Reject or accept incoming calls.
Quick reply for Texting
Full music and volume control
Heart rate monitor
Tracking of fitness basics like distance, average heart rate and calories used (this figure is calculated based on Age, Height &Weight.
Now, you definitely get a more robust record of tracking on a Samsung Phone. Namely the S Health account. Also impacts the option of installing additional apps but... as is features more than enough for me.
I'm using a Sony Xperia SP Android 4.3 Smartphone. I also own a 1st Gen Sony smart watch but prefer the display on the Samsung.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FormerPhoneAddict Incredible value; a life changer!
The Galaxy Gear Fit smart watch has truly changed the way that I use my device. Being able to see when I get calls (and choose to ignore them or send a pre-defined text), as well as see and read texts, emails, instant messages, and alerts from Social Media is wonderful! The quiet vibration alerts me to changes and allows me to decide what is important and what isn't. Need to respond? "View on Device" opens it on my phone, saving me time. As a result, I RARELY pull my phone out of my pocket now throughout the day - the battery life on my phone has DOUBLED and the watch itself gets 3-4 days on a single charge.
All of this on top of the ability to count steps (though it's quite generous on the counting, my reason for the 4 star feature rating), check my heart rate, control my music volume/skip tracks (my absolute favourite), have quick access to a timer/stopwatch, find my phone when it's in the couch or be alerted when I get to the car and I've left it on the table.. all in a sleek, streamlined unit with an IP67 water resistant rating - I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
To top it all off, the 3 year extended warranty option made me feel comfortable spending the money, AND I haven't even received any grief from the wife because, honestly, I don't spend my entire day staring at my phone anymore. Worth every penny!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JayBee Handy addition to my Samsung phone.
This was super easy to set up and I find it simple to use. Everything works well. I haven't worn a watch in a long time and I didn't realize how handy it can be. It's nice to not worry about missing calls or texts when my phone is stored out of reach.It would be nice to have some sort of audio alert but the little vibration gets my attention okay. I'm very happy with my purchase. Great price right now.
