    Well after nearly 3 months, I got the G shock watch. After modifying the band to fit my tiny wrist. I paired the phone up with my Commando 4G . However I can't get the caller ID to display. All the watch does is show the dancing guy. Same story when paired to my Galaxy S4. Ive got call notification turned on. I see the name when the call is missed but not as its happening. Anyone else having this issue?

    You have to change the setting on the watch. Look in the manual for the watch which can be found online.

    Found it. I had to turn off the dancing guy icon. Now it shows number only on my Galaxy S4 but does show name while a call is coming in.

    However while S4 shows the name of the current caller (if in phone book) the Commando 4G will only show the number regardless of name is in the phone book or not.

    on my Gz, it shows me contact names for known numbers, and digits for unknown.

    its a shame they didnt leave the watch open to firmware updates..

    Mine shows names for contacts in Google. Contacts in Backup Assistant show number only.
