Samsung is not only deviating in terms of design but also with the OS. Instead of Android Wear the company went with the new Tizen platform. At a closer look, the Samsung Gear S2 looks like an Apple Watch-inspired gadget.
Integrated with a microphone, the Gear S2 allows users to talk without taking out their handsets if someone calls. It will also have the S-Voice direct to serve as voice assistant.Samsung’s Gear S2 can also be useful in health monitoring since it is equipped with a heart sensor, S-Health fitness-tracking.
But so far most of these are speculations. We’ll see and know for sure at the IFA event in Berlin in just a few weeks.
