Wearable tech just got a lot cooler with the April 2014 launch of the new Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smart watches. These watches aren’t just sleeker and lighter than the original versions, they also come with several sweet new features. Besides enabling you to place calls and text, you can now rock out to your entire digital music collection like a boss.
That’s because the watches feature a new MyMusicCloud app, so you can access all your music from our cloud. Jam to Jack White, bliss out to Passenger, spin to Beyonce or whomever you love via your Samsung Gear 2 and a Bluetooth headset.
So how does it work? If you’re a MyMusicCloud user, you already know you can store all your music for free in our cloud and play it on any lap or desktop, tablet, and smartphone regardless of brand.
Now, when the MyMusicCloud app is open on your Samsung phone, just launch the MyMusicCloud app on your Gear 2, and choose your songs or playlists by touching the watchface. (As always, you’ll need to have uploaded your music to our cloud beforehand using a desktop, laptop, or tablet.)
Available in charcoal black, gold brown or wild orange, the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches use the Tizen operating system (not Android) and cost $299 with most U.S. carriers, such as AT&T; buy one along with the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone and you’ll get $50 off the bundle.
