Samsung Gear 2 Neo

 

The Samsung Gear 2 Neo smartwatch ditches the camera for a less expensive price tag, making it a better buy than the Gear 2.

Less expensive than the Gear 2. Beautiful display. Doubles as an activity tracker. Heart rate monitor. Works with standard watchbands.

Compatible with Samsung devices only. Lacks apps.

Differences and Conclusion The Neo has the same general measurements as the Gear 2, at 1.49 by 2.31 by 0.39 inches (HWD), but the lack of a camera makes it even lighter, at 1.94 ounces (not counting the adjustable strap). The Neo comes in three...

Samsung Gear 2 Neo review

 

Samsung has three smartwatches in its early-2014 lineup. How many of them are good, and which one should you buy? It's not easy making a decision when most people aren't even sure if they want a smartwatch -- any smartwatch -- in the first place. And...

Samsung's Gear 2 Neo comes with a more attractive price, a feature set that's nearly identical to the more expensive Gear 2, and a lot of bells and whistles including apps, offline music playback, and heart-rate monitoring.

Many of the extras don't work as smoothly as you'd expect. Fitness features aren't well thought out, need polishing. Works only with Samsung phones and tablets.

The Gear 2 Neo offers the best balance of features and price among Samsung's three 2014 smartwatches, but it falls short of must-have status.

Samsung Gear 2 Neo Black

 

But if you're dead-set on getting one and want one made by Samsung, know this: there's the Gear Fit ($200 in the US, £170 in the UK, AU$250 in Australia), the Gear 2 ($300 in the US, £250 in the UK, AU$350 in Australia), and the Gear 2 Neo (priced...

Samsung Gear 2 Neo and Fit review: Improved wearable tech with sleek designs

 

Samsung greatly improved upon their Galaxy Gear with these two new wearable products. However, sleek designs and solid functionality still doesn't mean overwhelming popularity for this evolving area of the mobile world.

Thin and light ; Good keyboard ; Long battery life

Expensive ; Cannot lift the unit while iPad Air is in the slot

Review: Samsung Gear 2 Neo smartwatch

 

We reviewed Samsung's Gear 2 smartwatch when it launched in April, but we skipped its sibling, the Gear 2 Neo. With only minor differences between the two, we figured the one review could speak for both watches. Well, Samsung's smartwatch platform has...

Samsung Gear 2 Neo Review

 

The Gear 2 Neo is an economy version of the Gear 2 that lacks a camera and premium materials. Can this entry level smart watch convince users to adopt wearables into their lives?

While the Gear Neo 2 is far from perfect, it exceeds my expectations of a smart watch. The screen is bright, vibrant, responsive, and the touch screen functions like an extension of my mobile phone. While I do wish everything was integrated a bit...

Samsung Gear 2 Neo review

 

Samsung's Gear 2 Neo smartwatch is a less-expensive variant of the Gear 2, making up for its plastic construction and lack of camera with better wearability.

Samsung Gear 2 Neo Review

 

The problem was that the original Galaxy Gear wasn't exactly the most accomplished product. Its design left a lot to be improved, it was laggy and the battery life was pretty dreadful lasting users a meager 24 hours. Add a hefty price tag and the lack...
