Samsung announces two sexy new finishes for the Gear S2

No one wants to wear a cheap-looking smartwatch—especially not if they're paying hundreds of dollars for it. Samsung is not only aware of this, but is constantly attempting to establish itself as a luxury brand, so it makes sense that the company updated its Gear S2 line with two new finishes. You can soon purchase the Gear S2 Classic in 18-karat rose gold or shiny platinum.

The rose gold Gear S2 is truly a sexy little smartwatch.

The rose gold variant of the Gear S2 Classic looks to cater more towards the female crowd, while the platinum variant looks better suited on a male wrist. Both watches feature the same specifications as their regular, polymer-banded predecessors, including a 1.2-inch rounded Super AMOLED display, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage, and a 250mAh battery pack. The Gear S2 Classic is also water- and dust-resistant, and Samsung says that both devices will be compatible with Samsung Pay later in the year. Pricing and availability will also be announced at a later date.
