    The watch is operating as advertised

    I have been enjoying the watch since taking delivery of it. The watch is superior to a similar watch from LG. The cost of LG Watch Sport Unlocked GSM (Silver/Titan) [Wireless is almost twice that of the Galaxy. I paid $650 for the LG Watch while Samsung - Galaxy Watch Smartwatch 46mm Stainless Steel LTE cost me $369.99. The LG smart watch was returned because of poor battery. A full charge cannot last for a full day while Galaxy battery fully charged lasts for 4 days plus depending on usage. I have tested and used all its features. Every aspect of the watch is working as shown on its specification. It pairs and syncs easily with my Galaxy S8+. Its Samsung Health feature works as if its monitoring ones health by reminding me how long I have been sitting down. So far so good, I have no regrets for returning the LG watch to buy the Galaxy. The Galaxy smart watch is a great watch to use.

    Really good smart watch

    Watch does most of the advertised tasks well, tracks workouts fairly well automatically including running and playing sports like tennis or soccer. Call clarity is very good, nobody can even tell i'm calling them on the watch vs handset. The speaker is a little tinny but that's expected on a small device I suppose. I'm with AT&T and the number sync has worked consistently when I'm away from my phone. Battery life Seems to me to cap out at a couple of days with regular use. The advertised 6-7 days must be just for people using it solely as a timepiece. It charges in a couple hours so this isn't a huge deal. I usually just charge it a bit when I shower or when I'll be on the computer for a while.

    Should come with either a metal or leather strap

    The watch is beautiful. I have used this to speak on the phone when my phone was not with me and it works great. Calls are clear and people don't seem to have issues hearing me. Be sure to use the new Galaxy Wearable app instead of the old one. I had some issues initially of losing connection to my phone when connecting my phone to Android Auto which caused battery issues, but Samsung seems to have addressed this since the issue has not occurred in the last month. The biggest issue I have with this watch is the strap. I broke out in a rash wearing this strap. I have worn other silicon straps on other watches like the FitBit watches and have never broken out in a rash before. I purchased two Milanese loop strap watch from Amazon (one black and one silver since look good with the watch's two tone color).

    It is unlocked

    The device is unlocked. However, T-Mobile is the only carrier that currently supports the activation of this particular watch, so I can understand the confusion. Once the other carriers support it, it will be able to be activated with them and I'm sure the description will be updated on this page. Best to wait until your carrier announces they will be carrying this watch before buying it. Otherwise, just use it with Bluetooth until your carrier opens up the compatibility. Other than that, I get at least 3 days of battery and the watch charges super fast.

    Galaxy upgrade

    I bought this watch as a upgrade to my galaxy sport. This watch is very durable and much better made. I use it to take phone calls, listen to music and read/reply to text messages. I swim a few times a week, a nice feature is it literally spits out the water when you finish swim mode. the battery lasts a few days. I bought the 46mm for the bigger screen, the dial is the size of my whole wrist. I only gave it 4 stars because I have not hooked it up to. y cellular provider yet and the rating won't let me give it 4.5 stars. Overall I am very pleased with my watch.

    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.

    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.

    Watch has been great addition to my daily routine. Yes I said routine as this watch does way more than tell time. Heart rate, sleep reports, texting, calling, and way more. Easy to connect to my T-Mobile plan and works great. Long calls will drain you battery quickly.

    bought an Apple I watch 4 and paid $1000 returned it and bought this one. It has most of the features and functionality just without the price tag wish it was a little more Apple compatible but I have Samsung phone also so it’s really not a big issue great watch !

    The latest update makes the screens more intuitive. Connecticut to LTE makes it easier to not loose communication even if you forget to charge your phone

    I loved the fact that my watch would work when apple's wouldn't, but since they removed the mechanic it only works with touch to pay locations.

    I'm having a lot of issues with connecting it to Verizon. They keep saying it's not compatible. For anyone that got it activated, can you guide me in the right direction?
