O2 bags Samsung Gear S2 classic exclusive


It becomes the first smartwatch to come with an embedded e-SIM, available on a range of O2 Refresh tariffs 

O2 has exclusively launched the Samsung Gear S2 classic 3G, the UK’s first smartwatch to feature an embedded e-SIM.

It is available on O2’s Refresh tariff in selected O2 stores and online. Tariff options include £22 per month with a £9.99 upfront charge to provide 100 minutes, unlimited texts and 100MB of data to use when not connected to a phone.

The Samsung Gear S2 classic 3G pairs with smartphones running on Android 4.4 and higher.

It is the first device to feature an embedded e-SIM approved by industry body the GSMA, meaning customers can change their provider without the need for a new SIM card, or upgrade their tariff instantly.

Cased in a stainless steel body and with a range of fitness trackers, the Gear S2 classic 3G can make and receive calls as well as send and receive texts without their phone needing to be nearby.
