This review is based on the Gear S2 Sport/Dark Grey edition, not the classic. I also own a more formal LG Watch Urbane which is an Android Wear based watch. The Gear S2 uses a different operating system known as Tizen.
NOTIFICATIONS – THE MAIN REASON I WANT A SMART WATCH
One thing I was concerned about was whether or not I could use my preferred text messaging app (Textra) as opposed to the stock SMS messaging app and still get notifications. The answer is YES, you can. You can also reply using the limited reply methods available for text messages.
In fact, you can direct any notification that normally appears at the top of your Android phone to the Gear S2 (e.g. corporate email, Gmail, etc.). The Gear phone app lets you turn notifications on and off on a per app basis. So – turn on your SMS program, turn off the ones you don’t want showing up on your watch.
You’ll want to limit what goes to the watch because it will get crowded and the interface isn’t the best for managing lots of notifications (see below).
You interact with the watch by touching the screen or the watch’s round bezel. Despite the tiny on screen buttons, my regular fingers always seem to hit the right button. You can talk to the watch as well. For example, you can wake it up with a custom phrase (e.g. “Hey Gear”) and then make various requests via S-Voice (not Google’s voice system, unfortunately). I found the voice recognition “acceptable” – not great. Personally, I’m not big on talking to my watch.
To read a full message, you tap on the message and it switches to a mode that lets you scroll down through the whole message using your finger or the wheel.
To take action on a message, you tap the side of the screen and rotate the ring to pick reply, dismiss, save, actually delete the message, etc. then tap on the button. You can also just tap on the button without selecting it with the ring. I seem to be getting handy at moving through the menus quickly the more I use it. It’s just not as simple as the basic swipe-away used in Android Wear which is very effective.
You can also send messages using its “buddy” feature. You select the buddy from your address book, then the phone number. You can then call them or send a text. If you choose to send a text, you are given three options: speak it, use one of the canned responses or send an Emoji. The canned responses can be edited so you can add your own – that’s nice. As for calling, you’ll need to pull at your phone to actually talk.
It’s got two buttons on the side. One for BACK and one for HOME. Here’s some insider info: You can program the HOME button so that if you press it twice, it performs a custom action (e.g. open the BUDDY message sending tool).
Here’s the Achilles heel. Android Wear has MANY more apps. Samsung has an “app store” but it pathetic in comparison to the mass of Android Wear apps in the play store. The question is – does it matter? The Gear S2 has all the basics and will deliver your full suite of notifications. I do find myself missing my more robust AW messaging app (Coffee) and Evernote among others. Compared to AW, you aren’t going to find loads of watch faces for the Gear S2 either.
The Gear S2’s screen is gorgeous. High resolution, beautiful color rendition. Compared to the Urbane, which I believe has the best screen of the AW watches out now (10/2015), the winner is the Gear S2. Not that the Urbane is bad, it’s that the Gear tops it.
Like AW, the Gear S2 has an ambient mode where the watch face is always active even when you’re not looking at it. It just shows the clock hands or the digital time until you bring your wrist up to look at it – then it fills the screen with the complete watch face.
There is no speaker on this watch. You can’t make calls on the watch alone. The watch alerts you with vibrations which have two intensity settings. I am using the lower setting and getting used to the light buzz. I found the high setting too loud. You could hear it buzzing.
I have relatively thin wrists and this is the only watch to date that doesn’t border on ridiculous when I’m wearing it. My Urbane is right on the line because it’s so thick but it looks like a real watch so I don’t think people see it as a T.V. strapped to my wrist. If you have thin to moderate wrists, the Gear S2 is the way to go. Looks good and not out of place.
The watch comes with 4 proprietary, same-color bands of different lengths that you can mix and match. They unhook but it takes some effort. I am using one small and one large band to get just the right fit. You can use both small or both large. I found that using both large was just too big. I was in the last hole. Both small… way too small.
I’ve had no problem with the watch easily making it from morning to bedtime and having at least 25% to spare. That’s with higher “I just got a new toy” usage (I’ve had the watch for a week)
Android Wear is the better interface and so many more apps but the Gear S2 is better looking (physically and the screen) especially on a smaller wrist. The Gear S2 really nailed the interaction method with the rotating dial. I wish you could marry the two into one watch!
What will I be wearing? The Gear S2 as an everyday watch and the Urbane for more dressy occasions, when I feel like a slightly upscale look or when I just need the more robust apps available in AW.
I’m giving it four stars. I’ll raise it to five if the number of available apps increases allowing for more customization and functionality.
MY TIP… You can reorder the main screens by touch-holding the screens and deleting/adding back the screens in the order you want. I found the default order of the main screens less than appealing until I discovered you can reorder them (e.g. I didn’t need S-Health as a primary screen). It’s not the greatest system to rearrange the screens but it can be done creating a more personalized experience.
Oh – I’m not showing as a verified buyer because I actually bought it at a local retailer. Since it’s a watch, I wanted the ability to easily return it locally if it didn’t work out. Prices are the same. I love Amazon!
(one photo shows it with the LG Urbane)
Hope someone finds this useful. Feel free to comment/question.
- Looks Nice. Screen is awesome. Next to the Urbane, this screen is just more vibrant and rich. The Urbane due to it's size looks cartoony.
- Notification customization works really quickly. You can customize the apps on your phone that trigger notifications on your watch. These notification come through fast and allow you to respond (if a watch app exists, say for an email or text) or if a native watch app doesn't exist yet for something you are notified about, it will allow you to tap a button to call up the activity on your phone. (I have facebook setup to send notifications. Once I open the notification, I can tap a button on the watch and have the FB app open to the post on my phone so I can respond from there.) It's pretty nice. I've had pictures attached to texts appear in notifications and they look pretty darn good.
- Battery life. After a full day of use from 8 am to 11:30 pm, I had 3% left and it was still working - Now that may sound bad since you are supposed to get 2-3 days out of the watch, but this was during my first day 'VERY heavy' use phase - I won't be hammering the watch that hard again. I did everything with it, Navigation, emails, heart rate monitor, etc, etc. I expect to get much better performance once I'm not looking at it every 2 minutes.
- Responsiveness - EVERY time I lift my wrist, this thing lights up. EVERY time. With the LG Urbane, there were times I had to manually hit the button because the wrist triggering didn't work. Not a lick of sluggishness in any activity I've done so far.
-Voice activation works as well as voice activation can. - People say they may miss 'hello google' but with the URBANE, when I said "Hello Google" to activate voice activities, it work very well, BUT - my nearby phone was also activated. Using S-voice, I was able to record an alternate wakeup message. So now I say 'Hello Watch' to get S-voice going on my watch, or "Hello Google" to get voice activities started on my phone. It's also very responsive. I've sent full texts, Initiated navigation, and sent emails without using my hands, and the watch picked the info up pretty well without errors.
-step tracking when compared to my fitbit, I think this watch is a bit more accurate. (less generous in the steps it says I did.) Unsure about heart rate monitoring. It seems to work fine.
- Answering or placing calls is pretty easy from the watch, however you have to use BT headphones (haven't tried this yet) or your phone itself to actually talk.
- You can store and play mp3's from the watch without your phone if you have Bluetooth headphones, OR you can use the watch to control your MP3 player on your phone.
- It also has NFC for future electronic payment options.
- You can initiate a Map search and start navigation from the watch without having to take out your phone. I was unable to figure out how to do this with Android wear on the LG Urbane. I'd have to start the navigation on the phone and beam it to the Urbane. Doing everything from the watch was pretty nice.
- Plenty of watch face choices currently exist in the store. Many free. Good default faces come native to the watch already.
- Wireless charging works flawlessly - a magnet holds the watch in place.
-Replaceable bands. Picture shows this band:
- Navigation uses an app call 'here maps' that's a bit of a different experience from Google maps which I am used to. It still worked well, so no complaints there.
- # of apps in the store for Gear S2 is currently limited. That should change in the future.
- Need something to track sleep - Currently no app exists to do this using this watch. Not a deal breaker for me.
- Be great to have a watch face customizer.
- No speaker - Meh - I don't think I'd want to listen to music OR a call with a watch speaker anyway.
- Currently does not support being able to add a reminder from the watch. You can add alarms, but not reminders. I hope that will change with a software update.
- Would love to have a dashboard widget for my phone that shows battery life of the watch. Currently this info is embedded in the GEAR app.
- Tighter Integration with S-HEALTH (Samsung's "Google FIT" equivalent) would be nice- This might be the place to put sleep tracking integration - And I'd love to be able to trigger heart rate monitoring directly from the app without touching the watch. Currently when you try, it defaults to the in-phone heart rate monitor. It would be nice to have an option to choose which monitor to use. S-HEALTH already allows you to filter steps by watch/phone so they've already make 'steps' in that direction.
- Charging LED on the base is bright - you will need to point it away from you or it may actually keep you up.
That's basically all I know now. I'll update if I see fit. Bottom line - It's a smartwatch that looks like a regular watch and actually delivers performance that doesn't make me regret the $100+ dollar more I spent for it over the LG Urbane. Get one.
