Will the Gear S work with any Android smartphone. I recall the first watch only worked on Samsung phones.
i love gear s.please show us more picture of gear s in your site. more different colore of this watch is my dream.partial equipment such as hands free bluetooth for calling from this device is needed
Im waiting for this; but to anyone who says "a gear should not have a camera" Get back to apple jerk; the magical thing abiut the gear is the camera; after the phonecalls followed by the awesomness of all these little apps; no camera is like retrograding to Motorola ridiculous watch; il buy it even without; but im desapointed.
AnneDroid, 10 Sep 2014I hate to say this but, judging from the current GEAR. I wouldn't be caught dead spoting this ... moreAre you serious?! The only change i would suggest to samsung gear s, is to reduce its size. It is a perfect smartwatch which all other makers will copy in the future. Apple watch is just a nice little box. Does not even begin to compare with the older samsung gear range.
I have a galaxy gear and I have never used the camera. A watch does not need a camera. Gear S looks great and definitely will buy one.
hagar, 15 Sep 2014Useless because it doesn't have a camera.what do you expect? do you need flashlight as well?
Guys this isnt a smartfone ita a smart gadet watch that is ahy it dosent have camera....
I think the Samsung Gear S is appealing for a smart watch technology. I like the face, the colors that are offered, the photo and video viewer, the resolution and how it is water resistant. Also its an organizer.
I like the wearable technology for people who are into sports. I don't see myself as one to wear this technology but its great for others. I think Samsung is right for being innovative with its own wearable Samsung Smart Watch.
SS, 11 Sep 2014Do you know what the major stepback other than camera? It needs a Android 4.3 compatible Samsu... moreThere are enough people with Android phones with 4.3 that it shouldn't be a problem. You should have a galaxie s or note anyway.
Smartphone cameras are very useful in everiday pro life, not only to make video calls but, just to cite an example, when reading panels with several info om them instead of noting everything down every time. A simple camera would have been more useful than a dual core processor IMHO. Not really substituting the possession of a smartphone yet.
Perfect specs for a smartwatch. Just needs to run full Android rather than Tizen. I really appreciate this as the first smartwatch with acceptable display resolution.
- Run Android.
- More normal width band. This looks ridiculous.
- Mirasol type display would be better for battery and outdoor visibility. I don't care about color quality for images on a tiny screen.
joe, 11 Sep 2014wondering if it is possible to add solar energy receiver built on a watch strap. not possible!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you know what the major stepback other than camera? It needs a Android 4.3 compatible Samsung device to install apps on the watch, which keeps it from becoming a fully standalone watch.
