There seems to be a popular post making its way around the internet stating that Samsung has released the Gear S2 for sale in the US today. Well, sort of. The only model currently available today from any retail outlets is the black version of the Gear S2 proper (by which I mean not the Classic model). If you wanted either the white version of the Gear S2 proper or the Classic variant, you’re out of luck. Thankfully, Samsung does have one that they will be happy to ship you in 3-4 weeks though!
Both Best Buy and Macy’s list the Classic as “Coming Soon” or “Backordered”, and the white model and Classic are not even listed on Amazon yet. I’m a bit disappointed as I wanted the white model to match my white Note 5. Perhaps Amazon will update with more listings later today, but until then it appears Samsung has done a less than stellar job of rolling out this product. I’ll keep you posted on any availability changes, and yes, I’ll probably have an unboxing of the black Gear S2 later today on my Youtube channel.
