    He or she has been around here longer than you and I combined so let's give him or her some credit. The watch will work exactly as asked.

    Thanks for all the replies. My phone is currently a Note 8, but I upgrade at least every other year.

    Then the watch will work as described; it will connect over Bluetooth BLE and other devices like your car and speakers will connect over regular Bluetooth. No need to disconnect the phone & watch when getting in your vehicle, etc. They run on different Bluetooth protocols.

    You are welcome. If you do buy one come back and let us know what you think. Maybe post some watch face screenshots in that thread. We could use a spark in our smart watch threads.

    I also have a Note 8 along with an S3 Frontier and it hands over call and media to both vehicles almost immediately. I still receive notifications and alerts on the watch which seems redundant.

    Sweet. This is exactly what I wanted confirmation on! Thanks!

    Now, the decision is whether to grab the S3 Frontier, which I love the look of, or wait for the S4.... hmmm....
