Samsung Gear 2 Neo review

 

The smartwatch market is an interesting one: some people we talk to can't wait to get their hands on one, while others are less impressed with the idea of getting their emails and texts delivered to their wrists. The Samsung Gear 2 Neo does a brilliant...

Beautiful display, good notifications options, looks good, easy to use, comfortable to wear, reasonable price

Lack of apps, limited compatibility, wrist flicking response a little slow, average battery life

The Samsung Gear 2 Neo does a brilliant job of what it sets out to do: acting a go-between to your Samsung phone. Despite effectively hitting the reset button and ditching Android in favour of Tizen, Samsung has resolved many of the issues with the...

Samsung Gear 2 Neo review

 

The best smartwatch on the market so far

Nice design ; Lower price ; Longer battery

Fitness element not robust ; Smartwatch category still not needed

Ratings in depth The Gear 2 Neo is an odd device - not because it's a smartwatch, and not because it arrives less than six months after its predecessor, but because it's a slimmed down version of the main Gear device.

Samsung Gear 2 Neo review

 

Is the Samsung Gear 2 Neo smartwatch actually be better than the Gear 2?

Great new design ; Fantastic display ; Brilliant battery life

Fitness apps are just OK ; Lack of third-party apps ; Samsung-only devices

Samsung Gear 2 vs Gear 2 Neo comparison: why the best Samsung smartwatch is the cheapest

 

There's no 'Galaxy' in the names of these Samsung smartwatches, because they both run on Samsung's own Tizen operating system. However, you won't notice a huge difference in the user interface. Beyond being able to customise the look, navigation is...

Samsung Gear 2 Neo review

 

Samsung's new range of wearable tech includes the Gear 2 Neo smartwatch. Read our Samsung Gear 2 Neo review to find out what this Tizen device has to offer. Read: The 8 best smartwatches 2014: List of the best wearable tech you can buy right now.

At a more reasonable price tag than the flagship model, the Samsung Gear 2 Neo is decent smartwatch with plenty of features - we don't care about the lack of a camera. However, the need for a specific Samsung companion device and a limited amount of...

Samsung Gear 2 Neo review

 

Now you can afford a Samsung smartwatch, should you actually buy one?

Lightweight but durable ; Bright, sharp, colourful screen ; Excellent battery life ; On-board music playback

Disappointing app store ; Only works with Samsung phones ; Cheaper than Gear 2 but still pricey

Better value than the Gear 2, the Neo is a truly geeky accessory for Samsung users - but it’s also far from essential

Samsung Gear 2 Neo Review

 

Samsung has moved one step nearer to producing a perfect smartwatch with the Gear 2 Neo. It's a better price than the Gear 2 – thanks to the plastic chassis and lack of snapper. Wearable tech is not quite perfect yet, but it's getting there.

+ Better price than the Gear 2 ; + Lovely, bright display ; + Ideal companion when exercising

- On the large side ; - Display didn’t always wake up when we wanted. . ; - Disappointing battery life

We reviewed the Gear 2 a few weeks ago and at the time said its £250 price tag was not justified. Samsung has made a decent start by getting rid of the camera on the Gear 2 Neo, but to really make it a success Samsung needs to focus on user experience,...
