The $179 Gear 2 is available in 3 colors and 2 sizes and it has a heart rate monitor, GPS, step counter, stair counter, sleep monitor and 4 gigs of internal storage for music and apps. It runs Samsung’s Tizen OS and it works with any Android phone running OS 4.4 KitKat or newer. It works in conjunction with the Gear2 and S Health apps on the phone. It’s IP68 water resistant, and it has a vibrate motor, Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi. The AMOLED 1.5” display is colorful and bright enough for outdoor use.
