Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches unveiled

Samsung is at MWC 2014 with most other major companies in the mobile world. The company has rolled out is new wearable electronic devices at the show including the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches. Samsung is hoping the new smartwatches prove more popular than the original.

“Samsung continues to lead innovation in the wearable market by creating devices that are completely integrated into the lives of consumers through extended connectivity features, stylish customization options and a robust application ecosystem,” Said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics. “With the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, we have enhanced everything consumers love about the Gear to offer unparalleled smart freedom in their everyday life.”

The new watches have a much more attractive design than the original they are available in multiple face and band colors to suit your style including black, brown, and orange. The watches are able to control electronic devices like TVs and set top boxes using WatchON Remote app. The smartwatches support Bluetooth and fitness coaching.

The watches are compatible with more than a dozen Samsung smartphones at launch. This will continue to be the biggest downfall for Samsungs smartwatches, not only do they not support all Android devices they don’t even support all Samsung Android devices.

The Samsung Gear 2 has a 2MP camera, 300 mAh internal battery, and sensors for heat rate, an accelerometer, and gyroscope built in. The processor is a 1GHz dual-core unit, and the watch has 512MB of RAM. Internal storage is 4GB. The small 300mAh internal battery promises 2-3 days of typical use. The watch has a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED screen.

The Gear 2 Neo lacks the camera the other watch offers. It uses the Tizen OS and has the same 1.63-inch Super AMOLED screen. It has the same sensors, processor RAM, storage, and battery life as well. The only difference between the two appears to be the camera.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
