Samsung Gear S2 Classic will launch at T-Mobile on March 11


After launching the Samsung Gear S2 last November, T-Mobile will begin offering its Classic counterpart next month.

The Samsung Gear S2 Classic will be available from T-Mobile starting on March 11. Pricing will be set at $0 down, 23 monthly payments of $16.67 apiece, and one final payment of $16.58. Full retail pricing will be $399.99.

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.

  • Will it again be lacking if you do not have a Samsung Smartphone? That’s the deal breaker for me – otherwise, I’d buy it day 1.

      The gear s2 works with any android phone I believe

      • From my understanding (and I may be wrong), it will work, but some (if not many) of its features require a Samsung smartphone. I hope I am wrong.

        • riverhorse

          For instance… Samsung Pay… It’s gonna get added, but will not work unless also have Sx, NOTEx… what a waste…

    • Alex Wagner

      Yeah, Samsung’s website shows that notifications and apps should work fine with other Android phones, but that features like calls, messaging, email, and Wi-Fi sync are “limited.”

  • Philz

    On my shopping list

  • alex

    say no to $400 watch with non-replaceable battery..

  • Anthony Robertson Junior

    Definiteley will be upgrading from my Gear S2 as I hate the band options and that they made the back a different color than the front. May keep both though.

  • iCrap

    tizen please

  • Philip

    Dont you think watch is for looks and fashion and not for purpose these days?

  • John

    I would get one of they did a promo like the tablets where you pay for the service and get the watch free

  • Guest

    LTE service is getting worse by the hour, it feels. Now I’m on UMTS… a lot faster, but don’t tell anyone or soon it will congested too.

    Nice watch.

    • blitz4075

      you just told people

  • Jose

    3g and 4g no LTE. When T-Mobile upgraded alot of the towers to LTE , Edge only . means this watch would rarely work

    • Rod

      1. That was mainly for towers in the middle of nowhere. Most of Tmo towers have LTE/4G/GSM.
      2. You do realize that Edge is classified as a 3G technology? If a device supports 3G HSDPA/HSPA/WCDMA then GSM/GPRS/EDGE come standard.

  • JB

    Well dab nabbit! If I had only waited a couple months. I just got my Gear s2 3g. I really wanted the classic, but there was no 3g option then!

  • Apple

    What about Samsung updating the customer phones to Marshmallow?


  • vinnyjr

    This is my new SmartWatch to go with my Note 5 and my new S7. Yes Sir, The Gear 2 IMO is the best SmartWatch to date. Thank You Samsung.

  • John

    I’m not buying this !

  • Bajamin

    FINALLY. I’ve been holding off on buying the sport one because it doesn’t look as nice. I can finally get gps on my wrist without wearing down the phone and watch battery! This is going to be great on hikes and on the motorcycle.
