Apple isn’t the only one celebrating the new year with a “special edition” watch. At CES 2016, Samsung has unveiled its Gear S2 Classic with two new colour editions.
The first is 18K Rose Gold edition, followed by a Platinum version that offers a more premium outlook. Under the skin, both watches are very much similar to the current Gear S2 Classic.
The Gear S2 in Rose Gold is paired with an Ivory Genuine leather Band, while the Platinum version comes with a Black Genuine Leather Strap. Both are available globally starting in February but there’s no word of its pricing. With an 18 Karat case for Rose Gold, we reckon that Samsung could slap an extra premium on the price tag. In Malaysia, the Gear S2 standard version is priced at RM1,399 while the Gear S2 Classic is going for RM1,599.
Apart from the new variants, Samsung continues to partner with exclusive designers to expand its current watchstrap and watch face options. If you prefer to DIY, you can make your very own watchface design using their Gear Watch Designer program. For the US Market, the Gear S2 owners will soon be able to make payments from their wrist with Samsung Pay.
