    hello all,

    So this is a specific requirement, and let me explain the requirement; i need an android smartwatch that can connect to the internet,complete with a browser, completely independently of my phone while likely being out of range of the phone's Bluetooth and, potentially, any wifi networks. It also CANNOT have a camera of any kind.

    Sound like a wierd and oddly specific requirement? The rational is this; i work as an extra. Very often, your phone is locked away by the production team from the start of the day to wrap time (and that's typcially a 12+ hour day) this is to prevent people leaking on set pictures,mbut it does mean you're uncontactable for the whole day. Typically, agencies will send emails asking simple 'are you available for this run of days on this project' questions that require hitbutton yes or no responses, and are typically time sentivive. Dont respond quickly,mthe job'll be gone in a few hours. So i need a smart watch that I can safely say 'this does not have a camera' with, but which will allow me internet access (even if it is fiddly to use, i'll manage) when i'm away from my phone and wifi networks.

    I Could spend up to about £350, does anyone know of a reliable Smartwatch that meets these needs edit: is a samsung gear S a suitable pick?
