Samsung teases round Gear S2 for IFA


It looks like the watch we’ve known as the Galaxy Gear A may finally arrive as the Gear S2. At the end of their Unpacked event today Samsung left with a tease of the new round smartwatch. Showing only a few pictures and promising more information at IFA, the watch features a drastic design change from last year’s Gear S. We do know that the watch will run Tizen instead of Android Wear. We don’t know whether Samsung will finally expand compatibility of the device to other Android phones outside of their eco-system. We will know a lot more about this watch in a few weeks at IFA in Berlin. For now, enjoy the picture gallery below and let us know your thoughts in the comments!

"I am currently a researcher and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University. I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
