After the launch of the first Galaxy Gear in October last year and some noticeable criticisms about the watch`s poor battery life or bulk and chunky design, the Korean smartphone manufacturer is preparing to roll out the second generation of Galaxy Gear, and should be announced somewhere in late March, early April, along with its flagship Galaxy S5. Critics seemed to work just fine for Samsung, as they promise to come with a redefined watch. As for the start, the new watch is rumored to become compatible with even more Android devices, than its own lineup of Galaxy smartphones and tablets.
Reports say that the upcoming Gear will sport features like a GPS chip, which is a smart move from Samsung, as it will open-up a new series of other intelligent applications. Apart from that, Gear users expect a lot more from its battery, as 25 hours aren’t enough. We might expect Samsung to have done its lessons with the previous version and increase the battery`s life up to 3 days without charging.
What concerns the Gear 2`s design, the watch will come with slimmer features, as an executive at Samsung claims, with the new watch “boasting an all-new appearance”, to counteract those criticizing the “bulky” design of the previous version.
According to our source, the Galaxy Gear 2 will be expected to be revolutionary in terms of hardware and software. As for the price, we might be looking at somewhere around £300, even more. It`d better worth the price.
As I said earlier in the article, the Gear 2 might be launch with its flagship Samsung Galaxy S5, perhaps a wonderful opportunity for the company to reveal and test the watch on the S5. At least that is what the vice-president Lee Young Hee stated in an interview with Bloomberg, confirming that the Gear 2 would be launch with the most-anticipating smartphone of the year.
