The Galaxy Gear's main body is larger, as it includes a curved portion that bends around to bleed into the watch's band. Generally speaking, the Gear is going to look and feel a little bit bulkier on your wrist. Pebble Steel is going to feel more like a standard watch.
Neither watch is going to feel noticeably heavy on your wrist, though the Gear is listed as being lighter.
Both watches' main bodies are housed in stainless steel. Having spent time with both devices, though, we'd say the Pebble Steel is easily the more premium-feeling of the two. The Galaxy Gear, meanwhile, looks more like a tech gadget that happens to live on your wrist.
Pebble includes two bands with each Pebble Steel. You get both a metal band that matches your color of choice for the main body, as well as a black leather strap. The Gear's integrated band is made of a firm plastic.
