Samsung set to announce Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Band at MWC

The Korean Herald seems to be confirming our assumptions. A source for the outlet is saying that Samsung is preparing the Galaxy Gear 2 and "it's a high possibility" that the device will be unveiled at MWC in February. There isn't a lot of information to be had about the Gear 2, but it is expected to feature a flexible display. The source is also saying that Samsung is getting ready to announce the Galaxy Band, which will be a health and fitness tracker in the vein of FitBit or Nike FuelBand.A new report from
No word on when the devices will be released, but Lee Seung-woo, an analyst at IBK Securities, is confident that the device will be "released early next year". Our bet is that when we get a release date for the Galaxy S5, we'll get the release date for the Gear 2 as well.

Says someone who's never actually used one. I've never used one myself, but everyone I know (in real life, not on some internet forum where people constantly make things up) that has one says they love it or it eventually grew up them.

what worse can Sammy do with the gear 2? is not like the gear 1 was horrible looking. The gear in real life is beautiful and it uses premium materials too. the gear 2 will upgrade in all areas of the current model so i don't see any messing up or screwing up.

Always room for improvement with every device, which is the best part about technology. Look at the most basic of all: the lightbulb. As Samsung continues to expand it's horizons with great improvement to all products, I hope they put in a lot of effort to their watches. Yes, the other day I was complaining about the bulky design, but like I said, it will OBVIOUSLY become better every itteration. All I can say is, I can't wait.

In typical Android fashion: Galaxy Gear 2 announced before the first one is even compatible for 5 devices. Now there is going to be firmware and compatibility issues flying around all over the place. Now sure why the world accepted such a rubbish bit of business architecture.

Hopefully this Samsung smartwatch will be a huge improvement over the Galaxy Gear, as it was a rushed product that managed to disappoint most customers smartwatchforiphone.com/2013/12/31/samsung-galaxy-gear-2-galaxy-and-band-rumors/
