    I am looking at the pebble steel or the Samsung gear 2

    Does anyone have any experience using either of them and how do they work? I have the note 4.

    I have the original Gear and the Note 4. I absolutely love it, the notifications are outstanding it makes the battery last as I don't bring out the phone that much.

    Is there a reason I should spend double the money for gear 2 over the original one

    I have the original Pebble. It works great with the Note 4. The Pebble gets 5-7 days of battery life. I like being able to see texts as well as send quick replies.

    Look elsewhere. Have u consdered the 360. I have had both the pebble and gear 2. Hands down the Moto 360 is a better experience. It rocks. Works great with the note.

    How's the battery life on the 360? I'm getting about 2 days on a charge on my Gear 1.

    +1. On the Original Gear as well and its perfect for multiple notifications. Touch the phone 1/3 the time which is helpful with a large volume of work email...

    How does the Galaxy S compare to the 360? I am also debating on watches.

    I have both and they are great watches must say the S is in a class by itself. The 360 is android wear looks great and is great for notifications and does that well but the S has all the bells and whistles. Which ever one you decide you will be happy. If any one is interested i am selling my moto 360 and gear 2 both are in great shape pm me.

    Right now I'm deciding between the pebble steel and moto 360. Ruled out the Samsung gear 2 because it requires you to use stock messenger and stock email for it to work. I use k-9 for email and hoverchat for texting. Trying to find out if the moto has same requirement.

    Can you share your findings if any one of those works with non stock email and text apps? Interested as well, thx!

    My original Gear allows me to see email from different email clients and I also get alerts from Hangouts and see the message as well. What I can't do is send texts via voice through Hangouts I have to use the text message app on the watch.

    Can you use any text app on your phone? I'm ok with using the stock messaging on the watch, I just want to use hoverchat and k-9 on my phone and still get messages sent to the watch and reply thru the watch.

    I have the Gear S. You CAN NOT reply text and email messages on the watch, you can only read and dismiss them, but the stock apps you can. A way around it for the time being is on Opera Mini, the web browser. So once you get a quick notification via a beep or vibration, you can then web browse, and reply there.

    Yes you can on the phone. I used the Google Messenger app that I side loaded on the phone. I don't use the Samsung email app I use Bluemail and the email notifications show up on the original Gear running Tizen. Flesky messenger on the watch allows you to use a keyboard on the watch itself to send sms messages that go through your sms client.

    Well that puts the gear 2 back in the table. I thought you had to use the stock email and text messaging on the phone to. I'm ok with stock on the watch only. Thanks

    I was looking at the Samsung s, but if there is no reply in that, not interested.

    If you are willing to buy used, you can get a gear 2 in very good condition for $130 from amazon.

    The gear 2 feels much better on the hand. Substantially lighter and wraps around your wrist better since it doesn't have the camera in the strap. You also get ip67 vs ip55,which is a big difference imo. And hrm and ir.

    My original gear works great with this phone. Just make sure you do the tizen update and it does everything the gear 2 does for a fraction of the price.

    Personally I am trying to decide between the 360 and the ZenWatch. Only reason I dont want a gear is its limited to Samsung devices. If I ever change to a different phone I dont want to have to buy a new watch too. Cant seem to find enough info between those two watches though to make my mind up lol.

    Depends on the deal, the gear 2 neo was $57 refurbished earlier today when you buy 2. If you needed the camera the gear 2 was $83.
