The Korean tech giant has released Second Gear S2 Value Pack update. It will allow users to improve their experience nearly to the level of Gear S3‘s capabilities. The update covers major regional markets and will soon be available worldwide in the coming weeks.

Samsung is indeed busy salvaging ground as a key player in smartwatches. Within in just a week or two apart, today’s software update for the Gear S2 makes it the second after Gear Fit2 update.

We think that these improvements may make many fans stick to the old device. The smartwatch can be easily personalized, there is added convenience and improvement of the S Health app. Some of the same features were recently rolled out in Gear Fit2 update.
