This handy accessory is finally official and can be acquired in Germany, Singapore and South Africa, but more markets will join them soon.

About one month after it surfaced online, the Gear S2 band adapter that comes directly from Samsung is finally available. While this accessory does not come with any surprises, it delivers exactly what Gear S2 users looking for a solution to use standard 20 mm watch straps with their favorite smartwatch need.

The Samsung Gear S2 band adapter is made using lightweight stainless steel and can be acquired in both silver and dark gray finish. According to Samsung, these accessories "are strong and durable, fitting seamlessly onto the Gear S2, giving the device a wider range of looks, including leather, metal and ceramic."

To use the Gear S2 band adapter, one simply needs to remove the original band, attach the adapter, and then lock in any 20 mm standard watch strap available. To make it even better for Samsung fans who own both wearables, the Gear S2 Classic wristband can be used with the original Gear S2 with the help of this adapter as well.

Unfortunately, the Samsung Gear S2 band adapter is only available in Germany, Singapore and South Africa for now, but many other markets should join them soon.

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.
