Last month, the two new Gear S2 Classic models Samsung unveiled at CES began their global rollout. And now this is about to take them to the US.
Both the rose gold and the platinum Gear S2 will become available stateside tomorrow, for a recommended retail price of $449.99. You'll find them at Samsung's own online store, as well as at Best Buy, Amazon, Macy's, and other outlets in the country.
Both smartwatches are only plated with the metal that's mentioned in their names, and not actually made out of a solid piece of it - hence the rather affordable pricing. You get an Ivory genuine leather band with the rose gold model, and a black genuine leather band with the platinum one. Spec-wise nothing has changed from the original Gear S2 Classic, so these models also have the same exact innards.
We're talking about a 1.2-inch circular Super AMOLED touchscreen with 360x360 resolution, a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, IP68 certification for water and dust resistance, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, a bunch of sensors (including a heart rate monitor), and a 250 mAh battery with support for wireless charging.
