Gear S2, The Samsung Smart Circular Watch
The new Samsung Smartwatch is totally different from previous models, now bet on the design of a circular clock, compatible with Android 4.4 or higher. The compatibility limitation of Samsung’s smartwatch has led to a rethinking of strategy change, and now we have a smart watch for “everyone.”

Its usability is quite intuitive and we add the power to navigate the different functionalities through its outer bezel (something new in smartwatch).

The classic version will be sold in two different sizes of dial of 46 and 42 mm (intended for men and women respectively).
