    Nice Navitimer. I love the Navitimer bracelet more than any other bracelet on the planet. Classy watch!

    I guess I will be the first still using my Gear 1 for almost 2 years. Worked great on my Note 2 and just as well on my Note 4. I have been a watch nut my whole life, but can't tell you how much I really enjoy my D ick Tracy gadget. Makes me smile every time I take a call with my watch!
    Edit.. You really can't print the short name for Richard without seeing **** in it's place?

    Thank you for all the responses. I am probably looking at either the Moto 360 at $180 or the Gear 2 Neo at $200. I will go check them out in person since I have not had any hands on time with any smart watch. I am also going to check out the Gear S. While it is more than what I am looking to spend it sounds like those that have it really like it. Might be worth it to take calls without having to have my phone on me. I probably will go tomorrow and check them all out at lunch.

    As I wrote before I wanted a Neo but ended up with the S only because of the deal I got and they were out of Neo everywhere. I always wore square watches before digital phones when I stopped wearing a watch except hrm ones. I'm not a big fan of AW because it's basically Google Now which I loathe on my phones and tablets. If/when they get away from tiles I'll look at them again.
    Good luck with your search and no matter which you choose of the 3 you listed it'll be a good choice.

    What more do you want your Fit to track? I use my Fit (as I wrote before I've got an S and a Fit) for making maps as well as tracking rides, hikes, heart rate, etc but I use it in conjunction with the s health app on the phone.

    I'd like things like route tracking and elevation tracking, but it's not a huge deal. I use mine in conjunction with s health too.

    Have the Asus watch. Like it a lot. Also use a Samsung Fit (not Android Wear) sometimes. Both work well and look good. People I meet bring them up and like them both.

    Samsung Gear S. Works great, battery life very good (2-3 days). As others have said, the apps are pretty limited for the watch. (clock faces and others). Does a great job working as a phone, checking emails, texts, tracking steps. Easy to set up and have had no issues. Good luck.

    I agree it'd be nice but it sounds like you already use the work around ,S Health. Look at it this way I suppose, if it had its own GPS chip for the ability to do that it'd be a battery hog to use. I'm thinking that's one reason they left it off. If I've got my phone with me I use its GPS instead of the one on the watch for that reason, battery savings. It truly would be awesome to have a watch the size of the Fit that'd stand on its own for the health stuff but still be able to do what it does when tethered to a phone. I'm not aware of any fitness bands that you can get a texting app for (Fit Messages, $1.99 on Play Store) for full fledged text ability as an example of why I prefer my Fit over them.

    I got many more comments and compliments on my Fit than I've gotten about my S. I'm thinking folks see my big arms and wrists and the S looks like a sports watch whereas the Fit looks small.

    I have an LG G watch. Got it last December for $69 on Groupon. At that price, I consider it a pretty great watch. I've actually had quite a few people ask me how I liked my Apple watch, lol. Battery life isn't great (1.5 days usually) but since I charge it every night, that's not an issue. I like that it uses Android Wear and even though it doesn't run flawlessly (not sure if that's a software or watch issue), it works the way I want it to 99% of the time.

    I was thinking about switching from note 4 to back to iPhone, and getting an apple watch. That think looks so cool and classy. Talk me out of it? What's the best and classy?

    Here's what I did with my smartwatch on my Note4 today.
    I took both my Fit and S on a kayaking trip. Fit was connected to the phone, S remotely connected for phone calls as well as other stuff.
    On the Fit I set up a Cycling session to trigger the GPS on the phone to sync my location to the watch and s health app. I went kayaking and when done opened s health to get the measurements, map of route, etc. I did 2 sessions because I wanted to make notes on the maps later for points of interest (fishing spots) along the creek


    On part of the return trip I did the same but on the S with its standalone GPS.

    Here's what it looked like on the S itself

    Both are good watches. I have the Gear 2 Neo, works great with the note 4. Check Amazon out they did have the gear 2 neo for less than $199 not sure what the price was for the other one.

    Completely awesome experiment
    That whole thing started months ago when I started kayaking ponds and doing depth readings for fishing by mapping the pond first, doing an exercise session, screen shot it, use the s pen to screenies and jot depths on the shot. The s pen works just fine through my Joto phone dry bag/case, the only caveat being not drop the s pen lol. When paddling I'd drop it in the bag and after taking a reading open the bag, pull out pen, close bag, do my thing. This was my first attempt.

    Nice! What would be cool is if your depth finder had a way to sync with the Note 4 via Bluetooth, NFC, or ad hoc WiFi so that you can annotate the finder data map and GPS points in real-time like you are with the S Pen.

    I was using a rope with a knot every foot method.
    On another note, I was inside a building with a dead zone earlier today, phone couldn't use data network, no Wi-Fi available so busy for grins I checked my watch and fired up a data connection on it. Low and behold, Opera Mini on a Gear S and checking Facebook just for grins. It was weak and slow but my phone even connect to anything.
    Another "man that's cool moment" as the only device, including others on every network, in the building with a data connection was a watch lol.
