Italians can now get a Samsung Gear S2 Classic 3G Smartwatch with eSIM on board

Gear S2 3G smartwatchTIM (Telecom Italia Mobile) and Samsung, in collaboration with Gemalto, have launched the first smartwatch in Italy with an integrated embedded SIM (eSIM), representing an evolution of the SIM Card and mobile devices. Samsung’s Gear S2 Classic 3G Smartwatch is the first wearable device in the world with eSIM, a technological innovation that says the release, ‘marks a further step towards the digital future of the Internet of Things’.

The eSIM makes it possible to connect the device to TIM’s mobile network using a QR code. With Samsung’s Gear S2 Classic 3G Smartwatch you can make calls, send and receive text messages, receive notifications, consult your fitness data (step counter, heart rate monitor, stop watch), read emails and browse social networks in complete freedom wherever you are. Fitted with a Tizen operating system, the smartwatch allows you to navigate and choose different services and screens thanks to a revolving bezel ring.

Gemalto, through its platform, will guarantee the correct management and customization of mobile radio service directly from within the embedded SIM. This initiative, achieved through the collaboration and expertise of TIM, Samsung and Gemalto, highlights the three players’ ability and commitment to contribute to the development of innovative services for the Internet of Things.

Adoption of the eSIM is only the first step in the evolution of the features of the traditional SIM, says Gemalto. This new system allows users to activate and update their subscription to the service remotely, and will then allow the eSIM to be used on other types of devices such as tablets and smartphones.

The companies involved in this project say that users will be able to manage every need on the go through increasingly simple and immediate connectivity tools and TIM’s 4G network. The world of wearables in which Samsung has been investing in recent years represents a strategic technological line within a mobile ecosystem which concerns numerous applications in different areas, from sport to lifestyle and business. The introduction of the eSIM will further contribute to the evolution and spread of this category of devices which is rapidly growing.
