Re: Samsung Gear S2!

Thank's for sharing @ShakTib Smiley Happy

 

I'd call it a smart phone extension on your wrist. I had a chance to check out the multiple features and I think my favorite is the VW app and the Kevo app. The idea of being able to remotely lock/unlock the car and house door from your wrist sounds pretty cool to me. I know, I know the watch has way more usable/sensible features but that's all I got for now. Smiley Embarassed

Re: Samsung Gear S2!

"Apparently" it can be standalone from the get-go... no need to pair it with a smartphone.

O_o I doubt samsung will push that ... I watched the presentation by samsung at their launch... and they stated the Gear S2 is standalone and doesn't need to pair for activation. (like the other gears did, including S which I really liked)

Re: Samsung Gear S2!

Hello @ShakTiburon

They announced this when the Note 5 and S6 edge plus was announced, late to the game lol.

I do like the watch. I had the Gear 2 neo and the first Samsung Gear and currently I do wear my Sony Smartwatch 3 but planning on buying this one when it comes out!

It's a different design and adds more features then before!

Re: Samsung Gear S2!

I have the Gear 2neo and Still wear my Original Gear (even till this day)...

o__o I am aware I am late, VERY LATE, to the game...

but, the excitment compels me to share! 😄

The clicky feeling, ooo makes me melt. lol
Only downside (again), no Camera. 😐
That's why I didn't get the Gear S.
I really like the camera on my Gear. It's useful to me.

Hello @ShakTiburon

Honestly having a camera on your watch I find it very disturbing and some can use it in the wrong way. While I agree the camera is a nice feature, I like watches that don't have one.

Re: Samsung Gear S2!

@Meowmix Camera in EVERYTHING. is my thing. lol
If something doesn't have a camera, I want camera in it.
o__o Imgery has always been my thing.

Gear 2 was good though, Camera and IR blaster. They should have kept that - Especially if they are removing it from their phones.

 

@RogersArthur - Do you android? would this be an interest to you?

Re: Samsung Gear S2!

@ShakTiburon, Although I own a DSLR, digital camera which I don't travel around with, but travel with an Android device, Blackberry and Classic phone. Having a camera on my wrist wouldn't hurt, just don't like the idea of paying extra for it. Smiley Frustrated

Re: Samsung Gear S2!

Hey @RogersArthur

I use Gear as my tester shots, when I am walking in a new area to review once I get home to see if the location would be good for a photoshoot.

For sure DSLR would be the camera for proper shots, but for "snap shots" I use Gear more than my phone... Quality isn't bad to be honest...
