You ideally get to try on a smartwatch before you buy it, but that's seldom easy -- you can't exactly rip a store's security device off and strap on the watch for a minute. Samsung thinks it can give you the next-closest thing, though. It recently released an experience app for Android that not only gives you a feel for the Gear S2's interface and apps, but includes an augmented reality view that shows what the circular smartwatch looks like on your wrist. You can even share a snapshot to get a second opinion. It's still not going to be the same as feeling steel on skin, but you'll at least know whether or not you're making a fashion faux pas.
