Controlling your music can be made easier with the use of third-party apps in the case of the Pebble and SW2 and sending text messages can be done in the form of pre-made "canned" messages directly from the watches themselves.
Sorry I do not have much info on the Omate or Gear, as I do not own those smartwatches myself (yet) .
I would recommend you Millennius smartq watch. its running on Android 4.4, has some great features and quite cheapest as well. only $99 AUD. You can even sending sms, accepting or rejecting call as well.
I currently have the mq588-L which is ok for calls an texts but find the volume too low..not updates or hacks.
