samsung-gear-2-0

Samsung’s back with a new smartwatch after its Galaxy Gear flopped hard. The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are Tizen-based (instead of Android) smartwatches with sleeker designs. They’re slimmer, faster and overall more stylish.

The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo both have a 1.63-inch (320 x 320) Super AMOLED display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and Bluetooth 4.0 LE and infrared blaster. Battery life is now 2-3 days with normal usage and six days with low usage compared to 25 hours on the Galaxy Gear.

The mic has been moved from the wrist clasp to the face and the camera’s been slightly upgraded to a 2.0-megapixel one with 720p HD video capture. You can think of the Gear 2 as the “pro” model and the Gear 2 Neo as the entry-level. While both smartwatches now sport a home button, the Gear 2 Neo lacks the camera.

Samsung’s new smartwatches also feature replaceable watch straps, which is sure to please people who like customization.

The Gear 2 will be available in Charcoal Black, Gold Brown, and Wild Orange. The Gear 2 Neo will be available in Charcoal Black, Wild Orange and Mocha Grey.

Price: $299 (Gear 2) and $199 (Gear 2 Neo)
