Samsung Galaxy S5 to be most advanced baby monitor when paired with Galaxy Gear smartwatch

Have you ever wanted to be able to use your top of the line smartphone as a baby monitor? Well, now you can with the Galaxy S5 when using a Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

Engadget reports that when the Galaxy S5 detects that your child is crying, it immediately sends a vibrating alert to your smartwatch. You'd think with all of the features the S4 currently offers there wouldn't be much more to add, given that there is only 9GB of usable storage on the S4, but they are moving forward, and adding even more to the Galaxy S5.

Samsung is always innovating, which is evident with the introduction of this feature. They're always pushing for bigger screens, faster hardware, and now a means to keep an eye out for your newborn. Although, some users may not be able to afford the Galaxy Gear smartwatch along with the Galaxy S5, let alone want to use it as a baby monitor. Though many users will most likely want to use an old fashioned baby monitor, and keep the highly anticipated Galaxy S5 to themselves.

This doesn't make any sense who on earth would buy a dedicated S5 as a baby monitor? I thought I was gonna read about some accessory that connects to the internet via WiFi, not the actual phone itself lol ;)

I feel like I'm being trolled. Its April 1st tomorrow :p

What if the phone rings and wakes baby up?

Samsung takes no responsibility for any loss of baby due to the use of these devices and features.

Exactly. I have a Galaxy Gear and whenever I walk from one part of the house to another without my phone I get a message telling me it's disconnected because it's out of range. Also, it would be rather inconvenient having to leave your phone in with the baby, especially as if you forget to to set it to silent you're just going to wake up the baby.

Baby monitors are cheap and are a lot more practical.

I'd buy it if it had some kind of brainwave synchronization field that it could use to silence the baby as soon as it starts crying.

Exactly my thought. One would have to leave his/her phone in the baby's room for this to even work. A baby monitor is cheaper plus I can play 2048 while ignoring my baby.

Exactly. So rather than just a baby monitor, use this? We are sold smartphones on the idea that they are all-singing, all-dancing devices that we shouldn't be able to function in the modern world without...

So leave it by your baby's cot while you are elsewhere, you don't actually need it afterall!
