Samsung Gear S2

This is one of those rare cases when the South Korean giant Samsung jumped over its head. Smart Watch Gear S2 is the embodiment of elegance and hidden functionality. Favorite thing about this piece is its rotating bezel. You can control everything with your finger on the right half of the bezel, which means you will always be able to see the whole AMOLED display, which offers bright and saturated colors. You will have no problem reading your screen on a super sunny day. And, of course, it is water resistant. The watch is equipped with an accelerometer, gyroscope, heart rate sensor and barometer. There’s no GPS, so it’s not going to serve as a proper running watch, despite its sporty styling. However, it will still count your steps and monitor your heart rate throughout the day. All this data can be viewed on your smartphone by downloading the Samsung S Health app.The smart watch operates on Tizen operating system, which, unfortunately, lacks quality applications for now. The Gear S2 comes with a replaceable band, which can be swapped anytime for a new one. And, the Gear S2 is compatible with most Android phones, not necessarily with Samsung’s ones.

Pros:

  • Stunning design;
  • Rotating bezel;
  • AMOLED screen;
  • Simple to navigate

Cons:

  • GPS module feature is for extra cost;
  • Tizen OS lacks quality apps

Expensive
