The Samsung Gear 2 is having a 1.63-inch multi-touch Super AMOLED capacitive touch display and it is quite nice to see tha the touch sensitivity of this device is quite nice.

In the image above, you can see that the charging dock is attached to the Samsung Gear 2 and we found it quite simple to use. On the other hand, the charging dock on it’s predecessor was a complete mess. it was big, clumsy and a little annoying.This device is also there to track your heart beat as in this device the heart rate sensor is present too. On the top of this device there is a 2-Megapixel camera which is used for both shooting videos and capturing images. Well, you should not expect any great shakes from this camera, but mind you, it is quite useful.The thing is that most people do not know about a smartwatch. They see it and without knowing about it reject this product. So, we have to keep in mind that the future gadgets are always more useful and better than the old ones. If we have accepted smartphones from the land-lines we should also accept the tech wearable. So, what is a smartwatch? What it can do?

There is an application present in it which allows you to control TVs. This device has got a camera and thus, you do not need to take your phone out, just capture with the smartwatch camera.The smartwatch allows you to take calls and there are inbuilt speakers and thus, you can listen to the person on the other side and they can also hear you. How does this work? If you ask this, the answer is Bluetooth. The Gear 2 is always connected to your smartphone or tablet as there is no SIM card slot. Also, the Samsung Gear 2 is IP67 certified which means it is dust and water resistant.This is not the end. You can also check notifications and do day to day exercise with the help of this smartwatch. Well, the company has gone very prone to health as they have introduced the heart rate senor in Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Fit as well. So, for next we will do unboxing of the Samsung Gear Fit.
