    I have my Note5 paired with a Zenwatch 2 and it's been flawless. The only thing it lacks is the heart rate sensor.

    Would you recommend the zenwatch 2 now? Or would it be better to just wait for the zenwatch 3? I like the price point it offers, because I don't wanna drop 4-5 hundred dollars to see if I like having a smart watch lol

    Yeah definitely don't wanna shell out 4-500. Plus no heart rate sensor.. I use my Apple Watch when I workout and lift. So I need an android one to work the same. But I've heard the gear S2 doesn't do phone conversations

    Grab a Gear S2 off Swappa.com for less than $200. Or wait for the new version that's surely coming soon and grab the S2 for even less.

    If you're really on the fence about Android Wear, pick up a used Moto 360 for $100 or less.

    But can I make a phone call on the gear S2?? Like with my Apple Watch i can transfer the call to my watch. So if I'm busy with my hands I can use my phone as a Bluetooth speaker.

    Microsoft Band 2. The most accurate sensor device on the market.

    Depends if it will suit your needs. I wanted a smartwatch that is cheap, has Android Wear and a built in speaker. I tried Samsung watches before but I always leaned onto Android Wear due to app ecosystem and I hate using S Voice on a smartwatch.

    That's what I'm interested in, I guess a better question is, is the zenwatch 2 nearing the end of its lifespan? I don't have any idea the lifespan for wearables.

    Galaxy Gear S2. I'll be the first to admit Siri is clearly better than S-Voice, but other than that I find the S2 just as capable if not better at almost all other tasks as the Apple Watch. Oh did I mention that it looks like a real watch? 😉

    If you want all the connectivity that the Apple watch has I would say to go with the Gear S2 but if you want function and design I would say go with a Pebble Time Steel or Pebble Round

    LG Urbane. I like the look. Others disagree.

    I venture to say that I probably have the most uncommon wearables connected: Vector Watch Luna and Microsoft Band 2
