Samsung Gear S2 Review:best smartwatch

Samsung Gear S2 Tizen-OS based smartwatch with a round-dial 

Samsung Gear S2 is the circular, prettier version of the earlier Gear S smartwatch. The Gear S2 is a Tizen OS-based smartwatch that does a lot; tracking health, delivering notifications from the smartphone, and even playing music via Bluetooth headphones.

Samsung's Gear S2 has a unique round design with a rotating bezel for selecting different screens. 

Samsung Gear S2 is much better suited for daily-wear and health-related activities. But do note that the 42 mm dial is not for those with bony wrists, and they should probably try out the slightly smaller Gear S2 Classic before buying. The build quality of the watch is worth its price. I’ve not seen any cracks or paint chipping and the watch has slipped out of my hands quite a few times. Gear S2 has a home and back button, which do exactly what the name suggests, and there’s also a rotating bezel on the top. Just keep moving the bezel to right or left to view the various apps, tabs, etc on the Gear S2. Samsung has kept the modes of interaction, simple and intuitive with this watch, which many will appreciate. 

The new Samsung's Gear S2 is powered by a dual-core Exynos 3250 processor that clocks in at 1GHz. It is backed by 512MB RAM and 4 GB storage. For connectivity it uses Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and WiFi. Its sensors include an accelerometer, gyrometer, HRM, barometer and ambient light sensor. The Samsung Gear S2 is also dust and water proof with its IP68 rating.
