Galaxy Gear S: Discussion on the Quality of Service and Signal Performance
The Antenna signal or Call reception performance of the wearable device
may be lower than the smart phone according to the surrounding environment.
This is caused by features of device itself like small device size, wearing on a
wrist comparing with general smart phones. Since wearable devices like Gear S
has smaller size, it has also minimal GND size which eliminate interference
and it degrade the Antenna and RF performance. Similarly, it should be wore
on a wrist and RF degradation occurs by a human body impact.
Although there may be a degradation in Antenna signal or Call reception performance
than the smart phone in a weak signal area , but in most of actual use environment ,
Gear S provides the functions of the same level with smart phones. Additionally, the
performance level is much higher comparing with existing similar wearable devices
from other manufacturer.
We recommend you will use the Gear S paired after connecting to your mobile
device via Bluetooth for the usual situation , and for the special situation like exercise,
please use the Gear S device standalone mode.
Then, you will be able to enjoy the stable and optimized performance of Gear S
with the companion mode which is connected to the mobile device.
