Being a firefighter/EMT in my spare time, I can really see some possibilities with this.  Quite often we have to work in the dark, and taking vitals requires a second hand.  I have a tritium watch so I can see it in the dark, but I bet you could easily program a watch face that is always on.  Has a large second hand, or even digital countdown timer.  Turn the face to select the standard times that we use as an EMT (15/30 seconds for vitals, 2 minutes for CPR), a LOUD tone that you can set to go off every 2 minutes (for CPR), etc.  Lots of possibilities!  If the face were like gorilla glass or something that would be perfect.

Are these running Tizen? How does that compare to Android Wear? I've been wanting to get a smart watch for a while and was thinking of getting the new Zenwatch since it's so cheap, but I hear Samsung watches have great battery. Has anyone used both platforms? I sometimes use my old Note 2 with an AOSP ROM, so I want to find something that works well with that and TouchWiz.

note 2 on aosp just makes me shutter lol... flash firekat on it and see what she can really do lol..n2 probably has my favorite s pen software use... click to toggle pen and eraser is the best feature they've abandoned imo I really wish I could port that back into n3 and n4...I have a gear s and couple gear 1...android wear is useless imo.... where tizen has been hands down the best stock experience I've ever used.... to the point I never even rooted my gear s or worried about it...I do a majority of my texting thru my gear s and rock it standalone alot of the time.... they're untouchable and for what little extra cost vs a wear watch they make them look like dumbwatches imo lmao

I agree that the Note line needs TouchWiz in order truly take advantage of the S-Pen, but my T-Mobile device was never updated past Jelly Bean. I actually didn't know about FireKat until last night, so I flashed it but the sound stopped working and it was too late to troubleshoot it, so I'll try again today after work. What's the cheapest Tizen watch? The Zenwatch is going for 130, but if the Gear S is that much better, I might just save up for that instead, I just wanted to find a cheap one to try it out pretty much, since I'm not 100% sold on smart watches yet.

In my opinion wear is pretty worthless and I know others may disagree if they only need it for notifications... But I do almost all my texting through my watch... I take a lot of my calls through my watch... By standalone means I have a sim card and it's my full phone lol...

I mean by tizen basically runs like Android with a different skin for all intents and purposes... you wouldn't really be able to tell the difference between the way they basically function but for app selection which is growing for tizen... But your a gear s is literally like an s3 in a watch band

They're amazing

How would you type out a text on a keyboard that's almost the size of your finger?  Well, for some of us.  LOL

Mega I'm just so tempted to add a gear s.  What you think.  I know you live yours.  Is there a v2 out or coming that I should wait on or no? And do I need to get the watch now and that band is an add on for later or is it the band and watch together that I should wait for
