    I had the first generation Galaxy Gear watch. I loved it but but the battery life sucked. I especially like having custom watch faces, with t pics of airplanes or motorcycles... Want a new smart watch but can't decide on which one. If you get one let me know how you like it.

    So my previous order activity over the past 3 months has not gone to plan .... we know that the Mavic pre ordering went to plan not and now it's looking like my Samsung pre order is going nowhere as well :(

    The s3 looks nice but it's a little bigger than I like, and costly being so new. I think the s2 is perfect for me.

    I've got a gear s2 last week and I like it a lot. I get about 2 days out of the battery but I don't really use it for a whole lot I just like checking my calls/texts/notifications, give quick responses, look at emails. I love that I can feel every call and text. Sometimes I would miss calls, just didn't feel the vibration in my pocket, but that doesn't happen any more. Also been a little more conscious of my walking, etc, which is good I guess.

    Sucks that they're not shipping yet...Good luck.
