Samsung official hands-on with the Gear 2 and Gear Fit

If our own hands-on with the upcoming Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit wasn't enough to satisfy you, Samsung has done some video work of their own as well. They've posted up an official hands-on with the Gear 2 and Gear Fit, giving a near ten-minute look at the goods. There's nothing terribly new buried within, but we do get a good overview of the features and specs across all the devices.

The video shows off some of the notifications and other features such as answering a call or replying to a text message. There's a great look at the heart-rate sensor and activity features as well. 

We're getting excited to go all out with the Gear devices, so thankfully just a few more weeks and we can do just that. Stay tuned!

Samsung official hands-on with the Gear 2 and Gear Fit


I've seen this video and want to know if I can answer phone calls on the Gear Fit via voice or is it just text notification/responses. Frankly I want firesale prices on the original Gear watch to install/test NullROM on it. Telus in Canada has it for $200 (only the black colour is available) but I want to see how low the OG Gear price can go.

I believe the original is going to get a Tizen update and remain compatible with all the latest apps, so probably not going to be dirt-cheap any time soon. I suspect it will hover around $175.

If the OG Gear does in fact get a Tizen update - I wonder if that will improve the battery life? We shall see.

Excellent Video, great smartwatch. Too bad I can't use it with my iOS device. Samsung users are lucky to be able to buy one soon

I was never bothered for the gear but I'm coming round!!

Shame I don't have a Samsung phone.....

Gear Fit is looking as good as ever! But in this video, I've grown to like the Gear 2 as well. It has the few extra nifty features the Fit doesn't have, like the ability to take calls, using the virtual assistant (which I rarely use) and the infrared sensor which I don't much find to use as well. But ironically, what is the Fit's best feature, the fashionable design, is actually what people's complain with it is: the orientation (like reading a message on a band which is going to be awkward). Still, I think I will pick either one of these up.

I'm going to get the Gear Neo. I don't really need to be able to talk on my watch.

Do notifications and emails sync between your phone and the watch? If I delete an email on the watch, will it also delete it on the phone/server?
