Gear Fit, Gear 2 & Gear 2 Neo updates are currently rolling out to improve the overall experience of users. According to Digital Trends, Samsung passes modification to the Gear Fit, Gear 2, and Gear 2 Neo based on customer feedback.
Key enhancements as part of the update include:
Reportedly, the $299 Gear 2, $199 Gear 2 Neo, and $199 Gear Fit all have comprehensive health and fitness tracking capabilities and a heart rate sensor. All three have great looking color displays with water and dust resistance.
According to News Observer, Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches is powered by Samsung’s Tizen operating system. They are just slightly smaller and do away with the exposed screws of the original Galaxy Gear. There is a square home button mounted on the bottom of the watch face.
Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo have the same 1.63-inch, 320-by-320 Super AMOLED display that is readable outdoors. Both are packed with 1GHz dual-core processor, heart rate sensor, pedometer and an IR remote control. They also both offer up notifications, voice control, media control and a “Find My Device” feature. Users can also install and run apps, make calls, and send messages.
The Gear 2 has a 2-megapixel camera which Samsung moved from the band of Gear into the watch itself. It takes decent images and video for what it is. The Gear 2 Neo skips the camera for a lighter and less expensive package.
Battery life has been extended to two to three days of typical use and several days of low usage. A small charging cradle clips over the rear of the device.
These smartwatches are not compatible with non-Samsung devices.
