Samsung Gear S2 shown off in official teaser video

Anticipation continues to grow for Samsung’s Gear S2 smartwatch, with the firm offering the clearest look at the feature set yet in a teaser video posted online on Wednesday.

The wearable, which will be officially shown off at next month’s IFA expo, was given a brief prelude during the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ launch event last week.

Now the company has posted the 30-second teaser video for public consumption as the feeling grows Samsung may have finally cracked smartwatches following years of floundering efforts.

The most interesting revelation from the clip appears to be confirmation of a heart-rate monitor.

A sports tracking app is also shown on the round-faced smartwatch congratulating a runner on a “healthy pace” and encouraging them to “keep it up.”

Elsewhere, the video shows a time zone app, a weather app and a stopwatch in action, while icons for phone, calendar, messaging and voice memo apps offer more clues regarding the key functionality.

There’s still no official word on specs, although previous leaks have given us a pretty good idea of what to expect when Sammy makes the official announcement during its IFA 2015 press conference.
