Samsung Gear S2

Samsung gets a lot right with their first round face smartwatch, including a unique and useful input method, but the limited applications that currently support the Samsung Gear S2 is what may ultimately give the edge to the competition.

What we like

-Accessible and durable design
-Premium version available for those who want it, at a price
-Manageable size makes it suitable for most wrists
-Unique input method with rotating bezel is useful
-Battery life is quite impressive
-Good display experience
-Smooth performance

What we don't like

-Limited application support is a let down
-No auto brightness setting with the display
