Samsung goes for fashion, introduces Gear S Diesel Black Gold edition
Samsung is being very design-conscious lately. Its newest smartphones and their elegant metal frames are one thing, but the Gear S' Swarovski edition and the latest, newest Diesel Black Gold edition are something else! The company seems to get the message that smart-watches have to be very fashionable to gain the interest of traditional timepiece lovers, and its efforts are paying off in an eye-catching trio of products. Diesel Black Gold's creatives used the curvy Gear S as a canvas to create fashion pieces with a sharp leather and metal attitude, inspired by "highly stylized New Wave rock stars and tough rockabilly heroines".

Samsung Mobile's VP of global marketing, Younghee Lee, said that the company intentds to collaborate with other brands from the fashion circle and introduce more personalized products on the market. In addition, Samsung and Diesel will push a 360-degree video of the latter's Black Gold runway show to the newly launched Samsung Gear VR goggles.

Guess Sammy will wait till they get Apple iWatch in the lab then come out with better spec watch/design, lol. Good for competition. This though looks as though it is for the hipsters and is not for me.. Hope it does well competition is good

every company that made a watch looked and the iwatch and said we did all this extra stuff and made it look good and cost good price and apple makes ugly less spec watch and more money. this is what we worked so hard to beat. its like thinking your going up against a moto 360 and kinding out your going up against a playschool toy watch.

And sony's, too. But yeah those straps do look FUGLY. I wanna gear s with a bit of slimmer & classy strap. Metal bands would be good, too

Remove home button and pop it on the side, trim down bezels to half their size and put a 400mah battery instead of 300mah and this would be perfect

Remove Tizen, home button and put it on the side, trim down bezels to half their size and put a 500mah battery instead of 300mah and put Android Wear this would be perfect

I can't believe I'm saying this but Tizen looks & works better on a smartwatch than Android Wear.

I was confused with Samsung Gear S's design. It looks ugly, weird, awkward name it. Anyway, how about a SPIKE straps. That would compliment its design. I'll sure love it. I will invest my money for GALAXY Note 4 instead. HAHAHA!
