Re: Samsung Galaxy Gear S vs Apple iWatch.
Unfortunately, the Gear S, which can act as a standalone watch/phone once you pair it with your main smartphone, only works on most Samsung phones, the same way the Apple Watch will with only Apple phones.

Here are examples one of the many customized watch faces. As you can see, the apps can easily be chosen without a "digital crown" or knob; no need to turn anything to pinch and zoom; navigation has been superb. It is far from perfect though. If Apple gets rid of the digital crown and lower the price of their watch, I may heavily consider switching platform, and buy it. The interchangeable straps and software seem awesome.
