5 out of 5 eggs Great watch, good price 05/03/2014

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 Neo Smartwatch (Charcoal Black)

Pros:

-Quite a bit a functionality; the notifications in the manager allow for additional apps to notify you. Gmail, twitter, ect can let you know of events.
-Nice management app; make sure you get it from the Samsung App store! The one on Google play does nothing!
-Lightweight, looks great
-No one really notices I am wearing it unless I mentioned it. I thought this was a big plus- I didn't want a watch that was so noticeable (and geeky)
-Samsung app store did have additional apps (including a calculator- oh yeah, bringing back the 80's!)
-no camera (yeah, that's a plus)
-Battery life is 3 or so days

Cons:

Obviously, it earned 5 stars in my book, but there is some room for improvement
-The icons for apps could be much better- the default ones are black and white
-I wish it had apps for google calendar, but the Samsung calendar works fine
-After I get a notification of email, I can read it on the screen, but I still haven't figured out how to easily write back on the watch. As far as I know, it does not have a pop-up keyboard. So you have to go to your device to write back.

Other Thoughts:

I think more will come from this watch. It seems apparent that it has a far greater potential.
I was skeptic of wearables, but it's actually really nice. Everyone notices if someone pulls out a phone during a meeting, but no one notices a glance at a watch.
The watch is so lightweight that I forget I am wearing it. For me, I didn't compromise what I wanted in a traditional watch to get the Neo. Overall, I am pleasantly surprised.
I connected this to my Note 2 without any issues (after I got the right app from the Samsung store). You can only attach it to one device at a time.
