The adoption rates for wearables has been somewhat underwhelming, so the announcement of the Samsung Gear S2 Band Adapter looks to make them more feasible. The product enables users to interchange the bands on their smartwatch with traditional watch straps rather than be limited to just the ones designed for the wearable.
The adapter works by being clipped onto the unit and instantly allows users to add 20mm watch straps onto the smartwatch. This makes it compatible with a large number of traditional straps on the market as well as straps available from the brand.
The Samsung Gear S2 Band Adapter is currently available for purchase in Germany, Singapore and South Africa with the adapter heading to more countries in the near future.
