A smartwatch with some useful features

The original Gear watches were completely redundant and basically toys for people who love gadgets. I found it absurd that the Gear watch saved people from the trouble of having to take their phone out of their pocket in order to read a text message (and honestly anyone interested in the Gear watch is probably someone who had and continued to have their phone glued to their hand anyway) I guess this is why they were a bit of a flop considering many people love cellphones because they free people from the burden of wearing a watch.

The Fit features seem like they'd actually be useful to someone, although that depends upon whether or not the phone must be wirelessly tethers to the watch when it is used. I couldn't imagine jogging with an...

Well, since it pairs with the phone I doubt you can use it with out the actual phone. Luckily, the S5 is waterproof and shock proof, so at least it helps a little bit in case you can't leave it behind.
