Ip67, changable bracelet, hrm. I also read that will have dedicated mp3 player with output over Bluetooth so that's mean that will have a simple acces to internal memory to copy files from/to the warch. Maybe tiezen will be the challenge here and the compatibility with older devices. If original gear was announced with at least 1 day of battery and we get often 2 or 3 days maybe gear 2 will last at least 3 days on a charge. This will be good.

+ 2-3x better batterylife (with a lower capacity battery). What's going on here?? Tizen being efficient than android, or something else?
+ Can work as a standalone music player
+ Better fitness options like Heart Rate sensor.
+ More powerful SOC.
+ IrLED (WatchON)
+ Gear 2 Neo is much lighter compared to gear. Also no camera in Neo (good for those who don't want to spend on cam)
+ Same old screen, I keep this as positive because I had a feeling they would switch to those Mirasol or other 'bad' displays just to conserve battery.
+ Much better cam position.
+ IP67

I think it's an improvement overall. If they've increased video recording time then I don't care if it's tizen. It's really the only reason I use custom rom. I have a feeling I'm going to upgrade just for the water resistant and being able to change bands. From the pictures it looks like any watch straps can be used. I still can't tell if the speaker is on the strap. I'm hoping not.

I read somewhere that it has interchangable straps.

Also, there's no speaker on the strap.

It is water resistant, not water proof.

I was looking at similar pics and I didn't see it but I can't tell where on the watch the speaker is.

The speaker is on the watch itself. If you look at the orange one you cannot miss it.

I assume it's next to the camera? I still can't spot it clearly. But hopefully Fomey can hack the ish out of it. Or maybe port tizen on the current galaxy gear so we can have longer battery life.
