    Default Gear2 NEO Charging Dock

    Has anyone been able to find a part number or been able to purchase a new charging dock/clip for the GEAR 2 Neo?
    I called into Samsung last Friday and they were going to research it and get back to me, however Samsung cust. support seem to be very willing to drop this like a hot potato.
    I'm keen to own 2 or 3. They are small enough that just one carried everywhere might get lost. I'm hoping they are not $40+ each.

    I sent an email to Samsung about the same thing - the Gear 2 Neo charging dock. They have not responded.

    I called Samsung about this and they are not available for sale yet. The phone rep said he was unsure when they would be.

    Until they are on the market, I'm taking a cue from Flossy Carter and unplugging the charger but leaving the dock attached to the charging cord at all times. And I am placing both pieces in a pet-free zone.

    I charged my watch last night using a standard USB charger and it had no probs. There maybe some magic in the dock but the USB charger seems to be very standard.

    Same here, using a standard USB charger seems to work fine.

    How could you possibly use a standard USB charger for the watch? I don't understand, i've already lost my charging dock/clip and am looking for a replacement

    They meant they were using a usb cable that was not provided in the box with the Gear 2. They were still using the adapter clip.

    Darn it, I thought maybe there was a way without the clip, if anyone finds a source online for one, pls post it up, my watch is now dead and not charging!

    The wall zit charger is a separate item IMO from the clip on dock connector. In the galaxy Tab/Note charger there is some magic circuitry to try to make the charger and cable dedicated to the device it is readily worked around. It would not surprise me if the dock clip on the gear 2 also had circuitry built in to do the same. Testing so far indicates the charger is generic. No idea about the dock connector yet...

    Was the price $45 when you ordered? 1/4 the price of the entire watch currently!

    Damn! I'm pretty sure it was $30 when the link was first posted. I thought that was almost too steep. Shoulda bought one then... I carry mine with me so the kids won't lose it.

    Beware I'm pretty sure the dock for the gear 2 and gear 2 neo are different. I have both and I can't get them to interchange

    Now up to 49.99. Each dock is different because they have a NFC chip within them.

    No NFC in the watch!?!?!?! well, so much for mobile payments.

    I meant dimensionally different. My Neo cradle is too big for my Gear 2.

    This is where I got mine, much cheaper.

    When you buy it off ebay he then emails you which model of the two you need.

    It works perfectly and is Original Samsung.

    Hope this helps.

    The PayPal solution uses Bluetooth and not NFC. NFC is used at all of the Card terminals that accept EMV, Paypass, tap And pay processing.
    Without that, we will not be able to use our watches for payment at CVS the way we can use our smart phones today.

    Just sayin'. Mobile payments still possible. Not quite a "dead stop", but I agree, a step backwards.
