BARCELONA, Spain --If you spent any time at all hating on the snap-over charging cradle that encompassed the original Samsung Galaxy Gear, you'll be relieved to know that the new Gear family has a smaller charger that clips into each device.
Just as with last year's model, the charger is equipped with Bluetooth and NFC; a tap of a compatible Samsung smartphone or tablet preps the Gear 2 or Gear Fit's manager app for installation.
Although each of the wearable's chargers share the same design, they aren't interchangeable. Keep an eye on these little guys -- they're small enough to easily misplace.
