“Gear S2 is a sleek and smart wearable that enable users to augment and personalise their mobile experience and lifestyle. The introduction of these new variants with additional apps and watch faces will further add to the style and convenience quotient. Samsung Gear S2 is a true testimony to our commitment to provide breakthrough technology to make lives of our consumers richer,” said Manu Sharma, Director, Mobile Business, Samsung India Electronics in a press statement.
Samsung Gear S2 is now available in 5 variants in India – Gear S2 Classic Black, Gear S2 Classic Rose Gold, Gear S2 Classic Platinum, Gear S2 Black and Gear S2 White.
In our review, we had loved the Samsung Gear S2 especially for its comprehensive fitness feature and stunning watch faces. We also liked the way Samsung has introduced the rotating bezel in the Gear S2’s daily user interaction.
However the lack of apps was an obvious problem, and we had mentioned the same in our review. Now it seems Samsung is trying to fix this by adding new apps like Uber, more games, etc for the watch in the hope of increasing its use cases.
