    Has anyone else noticed a problem with S Voice on the GG? Even the simplest voice commands are replied with a garbled/distorted "I didn't catch that" response from the GG. I am running the latest 4.3 Android on the Note 2 and latest firmware on the GG?

    Yes exact same problem here on Note 2. Pretty sure it has to do with a glitchy android 4.3 update for the note 2 to give it gear support. I called samsung and they had no clue. Its still too new. A couple more updates and im sure it will work itself out. My wife has a s3 and went to 4.3. Now her camera flash flashes instead of the led on notifications. This is the worst rollout ive seen yet. Hope they have a fix soon.

    Good to know .... I've tried several fixes (loaded/unloaded various apps thinking that was the cause)

    I am having the exact same problem with my GG/N2. Short of every GG from Rogers being defective I too think it is an update issue.

    If it's a phone update that means it has to work it's way through your carrier, as well. Probably a smart decision not to wait around, especially since there's a good change there will either be a Gear price drop, the Gear 2 will be released, or both by the time your phone is ready for it.

    I am soooo glad I found this thread. It's the only thread on google I have found, nobody else has posted anything else anywhere. I thought I had a faulty galaxy gear, did not want to return it haaha. Galaxy gear is awesome, I know I'm missing 1/2 its capabilities with this stupid s voice gargly voice issue.
    Note 2 users have any other issues?
    I find that my music controller only controls the volume and nothing else.

    I hope this s voice thing is resolved sooner or unless someone else has found a mod to fix it.

    I would love to get google now working on it too! That would be awesome.

    yeah it should. But I think the problem is the note 2 and galaxy gear firmware not working good with each other. I could be wrong.

    The Samsung app store just released an update to "Gear Manager" in an attempt to fix the problem .... it's a bit better - but it still doesn't work

    I am with Verizon, and I just got the update for Note 2, my GG is doing the same thing. So I don't believe this is just an issue with Rogers.

    I have experienced the same behaviour. I picked up a Gear a week ago and paired it with my Note 2 and S Voice sounds like it's transmitting from another planet.

    There are two posts in this thread I'm curious about. The first suggests that uninstalling and then reinstalling the Gear will make S Voice work. What are the exact steps you took to make that happen? I've tried a few times and nothing seems to change.

    The other post suggests that the user didn't need to do those steps because the update made the Gear work. What update specifically is being referred to?

    Cheers!

    What update are you referring to specifically? What version of the firmware did you end up with on the Gear?

    Thanks!

    I've seen this update for the S3, it is a known issue. If you haven't fixed it yet, simply go into settings, accessibility. You will see this feature there (turned off) Turn it on. Reset the phone. Go back in and turn it back off. Reset the phone. and viola, it should stop now.

    linkkoriri, I'd love to know what feature in Accessibility settings you're referring to. I've got an S3 and S-voice on my Gear sounds like garbage, often tells me I'm not connected when I am connected and has great trouble understanding anything I say to it. I've just assumed Samsung just makes a really bad voice recognition feature.
