Samsung is all set to launch its Tizen-based Gear S2 smartwatch in India's fast-growing wearable device market on Thursday.

The round-faced Gear S2 is fitted with a 1.2-inch (30 millimetre) circular screen and allows for mobile payment and remote control over home appliances as well as common phone calls and text messaging features.

The watch packs an optimized 1-GHz dual core processor and runs Tizen OS, which up until recently was exclusively used for Samsung's smartwatch and TV offerings.

Its features include notifications and the ability to send emails through the watch and voice compatibility for those who purchase the S2 3G model.

The device can work for two to three days continuously and the users will be able to charge it wirelessly with the included watch dock.

The watch will come in Dark Gray with a Dark Gray band and Silver with a White band, while the Samsung Gear S2 Classic will be available in Black with a leather band.

The watch face and the band are interchangeable.
