ED#186 : Experiencing The Samsung Gear S Smart Watch At The Samsung Gear S Spy Camp!

Recently, I was invited to the Samsung Gear S Spy Camp that was held in Port Dickson on the 18th of December, 2014. Since that would give me some real hands-on time with the Samsung Gear S smartwatch, I could not miss this opportunity. Check out what I experienced during the Samsung Gear S Spy Camp!

We're now headed to the Samsung Gear S spy camp!

Before going on a mission, espionage agents need to "gear up"!

Every secret agent received a Samsung Gear S smartwatch and a Samsung Gear Circle headset for the upcoming mission...

The first task was to locate the paired Samsung mobile phone...

Searching... Searching...

And it found the Samsung Galaxy Alpha it was paired with! Now off to start the mission!

Okay, we are not going to go through the mission because it was intensive and we didn't have time to take photos and post updates. But it was a well-designed mission that made use of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha smartphone, together with the Samsung Gear S smartwatch as well as the Samsung Gear Circle headset.

The tasks that we were given required the use of one of the three Samsung devices. Needless to say, it was a great way to experience and evaluate the features of those three devices.

After that, we retired for some R&R and more personal hands-on time with the three Samsung devices.

Pairing The Samsung Gear S With An Apple iPhone

W00T!!! I successfully paired the Samsung Gear S with my Apple iPhone 6 - which Samsung says is not possible.

You can check out how we did it in our article, How To Activate The Samsung Galaxy Gear S Smartwatch Without A Samsung Smartphone.

The downside though is the limited usability. So far I managed to make calls on the iPhone 6 through the Gear S, but it looks like SMS is out and so are the other Samsung-specific features.

After a night of trying to get the Samsung Gear S to do more with the Apple iPhone 6, I learned a lot more but the Gear S ran out of power due to an unforeseen issue.

More on that later but it has nothing to do with the way the Gear S is supposed to be used, but how it hooks up with the iPhone 6.

The Samsung Gear S charges pretty fast. A 20 minute charge got me from 20% to about 42%. Then the add on battery pack (which was empty but being recharged at the same time) trickle-charged it to 56% after that.
