On the 18th of December 2014, Samsung held their Samsung Gear S Spy Camp. This promotion was designed as a vehicle to show off their new Samsung Gear S smartwatch among other new releases to media in a hands-on environment.

The attendees were given a 'mission' designed to utilize Samsung's Galaxy Alpha smartphone, the Gear S smartwatch and the Gear Circle headset in unison - this was alongside product training and other hands-on experiences with all of Samsung's new devices.

Held in Lexis, Port Dickson, this 'camp' was designed as an alternative type of product training, seeing all involved be brandished as 'spies' - receiving their own personal Gear S and other devices. We've also seen a report that one Techarp writer was able to pair an Apple iPhone 6 to the Gear S device, something that Samsung has claimed is impossible.

Said to be quickly charging, through testing the Gear S charged from 20% to 42% in a short five minute window connected to a standard USB wall-charger.

There's a few small and interesting points noted thanks to this hands-on experience. If Samsung says their Gear S won't work with iPhone's but it does, what else can we discover?
