    I saw it in silicon valley in glorietta and sm megamall cyberzone with the same price tag yesterday. I was looking for zenfone deluxe 128gb and bought it for P16500.

    A bit expensive for a smartwatch that doesn’t run Android Wear. Problem with the Gear S2 would be limited apps.

    i actually like this smartwatch by samsung. tizen looks more polished than its early version. i also got to try that bezel, and it is a joy to use rather than touching the screen. apps should be no problem, because come on, how many apps do we need for a watch anyway? tizen’s initial apps looks promising anyway, and the ones that users will really need.
