Tag Heuer just announced the most expensive Android Wear smartwatch ever. It’s called the Connected Watch, and it costs $1,500 (£1,000). That’s about double the price of the second most expensive Android Wear device from Huawei, and it marks a move into the proper luxury market for Google’s wearable OS.
Samsung have been in the smartwatch game longer than most, but thus far none of their watches has really been a breakout success. Their new Gear S2 model looks like their best effort yet though, with a slim, full-circle display and a cool rotating bezel for scrolling around the Tizen OS. The watch has received middling to good reviews thus far, with reviewers praising the design, build quality and screen. Points have been taken off though, due to a limited app selection, mediocre battery life and poor voice support. Still, the Gear S2 looks like one of the best smartwatches for Android released this year.
The Samsung Gear S2 is one of the most highly reviewed smartwatches for Android smartphones so far this year, thanks to its slim design, beautiful round display and innovative rotating bezel interface. It’s been flying off the shelves at Mobile Fun (and elsewhere too!), so we’ve been looking to get in more accessories for it. Thus, we’re happy to announce the first official accessory for the smartwatch, coming soon to Mobile Fun: the Samsung Wireless Charging Dock.
We’ve seen some nice Apple Watch accessories over the past few months, but few are as elegant as the Nomad Pod, a combination Apple Watch dock and power bank.
Samsung’s Gear S2 smartwatch is one of the best-received Android Wear devices ever, but it’s still hard to get your hands on one. Thankfully, Samsung have just released an interesting new app that simulates the experience of wearing one, even up to the point of showing a full virtual model on your wrist. Let’s take a closer look!
