I still use this watch to this day. The only thing I dislike is it runs on 3G. The plastic wrist band is also better if you happen to sweat a lot like I do, as opposed to leather bands on S2 or S3, which could get a bit crusty over time.

Tim Hadzisavas says:

hi I have a problem and hoping you can help me. Firstly I have my sim in my Samsung s4. The phone is connected via blue tooth. now my problem is that when my watch is out of range of my phone the connection drops off. I can understand why. When the watch is in range it reconnects. why doesn’t reconnect all the time. Sometimes I have to reconnect it manually 4 or 5 times a day. There are days when I have to reconnect it only twice a day. Why is it that it doesn’t reconnect all the time. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Question… if I buy this used do I still have to pay for it on a separate bill even if I Bluetooth it with my current phone?

Laggy Plays says:

Spencer says:

Screw the phone part of the watch. Camera + appstore + bluetooth = glory.

Fabian Gudiel says:

John Camp says:
