Samsung Gear S2 Smart Watch shown off in Lifestyle images


The next big thing from Samsung would be their upcoming new smart watch. As teased during Samsung Unpacked yesterday, the new round smart watch will be called the Gear S2 and it’s going to be launched in Berlin next month.

Compared to the previous Gear smart watches, the new Gear S2 has a simple and uncluttered appearance. It looks like a normal watch without shouting that this is a high-tech device. With a round watch face, it blends in quite well as an ordinary watch and this is the same approach taken by the Moto 360, Huawei Watch and the LG Watch Urbane.

Without revealing actual sales figures, the Apple Watch is believed to have sold over 4 million units since April. That’s quite a massive figure and some are expecting the Cupertino company to take 40% market share in the premium watch sales by 2020. Can Samsung make smart watches more appealing for the masses? We’ll find out once the Gear S2 goes to market.

Check out the full Gear S2 lifestyle images after the break.
