Samsung Gear 2 Smart Watch rated highly for ease of repair


The Samsung Gear 2 packs a lot of features in a compact smart watch. Not only it houses a 2MP camera, there’s also an integrated speaker, Infrared blaster and even a heart rate sensor. The folks at iFixit has given the new smart watch its own teardown and surprisingly it is easily dismantled with a Torx screw driver while the rest of the components can be lifted without using much tools.

iFixit has given the Gear 2 a high repairability score of 8/10 with full praises for its ease of making replacements. The only tough component is the touch screen display which is fused together with the front assembly. Unlike the original Galaxy Gear, the strap on the Gear 2 is interchangeable since most of the electrical components are on the watch itself.
