Default Vzw g2 and Sony smart watch2

I just picked one up today at best buy today to scratch the itch that I've had for a while now. Idk if many like the idea but I'll give my initial impressions.

First off pro and con
* the band it comes with. Reason being is the one I got(which surprised me since I thought it would come with the rubber one) is metal and no one could get the links out. I am the definition of a skinny person. I had to buy the tool which arrives tomorrow.

Pros
* I like the screen size and being touch. (I was debating between the pebble also) looks good enough to satisfy.

* the notifications work better than I thought. The vibration when you get a text fb or any sort of notification is nice since I rarely feel it in my pocket.

*can control the play music app through the watch so I don't have to mess with the phone wile driving

Con's
* Facebook extension if you just choose the ppl you want it to show up doesn't seam to stay logged in.

*still skeptical since I was on the fence about getting one. Maybe a few days with it I'll start to enjoy it.

If you have questions I'll try to answer them for you

So this is a smart watch that works with other phones not just Sony. Was just gonna start researching this. Love the galaxy gear but didn't want the note 3. So I got G2. Are there other manufacturers doing this.

The galaxy gear works with other phone's if you root it, but the phone has to running 4.3+

Really. Didn't know it was possible yet. Kinda gave up once I decided I didn't want note 3. Gonna look into it. Thanks. Is there a forum here for it.

Ehhhh I think it's more of a vanilla feel, meaning obviously no TouchWiz stuff. I'm trying to find direct xda links, but here you go for now...

Edit - Sorry for not posting the original story links. I've had a long day, I'm tired, and I posted the first ones I could find lol.

Yes this one work with all androids. I like the fact that I don't have to go to my pocket to check to see about a message. I don't always feel it when it vibrates since I don't like the sound. Its really easy to see it sun light just not in the dark with out turning on the back light

Letting y'all know I'll be returning the smart watch just the few days I've had it the watches battery got better but my phones battery dropped from 5 hours of screen on to 1-1/12 hrs. I'm not around a charger that often. I can't have it die on me that quick. I loved it just thought it would help battery life since I wouldn't be turning the screen on that often
