  1. I still want one, but need to know if it can be made to be compatible with my new Galaxy S6 smartphone. Also, I have heard that the newest model will allow the wearer to speak into the watch to not only receive calls, but also to answer calls and speak to the caller, just using their watch. Is it out yet? I hope you can answer my 2 questions here.

  2. Review is excellent as always. Androidwear does not work consistently on any watch and is simply not worth the investment now. $450 for a smartwatch is ridiculous. The software acts as though it is worth $.02.

  3. Shouldn't the tagline be "putting the WATCH back in smartwatch?", more apt based on wht they are going for (looks like, and priced like a real watch)

  4. I have an iPhone 6 and have just bought this watch. Set up was good. The face keeps reverting to the same one rather than to the faces I prefer-is this normal? Can you advise how to set so it stays on a face I prefer. Thank you.
