    Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts if someone switched from the Verizon gear S2 3g to the urbane 2. Obviously $500 is a lot to make the change and was wondering if it.was worth it. Thanks!

    Given all the troubles ppl have with Verizon (see http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...allenging.html), it is definitely not worth it. Get an AT&T version instead. Your Gear S2 actually has CDMA radio that works well with Verizon. Urbane2 doesn't, only LTE, and it prove to be problematic to even get properly activated because no other Verizon phone devices lacks CDMA radio.

    Thanks for the feedback foxbat. If I get the att version does this mean I lose the ability to be connected to my phone when not by it?

    You can still connect to your phone through cell data as long as you have an active SIM in both. Doesn't matter which provider(s) you use.

    You won't be able to use the NumberSync feature if you're not an AT&T customer, but not a big deal in my opinion.

    Actually there is a way to sync your VZW smartphone number with an ATT watch urbane 2nd edition.

    Thanks for the replys everyone. Having a another phone plan doesn't really excite me.

    Question....does anyone have the Verizon version and like it? And also, back to the original question. It is worth the switch from the gear s2 3g in your opinion.

    IMO, Original Gear S > Gear S2. As for Urbane LTE vs Gear S/S2, I sold my Gear S and very happy with my Urbane LTE since Nov 2015.

    I bought my wife the S2 3g (non vzw) and I have the LG urbane. I don't think it's a huge difference in terms of functionality. I definitely do not think the VZW version is worth $499 so for that price I do not think it's a worthy upgrade to the S2 3g.

    I love my 2nd edition because of how it looks. It functions well enough for me but I'm really looking for a true stand alone music streaming app. The S2 3g already has that.

    Battery wise, my 2nd edition beats my wife's S2 3g but both watches can easily go through a normal day without charging.

    Thanks for the help everyone. I think I'm just going to stick with my gear s2. It works fine. Just liked the look of the urbane better. Doesn't sound like it's worth the $500. I will just hope the gear s3 has a different look. What I am really looking for:

    1. A bigger screen
    2. More color choices
    3. Messages+ support
    4. Easy ability to transfer podcasts to listen while working out
    5. Better GPS capability
    6. Google voice (I know this will never happen)
    7. The thing I want the most is more gear support for apps. We'll see how this goes.
    8. Better UI. It is pretty plain.

    Maybe the urbane 3 (?) will be worth the upgrade.....
