The IFA fair starts this week in Berlin, and she will bring a flurry of gadgets, particularly wearable devices. The Samsung beat announcing the Gear S2, an update to the weird Gear S last year.
They have a very different design: while the Gear was bulky and horizontal, the new S2 are circular.
Yes, there is more than one model: the Gear S2 (above) has a futuristic look, while the Gear S2 Classic (below) resembles a traditional wristwatch.
Both have a border, about which we have heard in May. You can rotate it to navigate in a list, give and take images zoom, change certain values in the UI, and change the volume. There are also discreet buttons Home and Back in the side.
The clocks run Citizen instead of Android Wear. Samsung says there are more than 1000 apps for the system, and what options adapted for the circular format will be available at the launch of the S2. The Citizen also allows a range of 2 to 3 days for the battery-you carry using a wireless base.
The watches have 11.4 mm thick and a 1.2-inch AMOLED screen with 360 × 360 resolution. This results in a pixel density of 302 ppi, tied by HEALTHVV with Apple LED Watch.
Inside, we have a dual-core processor 1 GHz, 512 MB and 4 GB of storage. They have IP68 certification for water resistance and dust.
The clock also works as a physical activity monitor. It has accelerometer and gyroscope to follow in his footsteps, heart rate monitor, and comes with the apps’s Health and Nike + Running.

All versions of S2 will come with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC: Samsung says it can be used for mobile payments, to open doors of the House, the car, and even to control a connected home.
In addition, the Gear S2 will also have an option with 3 g and a new type of chip, called and Yes, so you can completely get rid of the smartphone (if you want). Unfortunately, the 3 g models are a bit bulkier-are 13.4 mm thick.

The S2 will be available in dark grey colour strap, and silver in color with white bracelet. The Classic version will have black body and leather strap. Samsung says it is working with manufacturers to create more bracelets for the watch, which you can change by pressing a button.
As these watches will cost? Samsung should only reveal that the day on September 3.
