has provided the solution to Samsung Electronics for the launch of their
latest Gear S2 smartwatch. Gemalto's solution will allow users to securely
connect to the cellular networks. As a result, they will be able to make
voice and data calls, check emails and notifications, or access applications,
directly from their wrist, without being tethered to their smartphones.

Thewearablesmarket is poised for a rapid growth with worldwide shipments set
to exceed 126 million units by 2019[1]. Many smart wearables are coming to
market, driven by consumer demands for a more convenient and connected
lifestyle. According to a survey conducted across five countries - China,
Germany, South Korea, UK, and the US, 56% of smartphone owners say that
cellular connectivity is an important factor in buying a smartwatch[2].
Samsung Gear S2, which comes in a circular design with unique rotation bezel
and intuitive UX that offers extended battery life of 2-3 days, is optimized
for seamless, everyday use. Consumers will be able to stay connected in a
fun, personalized and secure way, anytime and anywhere.

"This is yet another milestone in our successful
cooperation
with Samsung, following the recent launch of Samsung Pay in Europe,"
said Suzanne Tong-Li, President for Greater China and Korea at Gemalto. "As
the Internet of Things evolves and focus shifts towards smart wearables
that go beyond reporting and monitoring, we will
support
Samsung to design many more innovative products to reach specific markets."
