Samsung S Gear Review – Futuristic gimmick





The Samsung Gear S is a stranger in our midst. Because of its beautiful, curve screen it looks futuristic and so the ministry feels also. Thanks to a SIM card, WiFi and GPS capability to work largely independently and even calls and text messages can not connect to a phone. Nevertheless, there are significant weaknesses; the price is high and you need a Samsung smartphone with Samsung’s own firmware. Moreover, the closure works moderate and had the software a little better. The Gear S has in daily use a lot like a gimmick, but a gimmick with a futuristic look. It is clearly more a gadget than a wrist watch.

You can leave it to Samsung to find the extremes of what a product should be and how big it is. A familiar example is the first Galaxy Note in 2011, a then ridiculously large smartphone. The Galaxy K Zoom smartphone, a cross between a smartphone and a compact camera, is an example of a limb from the stables of Samsung.

The youngest member of the series is called Samsung Gear S. Gear line now comprises more than a year and Samsung has it already several models released, but the Gear S is equally different. First, he has a curved screen and secondly that screen with two “pretty big for a watch. To top it all off the smart watch not only has WiFi but also a SIM card slot for its own connection to 2G or 3G.

So it is a quirky smart watch and Tweakers therefore could not wait for it this Gear S could do the wrist and it could not walk because of how it actually works with such a smart watch and what can you do with it?
