LOL!!

This made me laugh so hard! Thank you for cheering me up.

Also I have one gripe, I'm a flashoholic for phone roms. I have a Note 2. I find it very annoying that I have to wipe the Neo everytime I connect it to the phone with a new rom. Why can't it just keep the data on it? Messages etc not a problem, but sleep data, pedometer data and even clock and wallpaper all have to reset too.

I totaly agree for sleep mode and turning off the display.
And we need ALARM witch is stand alone in the watch it self. I mean it's a smart watch and no alarm... WTF

Why do you need alarm???
You have to set alarm in your phone, gear 2 will indicate for you.
BTW I have a fav. free watch app, you can set alarm in this app on your gear 2.
This free watch app is LED Alarm, you can download it from your Samsung Apps...

He just wants an alarm on the watch, independent of the phone

I solved this issue by turning off gesture wakeup.

2: Indoor workouts
How do they not have the ability to track indoor workouts such as spinning or general fitness? I was hoping by getting the Neo that devs could write their own fitness apps that fix Samsung's issues. Turns out Samsung isn't opening the SDK to developers for this! My solution has been to only track heart rate using the running app, but my calories don't get tracked.

3: Took it out for a 20 mile bike ride, the screen would constantly show me going 89mi/h... I mean I might have been going 19mph but 89?!? It wasn't just once, it was the entire time. The summary page showed accurate results but not live...

Number two remains, BY FAR, my biggest gripe.

I agree, that is pretty unfortunate.
