The competition this week are two Smart Watches: the Galaxy Gear from Samsung and theSmartWatch clock 2 of Sony. The gadgets are rivals in the market but are different bets: the Gear is equipped with a robust hardware, while the new SmartWatch clock 2 prefers to integrate applications with mobile Xperia Z1. But which is best? The TechTudo tested the two devices to show their advantages and disadvantages.
Design: SmartWatch clock 2
The Galaxy Gear has a 1.63-inch screen with a resolution of 320 x 320 pixels and a density of 227 PPI screen. The new Sony SmartWatch clock has a resolution of 220 x 176 pixels, with 1.6 inch screen size and density of 176 PPI. The Sony screen material is common LCD. Graphically, the Samsung’s screen gives Sony a bath, in addition to being equipped with Gorilla Glass and made of AMOLED.
However, the thickness of 9 mm the SmartWatch clock 2 make your design a lot nicer than the 11 mm from the competitor. The fabric is waterproof and risks, a very favorable aspect to Sony. The Galaxy Gear looks like a male model, with a robust aluminum design without the amount of plastic of smartphones from Samsung. The black color of the Sony model also has points in favor, leaving the gadget discreet on the wrist.
Both gadgets can change your bracelets. In this regard, both the Sony as the Samsung bet on alternative models and colorful for your smart devices. However, for everyday situations, the Black Watch Sony seems more discreet than your competitor.
Features: Galaxy Gear
The gadget from Samsung takes enough advantage in their features. The two have SMS, email and even social networks like Facebook and Twitter. However, only the Galaxy Gear has a 1.9 megapixel camera located on the bracelet. It’s great to photograph and record discreetly environments. In addition, you can record videos in 720 p quality with him, besides the presence of sensors as gyroscope and accelerometer. Both come with USB input but only the Gear has two microphones.
The SmartWatch clock Sony 2 is another gadget for reading, no built-in camera, and to send SMS. Even so, in our tests, it is only possible to read on Twitter, don’t send messages. The two clocks allow you to listen to music and interact with their smartphones, but only the Samsung model makes calls. The Galaxy Gear has a good synchrony with the Galaxy Note 3, but also works with other phones of the same brand as the S4. Already the SmartWatch clock low Xperia application to touch the back of Z1 cell.
Performance: Galaxy Gear
The Gear has 800 MHz processor, 200 MHz of the SmartWatch clock against 2. That is, Samsung managed to fit at least four times more capacity in a device with similar size.
On drums, the situation is reversed: the Sony model can handle up to four days of use m. The Galaxy Gear barely supports a full day. The SmartWatch clock is Bluetooth 3.0, while the Gear has the 4.0 version.
Price: SmartWatch clock 2
More to the point: the Galaxy Gear costs at least between 1,100 and 1,300 R$ R$ (launch price). The Sony model you can find on the Internet with price in the range between 700 and 800 R$ R$. None of the values is exactly cheap, but the high durability of the battery and the connection, the SmartWatch clock 2 looks a better option.
Looking at the specifications, the Galaxy Gear, from Samsung, is a touchscreen watch much better compared to the SmartWatch clock 2. However, particularly in the cost-benefit aspect, in addition to the excellent battery, the Sony device seems more attractive to the end user.
The wristwatch is typically used as an extension of the cell phone, not as a standalone gadget. The SmartWatch clock works well integrated with the Xperia Z1 and serves for easy reading of internet content. He doesn’t take pictures but at least it has a battery that lasts a few days, enough for you not to think of load it in the same week.
