Do you think Fleksy is better than Minuum? I'd like to see that one on the watch...

That's subjective lol, I prefer Fleksy as I can see the whole keyboard like my smartphone meaning I know where every key is located

Honestly, THIS is what I need on my Neo. All the other stuff is great, but a simple keyboard to quickly send off replies that cannot be spoken into the watch due to circumstances or obscurity making them unlikely to be presets, would take this watch to another level for me.

As stated already, Fleksy should be out for Gear 2 soon. Here is a quick mention by them: http://feedback.fleksy.com/knowledge...sung-galaxy-ge

You might as well take it back then. Not only do you need a keyboard but you'll need an app installed on the watch that will accept input and send the message somehow. The Tablet Talk app enabled texting from the original Galaxy Gear, but you had to be rooted just to side-load it onto the watch. Gear 2 doesn't have a root solution yet, and even if it did I doubt Tablet Talk is compatible with Tizen.

I suggest returning your Gear 2 and use that money to buy a better phone, since obviously texting from your current phone isn't good enough.

Default It will be nice when it comes

Of course it would be awesome to have a keyboard for discreet messages on your watch. However, it's not a deal breaker for me. Still a great piece of tech and the possibilities will only increase. Stay tuned.
