    Default What mode of turning the watch on do you use?

    The motion gesture or by hitting the button?

    I wish the motion response was quicker -it's a half second too slow.

    I refuse to use the button as requiring action from my other hand to reach over and turn on my watch screen I consider a fail.

    Both. At night I turn off the motion detection so it won't turn on randomly and waste power. I sleep with it on because I basically never go without a watch.

    Motion..pretty sweet - I want my steps to show and to have the shortcuts, can't find a way to do that.. I don't want to root this thing to enjoy it. 71% battery left at 5pm.

    Default

    Button for me. I did the motion, and found that it was always lighting up, so now it's button time. I too sleep with watch on. I'm not one to remove it, trying to figure out how to charge it while on without getting tangled up in the power cord. .. lol. ..

    Idea. ... wireless universal usb charging receiver. .. All I have to do is sleep on the charging pad. .. lol

    *** I figure someone will get a good laugh about now***

    Me too. Steps and at least the notification shortcut would be great.

    If you put the watch in sleep mode the screen will not turn on, additionally you can set it to blocking mode and notifications will be suppressed as well.

    There is an option to show your total daily step count on the watch face, but if you do this there is room for nothing else besides the time. It would be great to be able to show the step count and a shortcut or two to something else.

    Will the Gear 2 follow the blocking mode I have set up on the S5?

    I expect it would but I don't know for sure. I have mine set to block automatically once it goes to sleep mode.

    If you need me to test let me know. Going to bed now but I can do it I the am.

    I think it does follow along with blocking mode on the phone. I do not have any other setting than that one to stop overnight notifications and I've never noticed it vibrate.
