    I am about to order the watch, but have a few questions I am hoping to get answered.

    1. I hear ordering through best buy is the fastest way to get one. Does this have to be done in the store??? When I check online, bestbuy basically does not let me do anything/cannot order...

    2. Can the watch receive and send text message without the phone around you?

    3. Can the watch gps work if the phone is not around you or is dead?

    4. Can the watch receive and send email without the phone around you?

    5. Can the watch make and receive phone calls without the phone around you?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure about 1, but I can answer 2-5.

    2) iMessage works if the watch has wifi.
    3) The watch series 2 has its own on board gps independent of the iphone.
    4) Your watch can receive and send email using wifi.
    5) your watch can make and receive phone calls without your phone if you have wifi calling enabled
