The watch can sense your wrist motion, and screen will switch on when you raise and turn your wrist to your face. Screen is super nice. Built is plastic but don't feel cheap at all. You can change wall paper. There are different home screens that allow you to customize to show the time together wirh different information, such as next calendar activity (which I use), or pedometer data, or weather.... Etc.

S health doesn't work. But I used to use pebble, and can say gear fit is much better as it can show emotions, , or whatever they are called. I can still use the heartbeat sensor, pedometers, exercise measures, but data just can't be sync to phone without s health.

Since Samsung released the sdk, I am hopeful that the exercise data will be supported by 3rd party apps eventually.

Let me know if you have any question. Oh yeah, the control is smooth, and based on my experience, the battery should last around 4 days.

Great watch... Anyone wants my pebble?

Yes, except all the health functions. The other thing is though you need to install the latest gear fit manager with the gear fit being updated with the latest firmware. You can do that if you have another Samsung gs4 or 5.... If not, then go to your local electronic store to connect your gear fit too update firmware. Then disconnect it and leave.

I am still using both g2 and gear fit.
