Samsung Electronics began the global launch of the highly anticipated Gear S2 Classic New Edition on January 25. China is the first country in which the device has been released, but the launch is set to continue across the globe early this year.


The unveiling of the upgraded version of Samsung’s highly praised smartwatch at CES earlier this month wowed the tech world by merging fashion with technology. To reflect Samsung’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 smartwatch’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.


As countries throughout the world begin to release the Gear S2 Classic New Edition, the device will quickly differentiate itself from other wearables with its unique features that enable it to function as both a stylish fashion accessory and a practical lifestyle product that adds convenience to one’s everyday life.
