Samsung Gear™ 2 Charcoal Black

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 96 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Good Device but compatibility is an issue I have had the Gear 2 since June, 2014. It is a beautiful phone. At first I thought it was too big but after wearing it a while it seemed just the right size. I downloaded a Movado face for it to make it look like a real clock during appropriate situations. Otherwise, I use one of the standard faces. Things I like about it: 1) It looks really nice. 2) The notifications feature is awesome. Any notification you can get in the notification bar of your phone you can get on your watch. You can suppress those you don't want. 3) The pedometer -- sometimes it doesn't seem to be exactly right but you get a good sense of how active you have been. Once I got the watch I started walking more! 4) Phone calls on the watch. I don't always use the watch to take a call but I check to see who is calling on it. If my phone is charging I will take the call on my phone. 4) Picture taking --- Was able to take a short video while on a roller coaster and driving a bump-a-car 5) Heart Rate monitor 6) Sleep monitor 7) Downloaded an app for texting but it is slow to load (I don't use the standard text msg app) 8) S Voice helps 9) Can copy music directly to the phone -- if you have a wireless headset you can jog with just the watch and the headphones and listen to music. 10) Can connect simultaneously to car and phone via bluetooth What I don't like: 1) Texting and mail apps do not work with gmail and hangouts 2) You can select all contacts or only favorites to display on watch --- would like to be able to select by group 3) It will only work with a Samsung phone. 4) Battery life is about a day and a half. All in all it is a very good device. They came to market first with a nice watch. I just worry that after paying $299 I may have to shelve it if I go with another android phone. One of the reasons I never did apple products was because I didn't like being locked in to their ecosystem. I prefer the ability to buy from different manufacturers. December 3, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by it's not a toy it's a superior time saving the device I you a person who enjoys watches and you think the price of this item is too high think about the watches that you paid far more for that only tell the date and maybe 5 other simple options, that you don't need, and if you're a young professional who lives and works in a high paced environment Who has to multitask and every minute of Your hour counts, Then this is a no brainer you must buy this watch. It does far more than advertised and you enjoy it for more than any other watch you ever owned. November 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome wearable! This watch has been on my arm for one day and all I can say is wow! I did my research before purchasing and strongly considered the new Gear S but I wanted the camera. I can say that I still have more to learn about this watch but some of the videos on tips and tricks have really given me a solid foundation of what to do. Thanks Samsung, you guys rocked it again!
