Samsung Gear S2: Crafted for Comfort and Style

Samsung smartwatches have been around for quite some time, but none of them have been as well received as Samsung Gear S2.  Even the toughest Samsung critics agree that this smartwatch is intuitive, compatible, and stylishly desirable.Samsung Gear S2 Review

The S2 looks like a Swatch, works nicely even with rival Android smartphones, and is priced competitively MSRP$249.99. For those who are in the market for a smartwatch that will transition from the gym to the office seamlessly delivering a sharp corporate look, an upscale Gear S2 Classic is available MSRP$299.99.

The more elegant Classic range features a ridged bezel, a proper leather strap, and a smaller body combine—and it’s only $50 more expensive than the standard S2 model.

The Gear S2 features a rotating bezel that provides an intuitive and almost addictive manner of interaction with the watch. Thanks to UI design improvements, the S2 allows you to switch between apps, change volume or brightness, or cycle back to notifications even when you haven’t looked down yet. Your finger can control everything on the right half of the bezel, so you’ll always see the entire display.

Samsung Gear S2 also features a sharp and bright 1.2-inch Super AMOLED screen, which is smaller than what you will find on other smartwatches, giving it a retro charm.

The 360 x 360-pixel screen has a pixel density of 302ppi—quite impressive resolution—so you can set the font to the smallest setting to see more notifications or messages on one screen as you scroll.

This added “real estate” on the face of the watch is a benefit for those who want the option of multiple functions displayed at once.
