I love this watch and get compliments on it all the time. The phone function is great and I can talk completely hands free. I find it particularly useful when I am driving as my wrist is next to my mouth on the steering wheel. The S Voice on this might actually be better than on the phone and I rarely have to repeat myself. The bluetooth range is remarkable, sometimes I leave my phone downstairs and still can take a call on the watch. I also love the pedometer and timer features very useful. The only drawbacks that I have seen so far is that they need to make more apps for it and it is way too easy to turn on the camera feature which I accidentally do a lot.
I am hearing impaired and love that I got notices and phone calls so close to my good ear. I can always pick up my smartphone once I answer my \"Shelley Tracy Watch\". I always have a camera at my finger tips and I can make a note to remember to do something. Love the Pedometer too. I am a musician and playing music is like a workout. Now I get credit for all my energy. A little large, but I call it a fashion statement. Thanks for offer this product, I had wanted one, but didn't want to spend $300.00.
The Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch we thought was supposed to sync with android phones. We gave this as a Christmas gift to our son, who has an android. It does not work. Because the product had to be returned in 2 weeks time, that window was past because we had send it to our son who happens to be serving in the Navy. Needless to say, he and we were disappointed. So, no, we would not recommend it.
This is a great watch. I don't miss phone calls Andy more or any of my notifications. Downfall the part where you click the watch close on your arm opens more than I would like it too. The mic is in a weird place and with it is where you click it close. Camera is OK not a good spot either. I like everything else. Gonna upgrade though hopefully the latch part is better.
This watch was a Christmas gift for my teenage daughter. Getting the info on what phones were compatible was a little confusing. I would recommend to go to the Samsung website and do some reading before buying your phone to go with the watch, if you purchase the watch first. Not all Samsung phones are compatible. My daughter loves the watch. Great price on Groupon
It's a clever little gadget, but a little awkward to use. It will do all sorts of things, but more trouble that they're worth. I bought it on a whim as the prices were coming down. Since I have the phone with me anyway, I'll just use all the features on the phone rather than the watch. Very cool concept, though.
Even if this is a first generation watch, it had exceeded my expectations and needs. Minimal setup, no maintenance. The charging cradle was awkward to use at first, but I'm slowly getting used to using it. Average use between charges is about 1 1/2 days.
I'm forgetful and leave my phone everywhere, the watch tells me when my phone is out of range or I can use it to find my phone even when the phone is on silent. Makes reading texts and answering calls easier on the go. Easy to set quick reminders too
I'm a \"gadget girl\" so I was pleased with my purchase. However, my expectations were not fully met as my purpose for having it was so that I would not have to carry around my Note 3. If you get too far from the phone itself, the gear disconnects. :-( I'm still learning its features though.
I think the watch is great for simple tasks. I don't have to take my phone out of my pocket to see the time, read a text or see who is calling me, or even to take a picture of something for that matter! I enjoy a phone with a large screen for internet, games and videos and the watch is a great way to have quick access to several common tasks.
