I wasn't planning on buying anything and I guess I technically didn't. My wife needed a new cell phone so we went off to Verizon. Lucky me they had a freebie offer if you bought an S7 or S7 Edge and traded in your old phone. There was a choice of a free 8" tablet, no thanks, a free speaker, no thanks, or a free Gear 2 smartwatch....say what! Bingo!

Well I had to take them up on that offer. Just getting to learn my way around this one. I'll update this thread later once I've run it through it's paces. One thing I like is that it has it's own number and if you use call forwarding on your cell phone your calls will still come to the watch even if they are separated. Now that is something the MOTO 360 did not do.

Anyway....stay tuned. More to come.

I've had a chance to wear this for a few days now. I like it a lot. It has it's own phone number and can send and receive calls. I can forward my cellphone directly to it so I don't even need my phone with me to receive all my calls. Currently the MOTO and Android Wear still has the best watchfaces. This has dozens of choices so it is not terrible. Several of the watch face apps do not work with Gear 2 at this time. It takes some time to learn how to navigate through all the screens and you can load it up with apps so it can be anything from a wrist flashlight to a stopwatch, timer and much, much more. The notifications are nice, but also annoying at times. You can turn them on and off easily enough. I would say this is a good replacement for my MOTO 360 that died. I have a new Ticwatch coming from Kickstarter. Goggle is behind that model and I'm excited to see what it will be able to do. I'll post an update at some point. Also, feel free to ask any questions. I own a Pebble, the MOTO, and few no-name brand smartwatches and this Gear 2, so I have some experience with the smartwatch. Just no Apple....I'm and Android guy.
