“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.”
“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.”
“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 disappearing from the shelves, this is still the best Samsung watch… but not much of a step forward.”
