    Great watch

    I am really enjoying my watch. It works very well with my Samsung S6 Edge. Being able to make and receive calls, texts and email is very handy. The screen is nice and bright and I get at least 2 days use out of one charge. The only draw back is the somewhat cumbersome method of connecting the charging cradle but I am getting better at it. I am glad I bought the watch before they were all gone. I think the model was not continued in 2016 which is a big mistake in my opinion.

    I love my watch! I use it for everything . If you exercise it is a great device to keep up with your steps, running, walking, biking and hiking. I use it a lot to challenge my self and the great thing is that if I'm sitting in one place too long it lets me know that it's time to get up. I love it too because I have the option with connecting it to a mobile line or not.

    This watch is incredible! And the nice thing is that I dont need my phone to use it either! Its great for when your out and about and you dont need to check your phone every 5 seconds to see if you missed anything. Definitely a great device to keep connected!!!! Great battery life as well for all you people that are curious!

    Doesn't seem as user friendly as the Apple watch

    We decided we liked the Apple watch better than the Samsung Gear S, because the Apple watch is much more user friendly, so to speak. Enough that we are more than willing to pay the higher price for the Apple watch, which is roughly an additional $130.00. Plus the fact that with the Samsung Gear, it is only compatible with At&t phone service, and we are verizon customers. So this alone is a huge factor in choosing between the Samsung Gear s and the Apple watch. At least it is for us.

    WATCH

    Its a great tool. I feel this has created a benchmark for the future -which will be ruled by Smart Watches. I can talk with this keeping my phone 4 rooms away- the other caller cant even find any difference in the call quality. I get all my Notifications at my finger tips- Messaging , Whats App, Gmail, Yahoo mail. S voice has been spot on. The watch interfaces are really cool.

    Use this as a stand alone watch or sync to your Galaxy Phone for the full package deal. You need a galaxy device to get started, manage apps and update apps and some options. Perfect for any galaxy owner. Display is beautiful. Very comfortable and able to remotely answer calls from galaxy phone via call forwarding. So you can run, exercise without carrying your phone. Bluetooth and onboard storage for music is just about perfect with the built in GPS.

    It's a watch. It should always show the time. It has a setting to always show the time, it's buried in the menu system. When you finally find it and enable it, the simple act of wearing a coat or jacket causes the watch to call people, play music, any function the watch is capable of performing. It should require the user to press the button on the front to enable swiping on the watch face. I can only wear the watch on fair weather days when a jacket is not really required.

    I love this watch. I have tried various watches: zen watch, LG, and moto 360. My two favorites were the Moto 360 and the Samsung Gear S. I picked the Gear S because it is the only one, at the time, that has all the features plus you can make phone calls directly from the watch itself. There are many times where I will leave the phone sitting on my desk at home. Now, if that happens, all the calls and texts get forwarded directly to the watch on my wrist. Amazing!

    I had the original GEAR watch for 2 years. It became an indespensible part of my life. Now I have upgraded to the GEAR S. I love it. The fact that it has its own phone has rescued me a couple of times already from a dead phone. It feels and looks good. I do miss the camera a little when showing it off but I really very seldom used the camera. I highly recommend this watch to anyone with an android phone!!!!!!

    Samsung out did themselves this time, this thing is entertainment, style and High Tech on a grand scale. U can change bands to match outfits, it has a Internet browser so u look up things from the watch, I'm going to cry it's prefect to say the least. I do miss the watch camera but this is better than the first generation gears which did nothing much. Would I recommend to a friend, Gear yeah!

    Has not aged well

    Not sure why anyone would still be considering this watch these days, but just in case - the Gear S has not aged well. The thing is a complete brick on your wrist and the one I have has gotten increasingly laggy over time. It's obvious that round is the way forward, so this one already looks dated and even more out of place. You are much better off considering the new Gear S2 or some of the Android Wear watches that are available.

    Didn't think a smart watch would be so useful.

    I always assumed that a smart watch would be a toy more than a useful communication device. I was wrong. The watch's features help me keep in touch without having to pull out my phone repeatedly. I especially like the fitness uses it provides (heart rate monitor, pedometer, goal setting, etc.). The built in text responses, ability to text from the watch or talk using the watch as a bluetooth on my wrist make keeping in touch handy.

    I paid full price for this watch so it could be unlock for international line att said they couldn't unlock it because it was never connected and it wasn't there s/n I had to pay 20 bucks so I could get the code to make it international because even samsung didn't want to provide me the code so I could put another international sim card. Other then that bad service from att & samsung but the watch is nice better then other smart watch.

    I love the watch if it had a built in camera it would be even more better and a longer battery span. other then that the screen is perfect for reading it has a minor glitch and it could be just mine. but every new update the software crashes and I have to do a hard reset then upgrade and need to reinstall all my apps and setting from scratch. other then that this phone is awesome.

    I love this watch, not only is it compatible to the Samsung 3, 4, 5 and 6, it is a excellent bluetooth and the sound is crystal clear. The staff at bestbuy did a excellent job getting and having my Samsung gear s ready for pick-up. I would recommend the Samsung gear S to everyone and when purchasing please go to bestbuy, the staff is the best. 5 stars plus for the watch and the staff at bestbuy.

    I really like the gear s but I had to exchange it due to over heating. I was on a call for about 15 min and I got a message "gear is over heating to prevent damage it must turn off" I took it back to best buy and they told me it was over the 15 days but because I m a member they exchange it no problem. I took a call today that lasted 20 min with no issues. I love this gear. I highly recommend it.

    A true Smartwatch

    This is the most advanced watch I have ever owned.. A truly smart watch... connects to my phone in 3 ways Bluetooth, WiFi, and it's own cellular plan. I choose not to take the cellular plan. My phone would be in the other side of the house and I can still get notifications and calls on this watch because it is on the same Wi-Fi connection.

    After having my smartwatch for just over a month I have enjoyed wearing it. It's contour is very comfortable to wear everyday. My only thoughts of a downside is that you have to plug a external battery pack onto the back of the watch then plug a cord into that. When done charging you have to unclip it. I can see this breaking over time since you have to charge the watch every 2 days.

    I had the motor 360 and found it did not do more then 75% of what I wanted. The motor 360 is a great smart watch if you only get notifications and do not mind still pulling out your phone to type a response or other activities. Gear S allows for voice reply and typing, if you prefer. Of course having little fingers would be preferable with the tiny keyboard. The gear S is the best companion device ever.
