Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo hands-on ,Samsung couldn’t wait until Unpacked 5 to reveal the new Tizen-powered Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches, updating the wearables will heart-rate monitors and more compact designs. The original Galaxy Gear caught our eye at its IFA 2013 launch but failed to set the smartwatch world alight, but Samsung is hoping more refined versions will. We spent some time with both models here at MWC 2014; read on for some first-impressions.
The old Galaxy Gear was well constructed but chunky, and Samsung’s decision to integrate the camera and speaker in the strap meant you were stuck with the rubber band it came with. That’s changed – for the most part – with the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, more streamlined and less distracting on the wrist, and now supporting regular 22mm straps.
