    Besides the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5, the other cool thing about today for Samsung fans is the launch of their Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and the Gear Fit smartwatch/wearable devices. Just as the Galaxy S5 is now available in 125 countries, so too is are these devices. The Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo both use Samsung's own Tizen OS, while the Gear Fit uses a different proprietary OS. The Gear 2 will sell for $299 retail while the other two devices will sell for $199.

    The specs for the Gear 2 are as follows:

    • 1.63-inch 320 x 320 AMOLED display
    • 1GHz dual-core processor
    • 512MB of RAM
    • 4GB of internal storage
    • 2 megapixel camera
    • Pedometer, heart rate sensor, sleep cycle monitor and more
    • Bluetooth 4.0 LE
    • irLED
    • Accelerometer and gyroscope
    • 300mAh battery (Samsung claims 2-3 days of average usage)
    The main difference between the Gear 2 and the Neo version is a missing camera on the Neo. The Gear Fit is just a fitness tracker and its hardware specs are much more subdued.

    Here's another poll...

    Which one of these devices do you plan on purchasing?

    The Gear 2
    The Gear 2 Neo
    The Gear Fit
    None of the above

    Available today?...that's what YOU say! I just got off the phone with every tech store in Illinois, ALL phone carriers AND even called Samsung directly AND NOBODY HAS THE GEAR 2 IN STOCK TODAY!!!!!!......NOBODY!!!

    Which is a damn shame because I am more than willing to buy it IF it really existed and was released today as everyone is saying. But basically, this device still doesn't exist if absolutely NO ONE has it on it's "release date."

    Some have even mentioned buying it online (which I am against doing because I like to see/feel products before dropping $300 on one), but even online EVERY STORE SHOWS IT AS OUT OF STOCK "ON IT'S RELEASE DATE." This is really ridiculous when even Samsung can't tell me where I can buy the device that they made AND supposedly released today.

    I guess they don't want my money today...

    I was looking at all the new gear 2 models at Verizon on r 22 green brook nj and they are for sale. I'm waiting for a discount. Stupid to jump in to be the first and pay full price

    I'm excited to check out the fit- maybe I've falling victim to Samsung hype.

    Note 3 ~ 5s

    You are so right. I have found only black neo and gear 2 at a local AT&T store, but Best Buy which has a major section for Samsung products has never had any you could buy. I check in all of the time including on "release date" and they have never had a single one. They say things like, "It is really popular and we can't keep them on the shelves" (lie, since they have not ever had them on their shelves). Also, you can barely order them and I prefer buying in the store anyway. But, if you DO order, it can only be limited colors. Why call it a release if it is not really available?
