Samsung tries again with Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches
Samsung has shown off the Gear 2, its second attempt at releasing a smartwatch that has mass appeal with consumers.
The company demonstrated the device along side another new model, the lighter Gear 2 Neo.
Both have a heart rate sensor, a pedometer and various tools to measure exercise, sleep and stress levels.
The watches run on Tizen OS, a fledgling mobile operating system, rather than Google's Android software.
The move is being seen as part of a wider strategy from Samsung to move away from Google's platform and to lessen its reliance on the search giant's product.
