Following the preview at this month’s Unpacked Event and a teaser video released last week, a Samsung executive has now posted a snap of the watch adorning his wrist on Instagram.
VP for Samsung design Dennis Miloseski added the photo with the caption “giving the Gear S2 a test drive.” along with the hashtag #nextlevel. The tag is notable because if there’s one thing the Gear S2 needs to be, it’s next level.
With a much more attractive design (nice one, Dennis) and a revamped UI based around a rotating bezel, it appears Samsung is likely to right a host of previous wrongs.
The smartwatch, which will run the Tizen OS, is likely to go up against a host of new Android Wear devices set to be launched at IFA 2015, which kicks off in Berlin in early September.
