    If so, I have a couple of questions.

    Does it work with the S Health App?

    Does it work as an device for Smart Lock?

    Do you pay a monthly fee if purchased on contract?

    Thank you.

    I have the Gear S with my Note 4 on Verizon.
    1) I do not use S Health much but I just checked; the info from the Gear S has been automatically transferring to the Note 4 as it did with my original Galaxy Gear and Note 3.
    2) Smart lock works perfectly.
    3) $7.91 is the monthly cost for my Gear S with Verizon ($5 +taxes and fees of course)

    Thank you so much for the info.

    I currently have the Gear Fit watch. I am eyeing the Gear S. Do you feel it is worth the money?

    It was worth the money for me. I was going to pay an ETF of $350 on one line and instead bought the Gear S for $399 and put it on that line.
    I like the large screen so that I can actually type in a response to a quick text and the fact that I can forget my phone and still get important messages or calls.
    Hmmm. I just asked myself the question; if it were stolen or lost would I go buy another for $400. My answer is that I would go buy another immediately. So I guess, yes is the short answer to your question

    Can you get texts that were sent to your phone on the Gear S if you don't have your phone with you? Or do you have to give people the phone number of the watch?

    I was meeting my sister in law at Target and didn't realize that I forgot my phone in the car. She texted my phone which forwarded it to my watch through Verizon. I reached into my pocket and realized that my phone was still in the car (well out of blutooth range). I even texted her back to tell her where I was. The text showed that it came from my phone number, not my watch number.

    Some things could be faster but, other than an occasional slight delay, the Gear S works very well with the Note 4. I haven't found anything doesn't work like you would expect it should.

    Thanks for the questions. I like my Gear S even more after thinking about it more thoroughly.

    Thank you, awesome.

    Hey, do you know if you can download Google Plus on the watch?

    Unfortunately it is Tizen and not android. I just checked, you can access Google + through Opera mini-browser.
