Many people were raving about Samsung’s first smartwatch release known as Galaxy Gear late last year. Well it turns out Samsung is ready to release a new form of smartwatches known as Gear 2, introduced on Sunday.
I personally am not a big fan of the whole smartwatch craze but that doesn’t stop me from inquiring about it. An interesting fact that I came across pertaining to the new line of Samsung’s smartwatches is that it will not operate on Googles Mobile System but instead Samsung’s newly preferred mobile software and operating system known as Tizen. This is surprising to me seeing as Google and Samsung have always teamed up and seemed so dependent on one another.
The change of operating system has caused a buzz but the new specs and improvements to Gear 2 has managed to do so as well. For one, the new watches will have a longer battery life span than the Galaxy Gear. Instead of lasting one day, it said to last 2-3 days. The watch’s camera contain better pixelation and major improvements added to the health and fitness tracker. You’ll be able to listen to music and view notifications as well as enjoy other improved applications. It is said the Gear 2 will also be able to connect with many Galaxy devices unlike Samsungs first released Galaxy Gear which only connected to the Galaxy Note 3.
While there is no official release date or price point, Samsung is set to release their new line of watches around the world in April. Are you guys into smartwatches? Share your thoughts?
