Another thing that doesn't hold up well under water on the Samsung Gear s2 Classic is the shiny bezel. Mine flew off yesterday as I was washing my hands, and the watch is only 11 months old. Luckily, I recorded the homemade repair and fixed it for free! Overall, it's a great smartwatch and I love it.
Theresa Dillon yes it can if you have the LTE version like I do through T Mobile. Works great for calls and has its own sim inside so that means you can leave your phone at home, work, car, etc. and use your watch as a standalone platform where all your calls, messages and emails are forwarded directly to your watch in real time so you'll never miss a thing, even if you don't have the phone on you! It knows to switch from wifi, Bluetooth or 3G LTE automatically depending on where it's at in proximity to your phone. It's pretty awesome really. But all that means you must buy the LTE version of the watch not the Bluetooth only. Be careful there. Hopefully that helped. Good luck!
Ramon Gonzalez gear s2 as it's cheaper and with the same functions, not only that it's up to you whether or not you want your watch to look like a normal watch or more techie such as Apple both a great
I used to have the G Watch r and compared to this watch it's huge. if you go from the G Watch r to this watch you will notice the size difference. This was a small the reviewer has tiny wrists so that's why it looks kind of big but two people with normal man wrist this thing is small
This was a good video. I'm looking at purchasing this now that Samsung claimed that it would be compatible with IOS later this year. This looks a lot cooler than the Apple Watch. Having a square watch face is just really weird lol
Hey guys, I just bought one of these, the app is not compatible with my phone, my phone is 2 old. I am in the position to buy a new phone that works with this watch. Can anyone tell me what phone works well with this?? :)
I just purchased the Samsung Gear S2 and was wondering if there is a way to set the display so that my phone doesn't go blank within 5-10 seconds? I would like to keep it on for 1-5 minutes at a time if possible. Thanks!!
