    This is a really pretty watch. I had so much trouble getting it from T-Mobile, Amazon sent me the wrong watch, but Best Buy did it right! I am still getting to know the watch but I can't wait to find out all the fabulous stuff it will do for me

    The batter life is not great. It always disconnects from the phone's bluetooth. I wish it did a better job of recording workout info. It only records half of the workout. Great Stylish still a good buy.

    I've had many smart watches to date & this is by far one of the best ones . . aside from functionality, the most important thing to me is battery life and this one can go 2-3 days when fully charged. As far as elegance, I still like my Apple Watch 3 but this one seems much more durable and fully water-proof. If you're going with this watch, go with the 42 mm ones since it has a much better battery life and even if you don't need the LTE, you should still choose it since it's faster and has double the RAM (1.5GB). Overall this is a bulky watch so if you have an iPhone, then go with Apple Watch, if you want a purely activity watch, go with Fitbit Versa or Garmin Vivoactive 3 (they're both great watches) but if you want a durable everyday smart watch, then go with this and you won't have to worry about dang or drops.

    The watch looks beautiful and has some cool features. However, the shortcomings of the Samsung health and the battery outways it all. Cant wear it to collect sleep data because I have to charge it. Cant leave it on heart monitor all day and use as phone much because it loses charge. If you liked your Fitbit and counted on it then this watch will bring about much frustration! I may need to return it and I am super sad about it. Samsung needs to get there act together and start competing better with the IPhone.....I cannot go to the darkside!

    Ordered new, came as open-boxed item. Box wasn't sealed and the charging wire was crammed in the box. No damage or scratches noted. The watch states unlocked but would not connect to my provider. my provider stated it can not be connected. Other than that the watch works and looks Great, I need the LTE to work. I Returned watch.

    I'm in love with the Galaxy watch. I bought the Galaxy Watch 42mm Bluetooth + LTE about 2 weeks ago and it replaced my Samsung Gear S2 watch. What an upgrade! The Galaxy watch is so much better. The improvements they've made since the S2 makes the Galaxy watch a must have for any Samsung phone or Android user. The first thing I like about the Galaxy watch over the S2 is the improvement to the the watch band. The S2 had this slide clasp thing that attached the band to the watch and it was horrible! The band would randomly fall off. The new Galaxy watch has a standard roll pin design, but with a quick release, which makes changing the bands a breeze, and they don't fall off! The battery life is really good too. I've been getting about 2 days on a single charge, and that's with very heavy usage. My S2 watch didn't even last a day. So great improvement on the battery life. The user interface tizen is pretty good and simple to navigate. I'd like to see Android Wear running on it, but with the new One UI update for the Galaxy watch it makes the experience even better. It shows Samsung is listening to their users and that they are going forward with their "one UI" platform across all their devices. One of the best things about the Samsung Galaxy Watch is the crazy amount of watch faces you can get in the Galaxy app store. There are so many different watch faces that you can find the look and feel you want for any occasion, outfit, or mood. I'm a "Samsung fanboy" so I own the Samsung Note 9 phone, Galaxy watch, and Galaxy buds. The thing I love the most is how seemless they all work and communicate with each other. If I'm in a hurry, rush out the door without my phone, it's nice that don't miss a call, or text. With the LTE feature I don't miss an important call or text. Speaking of texting, that's the only small complaint I've about the Galaxy watch, texting on the watch can be a little tedious, and challenging at times. But it does have the speech to text feature which works pretty well for the most part. I wish it had Google assistant instead of bixby but bixby is slowly getting better, but I think it still needs a lot of work. Calls on the Galaxy watch are surprisingly very good. The speaker is plenty loud enough to hear in an out door environment and the microphone seem to work well too as the people I've talked to had no problems understanding and hearing me. One of the biggest features I like about the watch is water lock mode or the water Eject option. If you wash your hands, go swimming, or take a shower with your watch on and water gets inside the speaker port and sounds muffled, you use the water Eject option and it plays a series of tones, beeps, and other sounds to vibrate the water out. It actually works very very well! An awesome feature! The Galaxy watch comes with 2 size bands, small and a large. For me the small fits the best. It's comfortable and easy to put on and take off. Their are some really good 3rd party watch bands too if you want a different look other than the stock ones. But I think the stock ones are very well made and comfortable. The watch itself is sturdy and seems to take a beating pretty good. I work in a rough environment and I bump my watch all the time on steel and so far it's not even scratched. Compared to my old S2, the Galaxy watch doesn't seem to scratch as easy as the S2 did. The rotating bezel is what makes the Galaxy watch the most amazing and easiest smart watch to navigate. Samsung took an existing part of a watch and gave it a smart and very useful function. Using the rotating bezal to navigate through menus, scroll through texts, ect just feels natural, and the way a smart watch should function. The Samsung Galaxy Watch also has a very good fitness/health tracker. I really didn't think it would be a feature I'd ever use or enjoy but I've to say I like seeing how many steps I've taken and try to out do my step count the next day. I'm averaging about 18,000 steps a day. I also enjoy that if I've been sitting watching TV too long it will alert me and remind me that I've been "too lazy for too long". It reminds me to get up, stretch, and move around which has helped my joints in my legs not be so stiff. Another nice feature is the sleep tracking. It keeps track of how much sleep you've gotten each night. It even knows when your in a deep (rem) sleep by checking your heart rate or something like that. I don't know how it all works, which is the beauty. You don't have to know, it just does it! So if you're looking for a smart watch loaded with useful features, the Samsung Galaxy watch is a must. If I had to pick my number 1 favorite thing about owning the Galaxy watch, it's that I don't have to pull my phone out of my pocket at work to read, or reply to a text message. The Samsung Galaxy Watch is a stunning looking, work horse, loaded with helpful and useful features. It's a great addition to add to your Samsung eco system. I'm enjoying this watch and if I lost it today I'd have to run out and buy another one the same day. I don't think I could live without my Samsung Galaxy Watch. To put it simple, it's become an important part of me. It's like I was born with it in my wrist and it looks amazing too!
