My hope is to leave my larger Note 3 in my pocket when I'm in my car or walking around and handle phone calls on the Gear, without having to use a headset. I'm even hoping to get rid of the watch band (although I doubt I can, it's connected electronically and also probably has antennas) and carry it around like a mini phone.
It's my understanding that the Gear watch can answer calls as it also has a built-in speaker and mic on the watch band.
