Samsung Gear S2 Classic review

 

And now, new colors to get excited about...

Classy, understated design ; Unique, clever rotating bezel ; Works with all Android 4.4 phones

Some features still Samsung-only ; Lack of apps

Where the Samsung Gear S2 proper proves the concept for the firm's impressive sixth – yes, its sixth – take on the smartwatch, the Gear S2 Classic proves it can make a chic watch you'll honestly want to buy.

Samsung Gear S2 & Gear S2 Classic review - hands on

 

Samsung's first circular smartwatches are beautiful examples of software matching design

Even at this early stage, however, the Gear S2 is looking very promising. Tizen has genuinely come into its own as a wearable OS, with well-thought out user interface and interaction designed to compliment the circular display and comprehensive first-...

Samsung Gear S2 Classic

 

The Samsung Gear S2 Classic smartwatch upgrades the original with a sleek stainless steel case and a leather wristband, but the same drawbacks remain.

Sleek design. Sharp display. Unique rotating bezel. Intuitive UI.

Mediocre app selection. Weak voice recognition.

Conclusions The Samsung Gear S2 Classic is simply a sleeker version of the rubbery original. It looks and feels nice, and Tizen is easier to navigate than any other smartwatch OS. Unfortunately, the Classic also suffers from the same issues as its...

Samsung Gear S2 Classic (black)

 

Samsung's Gear S2 debuted last year at at the IFA show in late August. It's a safe bet that the Gear S3 unveiling could happen at the same show this year. In the meantime, earlier this year, Samsung introduced the Samsung Gear S2 3G -- a close copy of...

The Gear S2 has an eye-catching design, a clever rotating bezel that's actually useful, beautiful display, solid health tracking and slightly better battery life than other high-end smartwatches. Plus, it works with a variety of Android phones.

Fewer available apps or seamless connected services than Android Wear and Apple Watch; no speakerphone; S-Voice commands work, but not as well as they could; not compatible with iPhone.

Samsung's newest smartwatch reinvents itself with a whole new look and feel to create one of the best-designed wrist gadgets around -- but it still lacks the apps to set it above the competition.
