Apple Watch Series 2 review roundup

Apple Watch Series 2 review roundup

By on September 14, 2016 at 8:51 AM.

Apple’s big press conference last week obvious focused on the companies latest and greatest smartphones, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. We’ve yet to get our hands on the new models so our review is forthcoming, but early reviews suggest Apple’s new iPhones are far less boring than some tech blogs might have led you to believe ahead of the iPhone 7’s debut. They’re hardly perfect and there’s no question that there are some issues that will bother users, but they’re easily the best iPhones Apple has ever made and they’re the most powerful smartphones on the planet by a wide margin. You can check out an iPhone 7 review roundup right here.

On Wednesday, however, attention is turning to the third new product Apple unveiled on stage last week during its big event: the Apple Watch Series 2. The early reviews are in and, as is the case with every second-generation gadget that has ever existed, reviewers are saying they wish this new version was the device Apple released in the first place. Thankfully there were a few more meaningful things said about the new Apple Watch Series 2, and you’ll find our review roundup below. More →

Amazon has a big sale going on Samsung Gear S2 and Gear Fit2 wearables

The smartwatch market is a curious beast right now. There are sooooo many companies with smartwatches in their lineups but truth be told, there are only a small handful of devices that are actually worth purchasing. The rest are… how can we put this nicely? Junk.

Two models that definitely do not fall into the junk category are the Samsung Gear S2 and the Gear Fit2, and Amazon has a big sale going on eight different combined models. More →

Apple Watch 2 Features Battery Life

Apple Watch 2 will finally deliver long overdue improvements to battery life

Apple Watch 2 will finally deliver long overdue improvements to battery life

The first iteration of the Apple Watch has been tremendously popular with early adopters, but there’s no denying that the device hasn’t exactly become the groundbreaking hit that many originally anticipated. Burdened with a less than intuitive UI and just barely acceptable battery life, the Apple Watch has remained more of a niche product than a mainstream hit a’la the iPod.

The Apple Watch 2, however, has the potential to change that. According to a number of credible sources, the next-iteration of the Apple Watch will finally address many of the frustrations that made Apple’s original wearable, in the eyes of some, feel just a tad underwhelming.

Samsung Gear S3

Samsung’s new Gear S3 has one feature that will kill the Apple Watch 2

Samsung’s new Gear S3 has one feature that will kill the Apple Watch 2

When it comes to smartwatches, I normally maintain that simpler is better. By that logic, I should hate Samsung’s new Gear S3. It’s huge, bloated, and crammed with far more tech and radios than anyone should reasonably have attached to their wrists.

But thanks to the LTE radio inside and a partnership with AT&T, the Gear S3 has one killer feature that would make me choose it over a Pebble, or whatever Apple releases next.

When someone says the name “TomTom,” fitness trackers definitely aren’t the first things that come to mind.

It looks like Watch battery life is still a problem Apple can’t easily fix

It looks like Watch battery life is still a problem Apple can’t easily fix

One of the things we expect Apple and other device makers to fix in the coming years is battery life. We want more juice, but without compromising on features, especially when it comes to smartphones and wearables, devices that can’t house generous batteries. A new report detailing the features of the Apple Watch 2 reveals that Apple is yet to fix battery life for its next-gen wearable, and the company will ditch a feature that some users want: cellular connectivity that would give the device more independence.
