Hi can you give a little more info on this product? Can you answer phone calls and speak through the phone? I know it doesn't have lte but through a speaker via Bluetooth is what I am asking. Also how accurate is the gps when you use it and what is the battery life like afterwards? Typical battery life? Thank you.

No speaker on the gear sport.

Yes you can take calls on the watch. Audio would be via BT earbuds. The built-in GPS is as accurate as any other device. Battery life for me has been in the 2-3 day range before needing charged. That is with alot of apps running constantly. Hope this helps. It definitely is a big step up from the Moto 360 sport - even though it uses Tizen and not Android Wear. The screen is brighter, clearer, and faster in my use.

Just to be sure, you will be able to make and receive calls with it as long as the phone is near? And it will be through Bluetooth?...and Does that mean there will not need to be some sort of service plan costs with a provider? Sorry...Never had one.

I use a Galaxy S8+ on Verizon network. Yes, it connects via bluetooth and all calls, texts, notifications, etc, are routed through it. So yes, your phone must be within range. How far you can wander away will depend on your particular phone and obstructions. It does have stand alone GPS. No need for a separate service plan as it is dependent on your cellular phone signal. It works very well using NFC Samsung Pay. Most places accept Samsung/Android Pay. Just place the watch near the terminal and boom - paid for - no hassles, no need to carry credit cards for majority of shopping. I got mine on pre-order at $300. So $249 is an absolute steal in my opinion. After using it for several weeks, I would buy again without hesitation. It's that impressive.

Does this have the ability to track sleep?

A friend of mine has the Apple watch and it does this and I would like something similar. I know there are apps out there where you can tell it that you are going to sleep, etc but i want this to be automatic. if it has the ability to track sleep is it automatic like the apple watch?

Yes it does. Most of the Samsung wearables track sleep with the S Health app. I have a gear fit 2 and the S3 frontier. Tempted to get the Sport so I can swim with it. Especially at this price.

Does anyone know if this tracks your resting heart rate?
Also, does it auto track any walks and/or runs (w/o having to init it)?
