Samsung Gear S2 promotional video is all about the Circular UX

Samsung Gear S2 promotional video is all about the Circular UX
 Samsung's "Circular UX" is the focus of a promotional video released today for the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. Turning the bezel allows the user to switch between features. Some of those options displayed in the video include the music player, S Health (which was shown timing a runner and tracking a heart beat), and Messages (including the use of emoji during a text message).

The goal of the 2 minute+ video is to show you how the Tizen powered timepiece can easily switch between functions with a turn of the bezel. Your experience with the Samsung Gear S2 "gets better with every turn" according to the manufacturer. The watch features a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 360 x 360 resolution. That works out to a 302ppi pixel density. A dual-core 1GHz CPU powers the device, which includes 4GB of internal storage and 512MB of RAM. The watch has been IP68 certified making it dust and water resistant, and the battery will last for 2 to 3 days.

By the way, in case you're curious, the song that plays in the background (you'll either love it or hate it, but either way you can't get it out of your head) is Cash Cash's "Kiss The Sky" from 2013.

Samsung will never do a good promotional video. Apple is the master of promotional videos.

I'm agree, Apple is the best making promotional videos, they just know how to do it right.

You clown knick Samsung if they copy Apple, then when they Re original and don't copy; you all still knock them. You all are so ignorant. The commercial was fine. It was different. You wanna know what the device does? Buy it.

I bought one, didn't need the ads or any negotiation. Best smartwatch out there right now. Makes apple's attempt at a smart watch look like a toy. Much better overall product delivery and finish than the Moto360 too.

In all honesty, I find apple's promos exceptionally lame, but the most lame things are their slogans like, "the only thing that change is everything." yeah right, same design, same screen. Everything's changed... Typical propaganda for the isheep.

But Samsung are the masters at putting out cutting edge tech. I'll take that over good videos any day.

Master? of course worshiper will follow... this ads better than bashing compepitor product or over promising their product with exaggerated words. Haters gonna hate...

It's funny in the video they showed a lot people up close and made their heads clear, HOWEVER NOT SINGLE ONE WAS WEARING them... At least put your dang product in the ad

It was in the ad. It was on the ground. Why do they need to wear it too? Oh wait, you're confused. This isn't an Apple Fanboi Lovers Promo.

I like your comments, you know why? Because it confirms how stupid are the Android lovers. I know that in your dream, you always want to have an iPhone. Go for it, it will be difficult in the first days due the comments of your friends but once you use it you discover what is a real smartphone.

Waaaaat? intelligent ads for intelligent people.. Apple ads are for very simple minds - which is why you don't get it. BWAHAHA

Nah, gear s2 sux. They removed ability to make calls from a watch - function that even the 1st gen gear had. This is pathetic. It's too small and lacks in terms of both functionality and apps. Sorry sammy, but you screwed up.

11. TyrionLannister unregistered

You can make calls from the 3G version of the watch.

You are ignorant because they wake a version with and without cellur. Did you say the Apple Watch sux, because it doesn't have cellular now will there be a cellular model. Or are you the typical biased hypocrite like most here are? #justaskin

Awsome Ad. Very creative.

Good ad. It's not a rip of any other manufacture and it shows Samsung's willingness to take a chance. I think the gear2 is a great smartwatch.

I love my Gear S2 classic. I wear it a lot more than my Huawei Watch. It's just the perfect size and the bezel UI is awesome.

The original teaser was a much better commercial though, that was fantastic.

I have the Gear S2 sport (non classic version) and its nothing short of spectacular. I've had so many smart watches since android gear (LG G watch, Samsung fit band, Samsung gear S, moto360, sony SW1 2 and 3) and they've all fallen short on something. The Gear S2 looks good, feels good, works good. Tizen FTW too

I have to say that you have to give props to samsung for creativity. But, if it was a little bit simpler it would be better.

I have a gear S2 classic and I love it, but it needs to get the notifications more consistently. I only get about 80% of them.
