GEAR S2

SAM­SUNG

Herald Sun - Switched On - - GADGETS & GAMES -

Sam­sung nails the nav­i­ga­tion in its fifth smart­watch. The cir­cu­lar dial on the Gear S2 spins to open no­ti­fi­ca­tions, show wid­gets, and ro­tate through a menu of apps. It’s an in­tu­itive way to in­ter­act with items on its 1.2-inch, 302ppi, round screen, and one that feels well built. The Gear S2 is also light­weight at 47g, wa­ter­proof to 1.5m, and fea­tures a mi­cro­phone for dic­tat­ing mes­sages and replies, and a back but­ton to get you out of an un­ex­pected se­lec­tion. The wi-fi ver­sion fails to in­clude a speaker to take calls, how­ever, and S-Voice has yet to match Siri’s use­ful­ness.
