The most beautiful smartwatch you can buy

Like the original Falster, the Skagen Falster 2 has stolen our heart. We think it’s the most beautiful smartwatch you can buy — we’re always happy to wear it — and we do like using it to dismiss notifications and track heart rate data over time. While there are cheaper smartwatches you can buy, none of them look as good as the Falster 2, and the Falster offers good value considering all the features it packs. Just don’t expect it to last anything more than a day.

Nothing new

from Tech Advisor

While the design is great and the new Wear OS update is a plus, the Falster 2 isn’t quite the home run we hoped for. The one-day battery life is a disappointment. Despite adding GPS, NFC and waterproofing, the performance is a little sluggish and it doesn’t bring anything new to the table. Th...More

While the design is great and the new Wear OS update is a plus, the Falster 2 isn’t quite the home run we hoped for. The one-day battery life is a disappointment. Despite adding GPS, NFC and waterproofing, the performance is a little sluggish and it doesn’t bring anything new to the table. This is more a criticism of the software than the hardware itself which is a shame as the Falster 2 is one of the nicest looking smartwatches around, notwithstanding its flaws.

The best-looking Android smartwatch, but not the best value

from Android Central

Minor software issues aside, the Skagen Falster 2 is probably the best-looking, most well-rounded Wear OS watch to date. Unfortunately, it runs an ancient CPU that's about to be superseded.

Sporty and fashionable

from Wareable

It offers so much on paper, and features like Google Pay, the new waterproof design and rotatable crown earn this smartwatch serious kudos. But when it comes to workouts, you’re not going to get the level of accuracy you’d find on a Garmin or Apple Watch, and Skagen really should have include...More

It offers so much on paper, and features like Google Pay, the new waterproof design and rotatable crown earn this smartwatch serious kudos. But when it comes to workouts, you’re not going to get the level of accuracy you’d find on a Garmin or Apple Watch, and Skagen really should have included Qualcomm’s new chipset, the omission of which makes what should be the perfect smartwatch feel rather behind the times.

The prettiest Wear OS watch has a problem

from Android Authority

The Skagen Falster 2 brings plenty of improvements like a GPS, heart rate monitor, and NFC. It's also beautiful, and has a great OLED display. Beauty is only skin deep, though. Wear OS 2.1 doesn't run well on the Falster 2's old hardware.

A stylish new Apple Watch rival

from TrustedReviews

The small tweaks Skagen has made to the Falster 2 versus its predecessor are wholly appreciated but the new internals and their impact of the watch’s feature set are the real stars of the show here, turning an inoffensive Wear OS smartwatch into a competitive wearable.
