it hardly works with any phones, the market for it is exceptionally narrow. It’s a stinker, sadly. Maybe Samsung will hit the right note with the Galaxy Gear 2, but on this evidence Samsung has a lot of work to do.”

We’re excited to see what other tech gems are being used on Isla Nublar when Jurassic Park World is released on June 12 2015. An Amazon Fire Phone? A Sony QX10? An Argos MyTablet?

Perhaps, if these dino guys had better tech they wouldn’t get themselves into life-threatening scrapes, which invariably end in them being eaten.
