The Samsung Gear 2 is the latest, greatest smartwatch from the mobile giant. Unlike its predecessor, the Gear 2 doesn't run on Android, but instead uses Samsung's own Tizen software, but there are a bunch of other changes too that make it a more exciting prospect than the original model

Samsung hasn't yet announced how much the Gear 2 will cost or indeed where it will be on sale, but keep it CNET for all the latest news.

The front of the watch now features a physical home button, rather than making you use the rather clunky gestures from the first Galaxy Gear.

A heart rate monitor is underneath the watch. It doesn't check pressure, it uses special lights to actually 'see' the blood flowing through your veins. Creepy.

The Gear 2 has a little brother, the Gear 2 Neo. It's much the same but it doesn't have a camera.

Both models have infra-red blasters on the top to control your TV. We've basically come full circle back to those awesome Casio watch from the 90s that could also control your TV. Technology, eh?

Both Gear 2s have physical home buttons.
