+ VIDEO The first telecom operator in South Korea this week launching a standalone version of the clock connected Samsung Gear S2. It allows you to make and receive calls without having to be connected to a smart phone.
Call directly with his watch so far remains a dream since the use of a smartphone is still required in most cases to take or make a call. But this could soon become reality. SK Telecom, the leading South Korean operator, will launch Tuesday a specific version of the Samsung smart watch Gear 2. And it presents the particularity of not being strictly a watch connected since it does not require d being connected to a smart phone to make a call, said SK Telecom.
While some watch models with SIM cards already exist and have generally not met a real success, it’s probably the first time a more mainstream model shows connected will be widely distributed by an operator.
Models Gear S2 standard available since October must, like any other, be connected to a smart phone via Bluetooth to be able to make or receive a phone call. It would be more the case in the future as indeed showed advertising SK Telecom posted there about a month. But at the time it was only a project.

First inconclusive models
This announcement confirms a rumor that appeared repeatedly for nearly a year and a half and now seems set to continue. By April 2014 Indeed, several South Korean specialty sites evoked that SK Telecom and Samsung working on such a model.
The idea was to develop a watch running Tizen (the system developed by Samsumg and used by it for its latest generation of connected watches) and which would have its own SIM card. But if Samsung has introduced a late model 2014 (the Samsung Gear S), its success was not to go because it was a large size (it is equipped with a 2-inch screen) and then considered a limited autonomy (just one day alone use). Above all, it always required the presence of a smart phone for some of its functions.
