Samsung Gear 2 Neo Mocha Gray

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 113 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's pretty useful I initially wasn't sure if I really needed a smart watch, but I noticed I was constantly fishing my phone out of my pocket for little things like the time, or a quick look at the weather. There were also some features I was really interested in, like sleep tracking. After owning this watch for about 3 and a half months, I've found it very useful. It also draws a lot of attention from people curious about the watch. The feature they're most in awe of is the ability to answer or make calls from the watch (which admittedly is a feature I do like, but don't use very much). To me, the ability to track my sleep and make quick voice memos is the most useful, followed by seeing who's calling or texting without having to dig the phone out every single time, and then email and other notifications. The only really disappointing thing is that sometimes the watch seems to slip down my wrist, so maybe the watch band could be a bit better, and the battery life can sometimes seem pretty low, though I think that has a lot to do with which apps are installed on the watch and how often I use them. In general I have to charge it to full every 2-3 days, though I tend to prefer putting it on the charger for a shorter period every single day rather than leaving it on for longer periods every few days. I opted for the model without the built in camera since I would have never used it anyway. They could do away with the ability to use the watch as a remote and I'd be fine with that as well. Overall though, I'm glad I purchased the watch . July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by bought this a week ago I bought this because I am a nurse, and I was wearing an activity tracker that had a watch, but no second hand, which I need , and I didn't want to wear both on my wrist. I was torn between the Gear fit and the neo 2. I was going to get just the fit because of cost and use the second hand app, but found the neo 2 on special, and with a gift certificate I had, it brought the price within $20.00. I felt it was very worth it, due to the different capabilities of the neo 2 vs gear. I have NOT been disappointed! It was VERY easy to sync with my Samsung Galaxy s5 and has worked very well. I am very impressed with the sound quality of the phone calls, and have had no one complain about bad sound on their end. I LOVE the s-voice capabilities for texting while driving, there really isn't anything I don't like about this watch. Once again Samsung, you have made me a very happy girl! July 9, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Feel a bit misled in terms of its water resistance. I bought the gear 2 neo a little more than a year ago. As it turns out it has run quite well for that year. But just a week ago I had the unfortunate experience of having it get submerged in about 4-6 inches of water for only about 3-5 minutes. At first I didnt think much about it because the logic of IP67 seems to state that the item should survive being submerged for up 30 minutes at less than 1 meter of depth. Much to my surprise a few minutes after this I went to check the time and discovered the watch had stopped working. I came to discover the watch had leaked through the IR window and fried the circuitry inside. I feel that the IP67 rating on the watch is a bit misleading, especially since the rating clearly states 30 minutes 1 meter... I am bummed at the loss of my watch, but I feel you should know. I have attached 2 snippets from the gear 2 manual stating the IP67 water resistance (PG 14, & PG 69). July 2, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bad design of charging The contacts for charging on the back get dirty very easy and will not allow contact for charging with out being cleaned ever time. Gets old in a hurry having to clean the contacts. Other wise I liked the watch. It will not even charge now how ever. So I am not able to wear it any more. June 27, 2015
