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.

As previously confirmed by Samsung, pricing starts at $199 for the Galaxy Gear 2 Neo and the Galaxy Gear Fit, while the Galaxy Gear 2 is $299.

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.
