The Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch features a circular design with an intuitive, custom Tizen OS and advanced features that enable users to enhance, personalise and bring more fun to their mobile experience. It will be available in Singapore from 02 October.
The Gear S2’s unique rotating bezel, along with the Home and Back buttons, ensure users will have a quicker, more precise method to comfortably access notifications and applications. Specially designed for consumers with distinct preferences, the Gear S2 is available in two different options – the Gear S2 and the Gear S2 classic. The Gear S2 classic is made for users who prefer a more timeless watch design, offering an elegant Black finish with a matching genuine leather band. The Gear S2 is ideal for those who are on-the-go and have an admiration for minimal and modern design.
A mere 11.4mm thin, the Samsung Gear S2 brings a light and compact design to your wrist. It offers an incredibly vibrant viewing experience for a smartwatch, thanks to its 1.2-inch circular screen and 360 x 360 resolution (302 ppi). The screen is slightly smaller than the G Watch R (1.3 inch) and the Moto 360 (1.56 inch). Applications on the Gear S2 can be viewed with amazing clarity, such that users do not miss notification pop ups. It is powered by a 1 GHz Dual Core processor. Samsung claims the Gear S2 battery can last up to 3 days on a single charge.
New fitness functions on the Samsung Gear S2 will encourage consumers to stay healthy and active. The 24-hour activity log allows users to view daily activity progress and patterns at a glance. Tracking water and caffeine intake is also a breeze. It will also send reminder updates to motivate users to stay on track with their fitness goals. With IP68 rating (dust and water resistant) and Smart Sensors, Gear S2 is designed for users’ active lifestyles.
The Samsung Gear S2 also reflects Samsung’s commitment to openly collaborate with developers and partners to bring increased customisation and applications to its devices. Samsung is working closely with partners to offer a range of watch faces and watch bands so that users can have a variety of ways to express their personal style and mood. Consumers can easily replace the band with one click to suit the time, place or occasion, and change the watch face for a more personalised look. The classic Gear S2 leather band can be swapped out with a off the shelf strap.
