Samsung today announced its latest flagship, the Galaxy S5, in India, and as expected, the company also provided details on its new smartwatches and fitness tracker. The Gear 2 will be priced at Rs. 21,900, while the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit will go for Rs. 15,900 – the Gear 2 pricing is similar to that of the original Galaxy Gear, which could be a problem for sales in a price-sensitive market like India where the same price can fetch pretty good mid-range phones. All three wearables will be available for purchase in the country on April 11, the same day as the Galaxy S5.

The Gear 2 improves on almost every aspect of the Galaxy Gear and sports quite a few new features. The watch is water-resistant thanks to IP67 certification, comes with an inbuilt heart rate sensor and pedometer, has interchangeable straps (black, brown and orange color options) and now allows music playback from the watch itself. It runs on Samsung’s Tizen OS instead of Android, and has a 1.63-inch 320×320 Super AMOLED display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 2-megapixel camera with 720p video recording, 4GB of internal storage, and a 3,000 mAh battery that offers up to 3 days of battery life with moderate usage.

The Gear 2 Neo is similar to the Gear 2, but doesn’t have a camera and is made of plastic, which allows for the lower price tag. Meanwhile, the Gear Fit is a fitness tracker with a beautiful curved OLED display, inbuilt pedometer and heart rate sensor for functions such as counting steps, calories, and heart rate, and also comes with interchangeable straps like the Gear 2. Battery life is touted at 3-4 days with moderate usage, and like the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, the Gear Fit will be compatible with more than 20 Samsung smartphones and tablets upon launch.

Check out our previews of the Gear 2 and Gear Fit to find out if they’re worth your time and money.
