Samsung's new Gear S2 smartwatch is now available, and while it doesn't support a standardized watch band connection it is designed for easy swapping if you do have a properly-designed replacement. Whether you just want to switch between the two sets of bands — large and small — included in the box or have a different style to use, it's a simple process.
As we show in the video above, it takes barely any time to take out the pre-installed bands and replace them with others. To remove a band, flip the watch over and look for the small clip portion where the band meets the body of the watch. Pull that clip away from the watch body with your fingernail, then pull the band toward you — don't try to pull it directly away from the body, it won't come off that way.
Once you have one of the two sides removed you'll get a better feel for the mechanism — it's simply a thin horizontal slot with a couple of pins in it to keep things locked into place. To put another band on the watch, just slide it up into the slot until you hear a click and see the clip pushed into place. You'll be able to tug down on the band and it'll stay put.
As a quick note, notice that this is for the standard Gear S2 with the rubber band, not the Gear S2 Classic — that model has a more standard lug configuration that can take a wider variety of bands, both from Samsung and other manufacturers.
