Samsung Gear 2 Neo

Alongside its Galaxy S5 pre-order news today, Sprint has revealed that it'll stock Samsung's new Tizen-powered wearables from the same date, April 11. Sprint's pricing for all three devices closely match what we've seen from other carriers — the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit are $199.99, while the camera-equipped Gear 2 costs $299.99.

Sprint will sell the Gear 2 in Charcoal Black and Gold Brown, the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit in Charcoal Black. And the carrier will have optional Wild Orange and Mocha Grey straps available for the Gear Fit.

Earlier this morning AT&T opened up pre-order pages for the new Gear devices, with prices around the same levels.

They both look like toys compared to the moto 360. Can't wait to see what happens when that bombshell hits the stores this summer.

I see a price drop coming. But then again there are a lot of people that used to own iPhones, that are definitely eyeing the GS5/G2N.

Did I sign into to Tizen Central? I'll keep my original Android-based GG. Also, I only bought the damned thing three months ago, and I'm not in the habit of buying watches, smart or otherwise, every three freaking months.

I'm interested in the Neo. But I'm also looking forward to the 360 as well. Might as well get both! I have a feeling that the 360 will be in the 300 dollar range though, it looks too stylish not to be IMHO.

I dunno about the new Gear watches. A couple of weeks ago, I was already set to pre-order/buy one of them once it was available. But now, it doesn't really make sense to me to go with a non-Android Wear smartwatch. Android Wear will get way more support (ie. more apps, quicker updates/bug fixes, and support for all devices with Jelly Bean or higher).

I'm hoping Google will reveal an Android Wear (Nexus) smartwatch of their own soon. Perhaps they will at this year's Google I/O.

The only one that's worth noting is the gear fit. The G2 is ugly overall. The $100 price difference between the Neo gets you a metal build not just the camera. Since everyone wants metal this and metal that why complain about the price?

They are complaining about it because it's a Samsung device. If it was Google then it would be okay. ......

I was thinking about the gear 2 but now that it's the moto 360 change of plans. Hopefully the price is cheaper than the Samsung offerings. Plus Google now is a plus also.

I'm not saying that Samsung is by any means the best, but they did all of their own R&D for the software and design
Google made the software and Motorola and LG are making the device so it's understandable that Samsung is charging more. At the sane time the only good one is the great fit. I have used all 3 of them and the Neo is okay but the gear 2 is nothing special. I am getting amoto 360 and a gear fit because they serve two different purposes. Hopefully Samsung will focus more on the fit instead.
