Samsung Gear S2 Tizen UI walkthrough


The Gear S2 is a fascinating smartwatch. Just as some of us started losing faith in the smartwatch movement as a whole, Samsung proved that there's still much to see from the fledgling category. Coming up with two exquisite new designs, the company has chosen the path of reinventing its entire concept of wearable time pieces, rather than trying to directly upgrade its existing gadgets. And you know what? We believe that's for the better, because what Samsung revealed is probably the very best smartwatch we've seen to date.

The Samsung Gear S2 and Gear S2 classic are not only beautiful and innovative, but they also come with a delightful set of features. As a matter of fact, the Gear S2 has so much functionality, that we decided to make a video about it, and try to encompass all of its major aspects. Enjoy it, and let us know if Samsung's newest smartwatch have reignited your passion for the wrist-computer as well!

Last I checked, the Apple watch had to much functionality and it was suppose to confuse people. What about the "bubbles"? The Apple watch didn't solve any problem so, what does this watch solve? Again, what is innovative about this watch? Rotating dial is no more innovative than the crown. Where is forced touch? Ape watch had all this stuff and more on their first gen watch. This guy has to be the biggest Samdung fanboy I have ever seen.

I think Samsung Gear S2 is to smartwatches as Apple is to smartphones. A quick look at the 3 platforms, show Gear S2 interface is a lot simpler, intutive and the bezel rotation is a pleasure in itself. This time Samsung is focussing on usability with a eye pleasing design.

This watch is the best smart watch out there. it beats the apple garbage watch. everything is super smooth and intuitive. This no longer needs a review is already reviewed itself. Damn Samsung did an excellent job here. Am not even an android fan and I don't have any Sammy's product except their Smart TV, but am getting this watch once it is available.

The guy likes this watch so it makes him a fan? You Apple fans are so condesceding if we dont like what Apple brings to the table. No wearble solves any problems because there never was a problem to begin with. What it does bring to the table of more functions. After all, it is suppose to be a "smart" watch, not a piece of jewlery. It does solve one problem, whether or not its jewelry of tech. This ine actually looks liek both while Apple went the jewelry only route. All you do is troll Samsung. The way this guy is acting? Is exactly the way you fools act over Apple stuff. So he has to be lesser of you because he isnt liking what you like? Like every typical Apple fan I've met, you are all a bunch of condescending hypocrites. He doesn't have to like what you like. Because he likes it, it doesn't make him a fan. He simply just likes it. You fans always want to put someone in some type of category to make up for you own lucid insecurity complex. You all think everyone is so inferior to Apple. Its really sad you guys cant simply enjoy good technology no matter who brings it to the table. You are personally a condescending, hypocritical, self-righteous bastard just like Steve Jobs. You see, Bill Gates wasn't such a person and he is happy living out his life and he is going to die a natural death having had a good life where he didn't treat people like @$$holes simply because they though different than he did. While Jobs was a bitter old man.

Can't blame nctx77. I guess this guy is one of those who spend 20K on Apple watch "i"diot edition and all he is doing now is rubbing the crown and cry.

I think you're jealous because Samsung has a winner and Apple watched everyone for 3 years and made a loser. I realize when a company makes a product for the very first time, the very first model may not be all that great. The very first iPhone to me was junk, as as the very first iPad. The problem is, after all these years the functional of the iPhone and iPad have remained exactly the same. Not to pick on Apple, Android devices functions have also remained mostly the same. Mostly because the form factor has its own limitations. But at least Samsung managed to bring more to the table and thus they are the top selling Android brand and compared to Apple the Galaxy is way better and all the Galaxy device combined do outsell Apple as a single branded "Galaxy" device. Apple had 3 years to watch what other were doing. Their very first device could have ben better. How is it the first iphone did less than even Windows Mobile phones which were on market since 2001? How was the first Ipad so limited after watching other tablets since 1999? How was the Mac so limited after IBM and PC OEM's brought more fully functional devices and computers to market? How is it a company with $200BN not be able to bring a product to market that gives you a jaw-dropping effect? Yet a company with less money keeps doing it over and over. The S6 Edge is beautiful and better than any phone period. Yes it mimic Apple dual glass design, but Samsung made theirs better which dual Gorilla Glass vs Apple who put GG on the front and not on the Back. Covering the gaps on Samsungs phone with external antennas, doesnt interfere with the signals. The Curved design looks better than any iPhone.. But you can address it as being better because Apple didnt do it first or at all. It has ot be a gimmick when Apple didnt do it. using your own rhetoric, what problems did Apple's Watch solve? Because from what I see, it actually created a problem. The same problem all their other products have. How does something that cost so much do so little and yet get praised like King Solomon? Stop being condescending, stop being a hypocrite and stop trolling Samsung. You all have nerve to call anyone a hater. I least I can acknowledge when someone makes a nice looking product with nice features even if its not my favorite brand,

You didn't show to stylize the watch faces. Some watch faces can be customized when you long press to change watch face.

The Gear S2 classic look tight as hell. The only smartwatch I'm willing to blow my $$$ on it so far. Rest is meh... This one is OK, but the Classic is way nicer, imo.

Looks nice but i find the first gear s more practical as i don't like circular displays. S needs an update to make it as smooth as this one.

Nokia N9 is better because it does not have back and home button.
