Samsung Gear S review

 

The Samsung Gear S is a standalone smartwatch ... with some caveats

Slick OS ; Nice AMOLED display ; Can be a standalone phone ; Decent battery life

Large and bulky ; Strap is unwieldy ; Still needs a Samsung phone ; Expensive

The Gear S isn't very comfortable and definitely not a smartwatch for everyone but the device still has a few perks.

Samsung Gear S review: Hands-on

 

The new 3G-toting Samsung Gear S has it all in fits and smarts

Expert review by: Michael Sawh (trustedreviews.com)

Samsung Gear S

 

Big watch, big price, big ambition, but too many little problems

Big, bright screen ; Improved app support ; Good S Health integration

Slightly laggy performance ; Apps still need to be downloaded on phone

Combining the SIM support with the built-in GPS receiver does mean you can use the Samsung Gear S for navigation, as well as running other apps that require both GPS and a data signal.

Samsung Gear S hands-on review

 

We get up close and personal with the 3G-equipped Tizen smartwatch

While the Gear S doesn't follow the common path of most smartwatch makers and uses Samsung's Tizen OS, as opposed to the increasingly common Android Wear, it did impress us.
