Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch, Released in Australia for $499

It’s been an exciting day with the launch of the Samsung Z3 in India, but we also have more news on the Gear S2 smartwatch. The Samsung Gear S2 will be available in Australia from today at its stores in Melbourne, Sydney and online, with additional retailers to follow suit by the end of the month.
The sporty looking Gear S2 (available in silver & dark grey) is priced at $499, with the more traditional looking black Gear S2 Classic priced at $599. Both watches are classified IP68, meaning you can immerse them in water that’s no more than 1.5 metres deep and therefore makes the Gear S2 water resistant.
It is Interesting to note that research by Frost and Sullivan predicts that the Australian wearables market will grow by 78 per cent by 2018.
