    One of my co-workers shares your preference in that he wants a stand-alone watchphone. If the Gear had had standalone functionality, I probably would have tried it because I like tech gadgets that much. But now that I have a watch that works as a Bluetooth accessory, I have a preference for this method of connectivity.
    I would love a straight watch phone [as long as that includes text msgs and email built into the phone like an good phone does. Than my tablet would be for gaming and Web browsing. But since we don't have that option yet this works.. like you it is so nice to be able to get to the phone (via the watch) before it stops ringing which is what has always been the way in the past..

    Yea, I was thinking the same thing...

    Also, many people returned the $300 GG to get it at the discounted price of $209.

    Who knows, the truth is, like everything, there will always be supporters and nay-sayers!

    I still want it, but at the moment I would only buy it if it was sold for less then $100!

I and 905% of others have no problem looking at their phone & responding like they should! The key point here is RESPOND! I am sure a lot of people who, don't care anyway about responding, would love that they got nagged 300+ a day by their watch that has absolutely no functionality with out some connection to the device you should be communicating through anyway!!

    People value things different; people have different levels of disposable income. If it's not worth $300 for you, that's fine. It's great that you purchased a $500+ watch. Hell, I can buy 20 of these Gear watches for the price of my Panerai. See how douchy it is to try and qualify yourself by saying you've purchased something that was more expensive? LOL Gear watch to me is a nice accessory to have where $300 isn't too bad when it comes to being able to answer the phone and do a quick check of any messages to go along with the S-health features. I can see where a person can value that and for those who are always on the go. I ended up returning it since there wasn't enough for me with it, and I don't want something to just take up space. These value arguments generally go no where as people value things differently; it's especially pointless to cry on a forum if something is too expensive or too cheap because people value things differently. There are guys out there with $200k exotic cars using a $75k BMW to buy groceries yet a $15k Honda would do just fine. Would you scream at those exotic car owners because OMG IT'S TOO EXPENSIVE! Get real.

    Like with everything, it comes to functionality, aesthetics, and what it's worth to you. If someone has a use for it, great.

    Everyone at the Verizon store I've been going to is pushing the galaxy gear, and once someone explained to me what it did and how much it cost, I said I pass on it. To me it just seems redundant. I always carry my cellphone on me, so why do I need to pay $300 for something else to do what it does. I love new technology as much as the next guy, getting more and more like the Jetsons all the time. To me it's big and bulky, plus as I've said, redundant. More power to you if that's your thing.

    Samsung rep told me yesterday that they are having trouble with the gear and sweating. Seems where the contacts are for the charging dock if you get sweaty it can come in contact with those and cause problems

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I happen to think its a nice looking piece of tech. Its not meant to be a Movado, Breitling, Omea, Rolex, etc. Its mean to be technology centered with a display.

    I have been a bit concerned about that, but they do put a 1 year warranty on it and likely in that time frame if a problem happened they will get a lot of factory repairs. Perahps they should should have gone microUSB on the left side.
