This accessory will allow Gear S2 users to swap the wristbands as they wish.
Codrut Nistor,

While not all smartwatch owners like to mess with the bands, a significant number enjoys swapping them to change the appearance of their favorite wearable. Unfortunately, fastening the rubber wristband of the Samsung Gear S2 to put it on and then taking it off on a daily basis causes it to tear apart sooner or later. Even though Samsung replaces the rubber wristbands for the Gear S2 when they break, the replacements will end up breaking again. 

Fortunately, those who have a little patience will soon be able to grab the Samsung Gear S2 band adapter accessory. With its help, non-Classic Gear S2 models, including the Gear S2 Sport, can use virtually any wristband. A member of the notorious XDA forums confirmed that the Gear S2 band adapter allowed him to pair the Classic Gear S2 band with the original Gear S2 display and also posted a few pictures of the accessory.

For now, the band adapter is not official yet. SamMobile claims it might arrive after pre-order customers of Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge flagships on Verizon Wireless get their free Gear S2 units. We will get back to this accessory as soon as that happens.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
