The band on the S2 classic looks as if it can be easily changed unlike the regular S2 ,am I wrong?

Sent from my SM-N910T
That's what It seemed like to me as well man...the classic looks to sport a normal band where I'm not sure about the s2 width

...there may be a bunch that will come out who knows? The s1 only got 2 styles and a handful of colors that I know of

The s2 does allow all 22mm watch bands.  It's the s that doesn't.
Really?...maybe you've seen something different...only the classic does as far as I can tell and it def didn't look like a regular band size...would be a cool feature but yea the s1 only has the 2 band styles that I've seen

That's correct, it's only the S2 classic that has a replaceable band.  I thought they both would be the same case style, I guess not in the wisdom of Samsung.  *sigh*

So forgot to take my watch off after pt and got in the shower. Well it survived lol. . Need to look it up and see what it's resistance level is

No worries I figured the same thing until I saw it then looked around and couldn't find any info but for the classic...no one really brings it up...it seems so common sense to make that a feature only samsung could opt out man smh lol

  Well, considering official replacement bands for the S1 go for $35 a piece...  I wonder why they made it proprietary rather than have a standard watchband.  LOL

The s2 is ip68 which allows prolonged immersion under pressure.  That's technically waterProof.  The S is rated ip67 which is temporary immersion.  That's technically Water Resistant.

From TMobile.  I'm getting a refurb which you can only order online.  But it does save me $100 by doing that!  Only $5.32 per month for the watch added to my cell bill.

TMO does it a little different.  You basically pay the outright cost of the phone/device, and they break it up into 24 equal monthly payments interest free.  And with JUMP, if I want to upgrade to an S2 Classic, or an S3, or a different watch, I can trade in my current watch for full price.  Even if I only have it for 10 days.

Been perusing XDA's Gear X forums.  There are a lot of comments about easily broken charging cradle tabs.  Anyone here have that happen?
