Samsung Gear S2 debuts

samsung-s2-gearThe world of wearable technology is certainly a thriving one, no doubt about it. After all, it looks like the smartwatch such as the Apple Watch is here to stay, and not only that, grow to achieve even greater heights. In fact, Samsung Electronics have recently announced the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch, which happens to be the South Korean company’s most recent offering where the wearables category is concerned. It is not as though Samsung has not made any foray into this particular “department” before though.

For starters, the Samsung Gear S2 will arrive in a versatile, circular design with an intuitive, custom user interface as well as advanced features that enable users to enhance, personalize and bring more fun to their mobile experience. For instance, there is the Gear S2’s unique rotating bezel, that will be accompanied by the Home and Back buttons, where all of them work like clockwork (pardon the pun) to ensure that users will end up with a quicker, more precise method to comfortably access notifications and applications.

There will be two different options to pick from – one of them would be the Gear S2 while the other is the Gear S2 classic, where Samsung has specially designed the Gear S2 to appeal to two distinct consumer preferences. The Gear S2 classic has been developed to target users who prefer a more timeless watch design, where one can pick from an elegant Black finish with a matching genuine leather band, whereas the Gear S2 would be perfect for those who are on-the-go and have an admiration for minimal and modern design.

You will also find the 11.4mm thin design to be a thing of beauty where the Samsung Gear S2 is concerned, with a 1.2” circular screen and its 360 x 360 resolution (302 ppi). The applications on the Gear S2 are also able to be viewed with amazing clarity, making sure that users do not end up missing notification pop-ups. The latest Tizen OS will complement the optimized 1.0GHz dual core processor, allowing the Samsung Gear S2 to perform tasks easily and efficiently.
