Samsung Electronics has shown off the second generation of its smart watches the Gear 2 and a new Gear 2 Neo model.
The main change is that the camera is fitted to the main body of the watch instead of the strap. The home screen background, clock face and font are also customizable to reflect the users personal taste.
Otherwise there seems to be little different with the new smart watches.
"With the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, we have enhanced everything consumers love about the Gear to offer unparalleled smart freedom in their everyday life." said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics in a statement.
The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are essential companion devices, allow users to accept or ignore incoming calls and messages, and providing instant notification options based on a user's activity and habits.
Both devices also offer personal fitness coaching in real time, allowing users to develop a customizable fitness routine and monitor their heart rate in order to improve their overall well-being.
Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo will be available around the world starting from April.
