Samsung has launched its new Gear S2 smartwatch, which will be available in two different versions.
The Gear S2 has a minimal and modern design, while the Gear S2 Classic is designed for people who prefer a “timeless” watch design. The devices include a rotating bezel, with “Home” and “Back” buttons, which makes it easier to get an access to notifications and applications.
Samsung announced new Gear S2 smartwatch ahead of the IFA technology trade show in Berlin, in a move to get advantage over Apple Watch, which will have a new circular design and 3G connectivity.
Last week, Dennis Miloseski, who is the boss of Samsung’s design for America, posted an image on Instagram, where he was wearing the Gear S2. He said that the new smartwatch is being test, and he was taking it for a test drive.
The Gear S2 smartwatch has a thickness of 11.4mm thick, with a 1.2-inch circular screen and a 360 x 360 resolution (302 ppi).
The Gear S2 smartwatch feature a 1 GHz dual core processor. Its operating system is Tizen, which means the device will only be compatible with other Samsung devices.
With the Gear S2 smartwatch, people can get notifications of calendar appointments, emails and news. Also, users will be able to text directly from their wrist as a result of in-built 3G connectivity. The watch will also allow users to make mobile payments and track activity, among others.
According to the Samsung, the Gear S2 smartwatch’s battery can last up to 2-3 days. It will come with a wireless charging technology.
The Gear S2 smartwatch will have a dark grey case with a dark grey band and silver case with a white band. On the other hand, the Samsung Gear S2 classic will be available in a black case with a leather band.
