Official Samsung Gear S2 video shows how the smartwatch comes in handy
On the day that Verizon started taking pre-orders for the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch, Samsung has released a video showing how the timepiece can come in handy. The promo video is called "Dial In." Like most other wearables of this ilk, the Gear S2 will help you monitor your exercises, and make sure that you are on target when it comes to working out. You can even make your workout feel less strenuous by listening to your special exercise playlist.

With the Gear S2, you can have text messages already written up and ready to send in the blink of an eye. Turning the bezel will change the message to be sent. The video also shows how you can keep tabs on your favorite team, even while putting your new baby to sleep. With the timepiece, you don't have to balance your phone and the baby, worrying that you might drop one of them. As far as accessories go, a nifty desktop dock turns the watch into a bedside clock.

While the Tizen powered Samsung Gear S2 pairs with a specific list of Android phones (all running Android 4.4 or higher, and sporting at least 1.5GB of RAM), including Samsung Galaxy handsets, the cellular enabled version can be connected to the world all by itself. Verizon is taking pre-orders for that model starting today, priced at $299.99 with a two-year contract, or $349.99 if you want to pay the full retail price. The phone will arrive at the carrier on November 6th. T-Mobile will have the watch online and in stores on November 15th, priced at $359.99. If you qualify, that amount can be paid over 24 months.
