Samsung Gear S2 vs Moto 360: 5 Key Differences

Customization

One big area that the Moto 360 shines and makes it more appealing, is customization. The Moto 360 can have more than 400 different looks or styles, comes in three base colors for the body, three colors for the bezel (two textures for the bezel too) and a slew of different watch bands.

We're talking silicon rubber, multiple colors and textures of premium hand-made leather, and three options in Stainless steel. Those being Black, Silver, or Gold.

The Samsung Gear S2 on the other hand, has none of this. Yes there are a few colors for the regular Gear S2 and its silicon strap, and the bands are somewhat easy to remove and come in a few different leather options for the Gear S2 classic, but that's about it. If you want something unique, go with the Moto 360 2nd Gen.

    I am really torn between these two devices, which are both similar priced. One one hand (no pun intended), I own a Samsung smartphone and would love the Samsung app integration, like Samsung pay, but on the other hand, I really want a premium-looking smart watch with silver metal bands. #FirstWorldProblems

    I’ve tried them both. I’m an avid Samsung fan (owned galaxy s3, s4, s5, and now so edge, as well as a new tab s2) do I really wanted to like gear s2. Rotating bezel is awesome, and battery life is pretty amazing – but Tizen kills it. To use email and text you basically then have to use the stock email and messages on your phone, otherwise if you’d like to use third party options (I use Aquamail pro for my email, and SimplyText for SMS) then the gear s2 can’t use email or text (very Apple like of you Samsung, there’s a reason many of us shy away from iOS devices that force you to use stock apps). Current Tizen apps are basically limited to watch faces and stock gear S2 apps.

    So as much as I wanted to love the Gear S2, it’s unusable for me. So back it went to the store, and now I’m happy with my moto 360 and Android Wear.
