    Samsung Gear S2 Classic 40mm Wi-Fi Stainless-Steel Smartwatch, Leather Strap - Black

    • I'd recommend this watch if you looking for something simple, that nice looking, and has great battery life.
    • Nice looking watch but the BEZEL just fell off after 7 months of use.
    • There are a lot of nice looking watch faces to download and that gives me a lot of variety to choose from.
    • Dislike proprietary O/S as lack of apps and you have to stick with stock/samsung apps to get all the features.
    • Samsung's proprietary O/S gets you nothing but battery life maybe which has shrunk from 2 full days to 1 3/4 in 4 months

    • The band is comfortable to wear and the face of the watch is the perfect size.
    • The face of the watch is the perfect size, super user friendly and elegant
    • It's the right size to look like a real watch rather than a smart device strapped to your wrist.
    • Like the size of this watch, not as big as the s3, nicer for smaller wrists

    Samsung Gear S2 Classic 40mm Wi-Fi Stainless-Steel Smartwatch, Leather Strap - Black

    • I really loved this watch, it has a great screen, battery life is better than expected and rotating bezel works great
    • Received my Samsung watch as a Xmas gift from the hubby, really loved the product but, 8 months later the screen started chipping around the edges and then a hairline crack through the screen.
    • it's very light and the screen itself doesn't look damaged
    • It provides a great screen and good battery life and comfortable on the wrist
    • To tell the time, have to rotate the bezel or press a side button, taking two hands and often starting up the wrong screen or app

    • I was thrilled to see that the fantastically reviewed Gear S2 was being touted as iOS compatible and thought it might be the best of both worlds
    • After owning the watch for 6 months I am extremely disappointed in the exercise tracking capabilities of this the Gear 2

    • Before buying this expensive piece of junk, search "Gear S2 strap breaking" and you will see that it is a very common problem.
    • Here's my experience so far-I started with the s2 classic, which died under washing the dishes
    • I received the Samsung Gear S2 Classic watch in Rose Gold as a birthday gift last week, and am happy with the product

    • This SAMSUNG GEAR S2 SMARTWATCH (Dark Gray) is an interesting gadget, and works as advertised.
    • But as a smartwatch and for what I use it for, mostly fitness applications, it works and the size is just perfect!
    • My suggestion to you all is, if you must buy this watch, get it from Best Buy with a 2 year warranty and make them replace it every year when the battery starts to die as it will.

    • Hopefully more apps become compatible with it but other than that the watch is great.
    • If there is a problem it is that I cannot access some of my favorite Android apps on this watch
    • Can't sync this watch, or its apps, with many popular apps
    • Only downside is I feel that the apps are pretty limited but other than that its sexy smart watch

    • My only complaint would be the battery life when you're using 3g
    • The biggest issue is a very short battery life in between chargings
    • However, the battery life on my watch is absolutely ABYSMAL

    • I sent it to the Samsung and they were unable to repair the watch or honor the warranty as they did not have the parts or the software to fix it.
    • The only downside to this smartwatch is that the battery drains so quickly

    • Lack of apps is one weakness, app store is much smaller and folks love to charge for apps there.
    • I sent it to the Samsung and they were unable to repair the watch or honor the warranty as they did not have the parts or the software to fix it.
    • This smartwatch is beautiful and works seamlessly, however, the lack of apps is really frustrating.
    • Anyway, that's just my impression.- Lack of apps: can be an issue... there are more watch faces than apps.

    Samsung Gear S2 Classic 40mm Wi-Fi Stainless-Steel Smartwatch, Leather Strap - Black

    • I went with the Classic rather than the Dark Gray because of all the horror stories of the rubber bands breaking with pieces of them getting stuck in the watch and little to no support on the part of Samsung to rectify the issue
    • Even though HR is on demand meaning you need to touch the screen to check heart rate it does not bother me as I thought it would

    • If I include the name of the recipient in the initial command, S-Voice fails each and every time
    • It's a good smartwatch, but I bought it for easy voice control, and it does not have a quality voice control
    • S-Voice kicked back an error saying it couldn't complete the command
    • Oh, and I almost forgot, Samsung's S-Voice is just hit or miss so far in my experience (same with my GS6 Edge Plus)

    • You could end up with an unusable device and Samsung support will not assist with the unlock.
    • I have now decided that since Samsung has such an unreliable and irresponsible support system then I cannot trust them with my regular credit card information and will instead purchase a gift card to add to my Samsung account so that my exposure to their incompetence is limited.
    • Not providing support for Android proper is bad enough, Samsung doesn't even provide adequate security support for their devices.
    • Samsung support is just terrible, I had to explain to them 10 times what was going on with the watch, (I'm not exaggerating) and after ten messages they stop texting me back

    • The 2 versions of straps that came in the original boxing all got damaged
    • S-health on the Gear S2 doesn't work the same as the version on the Galaxy phone.
    • It is very disappointing to use a Samsung phone that is feature rich with google maps, Gmail, and Play, only to have a matching watch that basically forces you to use Samsung's crappier, buggier versions of google apps.
    • We don't believe there's any way to tell if the product is an international version short of having Samsung validate the serial number on the watch

    • I'm with T-Mobile and so its only an extra $5 a month and TOTALLY worth it

    • at least 2 or 3 different versions of the Gear S2.Mine is the standalone capable model with its own phone number
    • $350 at AT&T store with Sim card which means its own phone number
    • Also, this watch has phone number and I will loose my phone couple of weeks.
    • I was told by Verizon once I received the watch to contact Verizon sales for them to assign the watch a seperate phone number.
    • Apparently the watch interfaces with the cellular system, so you need to buy another phone number.
