Headline A truly geeky accessory for Samsung users but far from essential

Having said all that about the looks, we’d still take the Neo over the Gear 2. Losing the camera really isn’t a loss at all, and while the Neo is less premium, the Gear 2 isn’t that gorgeous to begin with.

£180 is still a load to spend on an accessory for a Galaxy phone, though, and next to the more open, more apptastic Pebble it looks like pretty poor value.

Perhaps the bigger problem, though, is Android Wear: Google Now-powered smartwatches are coming from LG, Motorola and more, and they certainly look and sound to be a step-up from the current smartwatch crowd. If you must geek out right now, the Neo is the Gear we’d get. But we’ll be waiting for Wear.
