One of the best and most useful gadgets I've ever received
from Portland, OR, USA
Comments about Samsung Gear 2 Smart Watch - Charcoal Black:
My wife got me the Gear 2 for Christmas and I absolutely love it. I get all my notifications including email, texts, calendar events, Evernote, Google Now, Wunderlist, and more. It has a heart rate monitor, pedometer, the weather, S voice, voice memo and more. I downloaded apps to see all my evernote notes, news articles, a calculator, a real keyboard for text messaging, and the camera works great. It actually takes fairly good pics and has a 15 sec video recorder. It helps me locate my phone. I can store music and pics on it. It also has a timer and stopwatch. Very well built and works perfectly with my Note 3. Not sure what I'd do with out it now. I can make and receive calls and a ton more. Each of these features have worked great so far. Battery life is about three days per charge. I use my phone half the time now. I just love this thing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

best smart watch out there
from Philadelphia, PA, USA
This is what a smart watch should be. I love taking calls on my watch, controlling my tv, and taking pictures when I don't have time to get out my phone..
This watch is amazing!
from Phoenix, AZ, USA
The watch is an overall wonder. I can't imagine going a day without it. I do wish it was more waterproof. I can't use the fitness tracker while swimming laps. It's also hard to use the sleep monitor because it is either charging or the light keeps waking me up when I roll over. Other than that, a home run!

I'm really glad to have the chance to own the second version. I b owned the first version with my note 3 and that was great. Now with the note 4 there are more choices in applications .

Great Watch. Once you get the gear manager downloaded to your smartphone, this device is a pleasure. The App store has wonderful third party support and the watch itself is 100% modifiable to your liking. Battery life is limited like a cell phone but I charge each every night so no real concerns there.
I bought it for its fitness apps and its tie into shealth.. It is perfect for that! But the volume is kind of horrible.. Cant really hear it too well.

Very Good Device but compatibility is an issue
from North Carolina
I have had the Gear 2 since June, 2014. It is a beautiful phone. At first I thought it was too big but after wearing it a while it seemed just the right size. I downloaded a Movado face for it to make it look like a real clock during appropriate situations. Otherwise, I use one of the standard faces. Things I like about it: 1) It looks really nice. 2) The notifications feature is awesome. Any notification you can get in the notification bar of your phone you can get on your watch. You can suppress those you don't want. 3) The pedometer -- sometimes it doesn't seem to be exactly right but you get a good sense of how active you have been. Once I got the watch I started walking more! 4) Phone calls on the watch. I don't always use the watch to take a call but I check to see who is calling on it. If my phone is charging I will take the call on my phone. 4) Picture taking --- Was able to take a short video while on a roller coaster and driving a bump-a-car 5) Heart Rate monitor 6) Sleep monitor 7) Downloaded an app for texting but it is slow to load (I don't use the standard text msg app) 8) S Voice helps 9) Can copy music directly to the phone -- if you have a wireless headset you can jog with just the watch and the headphones and listen to music. 10) Can connect simultaneously to car and phone via bluetooth What I don't like: 1) Texting and mail apps do not work with gmail and hangouts 2) You can select all contacts or only favorites to display on watch --- would like to be able to select by group 3) It will only work with a Samsung phone. 4) Battery life is about a day and a half. All in all it is a very good device. They came to market first with a nice watch. I just worry that after paying $299 I may have to shelve it if I go with another android phone. One of the reasons I never did apple products was because I didn't like being locked in to their ecosystem. I prefer the ability to buy from different manufacturers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great watch , I use it everyday. Would recommend to everyone.
it's not a toy it's a superior time saving the device
from Palm Beach FL
I you a person who enjoys watches and you think the price of this item is too high think about the watches that you paid far more for that only tell the date and maybe 5 other simple options, that you don't need, and if you're a young professional who lives and works in a high paced environment Who has to multitask and every minute of Your hour counts, Then this is a no brainer you must buy this watch. It does far more than advertised and you enjoy it for more than any other watch you ever owned.
