Agree. The biggest benefits of the Gear S models which I have both is the fact you can use a Bluetooth headphones with it, it has S-Health, S-Voice is betetr on the gear S' because the database for S-Voice is on the watch itself and it doesn't have to wait for the server to give you answers like Siri and its so much faster on the watch vs the phone. Then you have UV, 3G, GPS and more vs other options which dont and it still manages to be small. The only con I have found with both models is battery-life. The 3G versions have terrible battery-life vs the WiFi only options. I think the answer would be is even though the watches have batteries, the glass itself should be a clear solar panel (and yes those do exist), so the device can be charged by artificial and natural lighting. I got me an the wife one for XMAS and we both love them. The rotating bezel was a good idea. But touch the screen is just a bad habit that phones have given us. I'm trying to do less touching and more rotating.

That's how feel about my gear s. I love that I can leave my phone at home, and still have phone, email, text, full Web browser (opera mini), CNN, and news briefing, as well as a full qwerty keyboard.
