BERLIN -- Samsung's new smartwatch may look like many others, but it takes a novel approach to navigation, letting you browse menus by spinning that bezel around the edge. Click through to check out our hands-on photos.
This is the Gear S2 Classic, which is similar to the Gear S2 but has a fancier leather strap.
The Classic is almost identical in other respects, here's one of the many optional watch faces on show -- this one's looking rather minimalist.
The Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic both connect to a smartphone over Bluetooth. If, however, you want something a little more flexible, Samsung will also be selling the Gear S2 as a 3G version, which can make phone calls without being tethered to a smartphone.
Posed on a human's wrist, you can see that the Gear S2 is quite small. That's refreshing, as many smartwatches released to date are conspicuously chunky.
Samsung's promising two- to three-day battery life for the standard Gear S2, which is quite a claim. If it's true, and if the spinning dial interface proves to be a winner, Samsung could have a very tempting smartwatch on its hands. Or on its wrists, at least.
