Samsung overtook Apple’s smartphone sales in Australia, with about 36.5% of all units sold within 3 months being of that brand. In terms of devices sold, their flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy 7 Edge managed to secure around 9.3% of all unit sales.
The popularity of the brand reached new heights. Even now, a lot of people want to buy their smartwatch like the Samsung Gear S2 and Samsung Gear S3. If you own one, you know that one of the biggest complaints about it is its lack of Samsung Gear S2 bands choices.
Ever since its release, several companies made new customizable bands. More will come before the year ends, so you’ll have even more options that complement your style. Here are some you can look forward to.

You can buy these bands for the Samsung Gear S2 as well as the Gear S2 classic. These Samsung Gear S2 bands come in five different options:

For people who prioritize customization and design, the company said that they’ll allow people to customize their bands using Instagram or Facebook.
2. Alessandro Mendini Bands

What this means for fashionable people is that their smartwatch caters more to a wider range of personal styles. The customization level extends to the variations of watch faces you can pair with the bands.
Mendini is an Italian designer known for his use of cultures from around the world. He uses new means of expression to deliver a unique artistic experience. Samsung plans these bands to hit the stores during the holidays, so keep an eye out.

5. iTFit Gear S2 Bands
You can buy these Samsung Gear S2 bands for both the normal and classic version of the device. The main difference is that the Gear S2 Classic has more options. They come in six band designs made of leather or NATO.

How to Change the Bands the Easy Way
Some people get confused when it comes to changing their Samsung Gear S2 bands. The easiest way to do it is to turn the watch upside down. You’ll see a little lock next to the watch, attached to the band.
To pull the bolt away from it, it’s necessary to use your thumbnail. Pull the strap up while keeping it steady. It should be snug and secure.
That’s all it takes to quickly swap bands. With the old strap out, you can now focus on sliding its more stylish replacement.
How to Put Your Gear S2 in Power Saving Mode
It’s surprising that some people still don’t know that they can prolong their smartwatch’s battery life by entering power saving mode. The easiest way to do this is to hold down the lower down “home” button on the device’s right-hand edge.
It allows you to see the simple, two-item menu which lets you choose between “power off” and “power saving.”
In power saving mode, you’ll have a greyscale home screen instead of your usual watch face. It disables the device’s WiFi capabilities as well as other functionalities except calling, texting, and alerts.
It limits the Gear S2’s performance but it lets the watch last an entire day, which is useful especially if you forgot to charge it and you have no charging docks in your location.
