    This review is from: Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch – Silver/Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
    I did not have original Galaxy Gear, so my impression is not comparative. I like hardware a lot. It feels comfortable on the wrist – not too heavy, not wobbly. Clasp is excellent. Took all of 3 seconds to adjust it just right. I also like the fact that you can easily re-adjust it at any time. You know how in the morning sometimes your wrist is a bit bloated and watch strap becomes too tight? Not a problem here. Watch has a very minimalistic and classy look to it. Nothing extra, brushed metal look is very subtle and solid. I was amazed how accurately screen comes on when you raise your wrist to look at it. And only when you look at it. No false activation and when you do look at it watch responds promptly with 100% accuracy. No need to do anything unnatural. Excellent!
    Camera is surprisingly good. In daylight. After dusk it does not pick up anything. At all. Just black screen. But daylight pictures look almost the same as the ones taken with my Galaxy Note 3 on Note’s screen. Of course, if you zoom in you will see difference. But for all kinds of quick snapshots – cute moments, notes, parked car location – it will work swimmingly.
    Screen is a pure delight. Has brightness levels 1-6. 4 is default and is very bright. You can turn it up to 6 and it can blind you even under the brightest sunlight. Neat thing – watch will reverse back to level 4 brightness after 5 minutes of inactivity.
    I don’t know if it was the case with original Gear, and I have not seen it mentioned anywhere about Gear 2, but charging cradle is not just for charging. If you connect it to USB port you will get yourself a flash drive. With 2.81G of space. Unlike Android devices all system folders are hidden. So I don’t know if one can sideload 3rd party apps. You just have “Music”, “Sounds”, “Images”, “DCIM”, “Videos” and “Downloads” folders.
    Now the things that puzzled me. WHERE ARE ALL THE APPS??? Besides the ones preloaded on the watch Samsung App store offers “whopping” 18 apps. That’s right. Not 100+ as Samsung claimed, not even “dozens” as some reviewers claimed. Maybe I am missing something. I am not a “XDA developer”, but not a novice either. I am no stranger to custom ROMs and sideloading 3rd party apps. But with switch to Tizen Samsung shut off Google Play store.
    Watch doesn’t even have an alarm. It can only show you notifications from alarm clock running on your phone or tablet. I am a big fan of analog watch faces, but need to have a little date window as well. No luck here.
    I think all necessary hardware is here. But software part is not just under-baked – it is pretty much nonexistent. Where is promised Evernote, CNN, Expedia, eBay? What happened? All developers bailed and went to write for Google Wear?
    I am going to give it a month till my return period expires. I love the hardware – but I need software to support it.

    Decent upgrade for second generation, April 22, 2014

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I received my new Gear 2 last Saturday morning via USPS, three days after ordering from a third party seller. I decided to order from a third party seller earlier in the week due to the fact that Amazon was still “Temporarily out of stock” on this item with no updates in over a week on when they’d get their stock and start shipping to customers. I had originally ordered from Amazon around a week prior and they still hadn’t shipped or updated me at all, so I cancelled the order afterwards because I had no information on when Amazon would have the Gear 2 in stock. Being a Prime customer, it was upsetting that I had to “resort” to purchasing from a third party seller since usually shipping times are much longer. I expected better service and more specific communication from Amazon, especially since the demand for this product was so extensive. Luckily though, it seems that I made a lucky choice of third party seller to buy from because they shipped same-day and the product was packed safely and securely and arrived in about 3 days.

    Something important to note is that some sellers are currently selling the Gear 2 for around $320. People avoid these prices, believing they are overpriced, not realizing that Amazon applies sales tax in most states only for items purchased from Amazon directly, which would have made the total cost rise to around $320 at checkout. In this case, there was pretty much no downside purchasing from a third party seller considering there was no estimate for when Amazon would receive their stock, so I decided to make my move and purchased from a seemingly reliable seller. It’s also important to note that customers purchasing from third party sellers are exempt from sales tax if the customer resides outside of the seller’s state. So, the Gear 2 was around the same price no matter where I purchased from.

    Anyways, after having used the Gear 2 for a few days, my thoughts and views are overall positive. Something I found odd was, being in the Computer Science field and having done extensive online research before purchasing, I quickly realized that my views and experience with the Gear 2 hardly matched what negative comments were being spread by the media in news articles, reviews, and opinions and commentaries throughout the past week. The media’s stories focused on the belief that the Gear 2 added no benefit and didn’t provide any increased functionality due to the fact that it didn’t offer anything “special” and didn’t provide any extra functionality that couldn’t be found on a typical smartphone. Various news articles blatantly state that buying a Gear 2 was a huge waste money.

    I took these articles like a grain of salt. I saw the arguments mostly as opinions than anything else, I wanted to test it for myself and make up my own mind, and that’s exactly what I did.

    At first use, it was really easy to notice the key benefit of the Gear 2, the fact that it’s an incredible time saver. Smartphones are not very when you’re on the go, because they aren’t generally something you can just glance at without diverting your attention entirely towards it temporarily. If this is at work, smartphone use negatively affects your productivity. If this is while driving, smartphones are unsafe and illegal because they take attention completely off the road.

    For me, increase in time efficiency is the most important and obvious benefit offered by using the Gear 2. Unlike others, I don’t care that the Gear 2 replicates smartphone functionality because of the aforementioned benefit. That doesn’t make it any less of a useful device. What makes the Gear 2 useful is the fact that information that would have taken me 20 to 30 seconds to access on my smartphone can be accessed in just a couple seconds on the Gear 2 with a simple tilt of the wrist, swipe and tap. The Gear 2 clearly me saves time and effort, and it’s shown me that it’s an extremely handy device that has incredible potential.

    Anyways…enough of me defending the Gear 2, that’s not the purpose of reviews.

    I’ve gotten in the habit of wearing the Gear 2 almost 24/7. I even keep it on while going to bed since it has so many uses. Just as a series of examples, right before bed, the Gear 2 allows me to: start tracking my sleep time, to set alarms for next morning just by speaking, check my appointments and calendar for tomorrow as well as the weather forecast, and replace the need to track down the TV remote control when I want to watch a late-night show right before bed.

    Looking back, I can see that the Gear 2 has helped keep me on track, focused, and organized since I started using it. You’ve got to push yourself to improve though, you can’t expect improvement otherwise. However, the Gear 2 seems like a Swiss Army knife in the form of a tech gadget. There are just so many features and so much beneficial functionality included just via the default…

    Pure “awesomeness” for a tech savvy person, 5-stars Samsung!, April 15, 2014
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch – Silver/Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
    I was an early adopter of the Gear 1 and surprisingly I fell in love with the product rather quickly. Mind you I was never a watch person – so I was skeptical whether or not I would like it. There’s a few reasons I learned to enjoy the first version and upgraded to the Gear 2.

    1) If my phone is in my pocket, bag, or another room, I can see who was calling or texting and answer, delay, or reply from my watch.

    2) My favorite thing to do is to change the watch face color and design for the holiday, season or event. I can even change the watch face to match my shirt color for the day. Waiting for the full watch styler for the Gear 2…

    3) Phone Locator. Yes, sometimes I misplace my phone. The gear had a phone finder feature which surprisingly came in handy on an occasion or two.

    4) Style. In my opinion it looks sharp. I am a business professional and I think it looks great with a suit.

    5) Safety. Going back to number 1. While driving, I don’t have to fumble around for a phone. I can see who is calling and answer in a split second – eyes on the road. To me, that was worth the $300 price of admission by itself.

    6) Watch of course! I will not wear a regular watch that simply tells time; that is not enough. However when my watch answers calls, makes calls, reads texts, changes face themes to match my shirt color, takes my heart rate, acts as a mini personal trainer, snaps pictures, records quick voice notes, has a television remote, includes a stand-alone Bluetooth music player, and has easily switchable bands, now we’re talking about something I’ll wear every day (and it just so happens to tell me the time and date).

    Price note: This version of the watch is $300, if you must have the brushed aluminum and the camera. For me, I didn’t mind spending the extra dough. For someone who feels (and reviews) $300 is a bit steep – there is the Neo version! Kudo’s to Samsung for creating a less expensive version for those not comfortable at this price point.

    Bottom line: I enjoyed the Gear 1 and with the additional new improvements, I’m very pleased to own a Gear 2. I find it very useful on a day to day basis!
