I waited to get a smartwatch and I'm happy that I got this. The color is true to what's advertised and its very simple to use (the rotating bezel is best!). I love that it does not look like other smartwatches. Very elegant.

I had the S2 and this is much better. Functions are smoother and battery life is a day longer than the S2. The price is higher also but the nicer band and look make it worth it to me.
I just picked it up and love it! It has a premium look being stainless steel and it comes with a leather strap. The rotating bezel also compliments the design and brings it back from the previous models. The watch faces have a great mix of health options, classic looks, or informative with dashboards.
The health functions greatly increased too adding SpO2 and VO2 max. It still has stress measurement (heart rate variation), heart rate, and sleep analysis which is improved on. Also, the run analysis was improved on which measures variation in cadence and time in the air between your feet.
Pending: The ECG was recently FDA approved but needs to be rolled out via a software update as the hardware is set up for it. The blood pressure monitoring was rolled out in South Korea but not the United States yet as that is pending regulatory approval.
Also, the watch can be used to control power point slides or your phone camera if you'd like via Bluetooth. It can also link to your SmartThings app and control devices or scenes.
It's a great smartwatch for working out or in the office with its premium design. Other watches like Garmin are more focused on heath and running but this watch is good many ways. It also works with non-Samsung phones but is a little more limited.
High expectations for a high profile new product from Samsung...and mostly great. The fit and finish of the watch itself are great, performance is excellent, smooth scrolling and opening apps. Setup is easy, and the bluetooth pairing was solid, not dropping or weak unless you are out of range. The health and fitness tracking features are very good...the step count is a bit lower than another brand of tracker to which I compared it, but the heart rate and SP02 are surprisingly accurate. Sleep tracking is fine - nothing exciting but seems to track overnight heartrate and sleep stages readily. The rotating bezel is great, and while the watch is a bit thick, it is not TOO thick, at least for my average sized wrist.
Complaints are more preferences....it comes with a leather band which is silly for something advertized as fitness oriented...got sweaty and nasty during exercise as expected. How hard would it be to include a silicon strap in the package (that you pay $400 for!)...I would like to be able to set scheduled SPO2 readings rather than only being able to do them manually, and SPO2 is NOT part of the sleep tracking which seems like a miss. And of course as of this review the highly anticipated ECG and Blood Pressure features are not active yet, more than a month after the release of the watch. I understand Samsung wanting to get this to market before the Apple Watch 6, Withings Scawatch and Fitbit Sense, the competitors that will also have ECG...but I am not too confident that the ECG stuff will be active soon, given that the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is still waiting for the ECG a year after release.
Bottom line, great watch even without the marquis features..and if and when they are added if they work well, it will be a truly premier experience.
Works great and my battery lasts for over 2 days! Even does blood pressure after downloading the My BP Lab app! The wrist action switching works better than my Active Watch did. Lots of apps and faces available.
When compared directly to my older Galaxy Watch, this one does not actually look thinner or feel lighter but does seem to fit a bit more comfortably. Sleep tracking is about the same as the previous model. Pulse ox can be finicky but I think you get a pretty good idea if you just take it a few times and look for the average. I am disappointed that the bezel remains black on the silver model; I am still hoping for an all silver one. The bluetooth seems to work a little bit better and the watch has less disconnects from my phone. The NFC also seems to be slightly improved but I still occasionally need to pull out my phone to use Samsung pay.
The main thing to be noted with this newer model or the original Galaxy watch is that you need to manage your battery life. There is no way to use all the features and "play" with the watch and get a full days use. I do not use "always on" display and I keep the screen brightness very low (usually about 3) and still need to charge for about 1.5 - 2 hours during the evening and occasionally give it a little charge in the morning.
Overall this watch is excellent. I love the features and bought this one on launch day because I was so happy with the original. I am not disappointed with the minor improvements for the increased price. I am looking forward to the ECG feature and will try to update my review once that can be tested.
A:AnswerHello TAG, good question! With this watch you can make and answer calls or messages right from your wrist! You just need to make sure the watch is connected to your phone through Bluetooth or through a mobile network. With a LTE watch model, you can even handle calls remotely. ^Elizabeth
A:AnswerGPS means it does locations, they all do. Unlocked means it has LTE and can be a phone without your actual phone being nearby. In other words, it has its own line and you pay a small monthly amount. Also means it is not “locked” to a particular carrier such as Verizon or ATT. You pick.
