Samsung has officially unveiled the long awaited smartwatch (just two weeks!), the Gear S2, previously teased in a short video, the new Samsung smartwatch is now announced but with no exact price and release date, but here are all the other info.
The Samsung Gear S2 comes with a round screen and a rotating bezel, like shown in the picture, the smartwatch looks very beautiful like we’ve already expected, the device has a 1.2 inch display with a 360 x 360 resolution (we was expecting a 1.65 inch one) and a 1GHz dual core processor, the rotating bezel is not well explained, but it will be surely used for app navigation and zooming the pictures. Samsung said the watch is equipped with NFC, which will be used for mobile payment, surely with Samsung Pay, and another 3G version of the watch with an eSIM will allow you to make voice calls from your wrist.
You may wont like it, but the Samsung Gear S2 will be running Tizen, not Android Wear, so you need to own or get a Samsung smartphone, but the good thing is that Tizen is greatly evolving and maybe leaving the Apple Watch OS behind, the Gear S2 promises a 24 hours activity tracking along with notification from your smartphone, Samsung also claim that the device will run between 2 and 3 days on a single charge.
For those who like good design, i think this is the best for you, you can either choose the classic black leather version, or the modern silver Gear S2, i will personally get one!, and for those who wants beautiful watch faces, the Gear S2 also got you covered. You’ll get everything you need, but only from a Samsung smartphone, and you’ll miss the third party Android Wear apps, but anyway lets wait for the rest of the IFA, maybe Samsung is planning for another surprise! Are you getting one ? leave your comments below to let us know!
