    Ok, I very recently got rid of my iPhone 6 Plus, and purchased a Note Edge and Gear S on AT&T. Extremely happy with both devices, this isn't my first time with an Android phone.

    I thought there was away to keep your Note unlocked as long as it was paired with Bluetooth to the Gear. I feel like I was able to do this with another android phone I had in the last year or so.

    Any help would be great. I hope I'm not just imagining this feature. Thanks.

    I had this feature with my Moto 360 which came with the Motorola or Android Wear OS. ]When I got my Gear S, it did not have that feature so, I purchased a program or it might have been free called Delayed Lock. I set it up so, whenever my Gear S is in range, it will leave the phone unlocked. Then when the Gear S is used remotely or turned off, the phone would go into the screen.

    If you go to the Gear app on your phone and then go to settings, there is a Remote Lock feature that you can enable. I think I explored that but either it did not work consistently or did not provide the security level that I wanted and that is why I went with Delayed Lock.

    There is a switch in the settings of the Gear Manager that allows the functionality you are looking for.

    I don't have the ability to take a screen shot right now, but it's in the settings. Remember, you turn the feature on and off from within Gear Manager.

    Awesome! Thanks for the help. I thought I had already looked in the Gear app, but I obviously over looked it.

    Thanks again for the help.
