    Gearing it up with my watch

    I hadn’t worn a wrist watch in over 15 years due to CTS on both wrists. When I saw & read the features I had to get it. I own a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge which works extremely well with my Gear S2. I can easily customize my Gear S2 & is user friendly. It is not heavy on the wrist. I purchased different bands to match my outfits from Amaz**. It is easy to change the bands. Battery life will vary. If you don't get alot of emails and text messages the battery life will last all day. If you do, the battery life will last about 4-5 hours. I also purchased from Amaz** 3 more chargers (for work, home & car). It charges rather quickly. I like the fact I don't have to have my cell phone on me or near me for the Gear S2 to function. Only regret, I wish I got the white one. I get many compliments.

    The watch works great but some features are difficult to find. For example, my "apps" screen somehow disappeared and it took me about 20 minutes to find the solution online before I could get it back...and then, it was the last screen in the rotation instead of the first as it had previously been. I also had an issue where I was not receiving texts when I left my phone at home, when before that feature had worked OK. I have yet to solve that. The push notifications have become a bit annoying but I'm sure they can also be removed. Additionally, the watch doesn't automatically block calls that are set to block on my phone. Again, I'm sure additional tweaking will take care of it. But not easy to find solutions. But once I do, it seems to work.

    I previously switched to Apple for a short time and had the Apple watch, this watch is better based on price and what you can do with it. This watch has nice features if you are going to use it. The biggest flaw I HATE about this watch (I would give 4.5/5 star with this feature if it had it), when you receive a text, you can not talk to text back, you have to go scroll through your contacts and find that person to be able to do that which I feel is a wasted point, I got the watch for ease. You could respond immediately on apple watch with talk to text, the watch would be much better with that feature and it truly annoys me you cannot do that without taking a minute to scroll through your contacts.

    Good quality, good performance

    The Gear S2 watch is well made in every way that counts. It can take a good beating, the watch face is very accurate to the touch, waterproofing is excellent. The call quality is far better than I thought it would be when used independently, it's downright good. It's a bettereally speaker phone than a phone as it more accurately drowns out noise that isn't you talking. It's a bit pricey, but if you are someone that does a lot outside, like mountain biking, you should really consider getting one of these since it can be used in lieu of a phone. That could be the difference between a broken or soaked phone and just a watch with some water on it.

    Its nifty but not essential

    Bought this knowing that it wouldn't revolutionize my life, and it hasn't. It works well and the battery lasts me about two days under normal use. Disabling unnecessary notifications is critical to saving battery life, along with turning down the screen brightness. It's nice to be able to check a watch when an email or txt arrives rather than going to a phone across the room or in a briefcase. Typing on a watch is pointless but you can if you really need to. Using it as a phone is nice while being away from the phone but the call forwarding confuses me and I still can't get it to work the way I want it to.

    This is my first "smart" watch. It took some time for me to get it set up and get the hang of using it but then again I'm not 6 any more and naturally adept with modern technology. That said, once I got into the swing of it the watch proved relatively intuitive and became easier to use. I do like that it cane be used to send and receive messages of all kinds even if you happen to leave your phone behind. Now I only feel half naked if I forget my cell phone. If I do have my phone with me I turn off the notification feature as this watch tends to eat battery life like a hungry zombie. Overall a good buy for me.

    Better with the phone and the watch together

    For $50 more I was able to use my watch as a phone. Very COOL... I chose to just connect to my Bluetooth, so it works just like when you have the blue tooth in the car, but now to the watch. You can get a service plan with your provider if you choose, but I chose not to. Just like the watch for $50 less, but this one has talking capabilities for the phone. Really like it but will like it more when I learn all of the ins and outs. If using the phone like I have indicated above, make sure to have the phone set up to not keep searching for the provider, otherwise the battery goes dead in less than a day.

    Great watch that has it's own phone number

    It's a great watch with it's own "dedicated number", but I call forwarded my cell phone to it and now get calls from both. I also ported over my magic jack number thru Verizon and my personal "contact information" did not change. The best part is I don't have to physically carry my cell phone everywhere anymore. (oops... I left my cell at home... no problem receiving my calls) I gave it only 4 starts (-1) because the battery life is not as advertised. I get a full 12 hour day with about an hour of calls but that will drain the battery to 20% or less.
