How is the delay for screen turn on when you want to just check the time?
How well does S-voice work for replying to a text message? I'm assuming if there is a mistake, you have to start over?
I have pre-ordered a HotWatch, but will buy and try the Gear once the Christmas shopping season with longer return policies start. Gear looks great, and has a larger color screen. But the screen turns off and will be harder to see in sunlight, and will be too bright in low light conditions if you have it set for outdoor viewing. HotWatch has a screen that always stays on (at least I think so), will be very easy to see in the sunlight, won't be too bright in the dark, will have small keyboard to reply to text messages, has directional speaker for more private calls, is half the price, but doesn't look as good, and screen is not color. Decisions, decisions....
