Even though Samsung launched the Galaxy Gear smartwatch with lot of pomp and show three months back and has continued large scale ad campaign for the smartwatch, reports are that they have sold less the 50,000 Galaxy Gears since launch.

Business Korea is reporting, Samsung Electronics released the Galaxy Gear in time for the wearable computing generation. Yet this product has cumulative sales under 50,000, with daily sales of only 800-900 units. These low sales values for the Galaxy Gear are far below the initial expectations of the industry.

It has already been reported that the return rates for Galaxy Gear smartwatch is very high, which would further indicate that the sales are even lower. Also, most reviewers have called the Galaxy Gear incomplete and a beta product.
