Samsung begins taking pre-orders for its latest smartwatch, the Gear S2, on Friday. The gadget is compatible with the latest Android smartphones made by all other manufacturers. The predecessor Gear S, which was released last year, was rectangular, but the S2 is round like a traditional watch and users turn the bezel to activate various functions. 

The Gear S2 costs W333,300, while the Gear S2 Classic, which features a serrated bezel and leather strap, costs W374,000 (US$1=W1,168).
