I am thinking to use the tablet only as wi fi and insert the sim bis into the gear S . Does the gear S work with WIFI properly ? and can you reply to whatsapp messages ?
Its comfortable to wear, lightweight, great volume and clarity, full of features and very handy to have, definitely worth every penny
Love it. I have had mine for 1 month now and enjoying the features of a wearable! I get over 2 days battery life but that is probably because I don't have a SIM card in it and only link it to my phone. Definitely worth considering if you are in the market.
Who writes these stats or reviews. I have the Samsung Gear S and I have to charge it daily. Where do you get the 96 hours of standby time from? Is that with the watch in the off mode?
its just fab .samsung has created a small mobilephone.its so easy to carry and lightweight found it very handy nd useful
The best smart watch in the market in early January 2015, bar none. Nothing comes even close to it. Having read / watched on YT enthusiastic professional reviews and seeing/touching/playing with it at Best Buy I cannot be more excited about the future of this category and what the Koreans are doing right now! The manufacturer is pushing the envelope and is bringing us an exciting technological experience. Gear S will allow me to leave my next expensive phone in a car or at home and have Gear S with me all the time. It is a thing of beauty. Apple will have a big problem if they do not match if for what it is - a standalone device (a smart phone in its own right). Samsung should not lock this device though to the selected Samsung phones only, but make it available to any one, an iPhone, any Android and yes, the new crop of BlackBerry Passport/Classic ones as well. The UI is very good, the gesture based interaction - excellent. There is so much to “love” about this smart-watch-phone...
What I did not like: the lack of camera - yes, I want one. An unnecessary step back from their previous offerings. Also, give me the best snapper, while we are at it - at least a 3MP one or even more if you can… There is a place there up front above the screen. Even if I do not use one often, except for Skype or Viber I want the full Dick Tracey experience :-).
Also a 4 GB sealed-in memory is not enough. Give me the external slot for at lest 16 GB microSD card (as I have read a competitor already has, so it is possible) or go all the way up to the current limit of 128 GB, if you can. Why not? Pull out all the stops. Give me a better processor - the baddest one you can shoehorn in there. Be different and bold and you will sell tens of millions of copies establishing yourself as an undisputed technological leader in the smart watch arena. Also FB, Viber, Skype are must have apps for me. I hope developers will join the Tizen bandwagon, as Samsung is opening to us the totally new experience and possibilities. I would love to snap this one, as all my cons are not a deal breaker, but I think Samsung can do better, and I do not want to give them a pass yet, so that they stay focused on giving us the best the money can buy. Keep trowing at the wall and I shall stick with your next improved version.
Without straPParts - Samsung Gear S - just a device for freaks and sportsmans

Can a Bluetooth Headset and a Note4 simultaneously be connected to Gear S and used to receive calls from Gear S either diverted from Note 4 or received on Gear S own network?
question, 28 Dec 2014Can it work without connecting to a phone? Please answer. Thank youOf Course, it can work without connecting to a phone. I am using my gear thus alone
I have it for a month now....I love the watch... No complain....Very responsive and fast...Speaker in close area brilliant. The screen is unmatched...I am a moderate user and the battery is good for me between 2.5 to 3 days easily (I use mostly for notification, checking the news, and answering some SMS). There is a 3rd party application that allow you to answer WhatsApp messages.
