The watch has the bells and whistles we expected and it will hopefully lead to creative ideas for further generations of the wearable device. The phone calls are clear and everyone has mentioned that they could not discern I was talking, while driving, through my watch (I did have the watch hand on the wheel BTW). The camera is a nice feature but does open the door for creepy shots, though the sound for the capture cannot easily be disabled. The S voice function is incredible and helps keep the phone in the pocket for those simple tasks. Having said all this, I have it paired to my Note 2. If you side-load the app for Galaxy gear you get access without any extra labor. This will give you access, however, some of the functions are limited or do not function but the calls, camera, contacts, and many other things operate fully. If you are the root type and have the right model there is a ROM that delivers 4.3 to the Note 2 allowing for access now! Do this at your own peril as no one will replace your phone if you brick it! The device is great and I cannot wait to see where programmers make their mark by a truly inspired idea for an app or the engineer that makes the next big move in this smartphone world.

I am shocked that my first review did not post. I submitted a not so favorable review and surprise Samsung did not post. I am quite shocked as I love all of my Samsung products, they would chose not to post my review. I had 2 watches because the first was broken. The speaker was fuzzy and did not work. The second watch was broken too so I returned it. I did however use it for almost 2 full weeks. In that time, I realized that it was uncomfortable to wear and very clumsy. The voice function did not work well. Other than being a giant speaker phone on my wrist, I never missed this watch while wearing it. In fact, I did not wear it when I was fearful of water, and potential damage. The functions of the watch were extremely limited to clock face changing and some other health aps. It was fun for a few days then the fun wore off. I would strong wait for either more aps and true function to buy this watch or let them lower the price considerably. I would have rated this higher, but I did not feel compelled to wear or keep the watch as much as I wanted......

Even Better with Tizen Update
from Southern California
Just updated my Gear to Tizen the other day. The Gear was great before but now it is even better! I have sleep issues and it is great that Tizen has 2 different Sleep Apps. I just keep my phone by my bed and place my Gear in sleep mode and viola! - my sleep patterns are monitored! The ped apps are good too. The Tizen update also allows music to be stored on the Gear itself now in the onboard memory! So glad I purchased!
Good smart watch for the price
from Royal Palm Beach, FL, USA
This watch has excellent battery run time, and works great with Evernote in the android version. Even though they don't have Evernote in the Tizen OS update, there are a lot of great apps to make up for that. Both my son and I have the original Galaxy Gear, and we both like them very much. Excellent for when you are in a movie or an important meeting and you need to see if a message is important, or if an important phone number is calling into your phone without disturbing the movie or meeting. Can be nice for answering calls when your hands are busy and you don't want to pull your phone out, such as riding a bike.

I have to say this was a wonderful gift from my husband. I absolutely love it . it could be a little more feminine and use a couple more games like mahjong. I get lots of compliments. and it is perfect when driving.
It does not fit.
from Detroit, MI, USA
If I wear this device more than forty (40) minutes blood flow is lowered with band fully extended. How might this problem be resolved. To date not been able to fix. Makes a very expensive paper weight. Thanks? T.K. Garner.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Lewisville, TX, USA
This is an awesome watch, although the battery life is just ok until you turn of the pedometer then its great. Just wish it was waterproof, or at least splash proof!!
This is a great product
from Toledo, OH, USA
I love this product. The only thing that I would change would be for the band to be removable/replaceable.

One of the best devices I've ever used. I almost use it exclusively for texting and phone calls when I'm on the road. Lots of great features. Thanks to my son in law and daughter (Jeremy and Wendy) for the cool birthday present.

from binghamton ny
I liked the convenience of it but it was just not an everyday thing for me
