Samsung has launched a wearables pop-up experience to introduce UK customers to its latest smartwatch.
The manufacturer has opened an experimental pop-up in Westfield White City in London, aimed at showcasing the manufacturer’s Gear S2 smartwatch to consumers, as well as unveiling devices new to the UK market.
Samsung explained that it’s eager to show customers how the wearable can fit into everyday life. The manufacturer explained it will also use the studio to test Samsung Pay in the UK for the first time, enabling visitors to try out the payments service using the Gear S2.
