Many thanks for all the replies. My 'guess' is we are only going to find out the facts when its printed on the Samsung sight.? I have been reading review after review and not yet read the mention of Gorilla glass 111 until you kindly posted the links above.
Still cannot even find a manual on the Galaxy Gear not even one on the official Samsung sight! I would also like to know what the Gear glass is made from. I see some companies already producing screen savers for the Gear but on a watch? Mmmm, odd, very odd.
