I am looking at getting a gear 2 or gear fit. If I root/install a custom rom, any ideas if it will still be able to sync with my phone?

I was under the impression that it will be nearly impossible to root the Verizon S5?

Can never be unlocked without a leak from Samsung. Root is possible just hasn't been done or confirmed yet.
