    I keep missing these email messages, and can only see them when I turn the phone back on. I want to read and reply to them on my Gear when my phone is turned off. Thanks!

    Gear S right now is just a DUMB watch, not smart watch. It can't go retrieve emails by itself. Everything is dependent on your phone to retrieve it and relay to the watch. If you turn off the host phone, all you can do is make phone calls and receive SMS via Gear's phone number. Only a few apps work (like weather).

    A dumb watch? Ha...

    Like my text thread, leave my phone on to get emails?

    Correct. The watch can't do most things without the phone on.

    That's the whole point. It's not supposed to be a phone. I don't know any watches that do all that. They are still quite a new technology tho.

    Hmm, but it is not that hard to leave the phone on. I think that's great, considering what technology allows.
