The nov­el­ty has a round screen and runs on the Tizen oper­at­ing sys­tem.

Sam­sung today announced the lat­est addi­tion to its line of smart­watch­es. Gear S2 fea­tures a clas­sic design with an intu­itive inter­face, as well as advanced cus­tomiza­tion options.

A rotat­ing bezel with home and back keys should pro­vide com­fort­able inter­ac­tion with the device and con­ve­nient access to var­i­ous func­tions and appli­ca­tions. This is the same frame that has pre­vi­ous­ly lit up in oth­er Sam­sung doc­u­ments.


In total, Sam­sung plans to sup­ply 2 watch mod­els: stan­dard and clas­sic. The stan­dard ver­sion will be equipped with a sil­ver or black case and a sil­i­cone strap. And the clas­sic mod­el will have only a black ver­sion and a leather strap. Option­al­ly, Sam­sung offers a watch with a 3G-mod­ule and the pos­si­bil­i­ty of voice com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

The strik­ing thick­ness of 11.4mm for a device of this class will make you for­get that you are wear­ing a mul­ti­me­dia proces­sor with a pow­er­ful 1GHz proces­sor, 4GB of per­ma­nent mem­o­ry and 512MB of RAM on your wrist. The res­o­lu­tion of the round AMOLED dis­play is 360x360 pix­els — a den­si­ty of 302 pix­els per inch.

For greater user con­ve­nience, the Gear S2 has an NFC chip that allows instant mobile pay­ments. In addi­tion, the watch loves sports, and will keep a round-the-clock activ­i­ty log, send­ing noti­fi­ca­tions and moti­vat­ing you in every pos­si­ble way to new achieve­ments.

Sam­sung is a pio­neer in wear­able elec­tron­ics, we have not been afraid of the unbeat­en path and brought the most dar­ing engi­neer­ing solu­tions to the mar­ket.
Pres­i­dent of the mobile divi­sion of the com­pa­ny.

Bat­tery life Gear S2 — from 2 to 3 days. To recharge, you need to place the watch on the wire­less dock that comes with the kit. The rest of the infor­ma­tion, includ­ing pric­ing, will be revealed today at IFA in Berlin. [Sam­sung­Mo­bile]
