The Samsung Gear 2 , Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit are up for pre-order on Amazon, giving fans of Samsung's wrist-centric gadgets the chance to splash the cash ahead of the new devices' debut.

Tech site Androidcentral spied the listings, which include a range of colour choices. The South Korean tech giant's latest wearable tech isn't exactly cheap, however -- the Gear 2 will set you back $299, while the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit will both set you back a cool $199. Amazon lists all three with a release date of 11 April.

The Gear 2 is a slimmed-down sequel with a higher-resolution camera, while the Gear 2 Neo is a lighter model with no camera. The Gear Fit meanwhile is a fitness-focused gadget with an intriguing curved Super AMOLED display.

The three gadgets were supposed to go on sale at the same time as the Galaxy S5 smartphone, but some retailers have jumped the gun, selling the heart-rate-scanning handset early. Meanwhile the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit have already popped up on sale in the UK.
