    Anyone heard or read anything about a web browser being available for the Gear S? How about downloading apps from the "Play Store" like Pandora?

    If I'm not able to stream Pandora from the watch, this could be a deal breaker for me! But why wouldn't you be able to since it has 3G?

    Thoughts?

    According to the spec sheet from my local AT&T store, it says no web browsing.

    Thank you Sam! This should assure the use of bluetooth Pandora!! Also, they say "for sale later this month". I wonder why this is such a secret.

    You welcome. Even though web browsing may be capable with Opera, I suspect it would drain the battery faster, so minimal or light use is fine. I don't think the back of the device is removable for a replaceable battery. Either way though, it is nice to have a web browsing option.

    Yes, it's nice to have the option. Say you run out quick and leave your phone behind. Maybe you want to search a quick price or phone number of a store...then you have an option. To me this seals the deal, as long as I like the look on my wrist.
