Samsung Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo Specs

To begin with both these smartwatches are simply aimed at those geeks who want a feature rich device on their wrists. That’s why the smartwatch operating system and the features are mostly same as the predecessor Galaxy gear.

But there are some design modifications, particularly for those who want to sport a new look very now and then.

Spec-wsie, both the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo sport a 1.63 inch Super AMOLED 320×320 pixel display powered by 1GHz dual-core CPU with 512MB of RAM. The internal storage is 4 GB and you can separately store songs on your smart watch too.

The 2 MP camera may appear too low to many buyers, but as said the Samsung smart watch (Gear 2) is more than just a camera, it’s a bundle of features for those who want to actively use it.

The welcome change is: in Gear 2, the camera is now part of the main watch body instead of watch strap. Allowing the user to change the 22mm watch strap whenever he/she like to.

The 4 screws giving the previous predecessor Galaxy Gear are gone too.

Gear 2 Neo does not have a camera, a key difference between the two watches.

Samsung Gear 2 is Dust and Water Resistant

Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are IP67 dust and water resistant certified.

iR Blaster and Heart Rate Monitor for Health or Adventure or Sports conscious

It’s logical to have a heart beats monitor in a smart watch. That’s why Samsung has also included an iR blaster and Heart rate sensor this time, a common feature in similar offerings.

Samsung Gear 2 Battery Size

The battery capacity is 300 mAh, which Samsung claims lasts for 3 to 6 days.
