eLander stainless steel band

The classic look of stainless steel links pairs perfectly with the Samsung Gear S2 Classic and this band from eLander is a standout example. It's available in silver, but the stainless steel black is equally beautiful.

It comes with a toolkit for removing extra links and fits virtually any wrist. The clasp locks securely so your watch won't jostle around on your wrist and it's an excellent dressed-up alternative to the standard leather band, at a reasonable price.

Screen protectors

You didn't spend your hard-earned money on your Samsung Gear S2 or Gear S2 Classic to get the face all scratched up. Put a screen protector on it!

Spigen tempered glass screen protector

Spigen is known for creating products that fit well and protect your gear. Their tempered glass screen protector fits both the Samsung Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic and helps to stop your watch face from scratching, cracking, and overexposure to the elements.

It comes with easy-to-install wings so that you don't get gunk or fingerprints on the underside of the screen protector. The edges won't lift up on you and the tempered glass is incredibly thin, maintaining the touch sensitivity of the screen.

Skinomi TechSkin screen protector

An alternative to tempered glass comes from Skinomi SkinTech. It still protects against incidental scratches and daily wear but is thinner than tempered glass and designed to be replaced if or when necessary, which is OK, since you'll receive six for the price of one.

The edges of the screen protector won't roll up and the TPU is UV-resitant, which means won't yellow over time. It remains virtually invisible to keep the original clarity of the screen as it should be.

Charging docks

Get something nice to hold your watch while it charges. A charging dock keeps in in sight and displayed for bragging purposes, and wireless charging docks mean there's no need to tediously plug in your Gear S2 or Gear S2 Classic every night.

Samsung Wireless Charger Dock

Samsung offers their own white or black charger dock (opens in new tab) for the Samsung Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic. If you're feeling brand-loyal and want to stick to the product line, it's a well-reviewed charger for the price.

The cradle holds the watch securely on any flat surface, like your office desk, coffee table, or nightstand and it doesn't obstruct your view of the watch face, allowing you to show off the band you're currently using.

Henoda charging cradle

The non-slip base will keep the charger in place on any flat surface, and if you already have a charger or cradle that you use at home, the Henoda is a great alternative for travel or to keep at your desk.

  • Overall great list, but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the concept of a carrying case for a watch.
  • Have the black stainless band from Amazon. Works and looks great and use it for all pictures of our watch faces. Can check photos out here on Instagram: Posted via the Android Central App
  • Advertise much for yourself? It's not on all photos and clearly your comment was more about bait clicking to see the watch faces you sell.
  • I just got the V-Moro band in gray. The original band broke and I got this to replace it. The color is slightly different than the original but the band is super soft and stretchy. Not bad for the money. I world recommend it if someone asked. I just ordered the Spigen screen protector after reading this though. I had a different brand from Amazon but it just cracked.

  • WHERE'S SAMSUNG PAY!?! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Samsung never bothered to make Samsung Pay available on the Gear S2 as promised. They promised availability in Q1 and then in the first half of 2016 and it hasn't happened yet and I'm not expecting anything like a useful version to appear on the S2 at all. Not after hints that we'll have to wait for the S3 to see a full featured version of Samsung Pay on a smartwatch. For me, the killer app for my 4G Gear S2 Classic was the long promised by the end of Q1 Samsung Pay. Samsung Pay on the phone just isn't all that handy, if I have to fish out my phone I may as well just pull out my wallet. Swiping my watch would much-much handier. I can buy message delivery watches and Fitbit's for a small fraction of the price of my SM-R735t Gear S2 classic so as far as I'm concerned Samsung dropped the ball and failed its customers.
  • Just got my Gear S2 classic on Friday. Loving these posts about it the last couple days. Keep them coming! Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have a Gear S2 waiting on my porch right now. This last hour of work has been TORTURE!!!
  • No mention of the watch strap adapter? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Because it is only available in a few countries , and I haven't seen them online anywhere to order.
  • This is a really nice roundup, but what's missing are watch bands for T-Mobile's SM-R735t version of the Gear S2 Classic. All or almost all of watchbands are for SM-R732 non-3G/4G S2 Classics and specifically state that they will not fit the 3G and 4G watches. The Q&A section for the eLander that you linked hints that this one might fit, but since the Amazon page is for several styles and only promises to fit the SM-R732 it's hard to say if this one will work. It would be really nice if you could do a follow-up with some options for the SM-R732t. Thanks!
  • I have the tmobile classic. Every "standard" 20mm band has fit with no issues.
  • The leather S2 Classic band is $19.99 at Best Buy, $40 off the normal $59.99 price. I picked up a brown one today.
  • isn't the watch itself already an accessory for my phone?
  • Yeah but wouldn't you want an accessory for your accessory? You can even get a case or extra charger for the wireless headphones and then have an accessory for your accessory's accessory.
  • How do you guys like your S2? Do you find it useful?
    I wore the lg urbane for almost a year but finally sold it...I found limited use, hated having to charge yet another device daily and Google Voice did not work (most times it would say that it was offline). Posted via the Android Central App
  • I like the notification feature of the Gear S2 because it's handy to see who's calling me or texting without my phone out of my pocket. But you can get that same feature plus 3-4 days of battery life from a $30 Martian Notifier. What the 3G and 4G versions of the S2 bring to the table is that they are themselves a smartphone. If I forget my phone at home I still have access to my messages and still have the ability to make emergency calls directly from my watch. Battery life sucks when you use it as a phone but it's a nice security blanket feature.
  • I like mine so far, but I've only been using it for 1 full day. Mine isn't the 3g so I need my phone for it to work properly. I'm not sure the added cost is worth the slight chance that I might need to make a phone call on my phone, so that wasn't a big deal for me. However, I've had to get used to using the native Samsung apps again so that the email and text apps work properly on the watch. That's not a huge deal, but if you're somebody who absolutely has to use Textra or Inbox (for example) that might be a deal breaker. S Voice on the watch has worked very well so far, I used it to send a text message to my wife while I was driving (using a device while driving can get you a ticket here in California).
  • What's with all these recycled articles? Is AC broke? Is everyone fired?
  • "wireless charging docks mean there's no need to tediously plug in your Gear S2 or Gear S2 Classic every night" Yeah, plugging a Micro USB plug directly into my Gear S2 Watch is something I'd love to stop doing...
