    Samsung Gear S2 comes with a circular face and a Tizen OS.
    Samsung is juicing up its Gear S2 smartwatch with a circular face and more battery life than the Apple Watch, but it’s unknown how many apps will be available for it. Samsung’s newest, the Gear S2, faces competition not just from Apple but also from a variety of manufacturers using Google’s Android Wear software.
    The limited selection of apps is one of the main challenges facing Samsung’s smartwatches. They have been around for longer than the Apple Watch but haven’t generated as much interest or sales.
    According to IDC, Apple was the No 2 maker of wearable devices in the April-June quarter, with a 20 percent worldwide market share, behind the Fitbit and its fitness trackers at 24 percent. Samsung was fifth with 3.3 percent.
