Samsung Gear S2 Classic has two new color variants, Samsung Pay watch app coming soon


Samsung has just announced two new color variants for its Gear S2 Classic smartwatch. Not to be confused for the regular Gear S2, which has the sportier look, the Gear S2 Classic is the one which has a dimple-like pattern around its face and fits the classy leather bands. It used to come in black only, but will soon also be available in Platinum and Rose Gold.

Additionally, Samsung has partnered with various designers to produce a number of watch bands for both the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic. We currently only have a quick promo shot of them, but will hopefully get to see them closer in a hands-on session. Gear S2 owners should also expect more watch faces to become available soon, featuring artwork from different artists, and even silly, comical characters for greater customization options.

Samsung's own mobile payment system — Samsung Pay — will also become available on both the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic. Being able to work on any POS terminal that accepts magnetic cards is definitely one of Samsung Pay's strong suits, as it is theoretically ready to work in almost any store – as opposed to Apple Pay, which requires the sellers to invest in new equipment. Currently, Samsung Pay is available for Galaxy S6 / S6 edge / S6 edge+ / Note 5 owners in South Korea and the USA, with new countries being added to the roster soon.

Fancy a Gear S2, but find yourself too attached to your iPhone 6s? Samsung's smartwatch will become compatible with Apple's iOS later this year as well!

I have the sport, but I am certainly considering getting one of these for when I dress up and go out. Those are ompressive. Makes every smartest check that exist with the exception of the S2 sport model, look like toys. Samsung isn't playimg. The Gear S2 is going to sell like crazy. Probably lyrics even more of you could choose to install Android Wear.

I want that platinum, and adding Samsung Pay with MST and NFC support will make my decision to buy one a no-brainer since I use Samsung Pay almost all the time.
