How To Reset Samsung Gear S2

Samsung Gear S2 is a smartwatch series from Samsung. The first series was released in 2014 and featured a rotating bezel, called Gear Aton. In 2015, another model, called Gear Classic was released, this time with a fixed bezel.

Both of these models were very popular due to their sleekness and/or lack of bezel. Since then, Samsung has released more models in the series with varying degrees of wearability.
