Super Ali, 17 Nov 2014Hi..plz let me know if this watch is cased with Gorilla glass, also is it water resistant?, Go... moreIt is not quite clear that it has gorilla glass but i am not too sure.... it is however DUST resistant and WATER resistant.....dont get confused for water proof......
water resistant means it can be dropped in still water for no more then 30 minutes and the water has to be less then 3 meters deep.... but if u put the water in running fast water or under running water in the sing or take it below 3 meters it will mess up the watch....

Please an... morewithout being connected to the phone by BLUETOOTH it will switch to NETWORK connection REMOTELY.... but you have to turn on call fowarding from the phone and device before you leave it behind or it will not receive incomming calls from the phone...it will be a STANDALONE device... the watch ahs a simcard and has its OWN NUMBER...so if u dont connect remotely and or by bluetooth to the watch it will use its own number and that means it has its own data and talk plan
The watch does operate standalone it has both hspa+ and wifi to connect to data/phone services. It also pairs up with any Samsung phone operating on android 4.3 and later. Which means I can be in California my Note can be in Texas and I receive all my messages notifications phone calls just as if the phone was in my hand. The watch can be connected to wireless bluetooth headset for those that feel silly talking to a watch. It has a web browser so it can do all mobile sites (facebook,twitter,amazon, google) the only thing I think its missing is youtube and video player. other than that this is a perfect smart watch, The screen is amazing and it has a fully functional swipe enabled keyboard with great auto correction.

I hv bought this gear s, within 1 week use i hv a few minor scratches... so sad... no gorilla glass or saphire glass protection... poor UI, not very responsive n lack of sensitivity and also occasional stutter lag... high price, very nice design but very poor hardware...

manual to activate watach without phone : press on liltle watch 25-30 time on new scren press and hold about 5 seconds redy watch can now wark without phone on its own sim card.
you entered the watch world...
but no info about strap length? how we would know would this fit for small, medium, Large or XXL size wrists? so wouldn't be good to provide info regarding this issue.
I picked this up from verizon today. It is $5 per month. I carry 2 phones one personal and one work. I was able to take note (Work) as main number and put personal number in watch. When away from note example leave in truck while in store and it receives a call After 3 rings it forwards to watch. Watch is stand alone with personal number. I now can carry one phone :)

You can use it as a stand alone device. That is why they give you a phone number when you activate it. Under settings go to the call menu and switch turn off Bluetooth then it should start working. I tried this as soon as I activated my gear s. It made the call without pairing to my s4. I also noticed that as long as you have a samsung device to do the initial setup, you can actually turn off the call forwarding that phone and set up call forwarding on any other phone to go to your gear s. I have a s4 with work phone but my personal is a LG G3.

It's 15 bucks a month unlimited everything. So as far as them saying it's not a stand alone device, I'm not sure as mine is set up as such.
