SAMSUNG GEAR 2 just gets better !!
Almost six months after launching its Android-based Galaxy Gear smartwatch, Samsung is ready to start flooding the market with more smartwatch models that are an extension of the Gear family.
Samsung has unveiled the samsung Gear 2 and samsung Gear 2 Neo, two new smartwatch models that resemble the Galaxy Gear – confirming recent leaks – although they’re very different from the original smartwatch.
For starters, the new samsung Gears do not run Android. Instead, they have Samsung’s Tizen OS on board. That also means they have been removed from the Galaxy line of products, which all run Android. Furthermore, instead of announcing a single new smartwatch model, Samsung seems to be getting ready to address various price points by releasing both a Gear 2 and a Gear 2 Neo model, with the latter supposedly being the more affordable version.
