Not long after Samsung revealed the Gear S2 Classic Platinum and Rose Gold editions — two, more premium versions of the Gear S2 Classic — they have announced that they will be teaming up with well-known jeweler and watchmaker de Grisogono, to introduce a limited edition Gear S2.
According to Samsung, the new watch will feature an overhauled and more premium design language with de Grisogono’s signature galuchat design on its strap.
Adorning the smartwatch’s case is over a hundred black and white diamonds giving the wearable a distinct classy look.
The 41mm case itself is made up of black DLC-coated stainless steel set with 71 black diamonds while the rotating bezel features 56 white diamonds set in rose gold. Users will still be able to turn the bezel freely, though, it just feels better now.
On paper, the smartwatch sports the same specs with a 1.2-inch circular Super AMOLED screen (360×360 pixels) which has a pixel density of 302ppi. On the inside, the smartwatch has 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.
The device is WiFi capable (with support for 802.11 b/g/n, has NFC and is also Bluetooth 4.1 compatible. Other features include an accelerometer, gyroscope, heart rate sensor, ambient light sensor and barometer.
It charges its 250 mAh battery wirelessly and a single charge will give about 2-3 days of typical usage.
There isn’t any specific information on pricing and availability beyond it being available in summer through both Samsung and de Grisogono retail channels. This smartwatch will make its official debut at Baselworld 2016, a prestigious show for the world’s watch and jewelry industry, taking place on March 17th-24th in Messe Basel, Switzerland.
