I have the Neo for about a week and so far it's pretty good. This is my first Samsung gear watch and it's a little disappointing to see that Samsung hasn't come very far in their 2nd iteration. I had an Amazon gift card to pay for it but I wouldn't buy it for $199. My biggest issue has been the annoyance of having to push the button to see the time. I am spoiled by my Pebble which has an always on display and twice the battery life. Overall I think the Pebble is a better implementation of a smart connected watch.
You don't have to push the button to see the time, you can go to settings, display, wake up gesture and set it up to on, and your watch will turn on every time you move your arm closest to your face or towards you.

I had that feature turned on for a few days and it bugged me because it would light up the display at times when I wasn't wanting to see it. Many times during normal movement it interprets the wrist motion as wanting to see the watch when that is not the case. It really went nuts when I was playing golf! Not a great implementation.
