    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've been very happy with the purchase of my Samsung - Galaxy Watch Smartwatch 46mm LTE. Before I purchased it I wasn't sure how much I would actually utilize it, especially since I stopped wearing a watch years ago. I've found myself using it significantly more than I even thought that I would. The watch has incredible voice clarity when used for calls as the person I'm talking to can never tell the difference between the watch and phone. I'm definitely glad that I made the purchase!

    Got this as a gift. Store was out. They shipped. The guy spent countless hours, days, and weeks between Best Buy in Cincinnati and Verizon. No one could get it to work as a cellular device. The watch was returned! Then purchased directly from Verizon. They too were NO better! They couldn’t get it to work as a cellular device either! They watch also returned! No one between 3 company’s could get it to work and they included Samsung.

    Bought this watch in September. Waited for Verizon to support it. After trying to activate it twice and spending hours on the phone with Verizon tier 2 support I decided to deactivate it. Last night I received an new TIZEN update. Tried again just using the Galaxy Gear app. It worked! The update fixed the bug of not being able to activate. So this watch is truly unlocked. Hope this helps.

    Purchased this watch specifically for using spotify without my phone, but after a few weeks I found myself using it daily. I purchased a screen protector, gel skin, leather bands, and now I wear out to events. Its design allows you to change its parts according to your specific use and the protection available allows me to use it anywhere with fearing that I'd damage it. The covers still allow it to look classy unlike the apple counterpart. Great buy

    Looks and works great. Activated on sprint.

    Its a great device to see notifications without using your phone every time. LTE streams spotify for my outdoor sessions and keep my texts coming in even though my phone is at home. Sprint has not released voice over LTE yet so no calls can be made from it. I have a Note 8 so it has great compatibility talking to to the watch. I feel its a typo on the "Only activates on T-Mobile" in the product description. My phones gear app activated it thru sprint for me. Took only 5 minutes to do so.

    I looked at different watches and kept coming back to this one. I like the round look like a normal watch. I did change the band to a stainless steel band and it looks great. The only issue that have found is that seems like before i got the watch my note 9 battery was lasting longer. But other than that no issues.

    How Would You Know??

    I purchased this beautiful watch in Pre-Order and received it on Aug 24. It is beautiful, but neither email nor SMS notifications are available on the Watch unless you are using a Samsung Smartphone. How would you know this, since it is not documented anywhere on the Box, the Website, nor in the Stores?? This makes zero sense - a beautiful Samsung smartwatch that doesn't fully work with the two major Smartphone Operating Systems? Something has to be wrong here!!

    Love the watch, but....

    First off, I love the watch. Two issues with it. The current apps are crap. Hoping Samsung will bring them up to par. Second, activating the LTE option doubled my monthly bill. And a timesaver tip: T-mobile's ONE plus plan is your best option. Trust me. I spent hours researching AND went in person to both stores trying to find some way to lessen the expense. But, other than that, I do love the watch.

    My opinion, this watch is the best one made from Samsung!! Looks great and feels great!! I'll seen review where customers may think this watch is impossible to set up with their carrier!! Took t mobile and their whole support team, TWO HOURS to get the watch running on their network!! Other customers who stated the watch couldn't be set up, ARE YOU SURE, YOUR CARRIER DIDN'T GIVEN UP ON THEIR END!! The watch states UNLOCKED!!

    Really happy with this watch. Its my first smartwatch and was super easy to get set up and to use. Build quality is excellent and getting 3 days on the battery. Using it for work and also for tracking health. I bought the unlocked version so when the carriers get their act together I can get connected.

    I bought this for my husband for Father's Day and he absolutely loves it. Adding to my Verizon account was very easy. I was able to do it all from the app and didn't even have to go in the store. He loves that he can still receive call and texts even when he leaves his phone at his desk, which he does often.

    Carrier is so important

    All I'm gonna say is the experience of had with this watch is if you have a certain Carrier you will not be able to use this LTE capability for a while and by that time I'm sure the next version will be out so I think this is a pointless buy unless your Carrier can do it because believe me mine Will sell them to you but can't do it

    This is my first smartwatch. It looks good and fits well. Originally wanted a watch and reminder for meetings and appointments. It does that well, and ...so much more. Easy to use. I now also use for health tracking (steps, heartbeat, etc.) and golf GPS, scoring, and stats (through an app that I loaded. ) I am glad I purchased.

    Cellular only works with TMobile

    The associate at Best Buy assured me this would work with Verizon phone, he even said he called local Verizon store in front of us and advised they were out of the watch. Buyers beware, regardless of what sales people tell you, the watch is only intended to work with TMobile

    This watch is really awesome. It has a stress reader, It has a heart rate monitor, it has so many features and it also allows you to add-on features that doesn't already come pre-loaded. It can also be paired with the iPhone but I'm happy to be an android type of guy.

    Verizon Compatible

    Was worried about all these concerns about this watch working under Verizon, and that it was exclusively made for T Moble carriers. Bought this, took it home, went through the whole opening set up process, established Verizon as my LTE carrier, and its been going great.

    I wish that Samsung offered a screen protector. other than that I have loved the watch. if you are thinking about getting it and do not like wearing stuff then get it as I do not have a problem with it and I got a tattoo to replace my ring.

    This watch is amazing. I originally purchased the Bluetooth version, but returned for this model. This one can be added to my phone plan for $10 a month and I can respond to text and other notification even if my phone is no where around.
