Users wear Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Gear 2 Neo on their wrist. The devices are different from existing wearables because of the location where they are worn and the design concept they are built on. Users can make and receive calls but check the schedule, weather and alarm. They also can use the various notification functions, including that of health and SNS. Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Gear 2 Neo were made with the aim of setting hands free and to change how smartphones are used in the existing market.

Evaluation

As well as functioning as a smart watch, with the original OS mounted it also functions as a mobile phone, making this product new and original. Its band is designed to be removed easily, and the level of the overall design is also high.
