    One of the finest gadgets!! Before I write anything about this amazing watch, I advise you to just ignore the critics review(cnet, pcmag etc etc) for this watch. I didn’t understand why they were so negative about this.I believe watches are traditionally known to do perfectly what they are supposed to do. Considering the fact that it is just a watch, there is no point putting too many features and making the watch too complex to use. In this criteria this watch fits very well.Here is what I feel about this watch:1) Design & Look and Feel: The watch design and look and feel is too good and I felt really nice when I wore it. If you watch savvy and have been wearing tissot, citizen sports watches, your experience is going to be same.2) Watch Size: Good for people with reasonably thick wrist. Skinny folks with thin wrist may not find it suitable and probably same goes for very thick wrist.3) Features: This watch does well what it claims to do. I am not kind of person to expect the watch to do crazy things. It has different clock types so you have choice to have a virtual watch every day in a week. However I prefer to use the default one because I like having the temperature. Besides this I loved the email & message alerts right on my wrist. I have a website for which I have placed some alerts for downtime & fraud detection, payment etc. This helps me a lot especially when my phone is far from me.Lot of people criticized this watch for not having SNS integration. This is common sense that all such SNS apps are not owned by Samsung and Samsung can’t influence(read force) them to release a galaxy gear version immediately. Based on the sales, user response, such apps will also come soon. I am anyway not kind of person who would hook up to facebook, twitter to follow updates. I usually see FB 1 or 2 times a week so I don’t consider this is as a problem.Other features like pedometer, svoice, voice memo, media controller are also there which you can use if you are familiar with them. I used pedometer & media controller and it seems pretty good.Also Find my mobile is a good feature if you forget your watch/phone somewhere(ofcourse within the bluetooth range), you will be able to find the it with the other device. Although find my mobile feature allows you to track your phone from samsung account also.Calling From watch is also a unique feature and it is very useful if you are driving. It may be embarrassing or might look show off/stupid if you use it in public especially because the call comes on watch speaker phone. There is a phone book and dialer too, which you can use for making calls.4) Camera: Camera was a surprise in this watch and probably the very reason the watch price is bit higher compared to Sony Smart watch 2. Although I don’t really use it very often but sometimes it does help you take a quick snap of shop address, bar codes, road signs etc. If you have a small kid, you may capture many memorable photos. The quality was good enough in day light and was a bit shabby in low light situation. I didn’t use the video recording but may be I can find some use of it later.5) Battery life: This was again criticized a lot. It can run only for one day with a charge. Critics didn’t mention that this watch charge very rapidly(usually within 45 to 60 min it gets a full charge). I agree that traditionally watches are no supposed to be like this but the fact is that this is not a traditional watch. Considering the features it gives, it is perfectly fine to put it for charge right next to your phone(which you anyway do daily). Whats the problem here? May be Gear 2 will come with a better battery backup but definitely this is not a huge disadvantage here.6) WaterProof: Yes this watch is not water proof. Since the time I started wearing watches, I never had a situation when I needed to immerse my watch in water(especially 1 meter below) and very rarely I was out in rain wearing a watch. This is surely not for use while swimming but so does Sony smart watch 2(even though it is water proof but they say to avoid use in swimming).It can survive few drops and splashes of water but it is better to avoid it.7) Bluetooth Range: Critics have given a disadvantage that if the device is too much away from phone, it gets disconnected and they say that it becomes useless junk! How it becomes useless? It still shows you time, can take pictures, ring the alarm and other features except only for the device sync up related features like mail, calendar & messaging. Well, same goes if your smart phone is out of network or wifi range. Like your phone, it also reconnects and sync up as soon as it comes in connectivity range.Disadvantages: Yes there are problem here too if you really find to find them.I can say the high price and that it currently works only with Note 3 and 2014 version of tablet. Price is higher probably because of camera. However…
