Sam­sung Gear S2

HWM (Malaysia) - - THINK -

Not keen to let peren­nial Ap­ple have all smart­watch lime­light, Sam­sung took the chance at IFA 2015 to launch their latest and pos­si­bly great­est smart­watch.

A far cry from Sam­sung’s pre­vi­ous, clunky smart­watches, the Gear S2 is a sleek, round smart­watch with a 1.2-inch AMOLED dis­play, a stain­less steel case and a ce­ramic bezel. That bezel is the best thing about the watch. It’s the way you in­ter­act with it, ro­tat­ing left or right with a light click, let­ting you nav­i­gate from app to app, or scrolling up and down when you’re in­side an app it­self. Once you’ve scrolled to the app you want, you just tap the screen. It’s such a sim­ple and in­tu­itive de­sign for a watch, it’s amaz­ing noone has thought of it be­fore.

Like most of Sam­sung’s re­cent smart­watches, the Gear S2 runs on Tizen OS, how­ever, it will be com­pat­i­ble with any An­droid smart­phone run­ning An­droid 4.4 or later, with at least 1.5GB RAM.
