What the hell is this thing.. 350 for an old-fashioned design smartwatch that must be charged everyday? Sony Smartwatch 2 is far more better than this.. Better design, better battery lifetime, water resistant, more sensible price, can sync with many brands of android smarphone.. While Sony are going to release Smartwatch 2, samsung just release it first smartwatch?

to be honest its a smart device. but being restricted to only S4/Note 3, thats silly. hence why i got the Sony one as you can use any android device.

dont get all hot under the collar waiting for android 4.3.
the differences between my new note 3 and my S3 (on 4.2.2) is so small it aint worth it !

S3 & NoteII owners should be happy they not getting 4.3 till December, once 4.3 comes along you also probably be getting Knox just like us S4 & Note 3 users currently have.

For those that don't know what Knox is, it basically puts an end to rooting or flashing older firmware as this will flag up making your warranty void and there no way around it as of it.

Sony became a update king this year so Samsung decided to start sucking at providing updates!!

Also Sony smartwatch is much cheaper n useful than that galaxy gear! Also smartwatch can be used with any device from any brand.....

What, you told note 2 would get update by October. Now it has been pushed again to year end. Tiered of hearing stories from samsung on Note 2 update. Its pathetic that a flagship device being denied update for more than a year. I have already decided not buy any samsung device going forward. Its really shame how samsung treats customers. Bye bye SHAMESUNG.
