Here’s the difference: Samsung Gear S2 vs. Gear S2 classic vs. Gear S2 3G


Last updated: September 1st, 2015 at 10:22 UTC+02:00

Samsung has just unveiled its next-genearation smartwatch, the Gear S2, today to compete with the likes of the Apple Watch, the LG Watch Urbane, the ASUS ZenWatch 2, the Huawei Watch, and the successor to the Motorola Moto 360.

The Gear S2 comes with high-end features such as a pixel-dense circular Super AMOLED display, a rotating bezel and two dedicated buttons for navigation within the UI, and a bevy of connectivity options as well as sensors. However, the smartwatch comes in three variants; the Gear S2, the Gear S2 classic, and the Gear S2 3G, and there are slight differences between these variants.

The Gear S2 is thinner than the Gear S2 classic, but both of them have similar connectivity options and battery capacity. Also, the Gear S2 is targeted towards those who like minimalistic design, while the Gear S2 classic is targeted towards consumers who like traditional watch-like smartwatch designs. Both of them have 250 mAh batteries than can be charged wirelessly and can last upto 2-3 days.

The Gear S2 3G is similar to the Gear S2, but comes with cellular connectivity, thanks to an e-SIM. It comes with a microphone so you can carry out voice calls and even connect to the Internet to receive notifications and all forms of updates. To support this extra form of connectivity, the Gear S2 3G has a larger 300 mAh battery, and Samsung claims that it can last upto 2 days after a single charge.

To look at the differences between these three variants closely, have a look at the comparison table on our specs comparison page below.
