In Pictures: The wearables of Mobile World Congress.

MWC stands for 'more wearables coming'. Wearable tech was big at CES, and now the mania continues at Mobile World Congress. This week’s line-up in Barcelona has included plenty of weird-looking things to put on your head - but we ignored all the headgear to focus on stuff normal people might want to actually wear.

Samsung Gear 2 Neo The Gear 2 Neo is a more affordable version of the new Gear 2. It eschews a camera entirely (which is kind of a bummer), and features a cheaper plastic body. But at least it’s available in orange—a shade close to TechHive orange, our favorite color.

Nonetheless, the Gear 2 Neo gets the same heart rate sensor and extended battery life of the other Samsung wearables. And as with the Gear 2, the Neo uses the Tizen OS instead of Android, but its interface is about the same as what appears in last year’s Galaxy Gear. The Gear 2 Neo ships on April 11, but Samsung hasn’t yet revealed a price.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
