Pros Supports mobile payment, good value, looks greatEasy to use, great display, impressive battery lifeFantastic display, tons of fitness tracking features, smart functionsEasy to use, great display, best variety of trackable workoutsSmaller than the S3, waterproof, great for fitness tracking
Cons Touchscreen didn’t seem terribly responsive, HR monitor wasn’t terribly accurate in our testsGiant bezel, could have more smart functionsPricey, so-so battery lifeSlow to charge, limited app compatibilityNo built-in speaker, reduced set of smart functions
Bottom Line If you want a great value option, but are looking to pay a bit more to upgrade, then the C2 might be the watch for youIf you don’t mind the rather ostentatious size, the Galaxy is one of the best watches we have seen so farIf you want a top-notch watch to pair with your iPhone, the Series 5 is the best you can getGreat for Samsung phones, pleasing aesthetics, almost the bestFor those that found the flagship Gear S3 to cumbersome, the Gear Sport is a smaller version that focused more on fitness tracking than smart functions
