Samsung Gear 2 Neo: Good balance between price and functionality
Samsung has by now a whole bunch of smart watches and bracelets out there on the market and it’s getting hard to keep apart. Gear 2 Neo is also nearly identical to Gear 2, but is made of plastic instead of metal and does not have a camera. In addition, it is much cheaper. All these good qualities, according to the US.
Gear 2 works only with Samsung phones, which is probably its biggest drawback. Do you have one and would like to be able to receive alerts, control the music player or the tv, searching with your voice and much more are Gear 2 Neo a good first choice.

Gear 2 Neo is fully equipped as regards health features with the heart rate sensor, accelerometer and water resistance down to one meter. Unfortunately these works not irreproachable: the heart rate monitor is hard to read and the pedometer must be activated manually, for example.
Gear 2 Neo want much, but some features it works poorly. Do you have a Samsung phone and want to test smart watches, however, Gear 2 Neo be an affordable option.

Pebble Steel: you didn’t know you needed
After a week with Pebble Steel on his arm, we are thrilled. The simplicity of the Pebble OS makes this smartwatch fantastic, it feels very well thought out and somehow very playful. All you need to do to get started is to download and start the Pebble-app, which you can find in the Store or App Store. The app asks you to choose which Pebble you want to connect, and when you’ve done this you are in time.
Many dials and apps
Once inside the app finds you extremely many different digital clock faces and apps. App store includes everything from a coffee counter that helps you keep track of how many cups of coffee you have drunk to the smaller games. All apps to Pebble is free, however, some apps need a support-app on your phone, which can cost money.
It is not the only cell phones you can connect the Pebble. You can also connect to your computer and o’clock, for example, scroll through Powerpoint presentations with a simple button presses.
That said, the Pebble Steel will not be filling any holes in your everyday life, but once you’ve had one, it’s hard to be without. We tested to be Pebble-loose during a working day and it really felt like something was missing. Each time the phone was vibrating we checked in on our empty wrist and then pick up your phone.

It is not just that it’s nice to have everything on the wrist, it’s also nicer in social contexts. You throw just a quick look at the clock when it vibrates to you can then decide if you need to forward your phone or not.
Design and interface
The design is not overly nice, but a bit better than the first Pebble.The watch is very well built in brushed steel and its angular design is somewhat reminiscent of the old Casio watches but there is something wrong, something we can’t put a finger on.
Our version has a bracelet which is of genuine leather but that unfortunately looks like fake leather. It is possible to buy a steel bracelet, which perhaps makes the clock a little bit prettier.Unfortunately, it has added an extra axle in strap bracket so you can not attach the bracelet to the watch. The angular corners on the clock gets caught easily in your shirt-and jackärmar.
lack Pebble Steel with leather strap. As you can see we have added an additional axle in the strap bracket.
In contrast, OS interface is neatly Pebble. The clock is very maneuverable and you can move on in the menus to the arrangement that best suits you. Thanks to e-pappersdisplayen, at a real retro feel but also a really good battery life. We could use the watch in a week with a charging and normal use.
Unfortunately, the display is relatively small given the size of the Cabinet and it is perhaps this which also makes it a little uglier. We would have liked to have seen a clearer indication that you lost the connection to your mobile phone. As it is now, so the watch vibrates and depending on the dial to have seen maybe a little crossed-out bluetooth icon in a corner.
The only thing that differs from Pebbles first watch is design and a small charge indicator in the bottom left hand corner which glows red when charging and then becomes green when the battery is fully charged.
Asking Pebble Steel against the other watches for about the same price range, such as (a few hundred more expensive) Samsung Gear 2 or Sony Smartwatch 3, so the operating system is the first thing you should check out. Pebble OS works for both Iphone and Android while Sony Smartwatch uses Android Wear and only works for Android. Samsung Gear uses Tizen OS and has features that just works with Samsung’s own phones. This gives Pebble smart watches a big advantage, according to Answerresume.
However, both Sony and Samsung’s smartwatch a higher-res color display with touch capabilities. However, they are more athletic in the execution and has many features to help you with your workout.
We think the Pebble indicates that it does not need to be as advanced as long as it works well, and so does Pebble Steel. At present, there are smartklockor that most manufacturers are betting a lot on, and they turn their watches with as many features as possible. All these extras usually do at slow and pull the battery.
Pebble Steel gives you what you need with a retroglimt in the eye.It’s not very pretty to look at but it’s playful and fun to be with. “would you like a smartwatch which has an almost infinite number of downloadable apps, which will make your life not much but a little easier, and that simply works, you should choose Pebble Steel.

Polar M400: Coach on the arm
Polar M400 ports between Smart Watches and bracelets. It cannot display notifications from the phone but is much more advanced than an ordinary activity meter. For example, the M400 built-in gps and a whole range of different training profiles. The M400 is simply a tool, especially for those who love running. M400 can certainly measure the living activity and sleep well but given the design will probably watch mainly to be used in the training context.

The M400 is full of smart training features. There is for example a find home function that will help you when you are out running in a new city.
