This is in my opinion the best smart watch out right now. I actually find that unfortunate in many ways, as I am left wanting more. When I go looking for a replacement though, I am reminded time and time again there isn't yet a better smart watch out. If I can have a moment of your time, please allow me to state my case. I'm just going to start with the pros and cons to get those out of the way.
Ownership: 10 Months
Experience with watches: All my life
Pros (Attempted to sort-of sort in order of most important to least important)
*Speakerphone (I initially thought this was worthless, see the section below to see why my mind has been changed)
*Reminds you when you left your cell phone behind
*Does not require another device added to your cell phone plan
*Very durable (read my claims below, I explain why I think this in great detail)
*Good vibration power.. it's a bit gentle but I've never missed a notification and it's powerful enough to wake me up.
*Security feature to force a lock code when the phone is too far from your watch (this uses NFC so the distance is quite short)
*Good battery life
*One of the most affordable smart watches available (not counting the no brand chinese knockoffs that aren't in the same league)
*Appealing looks, not bulky at all
*Fitness features built in
*IR Blaster (allows you to do things like use an app as a universal remote)
*Great built-in apps cover basically everything I wanted out of the box
Cons (Also attempted to sort-of sort in order of most important to least important)
*Having this watch paired blocks the use of google's voice recognition in favor of samsung's not nearly as good s-voice (see workaround below)
*First watch I've ever put on that wasn't big enough for my wrist (it's really too tight, but I just wear it too tight)
*Not androidwear, therefore the apps are lacking
*Short phone compatibility list
*Overall a cheap watch (I'm not sure this is actually a con, I love the price point, I just wish there were a higher classed version I could get that had the things I want)
*Really wish there were a way to disable the touchscreen for use in water (this is really knit-picking, but hey, I want to be thorough!)
Google Now Voice Recognition Workaround
By default, when this watch is paired (and no other bluetooth headset is paired), your phone thinks it's getting its audio input from the watch, effectively muting you when you try to talk to it. To resolve this, you can disable using the bluetooth headset for audio input by going to your settings > System > Language and input > Speech > Voice Input > [tap the gear next to Enhanced Google Services] > [disable the last option, "Bluetooth headset - Records audio through bluetooth headset if available]. This will allow the phone to use the phone's microphone instead. Just keep in mind, it will continue to use the phone's microphone even if you are using an actual bluetooth headset.
What is everyone doing to these watches?
OK, so I read through the reviews and saw all of the horror stories about people breaking these watches. Allow me to say right now that I do NOT treat my watch in any sort of special way. I never have, I have worn a watch since I was very young and I have in quick order destroyed many watches. I know how they break, and I know what I do to my watches... so I would say I know a thing or two when it comes to the average longevity of the average watch. The person who had pits on their charging contacts, that had to have been exposed to a corrosive chemical or environment (I'm going to assume the ocean). The ocean is hell on all watches, so don't be surprised when nature does what it does. My contacts are in perfect order after 10 months and I get my watch wet daily.
Breaking at the hinges
The reason people are breaking these watches at the hinges is because they are getting the watch caught on something and it's forcefully ripping the watch off. When this happens, the watch is a band around your wrist with no breaking point, so the force will always find the path of least resistance. Just the other night at the grocery store I got my very own Neo stuck on a wire rack at a grocery store and this exact same thing happened to me. In my case, it just so happen that the wire bar holding the band bent instead of the watch casing breaking, so I consider myself lucky. Had it broken the watch, I wouldn't have been mad at all. It was totally my fault, and there is no possible outcome other than something breaking when that scenario happens... even if the watch stayed in tact, the only other option would be for it to literally rip my hand off.
A word about the longevity of this watch versus "typical watches"
As I said, I don't treat my watches with any sort of special treatment at all. I make exactly 0 efforts to keep them out of harms way. The way I've always thought of my watch is that I expect it to endure the rigors I put it through, and if it doesn't, it wasn't the watch for me. I have had this watch now for 10 months and it functions perfectly fine with no corrosion on the terminals, no depreciation of quality anywhere that I can see. The only thing I can see is that the clasp has worn a lot of its silver color off exposing a brass colored metal underneath. This is also my fault because I allow it to rub on my desk all day as I work. I'm totally cool with it though, because as I said earlier I have never made an adjustment to the way I live my life for a watch - the watch must simply endure what I put it through and I'm happy. Through the years, I have been disappointed in many watches because they have been unable to live up to this standard. I actually wont even buy a watch for under $100, because I know it will not survive what I have for it. The most common ways watches end up breaking is the wristband, the watch itself just stop working, the charging mechanism for solar or kinetic charging watches, and gasket failure. I can say with 100% certainty, this watch performs roughly as well (if not just slightly less durable) as a typical $100 watch would when it comes to longevity.
A note on daily use
Every day, I take my watch off of its charging cradle, I put it right on my wrist, and I begin my day as if that didn't happen. I take showers with my watch, I work out with it, I walk in the rain with it, if I were to decide to go swimming, my watch comes with me. When I go to bed at night, I place it back on the charge along with my other personal electronics and go to sleep. Again, I make no effort to treat my watches special in any way. This watch has performed admirably. As a matter of fact, this watch has performed at almost exactly the same level I would expect a non-smart $129 watch to perform which is in my opinion mind blowing.
Speakerphone on a watch, why it's awesome
I really thought speakerphone on my watch was going to be really dumb, but let me tell you Samsung NAILED it with this watch. The speakerphone is so good, I often don't even bother digging my phone out of my pocket to answer a call. This is especially true when driving. It's plenty loud, the other person can hear me just fine, and it just works beautifully. I did not expect this to work at all on a smart watch, my mind is blown yet again. It's very convenient to have a method of hands free communication when you least expect to need it... without having to fool with a car's crappy speakerphone or a bluetooth headset. Speaking of car speakerphone, to give a rough comparison, the speakerphone on this watch is better than literally any bluetooth speakerphone system I've used in any car to date. Oh, and did I mention you can choose to route your calls to a bluetooth headset on the handset right from the watch? This is a feature that I didn't think would be all that useful before I got the watch, but now I'm realizing it's a must-have feature and one of the reasons I just can't find a replacement for this smartwatch yet.
Why is this the "best smart watch available right now"?
This watch has some must-have features for me and this keeps me from being able to find a viable alternative. #1 is definitely speakerphone. It's just that good, I can't imagine a watch without it. To my surprise, there aren't many other smart watches with speakerphone out right now. Second is the IR blaster. I really get good use out of the IR blaster, and would hate to give it up. Not to mention, it has a very good built-in app for a universal remote so you don't have to worry about third party apps that are never as good as built-in ones. Now, although it can be found in other watches, the fact that this watch is waterproof also makes it more difficult to replace. Granted other smart watches that are waterproof is becoming more commonplace these days, some otherwise nice options I couldn't possibly get because they lack this.
Hope someone found my review helpful, I definitely was surprised myself upon realizing I can't replace this smart watch yet... I'm hoping to soon, the Huawei smart watch is looking like a possibility if they do enable the speakerphone on it as rumored, but I don't want to buy on a rumor. I'd still be losing the IR blaster, but I guess I'll have to make -some- sort of sacrifice.
So my wife got me a Moto 360 smart watch for Valentines day. I really like it and it looks great, but I am drawn back to my Neo. If I had to choose between the two, I would at this point pick the Neo - but the verdict is still out. I'm still hoping I can get the 360 to work better for me by using apps etc.
The reasons here are pretty simple:
*No reminder of a phone left behind
*No auto-lock feature on phone or watch when out of range
*Not as good of battery life as the Neo
Honestly, if those things could be corrected.... even if only the middle two, I'd gladly drop my Neo like a bad habit. As it stands though, the Neo is still a very strong contender. I am now torn between the two watches, I love them both for totally different reasons. The edge the Moto 360 has on the Neo is the style, it's more comfortable, and google now on my wrist. I guess it's a little cool that I have all of the glorious watch faces and apps that come with android wear - but honestly that's not even a big enough deal to me for me to give it favor.
For me personally, a smart watch is all about being able to manage my phone and notifications without taking my phone out. It's also about being able to answer a quick call without taking my phone out - something the Moto 360 can't do at all. If my hands are full or I can't get to my phone, I want to do phone functions. That's really what a smart watch is to me in a nutshell. If I could get to my phone readily, I would have no need for a smart watch because everything a watch does, a phone does better. Fortunately for the smart watch industry though, there are frequent times that I cannot access my phone directly so a smart watch is essential to me.
I haven't seen any reviews mention that the vibrate function on wearables like this one would be a big help for the hearing impaired, but IMO it is, so I thought it was worth mentioning in the review heading. My situation is that I work in my studio with hearing protection and with several machines going. I've often missed calls because I didn't notice my phone vibrate in my pocket or see the screen light up nearby. Because of the protective earphones I wear, I can't use a BT earpiece. I searched long and hard for a solution to this problem and I think I've finally found it with this watch. That said, the vibrate has a "mild" and "hard" setting and both feel about the same anemic rate to me. It seems somewhat weaker than my phone's vibration. I'm disappointed because I was counting on that feature and was hoping it would be stronger than it is. With its mild vibration and lighting up right there on my wrist, it's just barely enough to get my attention while working with vibrating machines in my hands.
I guess the fitness features are just a curious novelty for me. Sadly, the pedometer is WAY off and useless because it showed I somehow managed to take about 100 steps while sitting on the couch! That's the one thing I do wish worked. Not sure how accurate the heart rate monitor is yet. The sleep monitor actually measures the percentage of time that you're laying still after you turn it on, rather than any fancy wave rates and such. Simple, yet somewhat indicative of how well you slept, I suppose. I like that when you set the sleep monitor, it shuts down the display light up and sound features - except alarms of course.
I like using Samsung's SVoice feature, which works well on this watch to help me handle many tasks hands-free, like quickly sending a text message or making a phone call. It allows me to skip going through several screen changes. I LOVE being able to walk around the house and use my watch as a speaker phone totally hands-free! The reception, volume and clarity from the caller's side has been great, so the mic apparently works well. The volume output control is annoying because it reverts back to a default [medium] #4 setting when it's idle for a while. That setting makes hearing calls in a busy room a little hard. But when you're on a call you can boost the volume to the max #6 to hear much better. I've always used Samsung phones and set a combo of vibrate and sound for notices. But this watch is limited to do either or, not both! Boo Samsung! Poor form! It's likely a battery saving thing, but I'd rather sacrifice slightly more frequent charging, myself.
Here's a list of pros and cons:
Nice convenient calling features right there on your wrist
bright display, clear and easy to see
SVoice feature useful for hands free functions
good for monitoring phone calls and messages - esp for hearing impaired or use in noisy places
several pre-loaded watch face choices, fonts, sizes, ability to select and move your favorite features around on the various screens
lots of apps are out there for Samsung phones and smartwatches [less are available for "off-brand" ones]
Samsung's Gear interface for the health features of the watch is kinda nice
CONS - which is why I rated it 4 out of 5 stars
it auto-switches to lower default volume setting
too mild vibration
can't set both vibrate and sound - it's either or
very poor pedometer
By the way nobody solicited my review - it's all my own free thoughts here and I bought the smartwatch myself!
Recently discovered the "Watcher" app as my watch face. It combines your calendar and local weather with the analog face.
