ooooh. can't afford it
You can get the Gear S2 Classic for £239 if you prefer using the same code.
Brill been after this for a while
Birthday tomorrow...hmmmm.....
5ish months til the S3 in all likelihood
I got a gear s2 classic to replace my LG Urbane recently and Tizen OS is on a par with apple watch OS in terms of being reliable and easy to use - Both are better than Android Wear IMO - I am using it connected to a Samsung phone so the two devices being Samsung may help but it never disconnects or misses notifications
However in terms of this being a good deal I did only pay £209 for my S2 classic direct from Samsung as they were doing a 30% all S2 watches offer a few weeks ago. It's a good watch and at this price is a deal but it has been cheaper is I guess what I'm trying to say...
I wish the classic was chunkier. They look quite delicate to me?!
Had the Classic since launch great, 4 day battery life, perfect for basic notifications and health monitor, but beyond that typical Samsung, software updates gone, crap apps.

Would go Android but battery life is pants, so I guess maybe the Samsung is the best balance.
Is it true you can't even set calendar reminders or location events with these? or initialise a WhatsApp message with a voice command?
They definitely look nice, bit small though, definitely more geared as a unisex watch compared to a lot of others which are made only for manly wrists.
I thought the Classic could take a sim card? No?
*No. There is/will be 3G versions which are eSIM enabled (non-physical SIM)

I have a pebble steel and still find it hard to come up with a reason to upgrade other than it looks nice?

I fancy getting smartwatch for myself, after being very impressed with the wife's basic Pebble that she got at christmas. I've done quite a bit of research and had narrowed it down to probably the Sony Smartwatch 3 or the LG Urbane, but was interested to read that you have just replaced your LG Urbane for an Gear S2. What was wrong with the LG Urbane ?
Did you know that this will work on iOS if you have an ibone. App is coming soon, BUT if you moogle 'gear s2' you should find the unreleased app and what to do
Sorry that should be g

Indeed, I have one and there is no way on earth it would last 4 days...........unless of course you don't actually wear it!
Wearing and using sparingly (I literally just use it as a watch - I like different faces) at most it lasts 1.5 days, and that's stretching it.
I suppose if everything that makes it a smartwatch was turned off, it may well be possible.

I've had one since launch, it can stretch to 4, honestly depends how much you use it, it'll happily be on standby for longer than that.
I use mine for managing notifications, health tracking, the little calendar on it is amazing (even though you look like a tool checking your diary from your watch), playing games (great if you forget your phone going the toilet.) Have the shortcut button set to the calculator and can even control my phones camera from it. I do most of this stuff daily and it lasts 3 days. Can't wait until they sort out samsung pay so I can start looking like a right weirdo by paying for stuff with it!

I got the s2 Classic, so also plenty of straps to choose from.

safe to say i'd recommend it ^^
What the hell kind of games do you play on a watch????

I actually bought the LG to replace a Sony SW3 as I wanted something that looked a bit more "grown up" I loved the SW3 and actually preferred it to the LG in the end. I had a problem with the LG that may have been bad luck or may be a problem with the hardware, I used to get constant disconnects between phone and watch, I narrowed it down to when it changed between Bluetooth and WIFI connection but am not 100% sure on this, it was sent back to LG and they allegedly replaced the motherboard but the same issues continued.

I may have been comparing it unfavourably to my Apple Watch as that never loses connection unless you take the watch out without your phone or vice versa, and I am having similarly no problems with the gear s2 - The SW3 did disconnect occasionally but It was nowhere near as temperamental as the LG urbane. Hope this helps in some way!
Under 200 for her the classic with a quick Google search and 174 for the above.

Those versions come from HK and China which means that you wont get UK Samsung warranty plus a long wait for it to get to the UK.
UK seller with warranty laptops direct for one I think

​You cannot initiate whatsapp on any smart watch stock. on samsung there is an app that allows this i paid and tried but found it flaky.

For me these watches are limited extensions not replacements for your phone.

​Yes and easy, brightness on 6, about 50% notitifications on and all stock.
The old Samsung got me 5 days.
oh auto HR on moderate too

​Classic looks smarter like a watch and less bulky aside from that the same

​i find the bezel annoying and rarely use it.
The watch coupled with Samsung SHEALTH app is great lots of auto info (heart, steps) then manual (sleep, food, stress, weight, bp, etc..)

Great watch, had one since launch but did have trouble with strap and Samsung service is very very very shoddy! Amazing watch though, had sw3 previously and although more apps quality on gear is much higher

Cheers, that's useful (I think). I've read so many articles and reviews online, but many contradict each other so it's difficult to know who to believe. You obviously have hands on experience with a few watches - if you didn't have any of them right now, but was told to go out and buy just one, which would you buy ? (apart from Apple, as I'm android)

I would buy this Samsung Gear s2 if cost isn't an issue and you have a Samsung phone (I've not used it with other android phones but have read it works best with Samsung), I would buy the SW3 for value for money and the fact it''s a really good watch if you don't mind the way it looks (the standalone GPS is not reliable though in my experience) and sadly I couldn't recommend the LG Urbane - it looks nice but I had too many issues with it and the experience was more frustrating than anything else, but as I said initially I *may* have had a faulty unit.
I owned a pebble for ages, got a gear and went back to the pebble. Gear trys to do too many things and it makes the OS a mess. Pebble keeps it simple and because everything is tactile buttons its easier and quicker to work. Third of the price too.
