    Love my watch, upgraded to LTE version, after my bluetooth one's screen got cracked (Geek squad protected!! @@@@@@@ Only problem with the "unbranded" by a carrier/UNLOCKED ones that are sold by Best Buy, this model has a 1% chance of getting activated on VERIZON. Best Buy can't activate this watch in store as it has a *30* digit e-sim from Samsung, and Verizon uses *20* digits in there sims... not compatible with there system. I spent 6 DAYS with Verizon tier 2 support before they finally gave up trying to activate it, resulting in an increase in fees & taxes on my next bill.

    This is my third watch. First one was a Frontier that the outside bezel was breaking down. Second was a LTE Verizon that the battery could not hold a charge for more than 20 hours. Now finally third watch is a charm. Holds a charge for three days. I recommend to back up your old watch if you have a Samsung account. One problem was I lost all of my Verizon Assurion insurance on all of my Verizon equipment when the Best Buy store activated my watch, which covered lost or stolen. The geek squad covers the watch problem, so best to have both insurances no deductible with geek but does not cover for lost or stolen. I use it for my sleep monitoring, walking and my local weather reports. My blu tooth seems to loose my connection to my Note 8, has a limited connection distances goes to a wifi. I only made one outgoing call with the watch, by not being connected to my Note 8.

    Misleading

    The product description says in big letters that the device is UNLOCKED. But then you try to hook it up to your phone and you find out unlocked is not what you think it is. You have to scroll all the way down to see that in the language of Best Buy, unlocked means you can only use it on T-Mobile, the smallest service provider in America. Some say that maybe you should just buy it and wait for your provider to support it, and just use it with wifi or Bluetooth. The problem with that is that Verizon does not assure you that they will EVER be able to support the model currently being sold as they are a CDMA network. VERY MISLEADING.

    I purchased the Galaxy Watch w/LTE intending to augment my Pixel 3 XL phone. The watch is very much to my liking, and it does a great job with battery management. My old Gear S3 would be down to 70% battery available after one day's use, while the Galaxy Watch is showing 90% available in the same time frame. That's really decent. I purchased the LTE variant expecting to number-share it with my Pixel 3XL phone. Only after receiving it, I came to find that the two can't be number-shared - according to Verizon. . So, i'm using the Galaxy Watch with a Bluetooth connection to my phone. And it works great! I can initiate text messages on the watch, answer phone calls, and get all my notifications. It is disappointing that I can't use the LTE functions, especially since at least 6 calls to Samsung says that I should be able to do so. But, Verizon insists that it'sn't possible to do so. I've rated the watch 5-stars because I think it's an outstanding watch. Still, i'm hoping that one day Verizon and Samsung and Google will all learn to play better together.
