Once upon a time, smartwatches were only for superspies and TV heroes.
Despite all the tech underneath, the Gear 2's only visible gadget is its 2-megapixel camera, nicely nested into the brushed metal surface.
Samsung's 1st-gen Galaxy Gear housed its camera in the wristband—a less-than-ideal setup that made for a less-than-replaceable band. This new location is a good sign.
The main issue we see with this design is that having a camera constantly facing away from your body makes selfies nearly impossible.
Is this a fatal flaw of the Gear 2? It's a bold strategy, Samsung; we'll see if it pays off for 'em.
