Samsung has announced that the company has kicked off the worldwide launch of the Gear S2 Classic New Edition, starting in China.
What make this version of the Gear S2 differentÃ‚Â is the choice of finish: 18K Rose Gold and Platinum. You have the choice of rose gold plating with an ivory leather strap, or a platinum finish with a black leather band.
“The unveiling of the upgraded version of SamsungÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s highly praised smartwatch at CES earlier this month wowed the tech world by merging fashion with technology. To reflect SamsungÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s commitment to bringing more choices to consumers, the reintroduction of the Gear S2 Classic takes the intuitive, award-winning design of the Gear S2 and incorporates high-end materials and two unique finishes: 18K Rose Gold and Platinum. The new 18K Rose Gold edition features rose gold plating (18K) and is sold with an Ivory Genuine Leather Band, while the Platinum version showcases platinum finishes with a Black Genuine Leather Band.
Additionally, a new suite of stylish watch faces that feature Peanuts characters and artwork by creatives such as Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, provides a more personalized wearable experience and allows consumers to easily express their personality with a simple twist of the bezel. Moreover, in an effort to further improve the smartwatchÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s user capabilities, Samsung has partnered with additional developers to offer an expanded application ecosystem that complements multiple lifestyles. New additions include the CNN and Bloomberg Gear S2 apps, which boast their own specialized watch face features, while others like eBay, ESPN, Uber and Voxer are designed to enhance the convenience of the device.”
The smartwatch is available in China from today and the lauch is set to continue across the globe early this year.
