Unboxed: Samsung Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic


Samsung’s latest round smart watches, the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic are now available at selected countries including Singapore. At S$448 (RM1,374) for the standard Gear S2 and S$548 (RM1,681) for the classic variant, they are more expensive than its former square faced wearables. When compared to the Apple Watch, it is still cheaper considering the base 38mm Watch Sport is going for S$518 (RM1,589).

Like all gadget devices, Samsung wants to share the unboxing experience with their very own official unboxing video. The packaging is rather similar to the Moto 360 with a circular box which pops right open from the top. Inside you’ll find the standard manual, a power adapter and a induction charger that’s similar to the Moto 360. The straps are interchangeable too and also seen are 2 different sizes to fit various wrists. In terms of support, the Gear S2 isn’t exclusive to Galaxy devices and it works with a wide range of Android smart phones with Android 4.4 KitKat and over 1.5GB of RAM.
