Samsung Gear S2 Classic - Black

Samsung Gear S2 Classic

The Samsung Gear S2 Classic looks to take the convenience of the original S2 and improve on it with a premium design and more features. While Samsung has moved on to the S3, we still feel that the S2 Classic has plenty of juice in it. Its affordable price point useful features make it a great pick up for anyone looking for a useful smartwatch for anyone who wants to make the most of their day.

Look and design

The Samsung Gear S2 Classic evokes the classic design of older watches, without leaving behind the aesthetic motifs of digital watches. It’s a precarious balance to maintain, and we feel that the S2 Classic manages it well. The rounded bezel, circular face (which can be customised), analogue design, elegant curves and leather straps combined with a premium finish strikes the perfect balance between classic and modern design. The end result is a stylish watch that fits in any setting. The premium finish and leather straps make the Samsung Gear S2 Classic the perfect fit for a corporate setting. At the same time, the watch will fit in more relaxed venues like parties. Overall, the Gear S2 Classic is a well-made smartwatch that works in any setting.

Health and fitness

We would be remiss to discuss a Samsung smartwatch without looking at health and fitness. One of the main selling points of any smartwatch and especially the S2 is its ability to track your heart rate, steps count and more. So what does this mean for you? Well, if you had those workouts where you feel like you have accomplished a lot, you can back it up with some numbers. But that’s just the start! The S2 Classic comes loaded with fitness apps MapMyRun, Endomodo, and MyFitnessPal, which means you can set goals and organise your workouts to fit your schedule.

Our experience fiddling with these apps has been great. Knowing your goals and how much you accomplished in one workout session somehow motivated us to do even more. Overall, the Samsung Gear S2 Classic is great for anyone interested in getting leaner and fitter. You don’t have to be a gym or running enthusiast to appreciate the Samsung Gear S2 Classic, but knowing how many calories you burnt in a single workout session is great incentive to get out and do more.

Notifications and apps

The Samsung Gear S2 Classic comes with several apps that are useful for our day-to-day activities. While you will not be watching movies, you will be performing several useful functions like calling an uber, consulting Yelp, checking news, and even listening to music. The best part of the smartwatch? If any of the apps are not to your liking, you can always download more apps – you will have to be wary of maxing out the smartwatch’s 4GB internal memory. We generally enjoyed using the apps on the S2 Classic, because it’s incredibly convenient. Simply hold up your wrist and rotate the bezel to get the app you want. However, the smaller, circular screen limits what you can do, especially when compared to a smartphone.

In addition to viewing apps, you will also get notifications, which consist of messages from friends, news alerts and more. Getting notifications on your smartwatch is more convenient than a smartphone, simply because you can’t miss messages that are, quite literally, sent to your wrist. It’s easy, it’s convenient, it’s great to use. However, it’s not perfect because you are looking at a small, circular screen, which means there is only a limited amount of information you can read from it.

Concluding thoughts about the Samsung Gear S2 Classic

The Samsung Gear S2 Classic takes everything the Samsung Gear S2 has and builds on it. The end result is a smartwatch with a premium look and packed with features. From health and fitness to listening to music, there is so much the S2 Classic can do. The volume of useful features and high-quality design in combination with the budget price makes the S2 Classic a must have for people looking for a useful, high-quality smartwatch.
