The Best of Mobile World Congress 2014: New Samsung Gear Smartwatches and Gear Fit

mobile-world-congress-2014Wearables were a big deal at MWC 2014, and Samsung led the charge with a revision to last year’s disappointing Galaxy Gear.

The replacement is not one, but two smartwatches, the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. Both improve on the Galaxy Gear’s horrid battery life, and the Gear 2 Neo loses the camera for a sleeker look (and lower price tag). Samsung also kicked Android out of its smartwatch camp, choosing to go instead with its own Tizen operating system.

In addition, Samsung introduced the Gear Fit, its entry into the red-hot fitness band category.
