Wearable tech: 4 things we love about the Samsung Gear S2
The Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch launched in Malaysia last week. We had the pleasure of trying out this new tech gear first hand, and here is what we loved about it:
1. The design
Bearing a classic round case with a durable stainless steel body, the Samsung Gear S2 sits slim and sleek on the wrist. Available in two variants, the Gear S2 Sport bears a sleek and sporty look while the Gear S2 classic is a vision of elegance. Customising the watch face and changing watch bands is made easy, so you can tailor it to suit any mood or occasion.
2. S Health
Staying fit and healthy is ever relevant. Let S Health on the Gear S2 be your fitness companion—it tracks your daily activity levels, heart rate, water vs. caffeine intake, and more. It even chips in timely motivational messages to keep you going.
Accessing the necessities on your wrist is done with a simple twist on the bezel. More than just a fitness tracker, stay connected with social updates, get instant work notifications, and play the next track, all from a swift motion to the wrist.
The Gear S2 has the incredible capacity to store 300 songs synced seamlessly from your phone. When you leave your phone at home for a run, the Gear S2 and Level U Bluetooth headphones are all you need. The Gear S2 is able to connect to all Android smartphones, not just Samsung models. Even better news? It seems that iOS support may well be on its way.
