    This watch is awesome. Battery life is great and all the features it offers make it a great choice. Love the fact that I dont need to look at my phone for everything now.

    This smart watch integrated perfectly with our Android S8+ and the interface is really intuitive. The biggest issue with this and all smart watches is the horrific battery life. Charging another device daily really is a chore and the biggest flaw.

    I've had this watch for a few weeks and I love it so far! It's durable which helps during work and the battery life is also great, about a day on normal settings. Would definitely recommend!

    I've used an apple watch (my wife has one) and I upgraded to this from the Fitbit versa. This has a battery life that is well more than double the apple watch but not quite as good as the Fitbit. I would estimate with heavy use the battery life is about 40 hour.

    Love this watch! Takes a little time to get used to all of the features, though having fun as I'm learning! Only thing I'd improve is the battery life.

    I like this watch. It does not have a speaker...I don't care because I'm not into having other people hear my conversations or music Battery life is ok I charge it every 1.5 days.... It could let you view more things on the watch instead it sends you to the phone...but it's not a huge deal It's small enough for little wrist that don't like the big smart watches The could have used more of the watch face it has a pretty thick black edge that does nothing but it's a nice watch for the price.

    The Galaxy Watch Active is great! Long battery life, easy and friendly interface. It does run on Tizen so there are less apps supported than Android but if you're looking a great fitness tracker, heart monitor, sleep monitor and stress monitor this is the watch for you.

    This works well with my Samsung S10 as my Fitbit was not compatible. I love the options and downloads but using them cuts my battery life way down. I could charge this every night. I like the features not the battery life.

    I am a recent convert from fitbit. I enjoy this watch, I like the notifications, different watch faces, choices on recording workouts. My only complaint is the minimal battery life. I have to charge it every day to two days.

    This is the best overall Smartwatch available! I have tried every Smartwatch brand, besides Apple, and the Galaxy Active is by far the best overall; functionality and cost combination. It has all the features a Smartwatch should have, good battery, all the tracking on a really nice companion app (3rd party apps available as well) and everything works great! Highly recommend buying this watch!

    I really like the watch it fits nicely and it's not bulky like other watches. The battery life is pretty good I usually get about 2 days out of it with constant use. The fitness tracking is pretty spot on as well. All in all a very good product.

    This is my first Samsung product since the Galaxy S2 a and I'm shocked at how great this smartwatch is. I thought Android Wear was the holy Grail of connectivity, but Samsung has it beat by a long run besides the fact that Android Wear has more watch apps. The battery life is great period! Throw on a black watch face, turn down the brightness to Max low and the battery shines for 3 days with moderate use. Bixby is crap as usual, but gets the job done for talk to text. Samsung pay is great. It takes a minute to get used to though since you have to press the back button, hold it, and then type a password to activate it. The watch is small, but that's what I actually like about it. It's very compact and Petit. I have massive footballer hands so if I can type and mouse around on it anyone can This is a great watch that's honestly better than the fitbit when you compare the together.

    Replaced a Fitbit Charge 2 that failed with this after researching and found I did not want another Fitbit. This is a much more flexible and powerful device and only needs a good wristband which I purchased online for under $12.00. Battery life is reasonable but not as good as the Fitbit. That is really driven by how you setup the apps that you enable.
