Review: Samsung Smartwatch Gear S2

Samsung finally relented and decided to create a smartwatch clock with circular format. The S2 is the second generation of smart watch, a South Korean with interesting news in regards to your predecessor, but that has a price a bit disheartening to the national market.

In addition to the visual aspect, several features of the Citizen-based operating system are designed to work with the circular frame, the main novelty of this smartwatch clock. Physical buttons complement the actions of the clock, which is still equipped with a beautiful Super AMOLED display. Let’s see how the Gear S2 if left in our analysis?

The second generation of Gear S brought a design more familiar to consumers. Instead of inheriting the form that accompanies the wrist-construction that was present in the predecessor, the Gear had the traditional circular design S2 found usually in accessories in this category.

This is not exactly a novelty for the VINTAGENOWTRENDING, since options such as the Casio classic watches, moto 360 and the LG Watch Urbane have this look. However, the Gear S2 brings as featured in relation to competitors an interesting circular frame, which helps in navigation by the interface and provides a host of new options for users and developers of apps for that system.

The smart watch from Samsung also has two physical buttons, with the function of “return” and another that serves as “Home”. In addition, the Gear S2 is built in stainless steel and is water and dust resistant, a feature virtually indispensable for this category.

Customization

In Brazil, the Gear S2 is available in two different formats: Classic (classic) and sports (sport). The classic option is more refined, featuring a sophisticated design – especially in the circular frame, which has a beautiful texture – with a leather strap. Already the sports model, which we use in our analysis, get silicone bracelet interchangeable and can be exchanged if necessary or as the taste of the user.

Screen

Samsung kept the quality in the second generation, equipping the Gear S2 with a beautiful Super AMOLED screen, one of the main highlights of the device. In addition to offering a great quality picture, especially when there are black or darker colors, the technology ensures a good energy saving, being one of the factors that guarantee the life of a full load for up to a day and a half.

The variety of custom faces – the clock dials – is another advantage for those who like to change the face of the smartwatch clock. There are several options available and many other can still be downloaded. The sensitivity of the small display is also very good, and the adjustment of brightness the screen preview under strong light.

Interface

Tizen version used by Samsung is one of the biggest highlights of the Gear S2. She has been specially developed to work with the circular frame, offering a quick and intuitive navigation. As is the case in some mobile operating systems, this clock also has an area that concentrates the applications, making it easy to search through the available options.

There are a wide variety of widgets available – and many others can be downloaded – and multiple applications can leverage notifications displayed through the smartwatch clock. However, the variety of apps in the store of the Samsung still isn’t big enough, simply more dials or apps well.

Performance

The Gear S2 performs with tranquility all proposed activities. The hardware that the team can handle, without providing slowness or delays in the interface or in applications that are running. In our tests, the pedometer was fairly accurate, and is very easy to keep track of physical activity with the help of this clock via S Health.

We can say the same about the heart rate sensor, which works with enough quality. As a central notifications, the Gear S2 also meets with quality demand, warning of precisely when messages arrive at the unit synchronized.

Another advantage is the compatibility with various devices, since now it is no longer necessary to connect the watch with a smartphone from Samsung. The compatibility list is still not very extensive, but tends to grow as the South Korean enable more devices. The connection via Bluetooth on various devices is easy and quick to be held, requiring only the app Samsung Gear.

Battery

Although still far from ideal, the Gear S2 meets the promised and hold quiet a day and a half away from the outlets. Unlike your predecessor, the now loading works by induction, eliminating the need to connect wires to the clock.

However, the charger base unfortunately is indispensable, a problem nothing nice for anyone who needs a quick charge and is without the attachment. At least the loading is very fast. In just over 1 hour, the S2 100% filled Gear.

Is It Worth It?

The Gear S2 is an excellent option on some models equipped with Android Wear. With the expansion of compatibility, this watch becomes an even stronger competitor. However, pay the price of a top-of-the-line unit in a watch is not a luxury for any consumer.

The high cost is not an exclusivity of Gear S2, but there are models with the OS from Google with the same functionality that cost at least half the price. For the amount charged, is difficult to justify the investment in this appliance.
