    Great watch with a few hiccups

    I bought this bc my GS3 Frontier is too big & heavy on my wrist, so I gave it to my husband. The 42mm size is a huge improvement. I love the rose gold! My only issue is I wish the stock watchfaces had more customization options for each face. It's necessary to download an external app to fully customize & these apps all have some issues. For example, the best app I have found so far is Watchmaker & the background image resolution leaves a lot to be desired! The steps, heartrate & other data don't always sync with these apps in a timely fashion, also. I've tried other apps but there is always some problem with it. Other than that it's a great watch! I love it & my husband loves his Frontier.

    I previously had the Gear Fit 2 and it was ok but gave it to my son-in-law. So I purchased this one mainly because it has a microphone. Yes I can take calls without picking up my phone. I also can quickly see who is calling and reply to text messages and email. There are so many apps that can be added and I have just started exploring. This watch was a lot heavier than the Gear Fit 2 and I hesitated when taking it out of the box. But after wearing it a couple of days I don't even feel it. The band fits great and I have a really small wrist. I also wear it all night to monitor my sleep.

    When trying to get a smart watch I wanted to make sure I didnt get anything that was too bulky for my small wrists but still looked like a normal watch. I also wanted something that would track my exercise habits and be able to display the seconds because I am in the medical field and rely on the seconds to do all my measurements. I didnt very much care for the Fitbit because it didnt look like a normal watch and was very obvious it's a fitness watch. I love that I can download apps and new watch faces onto the galaxy watch and change out the wristband for any kind of material or color I want. It's a perfect companion for any non Apple phone in my opinion. It performs all of the functions I want in a smart and then some.

    My Samsung- Galaxy watch. Comfortable, convenient, never leave home without it. Whether at home, gym or at the River I use it always. Water resistant (water lock) mode helps me keep it damage free!

    Wife's Watch

    Wife wanted a watch that would count her steps. Wanted to give her more that would work with her Samsung Note 8. Took her shopping to try it on. Though a bit large, she liked it. Happy it was on sale and bough it for her right then. She loves making the watch faces match her clothes and uses the Health tools. She intends to use Samsung Pay with it. Too bad it doesn't have the MST like my Gear S3. She envies my capability to pay at swipe only terminals. Sad Samsung didn't keep the MST technology in the newer watches. Happy she likes her watch so much.

    Overall nice watch. All the features you could want on a small scale. Excellent phone features. Amazing how well you can hear and be heard even at a distance. You can keep both hands on the wheel if you are going to be on the phone when driving. The negative points are I don't see how the battery could possibly last for 6 days. I don't use it more than normal and minimal calls. I usually make it between 20 to 24 hours before recharging. Also trying to connect with Bixby vocally is more hit than miss. My phone on my waist usually answers first no matter how I change the settings. If anyone has any suggestions on improving this I would love to hear them. Also you can't use Google Assistant with it. Overall though if Bixby Voice improves I would give it 5 stars.

    My wife’s old Galaxy was the series before this one, although it was the smallest size, it always seems bulky on her wrist. The new Galaxy Watch is lighter, the battery lasts longer and it looks my stylish and not so masculine. She loves the stainless steel design and the leather ban, makes it look classy

    I am only few weeks into trying out this watch. I was not a watch wearer befroe now but with my new job was looking for a way to get my updates withpout looking to my phone all the time. That being said it is doing most of what I expected but does not always seem to connect to the wifi connections that are supposed to mirror off my phone settings so that if my phone is not close it can still get updates. Sometimes I feel this is alsop a reason for the battery life to go lower while trying to search for Wifi or trying to reconnect with Bluetooth. I really wish I would have waited for the cellular version of this to be released so that phone would not be needed and could be left behind sometimes., Overall I think that I like the watch and will continue to use and hopefully learn to make it more usefull in my daily activities.

    I upgraded from a Gear S3 watch that I loved but the battery was slowly dying and it did not hold a charge all day anymore. I am very pleased with the battery life of the Galaxy watch. I can get 2 days on one charge and even new the S3 did not have that. This new Galaxy watch is much like the previous iterations. A bit thicker but still the wonderfully easy to use and understand rotating bezel. Samsung makes the smart watch easy to use and I find it fun to change up my watch face and add apps that are helpful. All in all, unless Samsung really screws up, I think they have one of the best watches around.

    I originally bought the gear s3 frontier and wasn't very impressed. The 42mm is definitely more manageable over the 46mm. After wearing for nearly 36 hours straight the battery life is at 60% so a little close to 3 days would probably be a reasonable expectation on battery life. Plenty of features and the watch faces are customizable to display what you want to see readily. Overall I'm very happy with this watch.

    I sat fully submerged in a Jacuzzi hot tub for over an hour and forgot I was wearing my watch. It did not have any effect on it. I am the opposite of graceful and because of that I smack this thing against various surface on a daily basis....not a scratch on it. This thing could potentially survive being dropped into a volcano. 5 stars and would buy again ..... But I won't need to because this thing will probably never stop working.

    I love my galaxy watch! It fits perfectly on my wrist, i dont have the biggest wrists and i have no issues with it. It syncs well with my samsung galaxy phone, i did have some issues at first as it would connect and disconnect frequently, after my phone updated i had no issues. I only with i could wear it while i box, hard to have the watch on with boxing gloves but thats not the watches fault. I would def recommend this watch to anyone! I know people with Iphones that perfer this watch to the apple watch.

    Not too big for average person, the silicone band is very comfortable for all day use. The screen is clear and bright. The features all perform as expected including taking calls on the watch when you can't get to your phone. Never ran out of power even when working double shift. Love scrolling with the bezel of the watch.

    Too many features to describe.... I love that I can add apps to the watch like Tide Charts that are customized to my own needs. Easy to use and change order of apps on the watch. You can answer phone calls and texts without the phone being out which is a great feature when u cant get to ur phone right away. Charge lasts awhile but I just put it on the charger each night. I like that I can change the straps to a different style to change the look the watch. Face is big but not too big... I adjusted to it easily.

    Useful accessory for vision impaired

    I purchased this watch in rose gold for my wife who has AMD (vision impairment). She needed a watch with a high contrast face and large numbers to tell what time it was. There were many different faces for her to choose from and one of them works very well. Besides accomplishing that objective, she loves tracking her steps, sleep patterns and being able to receive phone calls without having to find her phone. She had to learn how to get to those items because the icons are so small she can’t see them, but once that was accomplished she is very happy. The watch is stylish enough that she doesn’t feel like she is wearing something outlandish on her wrist.

    This watch is just a fun watch to own. I can leave my phone in my bag and see, and answer, any text or call I want. Without picking up the phone. The UI is the best of all smart watches in my view because they use the bezel around the watch to move around. Yes there is touch screen capability but the bezel is so good you may not use it much. The downside is that Bixby is not google voice. It really is meant to answer phone related questions like what is the weather or list my appointments today. Not, what is the circumference of the moon? It is beautiful and rugged. I took it SCUBA diving (below 50 feet) and it was just fine. 41ft for 31 minutes and no problem.

    I bought this as a gift for my Dad, and he loves it! The screen rotates when charging (it charges on its side), and the outer ring to select apps is really nice. It came with two sized bands that clip on easily to the face. I called him through the watch, and the audio came in very well. He didnt have to place the watch directly in front of his face, which I know you have to do on some versions of watches that support calls. Text messages came through well (he has a Galaxy S10e).

    Love the way the watch looks. It's a little big, but that's the style. Quality of phone calls through it is amazing. I don't do much with the watch except to take an occasional phone call and to alert me when I get a text message while working. I find it too cumbersome to text back on the watch and the speech to text doesn't work well for me. I would recommend getting a bumper amd screen protector for the watch to save it from scratches.
