Parents to be and existing parents may find the latest Samsung phone more useful than it looks. The Galaxy S5 is hiding a feature that some tech bloggers have just discovered. It can double up as a baby monitor. The only other thing you need is a Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

Tech bloggers discovered the "baby crying detector" hidden in the S5's accessibility menu. The feature uses the smartphone's microphones to detect your baby's cry and sends a vibrating alert to your Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

The feature works best when the phone is placed one meter away from your baby. [UberGizmo]
