Global launch of Samsung’s Gear S2 Classic begins, available in China first


Samsung first unveiled the Classic New Edition of its Gear S2 smart watch back at CES a couple of weeks ago, and today marks the beginning of its roll-out globally. China is the first country to be graced with the devices’ presence. The Gear S2 Classic New Edition models feature high-end materials and unique finishes, making for a premium experience. 

The new models will be available in either 18K Rose Gold or Platinum. The 18K Rose Gold model boasts an Ivory coloured leather strap while the Platinum model has a black leather strap. While there are no prices mentioned, you can almost guarantee that these new models of the Gear S2 Classic New Edition, with their premium finishes, will carry a premium price. Besides the new finishes, the new models also boast NFC connectivity, which means they are compatible with Samsung Pay.

While China is the first country to see the release of the New Classic Editions of the Gear S2 wearable, you can be sure that the global rollout will continue in the weeks ahead.
