The new generation of smart watches from Samsung was revealed shortly before theGalaxy S5, and the South Korean manufacturer definitely understand what mistakes committed a generation ago. During the MWC 2014 we could test the Gear 2 and Gear Fit, both models will arrive in stores in Brazil from April 11. See how were the trials and understand the evolution.

The big difference between this and the old generation is the fact that the clocks will no longer run the Android. The Citizen, however, retains many features of the old system, and the difference is barely noticeable for design. The performance and the touch response, however, is much higher, with features more polished.
On features, the Samsung Gear Fit can be treated as a “light” version of Gear 2.However, their goals are very different, and this is fully reflected in the design, more physical activities. He has certified IP67, assuring water resistance and dust, and is the first watch to make use of a flexible screen touchscreen, a 1.84-inch AMOLED with 432 x 128 pixels resolution.
Attached to the wrist, like dimensions and are harmonics with the curvature of the arm. From the front, he has little more than 2 cm wide, almost 6 cm tall and 1 cm thick slices, which can be disguised by the bracelet and the curved design (23.4 x 57.4 x 11.95 mm to be exact).

The result is a very light clock (only 27 g) and thin enough to hide with the sleeve of a shirt, without creating some volume. Overall, the feeling of using it is the same felt in the use of a normal clock (not luxury models, heavier).
In ordinary usage, however, one detail bothers: your display only works in “horizontal”, which induces a customary use, with the wrist back forward or backward (and like never done when we consulted the hours of a clock).
In features, the Gear Fit has everything a smartwatch clock could have fitness: gyroscope, accelerometer, pedometer, stopwatch, timer, clock, music player, sensor to monitor heart rate-that worked perfectly in all of our tests, and even an app that measures time and sleep quality.
In addition to the features aimed at monitoring the health, the Fit can make more functions with third party apps. But by default it can receive e-mail notifications, SMS, show the weather forecast and, if your smartphone to receive a call, show who made the call.
Speaking of which, the absence of a microphone and a speaker prevent him from answer or make calls as well as send commands to the phone’s Voice.
The Samsung Gear 2, on the other hand, bet on more features. Positioned by the Korean manufacturer as a luxury watch, the smartwatch clock comes with a fixed strap, but sold in three colors: black, Brown and orange.
Unlike the Fit, the format of the screen is square and with a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED display, with a resolution of 320 x 320 pixels. It has 4 GB of internal memory and goes beyond what the Fit is able to do (aside from being resistant to water and dust).
The Gear 2 brings a small camera for pictures, bracelet, more unobtrusive than the previous generation. And just as the Gear 1, it can be used to answer and make calls without touching your phone. In fact, we have not been able to test this function, but it was hard not to notice how strange it was to see executives talking to watch the halls of the fair.
In addition to the new design, the Citizen and the improved performance, he now also comes with the heart monitor. And, yet, an infrared sensor brings remote control function, functional with TVs of any brand. In fact, a tremendous clock, but the Samsung itself recognizes that not everyone thinks it’s funny in it.
