Samsung’s New Galaxy Gears Are Now Available To Pre-Order On Amazon
Samsung’s new lineup of Galaxy Gear smartwatches is now available to pre-order from Amazon. All three devices launch on Friday, April 11 in the U.S., and Amazon will deliver them to your door at no extra cost.
The Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo are very similar; both have 1.63-inch Super AMOLED displays, 1GHz dual-core processors, 300mAh batteries, and infrared blasters. They’re also waterproof with IP67 certification. The only difference between the two is the Gear 2 has a 2-megapixel camera, while the Gear 2 Neo doesn’t.
The Gear Fit, as its name suggests, is more of a fitness band than a smartwatch. It will tell you the time and deliver notifications to your wrist, but it won’t allow you to make and receive phone calls, and it doesn’t have S Voice or an infrared blaster built-in.
All three devices will monitor your sleep, track your fitness, and read your heart rate — but of course, the Gear Fit’s size makes it more suitable for working out.
If you’re planning to pick up a Galaxy S5 as well, then it may be better to get your new Galaxy Gear from a carrier. Many are offering discounts when you buy the smartphone and watch together.
