TripIt’s in­te­gra­tion with the de­vice will let trav­el­ers ac­cess flight, ho­tel and other trip plans hands-free. They can check de­par­ture times and con­fir­ma­tion num­bers, call the air­line or ho­tel, get maps, look up di­rec­tions and share trip plans.

“Wear­able com­put­ing is per­fectly suited for trav­el­ers, so we’re very ex­cited to de­but TripIt for Sam­sung GALAXY Gear,” says Rich Adams, head of mo­bile for TripIt. “Imag­ine walk­ing through the air­port as you nor­mally do, but now your flight in­for­ma­tion is strapped to your wrist, so your hands are free to grab a cup of cof­fee or a mag­a­zine. This is an im­por­tant mile­stone one in our mis­sion to make life eas­ier for trav­el­ers.” TripIt for Sam­sung GALAXY Gear will be avail­able this fall. For more in­for­ma­tion visit
