I love the idea of this watch but like many others do not intend to run a Samsung phone with it. If set up can be done without them then that is great news. If you search 'Tizen samsung s gear unpacked' into YouTube then you can hear what is said straight from the top. Makes an interesting view.
I like it very much, problem is Battery can't last one day,especially with the SIM Card.

Can anyone tell me if this watch can run solo with a normal sim that I remove from my mobile phone, or does it have to be linked with a number that is on a host phone?
I can't wait to get this watch! I'm hoping they don't force me to have a cell phone. I have little need for a cell phone or voice service and the added cost would make it too expensive. I currently just carry a $10mo TracFone for my voice needs and work off of an $26mo iPAD. I need a good low cost data plan with little voice costs.
Wish they'd give a release ate for the USA!
@neil. Today I found the user manual for this watch. Yes, there is mentions of pairing. The wording is *can* , and not *requiered*. Firmware seems to be upgradable with Samsung Kies or OTA. I'm canceling my pre- order untill it's clear on how this actualy work and what devices are supported. I'm not going with a Samsung phone for a Samsung watch.
This device it the perfect companion for using a tablet as a cell phone. I currently use the Note 10.1 2014 (SM-P605) as my only cell phone. Yes this is an actual cell phone. It is the non US variant. It is so great using one device for everything. I use to carry around a cell phone and a tablet. I'm now of the opinion that any phone is too big as I don't what to put any of them in my pocket. So excited to pair this with my tablet.
