Samsung Gear 2 Neo - Expert Reviews

Introduction

The word ‘smart’ was aligned with the word phone by Steve Jobs for the first time and the idea behind it was that a phone could serve multiple purposes. Apple took that idea and built on it while later on, with the arrival of Android as the mainstream software platform, other firms too latched on to the idea and took it forward. But it does beg a question as to why be the concept of "smart" was being integrated with a mobile phone. Probably because, it was one of the most used devices around among the people. But there are other devices that have been used by many as much as phones have been used including a watch. The idea to wear a multitasking device on your wrist when another similar device(s) is/are already present in your pocket, may not appeal to many.

In fact, the device may not be as aspiring to the middle class users as opposed to a gadget savvy user. But Samsung has made amazing devices in the past and already has Samsung Gear's first version in the market. Therefore, it would not be surprising if the South Korean giant is able to carve out a big revenue chunk through the same. Samsung Gear 2 Neo is a rather toned down version of Gear 2 and Gear and is also available at a much cheaper price. Samsung Gear 2 Neo has a length of 37.9mm, breadth of 58.8mm and thickness of 10mm while it is 20 percent lighter as compared to Samsung Gear 2 weighing just 55 grams. The watch does feel a little less premium as compared to Samsung Gear 2 since it is made of plastic but when it comes to a watch, the difference is not that apparent.

The review of the device would be done from various angles including one from the perspective of a watch and the other from the point of view of a smartphone or rather the features that a smartphone offers. The device would last a day on an average before it has to be recharged again via a large dock. Earlier, charging would have required the same strap to be used for the watch which meant the user could not change the straps for appearance purposes. For Samsung Gear 2 Neo, however, the charging would be done through the main face since everything has been booted on the front of the device which means, changeable straps can be used. The user gets four colors to choose from including Orange, Black, Grey and Maroon.           

The battery life was not that generous with the previous Galaxy gear watches and to solve the conundrum, Samsung Gear 2 Neo gets a Tizen-based platform providing a better usage time but by keeping the performance level identical to its predecessors. The smartwatch would be compatible to a variety of devices from Galaxy models including Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 3 Neo, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 Zoom, Galaxy S4 Active and many more.

Operating system and UI

The display size of Samsung Gear 2 Neo smartwatch is of 1.67 inches backed by a Super AMOLED display that is resistant to water and dust with IP7 certificated for both. The user can make or receive calls by the touchscreen facility on it.

Other Features

The gadget, Samsung Gear 2 Neo comes with a music player that works well with Bluetooth headsets for hearing songs for leisure or while working out by using the fitness application. 

Camera

There is no camera for clicking images or shooting videos with Samsung Gear 2 Neo smartwatch.

Connectivity

Internet access is not possible through Samsung Gear 2 Neo.

Memory

Users are allowed to store contact details or maintain an address book. A decent amount of songs can be stored as well but compared to smartphones, Samsung Gear 2 Neo does not have much of a memory bank.

Other Features

Samsung Gear 2 Neo allows the user to make or receive calls and get notified for any related information. There is a personalized fitness manager that delivers details on work out details through the built-in optical heart rate sensor. The user can customize the work out charts and exercise according to his or her needs. The device also has an IrLED sensor that lets the user use the gadget as a remote to contol TVs and set-top boxes. 

Battery

Samsung Gear 2 Neo delivers a usage time of up to 6 or 7 days if minimum applications are exploited in it. On an average, the gadget would last for up to 2 or 3 days. Charging is not done through the strap, which was the case with previous Gear devices. The system is booted from the main screen, so an external dock is used for supplying power.  

Connectivity

Samsung Gear 2 Neo would work in sync with various Galaxy devices including Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 3 Neo, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 Zoom, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy Mega 6.4 and Galaxy Mega 5.8. The device would work in sync with tablets as well including Galaxy NotePRO and Galaxy TabPRO. The gadget provides compatibility with Bluetooth as well. 

Other Features

Samsung Gear 2 Neo, when compared to Sony smartwatch 2, is a little heavier with 55 grams for the former and 48 grams for the latter. Samsung Gear 2 Neo uses a plastic strap as compared to the silicon strap of Sony smartwatch 2. The display is slightly big for Samsung Gear 2 Neo with 1.63 inches super AMOLED screen as compared to 1.6 inches Transreflective LCD display of Sony smartwatch 2. Samsung Gear 2 Neo is limited in its compatibility with other smartphones including Galaxy models after Note 2. Sony smartwatch 2 on the other hand, has compatibility with any Android device with software platform over 4.0, which makes it a lot more versatile.

Both devices lack iPhone compatibility. Samsung Gear 2 Neo supports Bluetooth 4.0 while Sony smartwatch 2 is in tune with Bluetooth 3.0. Notifications would appear on both the devices but battery life is more with Samsung Gear 2 Neo offering up to 6 days of usage as compared to 3 to 4 days of usage for Sony smartwatch 2. Phone calls can be taken through Samsung Gear 2 Neo, which is not possible with Sony smartwatch 2 while there is no voice control with the latter, whereas the former offers the same. Both the devices are water and dust resistant.

Other Features

April 7, 2014: Samsung has finally come out with Samsung Gear 2 Neo smartwatch, which is a strange move from the company since its previous version came out only 6 months ago. The watch is made of plastic instead of the metal body that its predecessor used while the device also lacks a camera which was available with Samsung Gear 2. Priced at around Rs.16,800, the smartwatch may seem to be overpriced for features that are already available with smartphones. If looked solely from the point of view of a watch, Samsung Gear 2 Neo does not seem like a bad investment. The highlights of the smartwatch are as follows:

*        1.63 inches Super AMOLED display

*        Metal body

*        Heart sensor

*        IP 67 certified dust and water resistant

*        Typical usage of 2 to 3 days, minimum usage of up to 6 days
