Hello and welcome to my first tech-upload and my first review of the Gear 2!
As we all know, Samsung was early with a smartwatch, and the first was named “Samsung Galaxy Gear”.
Here’s a picture of it.
So, at first it looks really nice, I do like the frame around the screen that gives a solid feeling to it.
At second look I started to find faults, like camera on the band which was in the way pretty much all the time, and the fact that the battery life was nothing to celebrate.
However, They have made a second generation called “Gear 2” which Iv’e been testing for quite some time now.
It’s pretty much the same concept as the previous one but the major differences is actually everything, the screen, the camera and they also added an IR-sender!
This watch is IP67 water-classified which means it can take som water without stop working.
The Camera quality is actually quite good compared to the 1st gen camera. It can record videos for 15 seconds and you can afterwards watch them either directly in your watch or in your phone after the video has been automatically being transfered.
You can use the watch to call someone but I don’t recommend that because of the poor speaker quality, you have to have a quite surrounding in order to even hear what the other person is saying.
From my experiences the Batterylife is improved and i would say that you can use it for 2 days including having it on sleepmode during night.
Today there’s a new watch out there from Sasmung called the Gear S, which has a curved display and I will make a review of that too if I get the time.
