With the introduction of the Galaxy S 5 and the continued evolution of #TheNextBigThing, Samsung has also refined its wearables line with three new Gear options that will change the way you communicate and connect. Building on the amazing response to the Galaxy Gear, Samsung Mobile’s first wearable tech device, the newest wearables, the Gear Fit, Gear 2, and Gear 2 Neo, bring new and refined features based on public feedback of their first foray into wearable tech. The new Samsung Gears make keeping in touch more personalized than before. The second generation of these wearable tech devices not only offers more refined looks but a customizable experience as well.
The design of the Gear devices has been updated to show a more polish and streamlined appearance. Both the Samsung Gear 2 and Samsung Gear 2 Neo boast interchangeable straps and are compatible with standard 22mm pin watch bands to personalize your look. The Gear 2 is the premium wearable with a 2 megapixel camera (moved from the strap to the face for a more sleek design), thereby complementing its brushed metal finish. The Gear 2 Neo on the other hand, has a polycarbonate finish. The home key on the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo is positioned on the front of the face for convenient access.
Both Gear devices have 1.63 inch Super AMOLED displays and allow you to access and customize your wearable experience. Receive and respond to a calls, texts, emails, and app notifications quickly, right from your wrist. New shortcuts and additional app support make the device experience easier to navigate and take action. Though your music may not be at your fingertips, they will be at your wrist with the music app on Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. Transfer, store and shuffle through your favorite songs, even when away from your phone, plus you can pair the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo with Bluetooth headphones to enjoy your playlist while on the go.
The Gear 2 comes in the following color combinations: Titan Silver face with Black strap, Titan Silver face with a Wild Orange strap, and a Gold Brown face with Brown strap. The Gear 2 Neo comes in Black, Wild Orange, and Mocha Gray.
The Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit will be available in the U.S. this month across various channels. Gear 2, Gear Neo 2 and Gear Fit will be available through carrier and retail channels, including the Samsung Experience Shops in Best Buy.
