Default My thoughts on the Gear

After two days of use I can say that I find no real value in having the Gear. I plan on keeping it just because of the coolness...lol! But really, I haven't used it for anything other than to tell the time.

Pros:
It looks cool
It is neat to have a clock, temp, and weather conditions on your arm
Having a phone on your arm
Having a handy camera on your arm

Cons:
I do not like that it cannot be woke up by touching the screen..got to wake it up with the home button.

I do not like the charging system. If I go out of town then I HAVE to make sure I carry the charging cradle as well. It would have been much better if Samsung would have allowed the charger to plug directly into the Gear.

Every time I receive a Facebook notification all my Gear says is you must view it on your phone. Not useful at all.


Overall, I am not impressed. Knowing what I know now, would I have purchased the Gear...probably not. I did get it at a 30% discount, so I cannot complain to much. But overall usefulness is not very good...it just doesn't do enough to justify the high price.

This is my opinion...if your opinion is the same and/or different...then please post your comments for all of us to see
