Samsung Gear S arrives at various carriers on November 7. I love Samsung. Samsung is a friend of mine. I love the Tizen OS. It works great with my Android smartphone. I love the Gear 2 Neo. It has a microphone and speaker, and, in the car, I can take and reject calls with my voice. If I need privacy, I just touch an icon on the phone app on the watch, and the call switches to my bluetooth headset. Why, then, would Samsung add the functionality of a SIM card and telephone number to an outstanding device without putting in a speaker? The big color screen is beautiful. Tizen has every notification app you might want, plus others. When you don't want to carry a smartphone around, the phone capability is nice. But, no speaker? The mind boggles.
