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

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

 

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

 

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: 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: Not quite the multisport wearable we'd hoped for

 

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

  (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: Smartwatch and activity tracker with enterprise-focused functionality

 

While I absolutely loved last year's Gear S3 Frontier , one of the major complaints I heard on a regular basis was that it was too big. We now have the Samsung Gear Sport that brings Tizen 3.0 with a smaller form factor more acceptable to the masses.

Excellent quality stainless steel design ; Brilliant OLED screen ; Rotating bezel and touch user interface ; GPS, Bluetooth, and WiFi connectivity ; Offline music support ; iOS and Android support ; Two day battery life

S Voice is still utterly useless ; No speaker to answer calls
