Samsung has confirmed that its second-gen, high-end Galaxy Gear smartwatch will carry a $300 price tag. 



Fortunately, the electronics giant will also be offering the cheaper Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit, with both models priced at $200. 



AT&T will be taking pre-orders for all three devices on March 21st, with shipments kicking off in early April. 



According to Liliputing's Brad Linder, both the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo feature 1.6 inch, 320 x 320 pixel displays, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, Bluetooth and IR ports.

In addition, 

the devices are equipped with sensors capable of tracking steps, sleep patterns and heart rate.

There is also a camera, albeit only for the higher-end Gear 2. 

Meanwhile, the Gear Fit boasts a 1.84 inch curved 432 x 128 pixel display, activity-tracking sensors and is fully capable of displaying incoming calls and other notifications from a paired smartphone via Bluetooth.



All of the smartwatches run software based on open source Tizen Linux, with Samsung releasing an SDK targeted at mobile devs interested in creating Android apps to communicate with the wearable devices.
