Dubai, UAE – April 2, 2014 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today introduced the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo designed to take the freedom, convenience and style of wearable technology to the next level. The Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo offer consumers enhanced connectivity and a completely integrated approach for the most personal wearable experience.
“Samsung continues to break new ground in the wearables market by creating devices that take consumer connectivity to new heights, by offering them new exciting ways to integrate technology into their lives” said Mr. Hayssam Yassine, Head of Telecommunications Group at Samsung Gulf Electronics. “The Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo deliver everything that consumers love about wearables. Advanced smart features and a dense app ecosystem will ensure our consumers don’t miss a beat.”
Samsung achieved a significant improvement as a leading smart-wearable provider with the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. Both devices offer a lightweight design with premium finishes that reflect modern trends.
The Gear 2 is a sleek and smart companion. With its camera built into the main body, consumers have the freedom to coordinate their outfits with interchangeable modern and sophisticated strap options, and still take photos on the go. The trendy color options include Charcoal Black, Gold Brown and Wild Orange for Gear 2 and Charcoal Black, Mocha Grey and Wild Orange for the Gear 2 Neo. The home screen background, clock face and font are also customizable to reflect personal taste.
The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are essential devices that allow users to accept or ignore incoming calls and messages, and provide instant notification options based on a user’s activity and habits.
Both devices act as extensions of customers’ daily lives, offering them more control of their experiences with standalone features, such as controlling electronic products, such as TV settop boxes via the WatchON Remote application in their own homes. The addition of a standalone music player with a Bluetooth headset means people can leave their smartphones at home and still enjoy their music on the go.
Both devices also offer personal fitness coaching in real-time, allowing users to develop a customizable fitness routine, and monitor their heart rates in order to improve their overall well-being.
Finally, the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo let users connect to a wide variety of Samsung devices and access an enriched application ecosystem as the first wearable powered by the Tizen based wearable platform.
Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are compatible with more than dozens of Samsung Galaxy smartphones, and will be available across leading retail outlets in UAE for AED 1,199 and AED 799, respectively.
