Samsung Gear S2 Review

Key features

The Samsung Gear S2 has some excellent positive changes including intuitive software and compatibility with rival Android smartphones. Samsung Gear S2 is round in shape with two buttons, along with a rotating bezel for easy navigation through the Tizen interface. It has a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display with resolution of 360x360 and this produces a pixel density of 302 pixels per inch. It works on the Tizen OS and boasts a dozen screens with separate areas for notification and apps.

Introduction

The Samsung Gear S2 is the latest smartwatch from Samsung. It has some revolutionary additions to its design and functionality to offer you a complete smartwatch experience. The round shape with the attractive (and customizable) face is attention garnering and the rotating bezel allows you to navigate through the apps and the notifications in a structured manner. The Super AMOLED screen is crisp and the display is fantastic. The Samsung Gear S2 is able to track your movements accurately and also monitors your health : it tracks daily activities, water vs caffeine intake and heart rate. It sends motivational messages from time to time (when you are for instance sitting in one place for some time) and keeps you healthy. With loads of apps to help you get the best out of this smartwatch and long battery life, Samsung Gear S2 is geared up for performance.

How accurate is it ?

Accuracy is one of the major features of the Samsung Gear S2. Not only do you get accurate counting of your steps but location mapping is also largely error-free. There is no Samsung Gear S2 GPS but there is automatic tracking of activities and calories burned.

How long does it take to charge ?

The Samsung Gear S2 comes with a charging dock and makes charging the battery easier. Whenever the battery dies down, simply attach the watch to the charging dock. While overnight charging is not required, a full charge may take a couple of hours.

How long does its battery last ?

The Samsung Gear S2 GPS has a 250mAh battery that lasts more than some of the other smartwatches you may want to compare : Samsung Gear S2 vs Apple watch, Samsung Gear S2 vs Moto 360 and Samsung Gear S2 vs Huawei watch. The battery runs from anywhere between 2 and 5 days but that depends on your usage.

Is it waterproof ?

Samsung Gear S2 is a waterproof watch and it can resist water up to 1 metre for 30 minutes.

Conclusion: Should I buy it ?

The Samsung Gear S2 is the best smartwatch that the Korean company has come up with so far. The rotating bezel is one of the highlights of this product and allows you to access the functionalities of the watch on the tiny screen. The hardware and the software run in compatible mode, and there are enough apps for you to use. It has a great look and you should attract quite some attention when you go out wearing your Gear S2 smartwatch. The Samsung Gear S2 price starts at around CAD451 and it is great value for money.
