Samsung Gear 2 review: much improved, but that doesn't mean you should buy it

The Gear 2 is generally a solid improvement over the original, with a nicer design and longer battery life. Even so, it doesn't perform well enough to fully justify the $300 asking price.

Pros
  • Longer battery life
  • New heart rate monitor and IR blaster
  • Improved design
Cons
  • Very few apps
  • Some software features feel superficial
