Best of Both Worlds

Sam­sung’s Gear S2 clas­sic is hav­ing its cake and eat­ing it too.

Esquire (Singapore) - - Special Feature -

Sam­sung’s new Gear S2 clas­sic is the lux­ury tech time­piece that we’ve been wait­ing for. Look­ing noth­ing like a tra­di­tional smart­watch, the el­e­gant Gear S2 clas­sic is a re­fined ad­di­tion to the wrist. Its 18k Rose Gold or Plat­inum Plated case won’t look out of place paired with a sharply tailored suit. If you’re dis­sat­is­fied with the stan­dard sleek gen­uine leather strap, why not upgrade to the more deca­dent pre­mium hand­crafted al­li­ga­tor strap? Un­der­neath its pol­ished ve­neer sits no or­di­nary ana­logue watch move­ment, but a mod­ern dig­i­tal sys­tem de­signed to de­liver more than any clas­sic wrist­watch can.

The Gear S2 clas­sic is a truly ver­sa­tile mas­ter. Take its cus­tomis­able watch faces for in­stance. With dif­fer­ent op­tions in­clud­ing Chronograph, World Time and even CNNDig­i­tal, the smart­watch can be tailored to suit ev­ery oc­ca­sion and ev­ery need. Check for ur­gent emails dur­ing meet­ings with a dis­creet swivel of the in­tu­itive ro­tat­ing bezel menu con­trol, which scrolls through a se­ries of apps ra­di­ally. Switch to the Nike Watch­face for a postof­fice work­out; the Wa­ter and Dust Re­sis­tant (IP68) cer­ti­fi­ca­tion will en­sure no com­pro­mise even when you’re run­ning or hik­ing. With its ver­sa­tile looks, the Gear S2 clas­sic’s clean lines and min­i­mal de­sign fits in per­fectly in any work­place. A quick switch of the watch face ups the style ante for a ro­man­tic din­ner date. It’s like hav­ing a dif­fer­ent time­piece for dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions.
