The Samsung Gear Circle looks extremely gorgeous in the term of outlook. The very moment you have a look at it or rather touch and feel it, I am pretty sure you will feel the same too. Trying it out didn’t disappoint me either with the deep bass being extremely noticeable together with the in – ear buds able to keep the environment sound unreachable while listening to music.  When you pair the Gear Circle with a smartphone, you can use it to receive calls, and even use the S-Voice for voice commands all via Bluetooth. With the existance of the magnetic lock which clasps around the neck of the user while not in use avoiding it to fall down or even be misplaced. Lastly the Gear Circle supports vibration as well to indicate incoming calls and notifications.

Highlights of the Samsung Gear Circle are the following :-

  • Nano coated which means sweat and dust resistant
  • Extremely durable and lightweight
  • Battery life up to 7 days depending on your usage pattern
