Love at first sight is the first impression you get when you see the Gear S2. It’s definitely one of the best smart watches produced, as compared to one’s made in the past. It doesn’t only look stylish in looks but it feels amazing to wear. The fact is, its so sleek and lightweight makes it all the more desirable. Wear it over formals or casuals, it doesn’t matter as it goes well with anything. Although it looks small, you can surely make a style statement with the Gear S2 creating a lasting impression. The eye catchy part of the gear S2 is the rotating bezel. Its the most attractive part of the smartwatch.
Design and Built:
The Gear S2 is one of a kind smart watch known for its durability. The watch made of stainless steel, doesn’t let you feel heavy on the wrist. Its so sleek and comfortable and however hard you firm it on your wrist, it won’t leave any marks on your wrist. There are two types of bands one big and the other small so there won’t be any issue for sizes. The most attractive feature of the Gear S2 is the bezel which is so tempting and makes you feel like you’re looping a Dj’s console without any cds inserted. The rear is protected well for heart rate sensor. The dimensions of the watch are 49.8X42.3mm and the width is 11.4 mm.
Its gives a good feel with high res of 302 ppi and vibrant display of 1.2 inch of super AMOLED Display. Its sharp and colorful and easy to view indoors and outdoors. The screen is well protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Unlike other smartwatches, it runs on the tizen OS which makes it limited to apps and it seems like they’ll take time to develop apps for the watch. It runs on the chipset on the exynos 3250 dual core with 1ghz giving the watch a smoother experience while using apps. It is packed with a 512 RAM and 4 GB ROM to save songs and images. The round bezel which is attractive to the eyes doesn’t consume a dime of the battery and greatly so, the watch saves battery by turning off the light on the screen when taken away from the face and comes back to life when pointed back towards the face.
Below the waist line, the watch doesn’t blink on the screen and at times it acts stubborn and doesn’t turn on the screen even when kept close to the face. Just a minor drawback. The watch is dust resistant and water resistant upto 1.5 meter and 30 mins which is a bonus and functioned well when kept in the bowl of water. The battery is packed with 250 mAh and runs two days without charge and the standby mode is just brilliant keeping the battery alive for more than 10 hours. The touch and bezel compliment each other really well. We wished it came with GPS. Nevertheless, it supports Wi-FI and charges on a doc which is magnetized to the watch and charges wirelessly.
The Gear S2 is a smart buy and is definitely a value for your money. Its rich in display validating the price and proving it is best in its kind of watches variations. It gives you accurate info about your health and will keep you fit and will notify on the go without any disappointments. Looking at the features and what it offers, the price justifies the Gear S2.
