Samsung’s Gear S2 to take Android Wear by Storm

Browse This Page

Samsung released its newest addition to the smartwatch category in the form of the Gear S2 at IFA this year. It runs on Tizen, a deviation from what Samsung’s competitors have been doing so far with their smartwatches. However, the most exciting feature of this smartwatch is it’s compatibility with non-Samsung phones. As opposed to all of the previous smartwatches, Samsung has finally launched a product that is not limited by this condition.

This swanky little watch is compatible with any Android smartphone with at least 1.5 GB of RAM that runs Android 4.4. and above. As opposed to Samsung’s older Android wear which bordered a little on being clunky and boring, S2 offers sleekness and elegance. It’s light weight with comfortable elastomer bands and the body is smaller than previous models measuring 40 mm in width instead of 42. The leather strap and the bezel further adds to the swagger of this smartwatch. If this wasn’t enough, Samsung has added Wi-Fi, ESPN sports updates, news tickers and NFC to woo the buyers further.
