Samsung Gear Sport Review

The Samsung Gear Sport smartwatch is a dedicated sports watch. Based on many sports users the silicone strap is sweat-friendly and it has a lightweight construction. Compared to the Samsung fitness wearables this one is small and has no LTE connectivity. What we wanted to know is if this is the only thing users liked about this watch. Let us see what others had to say.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • Athletes like the rotating bezel and AMOLED display that is always on. Consumers like the tactile feel of the rotating bezel as it has magnets and makes a distinctive clicking sound.
  • Swimmers love the water-resistance feature as they can use the watch up to 50-meters in water. Most divers find this helpful.
  • Joggers and hikers found using the watch outdoors easy to read in sunlight.
  • Professional sports users found the touchscreen easy to use and responsive.
  • Hikers, cyclists, and joggers found the Spotify great as they can play their favorite tracks offline while exercising.
  • Half marathon runners found the GPS and GLONASS connection great. This helps them with an accurate location and tracking their distance.
  • Another outstanding feature swimmers like is the Speedo app to track their swim.
  • Joggers enjoyed leaving their smartphone at home while running with the GPS and the screen displays all the metrics needed.
  • Most users like the automatic workout tracking and Triathlon uses found it a great help.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • Sports users found the wrist-on gesture awkward at times, but with the always-on display are available to use.
  • When it comes to the microphone that works with the Samsung S Voice it is finicky at times and most users did not find it user-friendly.
  • Even while the fitness tracker has loads of apps, it does lack automation and navigation apps according to backpackers.


If you need a fully functional sports tracker, the Samsung Gear Sport is worth buying. The only thing is that you need to use the Samsung Health to log all your data. The activity tracker works flawlessly, but does fall short in the Tizen OS, as it is limited.
