The Gear S2 is one of the Most Beautiful Smartwatch to date, it Will Also Functionality?
The Samsung Gear S2 was destined to be one of the main attractions Berlin IFA 2015, and South Koreans really seem to be meeting expectations. Being the seventh smart watch that the company launches, we all hoped that the experience gained in the six previous generations would have done any good to Samsung when designing its latest smartwatch. And so it has been.
A few days ago we unveiled the technical characteristics of Gear S2, but still had to know all the details of software and first impressions of the means to have it on the wrist. A few minutes ago, the conference focused exclusively on Samsung S2 Gear, we have known all those details were missing. Make yourselves comfortable we started.
The first hands-on look confirms that this is the best smartwatch Samsung to date and one of the most beautiful market right now. Its two models, Classic and Standard, opt for elegance and simplicity, the first of which cut much more traditional, and the second with simple and minimalist lines.
Like bracelet watches, the Gear S2 features a 1.2 inch circular touchscreen superb resolution and color contrast . However, for the first time a watch of the brand Samsung incorporates physical controls, as are the two sides to return to the home screen and back buttons, and the jewel in the crown: the rotating bezel.
By rotating the bezel in one direction or another we can move through the system and its applications. For example, you can select an app from the home screen, choose watchfaces, scrolling through a list, among other functions. Some say it ismore accurate and intuitive to use the Digital Crown Apple Watch. We will see.
One aspect and Promising Future, but still many unanswered questions in the inkwell
The modified version of Tizen OS that runs the Gear S2 seems convincing, has a good selection of watchfaces characters, some of them allow us to set up small widgets information, access to the main functions of the system seem intuitive and generally seems a platform robust. As for applications, Samsung reported that its intention is to have more than 1,000 available when the smartwatch reach the market .
However, we still do not know yet prices Gear Gear S2 and S2 Classic, and this certainly will largely determine its success or failure. As for the release date, Samsung has reported that the WiFi model will be available in early October. For the 3G model will have to wait for the date to give the main telephony operators.
Then we leave with a good collection of photographs to be delighted stop.
