Samsung Gear Sport

 

Samsung Gear Sport review: Samsung's latest wearable does a good job of the sports side but its smartwatch smarts are lacking.

Accurate GPS/GLONASS ; Rotating bezel interface is still great ; Spotify offline playback ; Good activity tracking

Shortage of Tizen apps ; No Bluetooth HRMs ; S Voice is forgettable ; Limited Samsung Pay support

The Gear Sport gets the sports side right – but the smartwatch smarts are lacking.

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

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.

Samsung Gear Sport

 

The Samsung Gear Sport is a Tizen-based smartwatch with a fitness focus that gives Android Wear a run for its money.

Slim, swim-friendly design. Works with standard watch bands. Good battery life. Solid third-party app selection. Can play offline Spotify playlists.

Requires multiple phone apps. Mixed fitness tracking performance in testing.

Bottom Line: The Samsung Gear Sport is a Tizen-based smartwatch with a fitness focus that gives Android Wear a run for its money.

Samsung Gear Sport review: running in circles

 

Samsung's latest smartwatch is good at the basics, but lacks excitement

Watch-like design ; Vibrant display ; Fun interface

Bulky dimensions ; Few third-party app options ; S Voice is useless

But all of those things also apply to the two-year-old Gear S2, which makes the Gear Sport far less impressive at the end of 2017. Perhaps smartwatches have matured enough that we shouldn’t expect massive leaps every year (this can certainly be said...

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

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 is a very compelling device to consider.

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 India review

 

Much of the same in a smaller package

Great design ; Vibrant OLED screen

Poor battery life ; Redundant S-Voice instead of Bixby

While the Samsung Gear Sport manages to do the basics just fine like getting the step count data to track that odd run very well, to all manner of notifications; there are so many tiny bits throughout the device that really spoil the experience.

Samsung Gear Sport Review

 

The smartwatch never had it easy. On the one hand, offer too small a list of skills and people question your value; on the other, do too much and the resulting complexity can overwhelm the wrist. Perhaps the Samsung Gear Sport, therefore, signposts the...

Solid set of fitness-related features ; Samsung Pay is convenient ; Circular touchscreen and scroll wheel easy to use ; Standard 20mm straps

Underwhelming design ; No Samsung Pay MST ; GPS is a battery hog
