The Gear S2 Classic includes many of the same features as the standard Gear S2, including a 1.2-inch 360×360 Super AMOLED display and rotating bezel. The big difference between the two watches is that while the outer edge of the Gear S2 case is smooth, the Gear S2 Classic’s case is ridged, giving it a look that’s reminiscent of analog watches. The Gear S2 Classic’s spec list also includes a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, a 300mAh battery, Tizen software, and a case that’s IP68 dust and water resistant.
Samsung’s Gear S2 Classic also includes built-in 3G and 4G connectivity, which means that you’ll be able to get calls, texts, emails, and notifications even if you don’t have your phone around. T-Mobile will charge $5 per month to add the Gear S2 Classic to your current plan.
