- In terms of snappy performance, interface design and hardware capability, Apple, since the launch of its smart watch, hasn’t faced much competition. Sure, there was Samsung with its Gear S smart watch supporting a large rectangular display and 3G built in Radio capabilities but it wasn’t enough to shift the loyalty of the Apple watches. Since then,Android wear watches have continuously been improving in terms of design, functionality and performance but Apple remains unbeatable.
For many years, Samsung has been making persistent efforts to get a solid foothold with its uniquely designed Galaxy gear watches and is also regarded as the earliest proponents as far as smart watch technology is concerned. But interestingly Apple, with the advent of its very first watch, is just a bit on the overwhelming side due to its specs and style.
Though after a considerable break, Samsung is back in the competition with its Samsung Gear S2 which is ready to give the Apple watch a run in terms of money. The battle between two watches is a close thing. Apple on one hand has taken a lead because of its state of the art craftsmanship and high-end appeal as compared to Samsung which gives more of a plastic feel. Apple also has a competitive advantage over Samsung because of its available size variations of 38 mm and 42 mm while Samsung comes in only 1.2 inch size.
Apple Inc. is a latest player in the war of smart watches but has aroused interest because of its specifications and design. Samsung on the other hand is significantly recognized as the holder of 15 out of 39 US patents specifically granted for smart watch technologies using Innography‘s patent analysis tools. Samsung smart watch IP also includes some intriguing differences like ability to transform from an annularly bent to a flat state and its rotatable display which cannot be found in Apple watch.
Samsung also manages to attract the wider market because of the use of Tizen software that integrates comprehensive software features with fun and style thus making the Samsung Gear S2 a complete and exclusive package. The distinction that makes Apple shine in the world on smart watches is the use of Digital Crown surrounding the face of the watch, which allows zooming in and out without obstructing the touch screen.
If you love to wear classy, elegant and expensive wearable then Apple is a MUST go for you as its price starts at $349. Whereas if you are looking for something light and comfortable, Samsung smart watch is a choice for you.
The verdict may be contradictory as it all depends on your very own tastes and preferences. Samsung undoubtedly has been an undeniable leader in the world of smart watches. Apple with its classic look and efficient OS is also receiving an over whelming response. It is the right time to choose one for you as A man with one watch knows what time it is – A man with two watches is never quite sure.
