Apple and Samsung have been rivals in the smartphone market for many years and now both the companies have set their foot in the smartwatch market too. Fans have been comparing Apple Watch 2 and Samsung Gear S2 lately to decide which one to buy as they enter the market.

So we have pitted both devices to make easy for the buyers to decide which one to buy.

The Size War

Samsung Gear S2 arrives in three sizes namely the S2 models, S2 Classic and S2 3G. The S2 model is designed in 50 x 42 x 11.4mm size but the other two models S2 Classic and S2 3g has the size of 44 x 40 x 11.4mm, and 51.8 x 44 x 13.4 mm respectively. However, there is a small change in 3G model but it is almost negligible.

However, the new Apple smartwatch arrives generally in two different sizes 33.3 x 38.6 x 10.5 mm and 35.9 x 42 x 10.5 mm, reports MacWorld.

This means  Apple Watch 2 would have the smaller body than its rival. Whereas, the Samsung Gear S2 fits perfectly fine on a wrist, especially the Classic model.

The Screen War

Samsung Gear S2 has provided a standard touch screen. Pressure-sensitive screens are included in Apple Watch 2, and it offers a better and bigger screen when compared to Samsung Gear S2 watches. Apple Watch has more colors and it looks fancier than another smartphone, notes Gazette Review.

The Features War

A FaceTime camera is incorporated in Apple Watch 2 as reported by Tech Crunch. The publication also notes that Apple Watch would not bring any significant changes and most of the features would remain the same.

If rumours are to be believed, both Samsung Gear 2 and Apple Watch 2 will sport the same features such as e-mail, text and voice call support, speakers and Bluetooth.

However, most of the specs are uncertain as the Apple Watch 2 is yet to arrive is September,  so a winner cannot be decided.
