Default [Q] Galaxy Gear 2 with Note 2 (Stock) users?

I was initially turned off of the Galaxy Gear 2 by the price, but I understand that there are some refurbs avaiable for $99, so I was wondering if anyone in the Note 2 forum on the stock rom has an opinion on it. I really only want to use it for email notification and as a controller of my Google Play music library.

I really figured that I was going to wait on Motorola's upcoming watch, but for $99 ...

Any difference in pre-tizen and post-tizen?

Thanks for your time.

I really like mine, but I don't think it will work with a stock Note 2 ROM, although you may be able to get notifications of you tweak it

You're probably mixed up with the 1st gen or the neo.

Default My mistake...

Yes, you are quite right. I did mistake a Gen 1 for for a Gen 2.

The refurbs are available at the Best Buy website.

Sorry for the error.

You can get the Gear 2 Neo new for $150 from AT&T (even if you are not on AT&T).
See my post in the Gear 2 form general thread if interested...

I just ordered a refurb Gear 1 from SlickDeals last week. It's out for delivery today so I can't give my opinion just yet. However based on what I read the only real difference is the heart rate monitor on the Gear 2. (Well as long as you upgrade to Tizen)...I think I will upgrade the Gear 1 to Tizen since I really don't need a 1 inch screen for viewing full blown Android apps! LOL I can barely see the screen on my Note 2 HAHAHA!!!
