Samsung has already announced the follow-up devices to their Galaxy Gear smartwatch — the Gear 2 & Gear 2 Neo — and now has added to the bunch with the Gear Fit as well. The devices are slated to become available worldwide in April, but our pals at Android Central got some hands-on time with all of them at MWC.
Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo
The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are nearly identical — save for the fact that the Neo lacks a camera. Both devices are slimmed down a bit and since the camera of the Gear 2 has been moved to the watch face, the straps on both are now removable and can be swapped out with any standard 22mm band. The speaker is also moved from the big ol' clasp into the watch face, and a home button has been added to aid in navigation.
Another big bonus is that the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are now IP67 rated, meaning you don't have to be scared to get them wet. Something that was a big no no with the Galaxy Gear. Obviously the biggest change however is Samsung dropping Android for Tizen, something that will be great for the development community.
The new Gear Fit is more fitness tracker than watch, and it looks damn good. The 1.84 inch curved Super AMOLED fits around most of the band and the touchscreen allows you to move around the various menus. It packs in all kinds of fun trackers for fitness and also provides notifications for social networks, phone calls, email and other apps.
So what's your favorite of the bunch? Will you be gearing up with one of the in April? Hit up the comments and let us know!
