Samsung Gear S2 now available for purchase
Samsung unveiled the Gear S2 at this year's edition of the IFA trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances, about a month ago. Today, the company's latest smartwatch becomes available for purchase in the United States, but also in Singapore, Korea, and Germany.
The Gear S2 comes with a full circular display and unique rotating bezel, offering both convenience and style. The rotating bezel acts as the main control, next to the Home and Back buttons placed on the side of the smartwatch. The specs of this smart wearable include a dual-core 1 GHz processor, a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display, 512 MB of memory and 4 GB of internal storage, up to 3 days of autonomy, NFC connectivity and more.
Samsung Gear S2 will be available in three versions - Gear S2, Gear S2 Classic, and Gear S2 3G. All carry the IP68 certification for protection from the elements and are compatible with Android handsets with at least 1.5 GB of memory that run Android 4.4 KitKat or later.
The Gear S2 has a price tag of $299 USD while the S2 Classic can be purchased for $349 USD. The 3G model is not available at this time, but should hit the market later this fall.
