It is a beautiful watch. However it is running Tizen. If it was running Android Wear, then I would buy it.

You attempt at humor fell painfully flat, seeing as the Apple Watch is the best selling smart watch by a wide margin. Still, you're cute though XOXO

Shh, let him have his moment. He's still salty from getting screwed by Samsung with the Note C4.

Hey smartass, your troll buddy was hinting at the Note 7 and I replied back pointing out about the fact that iPhones were exploding well before the Note 7. I ll leave you two cuddle for now, ciao.

Calm down majerk. I find it funny that you are defending Samsung after they screwed you over.

Best selling doesn't make it the best smart watch.

According to them, it does make it the best, maybe McDonald's burgers are the best burgers for them because of their sales.

So on the flip side, Samsung phones being the best selling Android phones doesn't make them the best Android phones. That's just billions of dollars in marketing to the masses. You're making this too easy.

No, of course not. The fact that they're the best makes them the best.

46. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You're just proving my point.

Yeah you can mention Samsung if you like, you think I would defend them all the time like you defend Apple? LOL Not everyone is a company worshipper like you. You're making this too easy.

49. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Oh you're definitely a hypocrite now. You support you know who and he's definitely a company worshipper.

I support anyone when he is right, just like when I agree with you when you are right. Also, remember that you the one who is called hypocrite more than anyone else in this site.

Ok let's think about it; there are millions and millions more Samsung phones and Samsung phone owners than there are Apple iPhone owners. There are also wayyyyyy more different types of android phones that aren't Samsung phones BUT will work with the Gear watches. So given that there are SO FREAKING MANY more people that could buy a Gear watch than an Apple Watch YET THEY CHOOSE NOT TO, does indeed mean the Apple Watch is better. Because people ACTUALLY WANT THE APPLE WATCH. Unlike the Gear watches. And yes, I have both an Apple Watch (original version) and a Gear S2 AT&T 3G version, so I know both watches very well.

That may be true if you want to look at it subjectively, but that doesn't really change much about it being a really good smartwatch. I'm still getting the Gear S3 though.

Your attempt at humor was pointless, majerk.

You're attempt at insulting me is a bigger fail, I ve heard much better insults, you can do better buddy.

39. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Of course I can.

Exactly, there was no reason to put that on the list it has nothing to do with what happened with the note 7. Ir just shows even more how thus should be called iphonearena and how low class this site's writers can be.

You nailed it. I was about to participate with a no answer until I caught the bad intention. The reason I won't buy the new Gear is because I don't endorse Samsung's Tizen initiative.

No too few apps available, I have the gear fit 2 & do like it but no apps. I'm waiting for the nexus watch or moto 3rd gen small.
