Samsung Gear S2 Scores Points for Looking Like a Watch

Samsung Gear S2 Scores Points for Looking Like a Watch
Samsung last week announced the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic smartwatches at the IFA trade show in Berlin. The product specs of the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic are the same. The main difference between the two is in the design of their faces -- the Gear S2 Classic looks more like a regular watch, while it's obvious the Gear S2 is a smartwatch with apps. They run Samsung's Tizen operating system and can sync with any device having 1.5 GB of RAM or more, running Android 4.4 or later. Designed by Italian post-modernist designer and architect Alessandro Mendini, both watches are round and customizable, have various sensors, and come preloaded with apps. Optional 3G connectivity includes an e-SIM card with voice capability, allowing greater functionality without a smartphone nearby.
