Samsung’s new Gear S2 smartwatch has been available for a few weeks now, with U.S. sales commencing at the beginning of October. While we don’t have any sales figures of the smartwatch in the United States at the moment, residents of South Korea have really taken a liking to the device. According to a report from The Korea Herald, Samsung has been selling around 2,000 Gear S2 devices daily, which is double what the company sold for the original Gear S.

The report states that of the three Gear S2 models (Gear S2, Gear S2 Classic, Gear S2 with 3G), the 3G-capable variant accounts for roughly half of the daily sales, with the other two types taking up the other half. Samsung has already sold through its initial inventory of the Gear S2 Classic, as well.
