Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch

Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch

It was time to get a smartwatch.  The first generation has come and gone.  I figured that most of the kinks have been worked out and the proper upgrades have been made, so I ordered the new Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch to go with my Galaxy S5 phone.

First off, I am a bit of a watch nut.  I like the classic look and style of a good watch.  I was a bit worried that a new smart watch would be like the old casio calculator watch.  Big, light, and cheesy.  But it wasn’t…

The Gear 2 has a brushed aluminum case with a good bit of weight and a very comfortable band.  Granted, it is not a Rolex, but it isn’t cheesy at all.

Not being the most tech savvy person on the planet, I was also a little worried that it would be difficult to sync up with my phone and complicated to use.  While I let it charge, I went over the User’s Manual so that I had a clue.

It was easy enough, I just had to go to with my phone and download the app.  After that, it was game on.  I had that baby up and running in no time.

Best Features of the Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch:

  1. I do not have to keep my phone on me to answer it.  I can be out in the garage working on my bike and my phone can be in the house and I still know if someone is calling or texting me.
  2. It works great with my Bluetooth so that I can listen to my favorite tunes as I go about my day.
  3. It keeps track of my steps and heart rate.  More of a novelty for me, but it is interesting.
  4. I can put a bunch of cool watch faces on it.
  5. It tells me what the temperature is.
  6. I like attention, and people are always asking me about it.

So far, I only have a couple of negatives to point out about this watch;

  1. I can not wear it to work.  I work in harsh conditions and I am afraid of breaking it
  2. It is only water resistant up to 1 meter or 3 feet.  It may handle getting damp, but I try not to get it wet, at all.
  3. If I am sweaty, and my finger is damp, the touch screen doesn’t respond.  I have to make sure my finger is totally dry to use it.
  4. I am not used to charging my watches.  The charge lasts about three days and then I have to take it off to recharge it.

Overall, it is a fun little device that comes in more handy than I thought it would.  I would definitely get the Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch again if I had to do it all over again.
