OCVY – Samsung product users can now be happy because Samsung has launched Gear Sport last year. This gadget, which is a combination of a smartwatch and fitness tracker, is to challenge both Apple in the smartwatch market and Fitbit in the fantastic fitness tracker, 2-in-1 product.
Samsung Gear Sport Design
In terms of design, the Sport Gear looks like another Samsung smartwatch with a round clock face. Just like the Gear S range, the Sport Gear is also equipped with a rotating bezel and two physical buttons. The bezel that can be rotated is indeed one of the advantages of wearable gadgets made by Samsung. The strap made of silicon makes this smartwatch feels very solid while wearing it.
Samsung Sport Gear is equipped with a 1.2-inch AMOLED screen with 360×360 resolution. The wearable screen is still bright enough even when you are in the middle of a sunny day. The touchscreen is also quite responsive.
Samsung Gear Sport Features
Amazingly, Samsung complements the Sport Gear with battery saver features. You will see a warning to activate the feature when the battery is low, which will remove the features of the smartwatch. Of course with the active power saving features, some Sport Gear features will be deactivated until the next charging.
Regarding the hardware, the Sport Gear has a 1GHz processor with 4GB of memory. Unfortunately, Samsung still uses its operating system, Tizen. Indeed, in terms of performance, Tizen can function well. It’s just that, in terms of application, the number of applications for Tizen is still a lot less compared to applications for Google Wear made by Google or Apple’s watchOS.
Samsung Gear Sport with Samsung Health
Sport Gear is also supported by Samsung Health which serves to maintain your health, starting to track the number of steps and other health features. Samsung, who wants to challenge Fitbit with Sport Gear has invested GPS and GLONASS in the Sport Gear. The goal is to ensure that the gadgets can track the user’s location accurately. Sport Gear also has a barometer that can measure altitude.
For types of sports that can be tracked, there are many options you can choose, ranging from running and cycling to pushup and swimming. With the 5ATM water-proof feature, you no longer need to worry about taking tge Sport Gear to swim. You can also use the Speedo application to track your swimming activities.
