      I love this watch - but the strap SUCKS.

      So in an attempt to get my fat self up and walking, I decided to by a wearable fitness tracker. Having experience with two different models of fitbit, I wanted to check this one out. Finding it refurbished at $150 was a fair price so I gave it ago. My first few days with this new toy, err, fitness tracker, were great.. Then somewhere around the week mark, two things happened - My watch stopped counting steps and the strap broke. (arg) - So I took this watch back to best buy and looked again at what was available. After getting a full refund, I found out that BB was now selling this watch for $99 - So I reluctantly gave it another try. So my second watch came in and within 8 hours, the watch band broke. Examining it closely I noticed it failed in the same place the first one did - the plastic/silicone interface. I work in an office and no I didn't catch it on anything, I just flexed my wrist and pop.... Luckily, I found a Black SS band from another vender. I've worn this thing everyday for the last month and a half. The watch hasn't failed, the aftermarket band hasn't failed and I've lost 12 pounds. So all in all I love the watch - If not for the sub par design of the band, I would have given this four stars.

      Horrible Experience

      I unfortunately didn't read the reviews about the Geek Squad before I made this purchase, I wish I had. I have had the watch less than 5 days before while wearing it the staps broke. I called Geek Squad and was told to go to the store where they will exchange the item for one that is not defective. After going to the store, wasting time that I will never get back, I was told my only option was to return the item and purchase a new one. I guess they really don't stand behind their refurbished products. I wanted the watch after upgrading from the Gear Fit and was willing to get a replacement band, but that option was not offered and when I offered it was told it could not be done. Worst experience ever, first and last refurbished Geek Squad item for me.

      The Gear S2 runs Samsung's proprietary Tizen smartwatch OS, rather than the defacto Android Wear. While this gives Samsung more control over the integration of hardware and software, third party application support is practically non-existant. Samsung's choice of S-Voice pails in comparison to OK Google. So, while the OS is rather smooth, the functionality and expandability is limited given that very few software vendors are writing apps for Tizen OS. The number of Android phones that support the Gear S2 is also much less than a watch running Android Wear. On the hardware front, the screen is beautiful and the rotating bezel makes navigating the OS a very intuitive affair. Where Samsung dropped the ball is with their choice to use a proprietary connector. Apple can get away with this because they offer a wide array of replacement bands and the third-party market is also rich in its offerings. No such luck with the Gear S2. Samsung's choices of replacement bands is embarassing and third-party support is also pretty much non-existant. All in all, a good product could be SO much better if Samsung chose to go with Android Wear for the OS and stuck with standard band support a la Motorola with its 360 and Huawei and their smart watch.

      Got this as refurbished product from best buy at $99 a few weeks ago. Was aware that some reviews claimed problems with refurbished items, but bb has 30-day money back guarantee, so I had a month to make sure it worked. I have purchased refurb from bb and other places and never had problem. I figure that if there is defect, it'll come up right away; maybe I've just been lucky, but I have been using and wearing every day for 2-3 weeks with no problems. The only issues to report are the strap or band does come off the face of the watch rather easily if it hits something. The band has come off twice just by hitting it or brushing up against a wall or door, and one time the watch fell off my wrist and hit the ground; fortunately, it did not crack or stop working. I am constantly checking the band to make sure it is not loose bc I don't want the watch to fall off and break.. Also, in order to get notifications about calls, texts, emails, etc., you have to sync the watch with your phone, which was easy to do, but the bluetooth on the phone has to remain on to stay connected to watch, which has caused my battery on phone to drain very fast. The battery on the watch itself is very good. I have it on constantly and do not have to charge for 3 days or more.

      “THINK TWICE”

      In case you’re reading this to find out if the GEAR S2 is worth buying....it’s not. I was flying high thinking it’d be the perfect accessory to my S7 but I was quickly brought down to earth. It’ll let you know if someone calls you and you can answer, but you can’t actually talk on it as it has no microphone. Sending and receiving text messages is also lacking and lagging. I get the message notification about 5 mins after my phone got it even though the two weren’t more than 3 feet apart, which is way more of a lag than I’d expect. The good thing is that the GEAR S2-3G, which is what I bought after a week with the GEAR S2, is the improved version. The GEAR S2-3G offers no lag in messages, apps work better, has GPS, and the most important feature in my opinion...the ability to talk and answer calls on it cause it has a MICROPHONE!! Go with the GEAR S2-3G. It can also take a SIM card which essentially makes it a phone all by itself. It’s pricier but worth it. !!YOU HAVE BEEN FOREWARNED!!

      You need to read all the reviews here for this refurbished watch. It seems as though the condition of the watch varies wildly. Some watches are dirty and marked up and bands are broken or missing and some look new. My watch arrived with both small and large bands, the charging cradle and the USB cable. The large band was attached to the watch and the small band still packaged and unused. The watch was in perfect condition. The battery was discharged to 0 so it took a while to charge. It synced to my Honor 5X just fine and has been working perfectly for about a month. No issues at all. Some have complained that their band has broken after a few weeks or even a few days. Not mine. All is good. Overall, an outstanding price for a good smartwatch. I would recommend this at the refurbished price but I would not buy a new one at the full price.

      I bought the watch as a gift for my boyfriend. I was a little nervous because it was a refurbished product. I was even more nervous when it came in the mail and the strap wasn’t attached and there were no directions. However, the strap was easy to assemble and there are plenty of User’s guides online. Besides that, I am impressed with the capabilities of the watch! My boyfriend loves using the texting, ESPN, news, etc. apps. Since the watch doesn’t have a speaker, you can’t call or play music directly from it. However, the watch does connect to Bluetooth headphones, making it convenient for running. I believe this watch was well worth the price I paid for it. I would recommend this watch to anyone that doesn’t have an iPhone or doesn’t mind if it’s not the most up-to-date model on the market.

      Refurbished risk worth taking

      Buying refurbished is a total risk but this time it paid off. I bought this refurbished and was really worried about how bad it might be when I received it. Were there going to be scratches everywhere? Was everything going to be included like it should? Would it even work!? I can safely say everything came exactly as advertised, minus the official box. It was packaged well and you couldn't tell it was ever used. I immediately put on a screen protector, changed the face of the watch, put it on and felt like a champ. The features of the watch are outstanding. There are tons and tons of reviews on youtube and on the web. Every review I read pointed me to get the gear s2 (even with the gear s3 about to come out... which is supposed to be BIGGER! blah.) In the end, it was totally worth the risk. Its weird saying it, but having it be geek squad certified really made a difference.
