Samsung officially launched the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch in the UAE today. The new smartwatch was made available to the public at the Galaxy Studio, an exclusive pop-up shop at Dubai Mall. Located at the mall’s Waterfall Atrium, the Galaxy Studio will be up and running until November 20, showcasing the new Gear S2, as well as the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5.

To launch the Gear S2, Samsung’s Tarek Sabbagh, head of IM at Samsung Gulf Electronics was present at the event. “Faster and more user-friendly than any device before it, the Gear S2 ensures that no moment is missed and no opportunity is wasted. It’s the only accessory that a truly modern and mobile user will ever need.”
The Gear S2’s unique rotating bezel, along with the Home and Back buttons, ensure that users will have a quicker, more precise method to comfortably access notifications and applications.
