    Can the Gear s2 be used to make and take calls via bluetooth?   (10 Answers)

    I was at the store yesterday and an employee in the Samsung device area told me the Gear S2 will be able to make and take calls via the bluetooth connection, making it possible to use the watch Dick Tracy style as long as your phone is connected to the watch. I have not come across this information in my research of this watch. Can anyone confirm or deny this allegation?

      Answer

      You can use the watch to make and answer calls... on your phone. it is really lame. the gear s2 and s2 classic do not have a speaker, and therefore cannot be used to take/make calls. the 3g version will have that capability. I got the gear s2 last week and i was thoroughly disappointed to find out that it lacks that ability. it will answer the call, but you can't speak to them on your watch; you'll need to pull out your phone and put it to your ear. also means any music needs to be played through your phone or other bluetooth device. alarms on your watch dont make any noise either. not a deal breaker for me... yet.

          Answer

          I've read there will be a 3G version coming out, I think it's out as I've seen offers for it from AT&T and Verizon. Not sure on pricing or contract terms from them. My Gear S2 Classic can't answer a call, only alert you of one.

                      If you are looking for something dainty, this is not it. However, if you don't mind a wider band and a rugged luck, it could be worn by a woman.

                      Yes it does. But not with a sound function, it only vibrates. Great way to wake yourself up without disturbing your partner
