The Gear 2 is the Samsung smartwatch with all the bells and whistles. Through Bluetooth, the watch can show notifications about texts and emails from your mobile device, as well as send and receive calls. It also includes fitness-tracking features, such as a pedometer, a heart-rate monitor and an app to track workouts. You can download additional apps to the Gear 2, and the device even comes with a built-in camera.
