Overview Samsung Gear Sport Black

Announcement date and market relevance

The new model of smartwatches from the company Samsung was called Samsung Gear Sport Black and was announced in August 2017 (see all new smartwatches 2017). It is released in the Samsung Gear Sport series, there are many other models of smartwatches to choose from, if this something does not suit you.

Operating system and updates

Smartwatch Samsung Gear Sport Black are working “out of the box” under the operating system Tizen version 3. We did not find any information that they received at least some software update.

Before buying, be sure to find out that this smartwatch model supports the version of the smartphone software to which you will be connect. The formal characteristics indicated that the Samsung Gear Sport Black support Android smartphones with version 4.4 and higher, and as well as support the Apple iPhone smartphones with iOS version 9 and higher.

Screen, body and style

Samsung Gear Sport Black is not a small round watch in Black with a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen. In our opinion, this model turned out in the unisex style (suitable for both men and women).

The case has a size of 44.6×42.9×11.6 mm with a rotating bezel (frame around the screen) has MIL-STD-810G protection and is completely protected from water and dust ingress. The straps here are used in a width of 20 mm, which are easily removed and replaced if necessary.

Processor, memory and functionality

Perhaps it would seem strange to choose a smartwatch in terms of technical characteristics, and not in appearance, because a smartwatch is the same accessory for a person as a conventional clock with arrows or a dial. But we decided that we need to tell about the processor, memory and functionality. So, Samsung Gear Sport Black has a 2-core processor Exynos 3250 Dual with 0.768 GB of RAM, and the built-in memory here is 4 GB. The battery in this model received a capacity of  300 mAh.

From the list of functionality, it is important to us that Samsung Gear Sport Black has a built-in GPS-module and NFC-module with support for contactless payments of the Samsung Pay.

But there is unfortunately no built-in support for 3G/4G networks. We recommend looking at other smartwatches with support for 3G/4G networks.

Price for Samsung Gear Sport Black: buy or not to buy?

At the time of the official announcement in October 2017 a price of $220 was declared. We try to update this figure promptly every time the sellers decided to change it.

Whether it is worthwhile to buy Samsung Gear Sport Black at such a price with such characteristics, everyone decides for himself. Or maybe you want to choose other smartwatches at a similar price, then we advise you to go to the price segment page “Above average smartwatches from $200 to $300” in our catalog.

One important thing, in our opinion, is that a smartwatch is not only a fashionable portable electronics, it is also an accessory that can complement your image. Come responsibly to the choice of smartwatches. Look in our catalog of options for colors and materials, of which the watch is made. Check the compatibility of selected smartwatch with the version of your smartphone′s operating system. Have a nice shopping!
