Samsung_GearS2_SmartWatch_Tizen (2)

Samsung announced its Gear S2 smartwatch at IFA awhile back, and we’ve been waiting in much anticipation ever since. Today is the day the device officially launches, and those interested, with a compatible smartphone, should be able to pick it up at most major retailers in the United States, Germany, Singapore, and South Korea.

Those in the United States should be able to buy the Gear S2 from Amazon.com, Samsung.com, Best Buy, Macy’s, and others for $299. The Gear S2 classic will set consumers back an additional $50 at $349 for the Gear S2 Classic. Some may want to hold off buying one in hopes of carrier availability being added soon.

As a quick refresh, the Gear S2 sport a 1.2-inch circular 360 x 360 (302ppi) display, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and a battery said to last up to 3 days. In addition to being available in Dark Gray and Silver, some premium bands from Italian designer Alessandro Mendin should be available soon.

Anyone plan on picking one up today?
