Samsung Gear Sport review

 

Much of the same in a smaller package

Sleeker design ; Offline Spotify playback ; Samsung health is effective

Poor exercise tracking ; GPS performance erratic ; Heart rate monitor not effective

The Gear Sport is a fine smartwatch - but fine in the sense of average, not luxury. It does almost precisely what its predecessor does in a slightly sleeker and more water-resistant way, but lowers the battery life somewhat. With the older model...

Samsung Gear Sport review: Health-tracking in a compact and capable package

 

If you're looking for a smartwatch to go with your Android device that also happens to be a great fitness and activity tracker, the Samsung Gear Sport

Nice design ; Good sports tracking features ; Intuitive user interface and charger design ; Rotating bezel is a major plus ; Waterproof to 50m

Lack of third-party apps still an issue ; Not great for iPhone users ; Sleep tracking is hit and miss ; Apps can take too long to load

Smartwatches tend to be aimed at style or fitness but Samsung has done a decent jb of combining the two with the Gear Sport. Read our full review.

Samsung Gear Sport review: Gear Sport to get SmartThings app

 

The Gear Sport is Samsung's first fully waterproof smartwatch, but it falls short of being a proper multisport watch

Excellent display ; Offline Spotify playback ; Swimproof

Not many third-party apps ; No support for external heart rate sensors ; Expensive

My advice would therefore be to buy the Gear Fit2 Pro if you want a brilliant Samsung fitness tracker that does it all. If you’re not fussed about swimming with your smartwatch and want something that looks more sophisticated then go for the older but...

Samsung Gear Sport review

 

Is this smaller, sleeker Gear a serious smartwatch contender?

Spinning bezel interface is excellent ; Punchy screen ; Versatile activity tracking ; Swim-certified water resistance

Claimed battery life is ambitious ; Fewer apps than Wear or Apple Watch

A fine all-rounder with one of the best smartwatch interfaces around, but it still lacks the Apple Watch’s apps and versatility

Samsung Gear Sport review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Gear Sport is the latest smartwatch from Samsung. It's got an impressive list of features, and the now familiar rotating bezel for flicking through menus. But how does it improve on its predecessors? We took this smartwatch for a spin - read our...

Samsung Gear Sport review: firmware update to add SmartThings support

 

Another top quality smartwatch from Samsung but it falls just short of multisport greatness

With the exception of its failure to get a GPS fix in central London, there’s nothing inherently wrong with the Gear Sport. It looks good, has an outstanding display and battery life is solid. At £299, it’s also in line with many of its rivals like the...

Samsung Gear Sport review: A versatile fitness-first smartwatch

 

The Gear Sport is a jack of many trades and master of few. Samsung stuffed the smartwatch with an ambitious array of features -- from fitness, calorie and sleep-tracking to smart home control, contactless payments, music playback and more. Some of...

Attractive case ; Useful rotating bezel ; Bright, colorful screen ; Four-day battery

Unreliable sleep tracking ; New calorie tracking feature doesn’t feel complete

Samsung Gear Sport review

 

The excellent Samsung Gear Sport is feature-rich, slim, stylish, and comfortable.

Bright, colorful screen ; Good battery life ; Slim and comfortable ; Solid performance ; Great software experience with rotating bezel

Lack of third-party apps ; Music transfer is tricky without Spotify

The Samsung Gear Sport is great for people who want a feature-rich smartwatch that’s slim, lightweight, and comfortable.

Review: Samsung Gear Sport

 

A long-lasting, easy-to-use, fitness-minded smartwatch.

One of the best smartwatch interfaces around with a fantastic rotating bezel. Waterproof up to 50m. Offline Spotify support. Battery life can last days. Fitness tracking with Samsung health is robust and useful. Great notification support. Has GPS,...

Untethered Spotify use can kill the battery quickly. Not the prettiest design. Silicone watch strap feels cheap (but is replaceable). No LTE support. 4GB storage may not be enough if you like to sync a lot of music. S Voice assistant isn’t very useful.
