Samsung Gear 2

The Gear 2 is the latest wearable offering from Samsung and features a number of impressive improvements on its first Gear smartwatch. It features the same vivid 1.63 inch Super-AMOLED screen as its predecessor, but sports a faster 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of on-board storage, a 2 megapixel camera and a 300mAh battery, which should provide up to three days of life with normal usage. Samsung has ditched Android on this smartwatch and instead employs its own home-grown operating system called Tizen – but there’s not a lot of difference between the two from a user’s perspective. The Gear 2 is not only smarter and more practical, but thinner, lighter and prettier on the outside. It comes with a range of interchangeable watch faces and feels decidedly more comfortable on the wrist.
