Samsung Gear Sport review: Smartwatch and activity tracker with enterprise-focused functionality


While I absolutely loved last year's Gear S3 Frontier , one of the major complaints I heard on a regular basis was that it was too big. We now have the Samsung Gear Sport that brings Tizen 3.0 with a smaller form factor more acceptable to the masses.

Excellent quality stainless steel design ; Brilliant OLED screen ; Rotating bezel and touch user interface ; GPS, Bluetooth, and WiFi connectivity ; Offline music support ; iOS and Android support ; Two day battery life

S Voice is still utterly useless ; No speaker to answer calls

Review: Samsung Gear Sport


A long-lasting, easy-to-use, fitness-minded smartwatch.

One of the best smartwatch interfaces around with a fantastic rotating bezel. Waterproof up to 50m. Offline Spotify support. Battery life can last days. Fitness tracking with Samsung health is robust and useful. Great notification support. Has GPS,...

Untethered Spotify use can kill the battery quickly. Not the prettiest design. Silicone watch strap feels cheap (but is replaceable). No LTE support. 4GB storage may not be enough if you like to sync a lot of music. S Voice assistant isn’t very useful.

Samsung Gear Sport review: A versatile fitness-first smartwatch


The Gear Sport is a jack of many trades and master of few. Samsung stuffed the smartwatch with an ambitious array of features -- from fitness, calorie and sleep-tracking to smart home control, contactless payments, music playback and more. Some of...

Attractive case ; Useful rotating bezel ; Bright, colorful screen ; Four-day battery

Unreliable sleep tracking ; New calorie tracking feature doesn’t feel complete

Samsung Gear Sport review


The excellent Samsung Gear Sport is feature-rich, slim, stylish, and comfortable.

Bright, colorful screen ; Good battery life ; Slim and comfortable ; Solid performance ; Great software experience with rotating bezel

Lack of third-party apps ; Music transfer is tricky without Spotify

The Samsung Gear Sport is great for people who want a feature-rich smartwatch that’s slim, lightweight, and comfortable.

Samsung Gear Sport


The Samsung Gear Sport is a Tizen-based smartwatch with a fitness focus that gives Android Wear a run for its money.

Slim, swim-friendly design. Works with standard watch bands. Good battery life. Solid third-party app selection. Can play offline Spotify playlists.

Requires multiple phone apps. Mixed fitness tracking performance in testing.

Bottom Line: The Samsung Gear Sport is a Tizen-based smartwatch with a fitness focus that gives Android Wear a run for its money.

Samsung Gear Sport Review


The smartwatch never had it easy. On the one hand, offer too small a list of skills and people question your value; on the other, do too much and the resulting complexity can overwhelm the wrist. Perhaps the Samsung Gear Sport, therefore, signposts the...

Solid set of fitness-related features ; Samsung Pay is convenient ; Circular touchscreen and scroll wheel easy to use ; Standard 20mm straps

Underwhelming design ; No Samsung Pay MST ; GPS is a battery hog

Samsung Gear Sport review: running in circles


Samsung's latest smartwatch is good at the basics, but lacks excitement

Watch-like design ; Vibrant display ; Fun interface

Bulky dimensions ; Few third-party app options ; S Voice is useless

But all of those things also apply to the two-year-old Gear S2, which makes the Gear Sport far less impressive at the end of 2017. Perhaps smartwatches have matured enough that we shouldn’t expect massive leaps every year (this can certainly be said...

Samsung Gear Sport review: A well-rounded smartwatch for fitness and daily use alike


Our Samsung Gear Sport review takes a look at one of the latest smartwatches from Samsung which, while obviously fitness focused, may just be the best smartwatch I've tested so far.

Sporty design ; Comfortable fit ; Bright, responsive screen ; Great fitness tracking options and accuracy ; Plenty of other apps for normal smartwatch use ; Onboard storage for music ; Decent battery life ; Waterproof to 50M ; Onboard GPS

Requires multiple apps installed on some smartphones ; Some apps only work if associated app installed on smartphone ; Some apps only show last message if sent from same person

Samsung Gear Sport smartwatch Review


The Samsung Gear Sport is the latest member in the Gear series, and we spent a couple of weeks in its company to find out whether it is worth the $300 asking price. Let's dive in.

Bright and beautiful display ; Comfortable to wear ; Fast and responsive interface ; Good battery life ; Spotify with offline music support could be useful

Not great for tracking actual sports ; Vibration feedback could be better ; Strap showing signs of wear only after 2 weeks of use
