Samsung Gear 2 Neo Review

neowin
18 June 2014
  • Excerpt: As we dive deeper into a connected world, wearables are becoming a product category that we can no longer ignore. My first foray into the world of wearables was the much loved and widely used Pebble. Although I never wrote a proper review of the device, I felt the interface was decent, the interactions were archaic, and the feature set provided by the factory software was limited.

Samsung Gear 2 Neo review: lower priced, better value, best of the Gear bunch

CNET
15 May 2014
  • Summary: The Gear 2 Neo offers the best balance of features and price among Samsung's three 2014 smartwatches, but it falls short of must-have status.
  • Pros: Samsung's Gear 2 Neo comes with a more attractive price, a feature set that's nearly identical to the more expensive Gear 2, and a lot of bells and whistles including apps, offline music playback, and heart-rate monitoring.
  • Cons: Many of the extras don't work as smoothly as you'd expect. Fitness features aren't well thought out, need polishing. Works only with Samsung phones and tablets.

Samsung Gear 2 Neo Review

Softpedia
23 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The problem was that the original Galaxy Gear wasn’t exactly the most accomplished product. Its design left a lot to be improved, it was laggy and the battery life was pretty dreadful lasting users a meager 24 hours. Add a hefty price tag and the lack of apps and it’s no wonder the Galaxy Gear paled in comparison with other offerings such as the Pebble or Pebble Steel.

Samsung Gear 2 Neo review

  • Summary: We're still waiting for the price but the Gear 2 Neo is a lovely little smartwatch from Samsung. It's got a stunning screen and handy features including an infrared transmitter and heart rate monitor. It's also lighter and thinner than the Galaxy Gear so we just hope the price is right.

Samsung Gear 2 Neo review - Less is more - Samsung simplifies the smartwatch

Mobile Choice UK
16 May 2014
  • Conclusion: When I reviewed the Gear 2 a few weeks ago I said it was trying to do too much, and nothing well enough to justify its £250 price tag. Ditching the camera was a good start for the Gear 2 Neo, but I’d like to have seen Samsung go even further and focus on the user experience, rather than trying to cram in more features than any typical buyer will actually use.
  • Pros: More affordable than the Gear 2. Bright and beautiful display. The perfect exercise companion.
  • Cons: Issues with screen not coming on when asked. Poor battery life. Too large for some.

Samsung Gear 2 Neo review

Stuff.tv
17 April 2014
  • Summary: The Gear 2 Neo is now the cheapest way to get a Samsung smartwatch on your wrist. It’s the ‘budget’ plastic version of Samsung’s Gear 2 , does 99% of what the more expensive device can do and trims in all the right places while knocking the price down by £70. It sounds like a recipe for success and in some ways it is - the Neo still isn't perfect, but it is the Gear we'd be most likely to buy.
  • Pros: Lightweight but durable, Bright, sharp, colourful screen, Excellent battery life, On-board music playback
  • Cons: Disappointing app store, Only works with Samsung phones, Cheaper than Gear 2 but still pricey
