    I have contacted Samsung and got a reply as expected
    Asked them what the difference was between the two product numbers.

    Samsung stated
    it depends if you buy the bluetooth or 4G version, The 4G version is not officially released in the netherlands
    For the rest they should work the same.

    So then I mentioned that I would buy the bluetooth version and that it would be great if I could run Dutch apps.

    They then mentioned:
    we can't guarantee this compatibility because they can't test it because Samsung Holland only has hardware designed for Holland

    Yes, they are not going to encourage out of region purchases.
    Don't forget that Samsung introduced Region locking to stop grey imports.

    This will not apply to a BT Gear, but may prevent network access if you decided to purchase a 4G Gear.

    Yes. The difference is about 45 euro.
    Small price to pay for a Gear that will definitely work and for which you will have warranty backup.

    No warranty on a USA imported Gear.

    Hi Guys,

    Just got the watch.
    It works perfectly.
    Because you install the gear app on your phone you can access all the local apps and also the language is automatically set to Dutch.

    So I am happy
