Samsung Announces Price For New Gear Line – Do We Still Care?
At MWC this year, Samsung not only unveiled the highly anticipate Galaxy S5, but also three new additions to the Gear lineup. The Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and especially the Gear Fit caught our attention from their impressive design. Samsung even did something we didn’t expect by dropping Android on these devices and instead using Tizen. However, now that Google has unveiled Android Wear along with Motorola showing off the Moto 360, do we still care about these smartwatches?
Samsung likely announced the pricing to combat the news surrounding the announcement of Android Wear so that their smartwatches would remain relevant. Prices were finally announced and they follow below.
- Samsung Gear 2 – $295
- Samsung Gear Fit – $197
- Samsung Gear 2 Neo – Unannounced
Strangely Samsung did leave out the price for the Gear 2 Neo but that watch is expected to be at the same price point as the Gear Fit.
Does Samsung’s offering still interest you? Or has Android Wear captured your attention? Let us know in the comments!
