    Hi and welcome to WPCentral. Have you seen our sister site Connectedly? The members there are really familiar with smartwatches (and all sorts of connected gear/wearables). You might want to post your question here: Samsung Galaxy Gear - Connectedly Forum

    Hopefully, they will be able to help.

    No notifications will work but calls will work. So it'll basically be a bluetooth headset.

    You just have to get pass the initial setup screen.

    Do you have any idea how I would go about getting past the setup screen on the gear?

    Sorry for the late reply. Two options if the Gear runs android you can put a custom rom on it to remove the setup screen. The other option is just to use a compatible phone to get pass the screen.

    I got past the setup screen with a compatible Samsung phone. How do I connect it with my Windows 8s phone? Every time I try to pair it, it says the Samsung Galaxy Gear has to be reformat...and then I start from square 1.
