Samsung Smart Watches
Browse the wide selection of Samsung smartwatches available at Staples® to find the right wearable to complement your smartphone. Unlike analog wristwatches, smartwatches have operating systems and run apps in addition to keeping time. They can also double as portable media players, personal digital assistants, and activity trackers. These wrist-worn computers have electronic displays, processors, and internal memory. As a companion device, a smartwatch provides quick access to essential updates by displaying notifications from a paired smartphone.
Choose Between Sport and Classic Samsung Smartwatches Samsung offers a number of smartwatches under its Gear brand. These are stylish wearables with sleek designs. The brand makes models with rectangular and round faces. While round smartwatches look more like regular dress models, rectangular ones are easier to spot as wearable computers. Consider models with leather and stainless steel bands if you want one you can wear to business meetings and dinner parties. Flexible silicone, rubber, and elastomer bands are best for casual and sport smartwatches. If you prefer to switch straps and use those sold by third parties, make sure the smartwatch you pick is compatible with one of the standard watch band sizes. These come in 16, 20, and 22-millimeter widths.
Features to Consider When Comparing Samsung Smartwatches Smartwatches from Samsung use Bluetooth® for pairing with smartphones and Wi-Fi for connecting to the internet. Some models have additional wireless capabilities like GPS, NFC, and 4G LTE. Get a GPS-equipped smartwatch if you are a fitness buff or spend most of the day outdoors. NFC enables Samsung's proprietary payment solution. You need a watch with this feature to use Samsung Pay™. Choose a model with cellular connectivity if you prefer to leave your phone behind while out exercising or running errands. Ease of use is another factor to consider when shopping for smartwatches. Early models of Samsung Gear watches use only touchscreen displays for navigation. With the release of the Samsung Gear S2, the brand introduced rotating bezels to its smartwatches. This makes navigating the operating system easier. Newer models also have side buttons to give users multiple options.
Can You Make Calls From Samsung Smartwatches? You can make and receive calls as well as send text messages right from your Samsung smartwatch as long as it is a model with 4G LTE capabilities. A 4G smartwatch does not depend on a smartphone for cellular and internet connectivity. Its cellular radio gives it full mobile phone capability and requires a data plan. Before ordering a 4G smartwatch, make sure it supports your preferred carrier's network.
Do Samsung Smartwatches Run Android Wear™? While the first Gear watch ran Android Wear, Samsung installed Tizen OS on subsequent models. Tizen is a Linux-based open-source operating system co-developed by Samsung. You can also find the operating system on some smartphones, tablets, and smart TVs.
Are Samsung Smartwatches Compatible With Apple® and Android™ Smartphones? Yes. You can pair Samsung watches with Bluetooth®-enabled devices running Android 4.4 and later and iOS 9.3 and higher. Apple users need at least iPhone® 5 or newer while there is a minimum requirement of 1.5GB RAM for Android devices. Samsung guarantees compatibility between these smartphones and its Gear S2, Gear S3, and Gear 2 watches.
