Samsung Gear S2 Sport Smartwatch

The Samsung Gear S2 Sport Smartwatch was the first Tizen-based watch that was launched with the new round display. Before this, we have square watch faces from the Gear 2, Galaxy Gear and Gear Neo devices. Alongside the round display, we received the rotating bezel, which fast became a signature feature of this line of wearables.

The Gear S2 was offered in two variants; the Gear S2 Sport (this one) and also the Gear S2 Classic. Both devices launched at IFA 2015. Under the hood both devices sported the same hardware, we only had cosmetic and the weight differences between both.
