Last week when Samsung launched its two new phones, the Galaxy S6 Edge + and Galaxy Note 5, it also got the tech world excited by showing a short teaser video of its eagerly anticipated new smartwatch, the Samsung Gear S2.
To build even more hype for the new smartwatch ahead of its official launch in early September, the company has just released the teaser on You Tube for the whole world to get excited about the device that’s set to rival the Apple Watch.
With its stylish design, round face and apparently smaller size, the Samsung Gear S2 looks nothing like its bulky predecessor, the Samsung Gear S, and is arguably even better looking than the Apple Watch.
While we’ll have to wait until September for the full specs, the video does hint at some of its functions including heart rate sensor, sport tracking, stopwatch, weather and time zone apps.
The video confirms that the Gear S2 will be announced on September 3 at the IFA in Berlin, and we’ll certainly be tuning in then to find out more.
What are your first impressions of the Samsung Gear S2? Do you think it’ll be a match for the Apple Watch.
