    now that galaxy gear can be updated to tizen, is there any reason to get the more expensive gear neo other than questionable aesthetics improvements and the home button?

    Galaxy Gear has a camera whereas the Gear Neo doesn't. Gear Neo has an IR blaster whereas the Galaxy Gear doesnt. "Questionable aesthetics improvements" is subjective but besides the visible screws, be aware that the Galaxy Gear has a metal body and the Gear 2 Neo has a strap colored plastic body. I personally much prefer the metal body.

    In addition to the differences noted by itinj6, Gear 2 Neo has:
    • Heart rate sensor
    • Sleep tracker
    • 55g weight(vs 74g on GG)
    • Swappable band
    • 1GHz dual core processor (vs 800MHz single core on GG)

    Battery is slightly smaller, but was rated to last longer. But that was before the GG ran Tizen as well.
