With the MWC officially starting from tomorrow, Samsung has already announced some new wearable devices. The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are the latest wearable smartwatches which surprisingly run on Samsung’s home brewed Tizen OS instead of Android that we saw on the original Galaxy Gear.  And yes, if you noticed, the new devices do not have the name 'Galaxy,' clearly stating the fact that Android is a miss.

Coming to specifications, the new wearable devices come with 1.63 inch Super AMOLED displays, 1.0GHz dual-core processors, 512MB RAM, 4GB storage , 2MP camera (not available on the Gear 2 Neo) heart rate sensors, pedometers, music players, Bluetooth, IR blaster, IP67 Certified Dust and Water Resistant, and a 300mAh battery which is said to last almost 2-3 days. Both of the devices come with changeable strap options in a variety of colours including Charcoal Black, Gold Brown, and Wild Orange, while the Gear 2 Neo will be available in Charcoal Black, Mocha Grey, and Wild Orange.
