At MWC in Barcelona, Spain, Samsung announces its second-generation Gear 2 smartwatch. The new device features the company's home-brewed Tizen OS, an integrated heart rate monitor, and water- and dust-resistant tech.

The Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo are chic. Personal devices that help consumers managed their lives using a wider range of features. Ladies and gentlemen, the Samsung Kaia Fit. The new Gear Fit has an iconic design for consumers who are focused being stylish on the go. It is equipped with curved screen that fits perfectly on your wrist. The Gear FIT will be an ideal method to check your heart rate when you are exercising. It conveys messages, SNS updates, missed calls and a lot from your phone. We operate in a highly competitive fast-moving marketplace. We continue to respond and evolve. We [unk] open, flexible, and cooperative mobile industry and user community. The Galaxy S5 and new Gear products are the result of that philosophy. -The strap comes centered in three colors: black, brown and orange, and designer versions are also available. And did not notice this? So, we added a home button like the ones that we have on our smartphones. So whatever app you're using, you can always return to the home menu just by pressing this button and you don't have to flick all the way back. And the entire UX is an evolution over the original with the freedom to choose from different themes and application settings. We have more watch face options and you can set an image or different color the background and you can even change the font. And with instant notifications, you get the information you need. You get calls, messages, schedules and application alerts, plus you get your heart rate. And working out while listening to music, that's a must. But finding a place to put your phone whether it's your pocket or strap to your arm, or inside that cup holder on the treadmill, that's a pain. But with 4 gigabytes of memory, the Gear 2 is also a standalone music player so you just transfer your playlist on to your Gear 2, you leave your phone behind and you got to free your workout. It's a good stuff. The second is extended ecosystem. So, Gear 2 is developed as part of our long-term vision for an ecosystem of the devices to enhance the lives of our users. The Gear 2 can independently connect to and control your television you'll watch on remote because it has its own infrared LED. There are also many more apps designed for the Gear series. They focused on health and fitness, lifestyle, social, commerce and entertainment. Now, pay full one in all-in-one wearable like Gear 2. But sometimes they need an even lighter option, functional like the Gear, portable like a fitness band, and stylish. Take a look at the perfect fit. This is the world's first curved Super AMOLED touchscreen display on a wearable device. It's definitely a beautiful look born from amazing technology. Built for lightweight flexibility, the Gear Fit weighs in at 27 g and with the same freedom of self-expression that comes with the Gear 2, you can swap out the straps. So, ultimately, you got to cater to your taste and standard colors come in black, gray, and orange, plus designer choices as well. The straps are also hypoallergenic. And what elevates the Gear Fit into a whole new category is that you can stay up-to-date with instant notifications on your Gear Fit as well.
