Samsung's has unveiled their latest iteration of the Galaxy Gear line of smartwatches today , the new watch , named the Galaxy Gear S2 ,brings a end to the squarish designs of the past .The new smartwatch or let's say "watches" as Samsung has a more premium model called the Galaxy Gear S2 classic are both based on Samsung's own in house OS - Tizen . The S2 and S2 classic are both set to be available with bluetooth+wifi and Bluetooth+wifi and cellular 3G connectivity so you can use the watch as a independent unit without getting a tethered android device (tethering requires a Android device running Android 4.4 and a device with atleast 1.5GB of RAM) design wise both models have a 1.2" circular AMOLED display, a 1 GHz processor and a rotatable bezel to select through menus. NFC is available on all models for mobile payments

Samsung Galaxy Gear S2 and S2 Classic
This is basically Samsung's more affordable sports option. The watch is almost identical to the classic model in every single way and it has a 3G option as well. The bands on this watch made out of silicon, but if you want something more metallic or leather, the S2 classic is probably the better choice. The S2 classic on the other hand is set to be the premium model and therefore it has a tonne of leather and metal band options when compared to the simple silicon bands found in the standard version, the classic is also slightly smaller than the sport version, this makes it more elegant
