Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo Smartwatches Are Official


Samsung Electronics today introduced the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches, both based on a Tizen-based wearable platform.

Tizen is an operating system Samsung is developing with Intel and a handful of telecommunications companies, including Japan's NTT DoCoMo and France's Orange SA. Samsung keeps working with Google, using its Android operating system to power most of its devices.

"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."

Samsung said its new smartwatch will come in two models, including a lower-priced version with no camera function.

Both devices offer a lightweight design. A Camera is equipped to a main body instead to strap, making the Samsung Gear 2 a sleek smart companion. The lower-priced Gear 2 Neo version has no camera function.



Strap color options include Charcoal Black, Gold Brown and Wild Orange for Gear 2 and Charcoal Black, Mocha Grey and Wild Orange for Gear 2 Neo. The home screen background, clock face and font are also customizable.

The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are companion devices, as they allow users to accept or ignore incoming calls and messages, and providing notification options based on a user's activity.

Both devices are also offering users standalone features, such as controlling electronic products such as TV, settop box through WatchON Remote application in their own home with an embedded IrLED sensor. They also feature a standalone music player with Bluetooth headset.

Both devices also offer personal fitness coaching in real time, allowing users to develop a customizable fitness routine and monitor their heart rate.

Finally, the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo let users connect to a variety of Samsung devices and access an application ecosystem as the first wearable powered by Tizen based wearable platform. Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are compatible with more than dozens of Samsung Galaxy smartphones at launch.

Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo will be available around the world starting from April.

Google and LG are also said to be working on a smartwatch that will be unveiled in June at the Google I/O conference.
