Samsung Gear S2 Smartwatch and Gear VR Launched in India for Rs 24,300



Samsung Gear S2

Samsung, the South Korean electronics giant, has launched their Tizen OS powered smartwatch, the Gear S2 in India today. It is the successor to the Gear S smartwatch, which was launched in India as well just after the announcement at IFA. This time, it took quite a while for the company to bring their most recent smartwatch into the country. The brand has hosted an event in New Delhi where it was officially launched for its Indian audience. The Gear S2 standard model is priced at Rs 24,300 while the Gear S2 Classic, a slightly premium model is priced at Rs 25,800.

The wearable market is growing faster worldwide while on the other hand India is taking it slow; the reason may be several; no smartwatch enthusiasts, or most likely because of the costly options. Now this smartwatch doesn’t come under affordable range, but as India become aware of the latest technology in a smartwatch, they are more than likely to try out and buy these smartwatches.

Gear S2

Samsung Gear S2 sports a circular design with a rotating bezel that’s one of the reasons company has been teasing about the turning time in their recent tweets. The touch-based gestures or the rotating bezel can be used to jump between the menus and functionalities. It is equipped with 1.2-inch 360 x 360 resolution display that is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

Under the hood is the Exynos 3250 chipset, which is a dual-core processor coupled with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of Internal storage. Talking about the connectivity options, it comes with Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi, NFC and 3G network support. Note that the Gear S2 is rated with IP68 certification, which means it is water and dust resistance. Meanwhile, it sports a heart rate sensor and is powered by a 300mAh capacity battery, which should last at least for two days. The Indian edition comes with unique watch faces.

Samsung Gear VR 2

While it is not the only device that was launched today, the company also launched their first VR headset in the country. The Gear VR that was announced more than 18 months ago during IFA 2014 event along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has finally seen the day of light in the country. The Virtual Reality headset market is nowhere near fruitful now, but with growing interests by many manufacturers like LeTV, which would be releasing their LeVR Cool 1 headset in India soon for an affordable pricing it was getting mandatory for Samsung to apparently introduce theirs in the country.
