Samsung Gear S2 now available to buy in the US
Just as expected, today, October 2, Samsung started selling its Gear S2 smartwatch in the US. However, only the Dark Grey variant of the Gear S2 is available to ship in the next few days, while the Gear S2 in Silver and the Gear S2 Classic (in Black) will be shipped in 3 to 4 weeks. Anyway, you can order any of the three models via Samsung's own website: the Gear S2 (in either Silver, or Dark Grey) costs $299.99, while the Gear S2 Classic can be purchased for $349.99.

The Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic are based on Tizen (not Android Wear), and sport 1.2-inch circular Super AMOLED screens with 360 x 360 pixels. They work not just with Samsung's Galaxy handsets, but also with a variety of non-Samsung smartphones running Android 4.4 or later and featuring at least 1.5 GB of RAM (here's a complete list of devices). While both the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic are water-resistant and feature rotating bezels (these help navigating through the UI), they look different: the Classic is called like that because it really resembles a classic timepiece, while the regular S2 has a futuristic design.

Later this year, a Gear S2 3G will also be available in the US (and other markets), but Samsung didn't say exactly when, and neither for what price.
