    Wasn't sure I would like this device. It was my first smart watch purchase, but it has definitely grown on me. Really like the ability to look quickly at the email/text notifications without having to reach for phone, unlock, etc, and realize it wasn't important. Just a quick glance at the watch, and you know. Battery life is really good, easily get through a couple of days, but I charge every night so I don't have to worry about it. And definitely a great conversation starter when people notice it. Wish more apps were compatible with the device, but definitely functions well. In a pinch have used it as a speakerphone, and it works great, the person on the other end doesn't even know you're talking to them from your wrist.

    This SmartWatch has almost all the functionality I was looking for. The only thing more I could ask for would be a website (ala Fitbit), but hopefully someday Samsung will get on the ball. Then it will be perfect. I love the sleep tracking function and was not willing to give that up, which is why I would not move "up" to the newest generation model when I bought this one. I do not use the separate line capability, just connect with Bluetooth. The built in speaker and microphone still allow me to use my watch as a phone when my actual phone is across the house and I need to answer that call. For these and MANY more reasons this is the PERFECT watch for me. That's why I bought one for my husband for Christmas, too!

    Just got it today and fell in love with it right away. I did a video of me unboxing it and giving my first impressions of the device as well as many other points. Here is the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxPMmHabW70&feature=youtu.be I am challenging my self to strictly only use the Gear S as my primary communications device for 1 week straight. I will leave my phone at home and attempt to just use the watch. I should be able to give a much better review afterwards so look out :).

    While it's a cool idea, well built, and may work great for someone who's lifestyle is set up to take advantage of the features, this thing is pretty much worthless to the average Joe. I've had it for at least a month, and I've probably used it for about 2-3 minutes, and that was just to answer a text message because I couldn't find my phone right then. No real music apps to speak of, the pedometer isn't even close to accurate, the sleep tracker is only useful if you never get up/move/get a drink of water, go to the bathroom/etc/etc after laying down for the night. You do get a different phone number from your cell, so if you're interested in cheating on your significant other, I'm sure it'll come in real handy!!

    Luv it luv it luv it. I was going to get the gear 2 but when I heard gear s was coming I waited. I was really excited just for the one main fact that it's a standalone device. I kept checking the features and some details about it before it came out. I was kinda worried about the size till I put it on my wrist. I don't know why people get mad if the one they bought was defective out the box. It's a gadget it happens and if it those that make it a bad device. I just keep living it everyday. The battery is really not that bad. It last me the whole day with a stand by screen. I do that cause I don't like the screen totally off.

    Great watch. Easy to read display and easy to use. I wish it had more apps available but it handles my main ones which are email, text, and phone perfectly. The real benefit for me was when I left my phone at home, the calls are forwarded to my watch, and with the addition of sim card, I am able to never miss a call. The speaker and the microphone are awesome as I can be driving with the window open and it sounds as clear as if I was on the Note 4. If it had interchangeable bands and more apps it would have it all. It is worth every penny for sure.

    Stopped working properly after the first month of use! Bluetooth continually disconnects! Nothing more then an overpriced watch! No help from Geek Squad was told they would replace it with a refurbished model! I didn't buy it used shouldn't be replaced with a used one in less then 2 months old! May never buy anything from Best Buy again and their Geek Squad was useless and a waste of money! They told me to go to Plano to have it fixed which is way out of my way or they could ship it off for a week or two and there may be an extra charge to me! What did I pay Geek Squad for!

    The Samsung Gear S is an awesome piece of technology. The curved screen is just awesome and perils anything else on the market. At first I wasn't going to use it to make calls but when playing around with it and testing it out, it's pretty cool. The fact you can tether it to your phone and not have the SIM card is a big help. Only con is I wish Samsung had a little more watch faces you could customize, so hope there is more coming. I know there are apps but I didn't like them. But over all it's an awesome watch and I have had many people come up to me and want to know what it is and play with it.

    I had the Gear Fit before and wanted something a little more techy. The screen is large and I really like it, but someone who has small wrists may not like how big it is. I have had it for about 2 months now and have not had any issues with it. I mainly use it to respond to text messages without pulling my phone out of my backpack or pocket and as a pedometer. It is not 100% accurate as a pedometer but does the job nicely. So far, I really like it and wear it daily. The battery typically lasts 2-3 days and charges in just a few hours which is really nice.

    Excellent Watch, minus one thing

    I love this watch for many reasons. #1 Sleek design #2 Larger screen than its predecessors, gear 1 and 2. #3 The battery life is very good. I can wear the watch all day for 2 to 3 days without having to charge it. There are many new features that are fantastic, such as the GPS feature. This feature allows you to use a running app and us the watch to track time and distance you have run. LOVE IT!! The one drawback to this watch versus the Gear 1 and 2 is the lack of a camera. Not that having a camera is the most important thing, it was just very cool snapping photos on the sly. Other than that, I love the phone!!

    What can I say but this has to be the best watch on the market.,, even now 2016! Why? 1. "You can text" it has a keyboard may be small but I have no problems using it and I'm a big guy ;) these new watches have the speak text or quick reply no keyboard:( 2. plus you also get speak text with this watch. It's a no brainer!! 2. It has its own sim card slot 3. The size of the screen 4. Battery life 5. It has the same 512 ram and 4gb of storage as the new s2 6. More apps 7. Resolution is better than anything out there now. Need I say more just buy it you won't be disappointed!!

    This watch offers many very functional apps, many of them free. I love it, being something of a watch geek. A great improvement is that you can access both Bluetooth and your website for connectivity. The loss of the camera function from the previous version is too bad, I didn't use it often, but it was fun and had amazing resolution for its size. The watch face is larger than in the previous version, something that people with smaller wrists may want to consider. Personally, I don't mind. Overall, it's a wonderful watch and it has helped me be less dependent on my phone.

    I own the original Gear watch. When I bought this new watch it was because I was hoping to utilize the Nike+ app on it. I've been a bit underwhelmed with it as it's been quirky. Aside from that there's not too much more I can do with it. It's a nice looking watch and I enjoy wearing it. The cost alone versus an I watch is enough to consider it but unless you get a second data plan for it then you have limited use. Feel so so overall with the watch. I think they need to have more apps for the watch before I would consider it as a replacement for my phone. Technology with Samsung isn't quite there.

    The Gear S was a replacement for my original gear which had died and was replaced by Geek-squad. It paired with my Note 4 quickly and was set up very easily. Unfortunately it had developed a row of dead pixels along the bottom half of the screen. The store was great about letting it be returned but since this is a discontinued product they were unable to order me another one. So I did not get to use the watch for more then a couple days, but the few days I did get to use it were enjoyable. Now I just have to find a similar smartwatch to the gear series.

    I purchased my Gear S three weeks ago and it is still going strong. This is the smartest watch I have ever owned... I rarely pull my phone out these days... The coolest feature I think is being able to leave the phone in my bedroom and be able do control it over my wifi. I can make and take calls answer emails and text all from this watch... One charge last me 2 days with heavy use... The only issue is that with the 2" screen, I fear that I might scratch it or damage it....otherwise, I definitely recommend the Samsung Gear S..

    I absolutely love my watch. I took a star off because I have trouble getting rid of voicemail notifications on the watch. The only other this I am a little displeased with is the band has already gotten some discoloration. It appears to have a faint blue tint on the edges where I have brushed my wrist on my jeans. The white is very nice but I don't know how to clean this type of material. Other than that.. it is a great product. I have had it for over a month and it works great. Sound quality is good/ Response time good/ Weight not bad/ Comfort Good/

    Let me tell you it's a lot of fun when you first get, and what's better than getting complimented on your fancy new watch to boot? Once the glamour wears away, it serves it's purpose, and makes life a lot easier to determine the urgency or importance of a text or call. Phone isn't nearly glued to my hip as much now. The only reason why there isn't a 5 star on this product is due to the lack of apps for the watch and the cramped keyboard. Wish I could get my Google Play on this as well. It's strictly Galaxy Apps.

    I'm a regular shopper when it comes to buying new components or software. After purchasing the smartphone ( Samsung Gear S). And contacting AT&T to get the unlock code to use with my carrier, I was amaze with the performance. Independent dialing and it's own number. Grab me a $25.00 calling plan. That was all it took. Your own GPS etc ! I could go on and own with the user-friendly apps

    This watch is great! I It does everything you need it to do. It gives you email, sms, calls, and other notifications. The speaker quality is very good on phone calls. I had the Apple watch and this one is a lot better. The Bluetooth range is also better then the Apple watch. This is not me killing the Apple watch, just comparing it to each other. I would recommend this watch over most Android watches. I wish it worked with other Android phones but unfortunately it only works with Samsung phones.
