Test: Samsung Gear S2

Fine custom when Samsung challenge Android watches.

New ventures are always refreshing and even before the market for smart watches really picked up speed, at least as much as many people believe, and hope, to challenge Samsung the other with their Gear S2. The most exciting thing here is, of course, among other things, that the clock Gear S2 has round screen, but above all, it uses the operating system OS and not by Tizen Watch, which uses Android Apple or Wear that most other mobile manufacturers adhere to.
It had obviously been the most natural if Samsung like the rest of Android Tillverkare used by Android Wear, but Samsung will see that they can offer something better, instead using the operating system, which they also Tizen used in for example Gear S.

Screen in Gear S2 is active in a power saver mode so you can quickly see what time it is. However, this is a setting that you can customize if you prefer slightly better battery life.
One of the first I react when I start using the watch is that the apps are so well adapted. Apputbudet is in many ways just as limited as the other watches, so if you are looking for a special app chances are small that it exist for Gear S2, but the apps that are, I think, on the other hand, is very well made. They are well adapted for the screen, which I don’t think applies to Android Wear watches with round screen, and the way you use to navigate works well in the system as a whole as well as in individual applications.

Gear S2 uses a new and relatively specific way to control the clock.Just as in other smartklockor is the watch a touch screen, but it’s almost more ring around the dial that you use to navigate between apps, and other features. By spinning the ring so scroll through lists, or choose between rows of different icons that are placed in a circle on the screen. The interface of Tizen is nicely designed for that and you look like a premonition of the next item in a list or how far you have left to browse before the article you read is over. Information is presented well adapted to screen space even if it can get a little frusterad that there is not as much as will fit in a smartklockeskärm, but it belongs to. The clock is not the ultimate for all tasks and sometimes it is simply the easiest to pick up the phone instead of the task you want to do is too demanding. But it is different, of course, is not really Gear S2 from any other smartwatch.
The included apps are available from the start is especially good I think and there counts I among other things address book sorted by Favorites and last contacted the first, which seems logical, and then makes it easy to quickly find the right among others. Good work even SMS app that displays messages, but also allows me to respond. This is done by either load a response (the clock does not have Swedish as the language to choose there), with a preferred phrase, or through an emoji. You can even write on a keyboard on the screen, but it makes you just a few words, for it is of course very fiddly though Samsung has done its best to simplify. It will, for example, up matches at upcoming words and the system is pretty good at right if you miss a single letter.

Among the apps I can find and download it is sometimes a little more difficult to see the benefits. I test such as CNN’s app that displays the latest news, photos and even, but because the image take up much space, and it is only the first 2-3 words of the title that can fit in the screen it becomes not very informative. Otherwise, the system is also good customization. I can customize the information displayed on the watch face, and even appearance. CNN’s app, as well as several others, can even completely replace the dial towards where the latest news from the channel is displayed. Even here, however, it is space, but in Bloomberg’s counterpart appears rather than the Exchange’s share price or value for your own stock portfolio, which work better in context.
It is interesting to watch how the watch, replace the information with the phone. One advantage of Tizen may well be that the clock is relatively independent of the phone, but on the other hand, the information that we want in the clock often coming from your phone so it can also be a disadvantage. In the case of Bloomberg must of course such as acquiring a portfolio in the phone app (Android) to watch then know what to show. This turns out to work smoothly. In the phone app offers a menu item called “Edit Watchlist” and when I made it in the phone it does not take long before it is updated in the watch. Clearly, however, is that it requires a solution from the app developer. American sports channel ESPN have instead chosen to have a special Android app whose sole mission is to sync information from your phone to klockappen.

In other works, I think, the interplay between the Android phone and Tizen-watch at least as good as between an Android phone and an Android watch. Calls and SMS announced so clearly in the clock, but also e-mail and all notifications apps in your phone sends. Of course, you may opt-out notifications from the apps that you don’t feel are relevant in the watch. As with other smartklockor, however, you may have to settle with sort notifications at the app level, so for example, you cannot receive notifications only from certain people in the chattappen you are using.

Generally, you cannot interact with notifications from your phone’s apps and it’s a clear disadvantage with Tizen. Notifications such as Hangouts, the chat application in Android, gets messages not going to answer. To reply, you must pick up the phone. The exceptions are, for example, is email. When you start the watch will help you to set up email accounts, which then end up in Samsung’s own email app on your phone and sends notifications for each new email on your phone, and thereby also in the clock. Moreover, the interaction between the phone and watch, I think still going well. Pictures you take in your phone can be synchronised to the watch automatically as soon as the watch is in charge and the same applies to stored music. Our site does not have its own app, but once you’ve started the music from your phone, you can change the song directly from the watch to it.

If you’re going to try to summarize so capable Tizen as system very good to drive it we are looking for in a smartwatch like this today, but the disadvantages parts clock with most of its competitors, and it is that the number of apps is still small and the battery life is only about a day, which is not compensated for by the number of smart features like the o’clock can contribute.
