When it comes to smartwatches and Android devices, Those running Android Wear are generally the most versatile, but Samsung’s Gear S2 smartwatch launched a little earlier this year brings Samsung’s expertise in the wearables field to just about any Android device instead of just those from their own lineup. Normally the regular model would end up costing $299 for full retail, but you can currently pick it up for just $249.99 and save $50, which makes this an especially great gift for anyone who has someone on their list with a smartwatch in mind for the holidays.
The Samsung Gear S2 is Samsung’s first smartwatch with a round face, and this particular model sports a silicone strap in dark gray. The gear S2 is equipped with a 1.2-inch AMOLED display with a 320 x 320 resolution, it supports Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi, and NFC, and it’s powered by a dual-core Pega W processor clocked at 1GHz. It has 4GB of internal storage and 512MB of RAM which is pretty standard across the range of smartwatch offerings from most companies, and it also holds a 250mAh battery which Samsung boasts should help it deliver 2 to 3 days of use before it needs to be recharged. It’s also IP68 certified which means it’s resistant to rain and dust.
