    Easy setup

    Bought this for my wife. Third watch I bought, the first two sent back because we could not get them to down load her contacts. The first two were different brands

    Great Watch

    I bought for my adult disabled son he needed to see the day and date and this has a good selection of faces and it provided what he needs. He loves tracking his gym workouts and walks with the dog all around good product.

    Good outweighs Bad

    The GOOD: this watch has virtually every feature you could possibly ask for in a modern smartwatch. There are actual working WearOS apps for all the important functions out there, and they all work very well for the most part. The watch-face customization options are incredible, and the two buttons are perfect in execution every time (I have my top button set to launch Google Pay with a double-tap, which has been fantastic for quick checkouts over the past month).I love the wealth of options available – vibration length and intensity are adjustable, and there are even multiple vibration patterns to choose from (for example, one of them is called dubstep and is just as annoying as it sounds lol). I love the simple option which silences phone notifications while you’re wearing the watch (no need for duplicate notifications), which is smart enough to turn itself off the instant you remove the watch from your wrist. It just works. There are many other multitudes of detail I could go into, but you’ve probably already read about them. Let’s just say overall, the watch is great!The BAD: battery life. Definitely less than 24 hours with moderate use and always-on display. I don’t understand how people use it all day and then keep it on at night for sleep tracking. This thing needs its overnight charge. With a high amount of notifications coming in, I’ve noticed dramatically worse battery life. As in, full charge at 8am to start work day and then it’s at 20% when I get home at 5 or 6. If you wanted to take this thing on a multi-day camping trip (I know, odd use case), it would last exactly one day before becoming useless unless you packed a charger for it. I suppose I’m really hammering this point home, but I came from a Pebble 2 (finally broke, sniff sniff) which lasted at least 7 days regardless of heavy use… so this watch’s battery life was a bit of a shock for me.Also a bit underwhelming to me was the fact that this watch, although being touted as the flagship watch for Wear OS 3, is VERY MUCH a Samsung watch. I was expecting to be able to use Google’s Wear OS app to set it up. Nope, you need the Samsung Wear app plus another Samsung app specifically configured for the galaxy watch 4, PLUS the Wear OS app if you want certain functionality to work (like the camera app). That’s 3 phone apps to run this watch in all its glory. Not to mention, it comes preloaded with about a dozen Samsung apps on it, which you can’t remove without rooting the watch (which I have no interest in doing). Ultimately, I was expecting more of a pure Google experience, but ended up with a lot more Samsung than I bargained for.All that being said, the watch is still a marvel of technology. In my opinion, the good outweighs the bad in this case. I love the watch, and will continue to use it heavily until Google finally releases the fabled Pixel watch.

    Very good for fitness

    The watch does everything I want it to do and a little more on top of that. Well worth the price.

    Love it!

    Works well. Tracks my steps well and it’s waterproof. The only downside is the battery life. I do have to charge it once a day or it dies. A plus is that it only takes about an hour and a half to charge.

    Very Pleased With Purchase

    I originally brought the Galaxy Fit II, but then saw the Galaxy Watch 4 was available for pre-order and that the Tizen OS was no longer going to be used for the watches. So it was a no-brainer to return the Active II for the Galaxy Watch 4 (Especially since it was only $50 more and came with a nice wireless charger for both phone and watch.So far I like the watch and have not had any issues with it. The changes made to the UI are nice and having it with the WearOS instead of TizenOS should mean more apps are available for it. Will be interesting to see where this partnership between Google and Samsung go and what effect is has on the non-Apple watch market. I am thinking it will be a good thing for both Smart Watch makers and User.The watch seems to be accurate in all the biometrics it takes and the mapping of walks/runs are accurate. The auto-workout feature works pretty good and it does not take to long for it to register that you are walking/running. But if it does track automatically, it does not map your walk. You only get the mapping it you manually start the walk/run. Wish you could have it map no matter how the workout is started.The hourly chime does not seem to work if you have your system sound set to vibrate. When set to vibrate the hour chime should vibrate or still make a small sound every hour. They could make this customizable. None of the watch faces I had on the Galaxy Active II came over to the Galaxy Watch 4, which is understandable with the new WearOS, but you still lose any investment you made with paid watch faces.I like the electronic bezel over the physical one. It just give the watch a more polished look. I also has a Samsung Gear S with the bezel and over time it got all clogged and got harder to turn over time (and very hard to clean out). You do not have that problem with the Electronic Bezel.Overall, this is a very good smart watch with a user nice interface. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking at a smart watch to integrate with an Android phone, especially Samsung. I have heard the integration is not as nice on non-Samsung phones, but I suspect that will get better over time and Google and Samsung continue to work together on the WearOS and the Samsung UI. For the price you cannot go wrong with buying this watch. If you buy through Amazon I would recommend also getting the extended warranty, that way if any accidents happen the watch is covered. I always but the extended warranty for electronics that are worn or carried around a lot.

    Watch

    The watch it’s self work good the only thing I don’t like is I have to charge it every night and the battery should last longer than 16hrs

    Works as I need it.

    The watch is an old version but still works for the purpose I got it for which is for my exercise activity and heart beat readings. It took me awhile to sync it with my phone but once it is sync I had no issues with it.I would recommend this watch because I have no issues. Easy to use and I like the different faces. I like simple things and this one is simple enough but it works.

    Very nice watch!

    I love this watch, as I still continue to use it 6 months later at the time of this review. If your looking at something to help you keep track of the time, exercising, sleep and more, than this is for you. It has a very easy to use app, and very easy to set up, takes no more than 5 minutes to set up, not including the time it takes for the watch itself update. It looks great and functions great. You can add nice wallpapers to the background and change how the watch face looks, with different colors and styles. It does a great job at counting steps and keeping track of exercises. Even if you don’t tell the watch your about to exercise it will automatically detect that you are doing one and start tracking calories burned, steps taken, and more! Even if you don’t have a Samsung phone it still will work with any android phone for the most part. I no longer have a Samsung phone from when I bought this watch, but I still continue to the watch with my Google Pixel 7a. The only thing about the watch that isn’t the greatest is the battery life. This watch will last one day, that’s all. Luckily it is easy to charge as it just uses a included wireless charger, so you won’t have to plug the watch in. Overall an amazing watch packed with great features for a great price. If your looking for a watch that isn’t going to break the bank but also isn’t complete garbage than this is what your looking for!

    Very Nice product

    05/13/2023: A really, really nice smartwatch. My wife has an Apple watch and it is nice, but I have to say that this Samsung 4 is a notch better. Her watch cost $280 after a deal with her phone service. My Samsung 4 was just under $90 from Amazon, and it is a real beauty. I am still learning some things about it, but love it, love it. Quality plus. But, another BUT — like the Apple Watch, the battery life is terrible. You have to charge it every day — that is, unless you shut everything off, or down. There is a feature on the watch, where you can select Battery Saver features. Still, so disappointed in battery life. I have a cheap smartwatch that gets me 5 plus days, and it does nearly all of the things needed to keep track of sleep and Heart rate. The cheap watch also has a Blood Pressure reading — yep, BP. On the other hand, the Samsung 4 has ECG, which is pretty cool, and it keeps a running record that you record for your doctor. I will be trying the different settings on the Samsung, after all, I do not need all of the features that come with the Samsung 4. But, like many others, I do wonder why the cheap smartwatches are able to get so much use out of their batteries, as opposed to these HIGH priced, name-brand watches. As it is, if you plan on using the sleep feature, then you will need to charge every day, or night before going to bed. Getting 2 days of use is a pipe dream if you use the watch to track your movements and monitor your cell phone and massaging, which I do not really need, but it is pretty handy. Maybe you could get 2-3 days, if you shut everything but the TIME off. I will find out. Remember, by shutting all of the AUTO features off, you still have access to manually use, or turn on a feature you want to use for the moment. What a nicely built watch — more later –05/15/2023 Update: Battery life is terrible. You can extend the battery life by shutting everything off, but that defeats the purpose of having one of these Smartwatches, right? Last night, as I went to bed, shut everything down, leaving only the sleep mode on, with a full charge. Got up this morning and it had 86% left. I turned everything back on, played with the settings, on, off, and other features, etc. Also, had to reconnect to my phone to record my sleep activity. I have been up for 2 hours now and the battery reads, 45%. I got up, just under 2.5 hours ago, activated the watch, turned wifi back on to communicate with my Samsung Galaxy 22 phone, and have already used up half the battery capacity. My wife says it is not big deal, after all, she has to recharge her Apple watch every day. Great, so that makes me NOT feel better, not after owning some cheapy watches that never needed charging for 5-7 days, and they tracked my sleep, my BP, my steps, and, really, the cheapy apps were easier to navigate. Seriously, the Samsung is a beauty, but am I really buying jewlery?

    Great Watch – Not Perfect

    This is my 3rd “Smart Watch”. My 1st was a Garmin which was very basic and bought by my wife. I was an avid runner and that was the Garmin’s main intended purpose. However, shortly after receiving it, I had to give up running due to prolonged issues with my hip. So, it became a very expensive heart rate monitor – a function at which it excelled. My 2nd watch was a Fossil watch which was an impulse buy. It was visually attractive but excelled at nothing else. It sits on my bedside table and is rarely worn – poor integration with my phone and poor battery life make it slightly better than useless. [A cautionary tale against impulse buying.] I have been hesitant to pull the trigger on a more expensive smart watch but I lost the Garmin watch and really missed having a continuous HR monitor when I exercised. I am an old dude but my fitness is very important and HR zone targets have a proven benefit. It also keeps me on track in the gym. Well, I saw the “renewed” version of this watch, and the price point made it an almost painless proposition to give it a try. So far I love it. I have a collection of watches and usually rotate them for work but since buying this watch all of my other watches are collecting dust. The setup was painless. I have begun using an exercise app that has a continuous HR monitor and workout timer. This is the feature that is most important to me but I love playing with the other features. I emphasize “playing” because none of the other features are terribly important to me – they are merely novelties. But over time I feel some of the features will become second nature. I love being able to see my messages on the watch while at work but with Android I can just as easily see my messages on my laptop while at work [can’t do that with Apple!]. Overall, a solid watch. MAJOR CON: battery life. Given the small footprint of this watch, and all that it is doing in the background, I feel a bit like an entitled brat complaining about the battery life but, if I could change one thing, that would definitely be it.

    First Smart Watch, Lots of Power, Short Battery Life

    I purchased the Samsung Watch 4 because we had so many sunny days this Spring and I could not read my old Fitbit Charge 4 in the sunlight, even in the shade on such days. I tried the Charge 5, which was readable, but lacked features that I liked on the Charge 4. I purchased the Samsung because it seemed to do everything that I wanted. This turned out to be only partly true.First the good: the screen is very readable even in bright sunlight. It was very easy to get up and running, bonding to my Android phone quickly and easily. Its capabilities go well beyond those of the charge varieties of Fitbits, as with answering one’s phone, conducting phone calls, showing map directions from google or other map programs when walking about a new city, serving as a flashlight, and many other features that I’ve not tried. Its like a smart phone on your wrist, except with a much smaller screen.Second, the bads: the battery lasts 30-40 hours in my experience, with GPS turned off and Wifi on automatic. This is far less than the Charge 4 will run almost a week on one charge, and is a bit of a nuisance, but not a deal breaker since one can charge it in the evening in about an hour. It turns out that one of the features I was looking for, stair counting or elevation measuring (which is lacking in the charge 5), is a feature of the watch 4, but it doesn’t work very well or consistently. It under counts them by quite a bit. (Yesterday, it counted 4 flights on a day when I walked about 20.) The other disappointment is with the software for tracking exercise. You can only use it on a phone (or perhaps an Android tablet), rather than on any device you might want to (as with a Fitbit). And the data display is inferior to that of all the various Fitbit apps (android, windows, apple). I had naively expected it to be better than Fitbit’s, rather than more basic and more difficult to read and make sense of, and limited to just the phone. For example, there is no Samsung health app for a PC–at least that I could find.Overall a very good product, with a bright clear and responsive screen, lots of apps for the watch, and the convenience of taking care of many phone chores without taking the phone out of one’s pocket or pack.

    Very nice product

    This smartwatch is really nice. The 40 mm model looks good and is comfortable. Battery life is less than 2 days with all the functions activated, but it’s what is promised, so no surprise here.

    Battery life

    Great product nice looking watch. Love that you can make calls with it. The only thing I didn’t like was the battery didn’t last long enough. So I am returning the four and buying the six because it’s a little larger in size and holes a bit more of the battery charge. All in all a great item to have.

    A prototype of great promise, but Samsung released it before it was ready

    Reviewing 40mm LTE Silver option, which comes with a white band in small/medium size(Samsung’s website lets you pick either the small/medium or medium/large band in whatever color you want, FYI)The most recent update (not sure of exact date) causes the double-press shortcut to randomly be lost. I have it set to Google Wallet (formerly Google Pay) and of course this bug always happens when I’m trying to pay and I have to pull my phone out to pay anyway.2022/04/24 UPDATE (2 STARS): The latest update broke more things in LTE mode (including “Remote connection” and Google Voice support) and sending/receiving texts in LTE mode still hasn’t been fixed since the last update broke it. I’ve also discovered the heavy battery loss is when the watch is out of cell network range in LTE mode (e.g. inside a building with no cellular signal). When paired with the phone, it works great now, but I don’t recommend the LTE model. They’re still haven’t figured it out yet and I’m doubtful it will be fixed by the time the Watch 5 comes out, if ever.2022/02/12 UPDATE (2 STARS): Samsung sent an update to the watch which fixed group chat in Samsung Messages but sending or receiving texts in LTE mode does not work now. I don’t always receive calls in LTE mode now either. Google Messages still can’t send or receive texts in LTE mode either. The update did at least fix the problem of not being able to receive Google Voice calls in LTE mode. Samsung seems to not understand the purpose of having LTE because the only thing that I’ve found to reliably work in LTE mode is the phone app (outgoing calls only), but if you use the phone app your battery will die rapidly. I also finally got a response from a fellow user in the Samsung forums (not the various Samsung tech support agents I spoke to, who know nothing about the Watch) to fix getting notifications from the phone in LTE mode: go to Settings > Advanced > turn on “Remote connection” (it’s at the bottom and appears to be under the “Gestures” heading, but it’s actually just in it’s own section without any heading, which is how I initially missed it).2022/01/23 UPDATE (2 STARS): I’ve had the watch 2 months now and haven’t had any updates in December or January to fix any of the bugs. The same problems persist and occasionally the battery life drops significantly with the same usage. Sometimes the battery life has been as short as 8 hours without using LTE. In LTE mode, I’ve had it lose 60% in 3 hours when I haven’t even been using the watch. I’ll update this review if Samsung ever decides to finish the software for this device properly.2021/12/05 ORIGINAL REVIEW (3 STARS):► TAKEAWAYSamsung has a great concept here, but I can’t help but feel I’m still testing a beta product that has been launched prematurely (and this review is being written more than 3 months after its release). Many problems could be resolved with alternate apps and future software updates, but even if all the software issues are fixed, you’re still left with a watch that can only sometimes get you through a full day of use. In my opinion, the LTE model is not ready for market yet, and it’s quite a bit more expensive when you factor in the monthly charge that at least some carriers charge for it. If you’re okay always having your phone nearby, you’ll probably enjoy this watch, but that kind of defeats the purpose for me.► DESIGNThe design of the watch itself, as well as the interface, is clean and simple. The watch is thicker than I’d like (about twice as thick as a non-smartwatch), but that’s a necessary sacrifice to fit a battery in. The watch is slightly bigger compared to my non-smartwatch and I’m really glad I got the 40mm version, as the 44mm one would have been too large proportionally to my wrist. I’m a 6-foot tall, 175 pound male, so even the 40mm version will probably be comically large on a smaller person.The included band is soft and supple, far more than I expected (not stiff at all). The clasp is well-designed and looks great.The display is not as crisp as I was expecting it would be, but it’s not bad enough to really bother me either. The display surface is not very scratch resistant. After one week of use it already has a scratch. I’ve had my Galaxy S9 for over three years without a scratch.An unexpected feature of the display is a toggle to turn on extra sensitivity so it works with ordinary non-conductive leather gloves. Leaving the setting on all the time doesn’t hurt use without gloves either so you can set it and leave it. To turn the feature on, swipe down from top of the display, press the power icon, scroll down to the bottom, and turn “Touch sensitivity” on. Something I didn’t consider when buying the watch is that you could have screen burn-in, depending on the watch face(s) you use. Turning “Always On Display” off should help with this.► BATTERY LIFEThe battery life is nowhere near the 40 hours advertised. Many of its other limitations could conceivably be corrected with future software updates, but I just don’t think the battery life is going to get better by the leaps and bounds it needs to hit the 40-hour mark. The initial setup, which included 2 software updates and a few app installs, drained the battery from 100% to 19% in 3 hours.In normal usage I get at best 24 hours, but that’s only possible when LTE isn’t being used. I’m normally seeing battery life in the 14- to 18-hour range using mostly Bluetooth and LTE in auto mode, but even less if any calls are made (it loses nearly 1% per minute of talk time). Having the “Always On Display” turned off and using Bluetooth almost exclusively puts me in the 16- to 23-hour range, typically. In the 14 charge cycles I’ve tracked so far, there has been a lot of fluctuation. Bear in mind that batteries degrade over time, so this is likely the best it’ll ever be.The battery takes 90 minutes to charge from 0% to 100%.► APPSThe next biggest problem this watch has is a shortage of useful, functional apps. The Samsung Messages app can’t respond to group chats like the Android version can on my Samsung Galaxy S9, and it’s not fun to get messages from 9 other people in a group chat saying “you only sent this to me”. You can install Google Messages and it’s a much better developed app, but it doesn’t work in LTE mode using your main phone number (even when set to SMS mode only). I experienced a bug in setting Google Messages as the default app via the app prompts, but was able to set it in Settings > Apps. There is no Google Voice, Google Translate, nor Google Assistant (and the built-in Bixby app can’t do much at this point). Useful smarthome apps like Alarm.com and myQ are also unavailable. You can’t install the Ring app, but notifications with snapshots do come through to the watch so long as it is paired to a phone (notifications don’t come through at all in LTE mode).The built-in Outlook app is really buggy. You can’t delete an email in a notification (even though there’s a “Delete” button, it doesn’t work). Outlook doesn’t work at all in LTE mode either, unfortunately. There’s no compose option, but you can reply to emails (without being able to change the subject line). The Google Keep app is handy to have my grocery list on while shopping hands-free, but there’s no ability to edit notes, only create and tick off list items and read notes. Gboard is also available and is a must have for this watch because Samsung really bungled the default input (although the Gboard voice input doesn’t work in LTE mode). Google Maps is awkward to use while driving, but would probably be good for walking directions. However, the app requires processing from your phone and therefore doesn’t work at all in LTE-only mode, so you might as well just use your phone.The nicest app for me – and one of the main reasons I bought the watch → is Google Pay. Contrary to information I found online, you do not need to unlock the watch before making each transaction. You just have to enter your pin one time when putting the watch on and it stays unlocked until the watch is next removed from your wrist. The only downside is that you have to open the app first before each transaction, unlike on an Android phone where you just have to hold the (unlocked) phone near the NFC point to make the transaction. I made Google Pay one of my shortcut keys to open the app, though, so I just double-press the home button and hold my wrist near the NFC point to make a transaction. I’ve tested the app at several terminals without issue in both paired and LTE modes without issue, but it doesn’t work in any mode at one business I shop at; at that place, I have to get out my phone and pay. The inconsistency doesn’t inspire confidence about leaving my phone behind.I didn’t buy this watch for the health features and don’t really intend to use them much. Assuming they’re accurate (a big assumption on any smartwatch), the simple apps for measuring steps, pulse, etc. seem fine. The built-in music app works and connected to my Bluetooth headphones without issue, but transferring music to the watch is painfully slow. Nevertheless, it’d be handy to have for workouts or running, if that’s your thing. Pressing and holding the home/Bixby button works great for setting reminders, timers, and alarms.► LTEBoth AT&T and Verizon charge $10/month (AT&T, at least, is about $15/month after hidden taxes and fees) to use the watch as a standalone device, despite vague language on both of their sites about connecting it to your phone’s plan and sharing its data (seemingly implying it’s not its own extra line). It makes the cost of this $250 watch more than $600, and that’s if you only keep it for two years (and assuming they don’t raise the monthly fee).Getting it connected to AT&T was an ordeal. I chatted with a rep on the AT&T website and they said I needed to go into the store to activate it, but the two guys trying to help me in the AT&T store couldn’t figure it out and said I needed to do it online. They mentioned that activating Samsung wearables has been an ongoing problem for AT&T for some time. I did eventually get it to work online, using the groundwork they established in the store.To me, having the option to leave my phone at home and use this as a stand-alone device is the coolest feature, but it just doesn’t work practically. For one thing, using the LTE mode drains the battery too quickly (and in an incredible fashion if you want to actually make a call), and then you’re stuck somewhere without a working watch or a phone. Also, when I was testing the watch with brief calls, it dropped one of the calls and displayed a message about overheating (and this was in cooler weather).I had weird glitches with the built-in Messages app in LTE mode as well: messages that wouldn’t send, messages that appeared to send but didn’t, messages sent hours later, and messages not received. As mentioned above, the Google Voice app isn’t available for the watch, so I can’t send texts or make calls through Google Voice either. I use my Google Voice number for work and I can receive calls to it on the watch, but cannot make outgoing ones. Without having my phone on me, I’d be limited to just my personal number for making calls/texting.When in LTE mode, an annoying always-present icon shows up at the top of the display to let you know you are no longer connected to your phone.► INPUTTexting is a real pain with the default functions. I thought I’d just be able to use the microphone to speak my texts, but the speech recognition is not that great. What’s worse, is after it makes a mistake, there’s no keyboard to manually make corrections. You can backspace over words, but going back to the keyboard option clears the message you spoke. The keyboard is awkward to use, combining 3-4 letters per button like an old phone. It does have handy preset responses you can use/create, though, and you can edit and reorder them.I use Google Gboard on my phone, and thankfully there is a Gboard app for the watch as well, which you will almost certainly want to install. It has a QWERTY keyboard, which of course is crazy small on a watch, but it still worked pretty well for me, including swiping words. Best of all, it has its own microphone button as part of the keyboard, so you can use both speech and keyboard input when composing messages. Unfortunately, the microphone doesn’t work in LTE mode, only when the watch is connected to your phone.► WATCH FACESAlmost all the watch faces you can get for this watch are a train wreck. The few built-in watch faces are ugly and/or awkward to use, and there aren’t a lot of options on the Google Play Store right now either, especially since I want a 24-hour watch. 3rd party watch face stores offer a lot of choices and there might be a good one there if you can find it in the 100,000+ options. From what I’ve read, though, the 3rd party watch faces can reduce the battery life, and that’s already a big problem for the watch. I settled on the “Pixel Minimal Watch Face” from the Google Play Store until I can find or make a better one.► OTHER THOUGHTS● The included band was white instead of silver (as of this writing, photos on this product page showed both colors for the LTE model). If you order directly from Samsung’s website, you can pick whatever band you want.● The watch I received appeared to have been previously opened. There was dust and scuffs on the watch, band, and box when I opened it (that cleaned off, thankfully). This is yet another reason I would recommend buying directly from Samsung’s website instead of Amazon (Samsung offers an education discount, FYI).● As of this writing, Samsung representatives I’ve talked to on their website say they do not sell replacement wireless charging pads for the Watch 4, so you’re limited to the one that comes with the watch unless you want to get a 3rd party wireless charger, or maybe one of the charging pads for the previous Watch models will work (there’s no indication they’ll be compatible or not on their website).● Samsung chat support is terrible. They know nothing about the product or its services, but will tell you whatever you want to hear regardless of its veracity. For example, I was told an impending update would “fix everything” including the app and battery issues I was experiencing. I’m not holding my breath for that miracle update and you shouldn’t either. Perhaps multiple updates over the next 6 months will fix many of the issues.

    This is a great watch!

    We purchased 2 Samsung Fit Pro 2 watches a long time ago. They lasted years, one the charging posts wore out eventually the other finally the battery became bad and had to be charged too often.I purchased one of these two years ago then purchased another for my mom, we were concerned due to the fact that we were used to the thin line face of the fit pro but have found this is absolutely comfortable even more so! The battery life depends on how many messages you get how often and how you use it. I find that they are lasting about two days before needing to be charged. Charging is really fast so it’s no problem at all.Great Price!Great Battery!The functions are just what we were looking for!I do recommend this watch.Let me also add that I use this watch with my Samsung Note 9. I know there were some questions, it does work flawlessly.

    I like this smartwatch! Go for it at it’s current price

    I was looking for a good smartwatch (which also has the features of a sports watch). My need was more for a smartwatch, one that has capabilities of receiving phone alerts/notifications and also of being able to make a call.I decided to go in for this after reviewing all options available and I feel I made a good decision.It fits my wrist well.It looks quite stylish.It can support installation of all major apps from is own Play Store.It has a clear display.Offers good controls.And it’s priced well for my needs.Initially, I had almost decided to return after a few days of receiving but that was before I had fully understood it’s features. I cancelled the return after opting for it, after checking out available options again and realising that this one, in this price range is my good buy.It’s been just weeks since I started using it and I’m hoping I’ll not have to change my opinion!

    So far so good

    I’ve only had this watch for about a day now. In some cases it meets my expectations and in others it succeeds. There are other things about it that I have mixed feelings about, but I’m sure that as I continue to use it and figure it out those areas of concern will iron themselves out.I’ve owned several smartwatches in the past including a Ticwatch 2 and a Samsung Fit2. Both I liked well enough, but I found they lacked many health features. I have a Samsung phone and since my Fit2 worked more seamlessly with it than my Ticwatch 2, I decided to keep with the Samsung brand.I’d recently updated my phone from a S8+ to an Ultra S22 Plus. While my Fit2 still worked very well with the new phone, I still had to manually enter sleep and there was no way to measure my blood oxygen. During Amazon’s Prime Day, they had a great deal on the Galaxy Watch 4, so I decided to take the plunge.I’ll get the issues I have mixed feelings about out of the way first. When I got the watch yesterday, I got it fully charged and paired it with my phone easily enough. Later on while I was playing around with selecting watch faces and figuring out the AR emoji watch face, the watch somehow disconnected from my phone. I was able to get it to reconnect by turning the Bluetooth off and on through the watch. It did the same thing later on in the day while I was just sitting and watching TV and not even touching the watch. Both times the issue occurred, my phone was less than a couple of feet away from me. So I know it wasn’t because my phone was too far away. Hopefully this won’t be a reoccurring problem. Another issue I seem to be having is notifications that I want to show up on the watch aren’t showing up. I’ve already gone through the notifications settings on both my phone and the watch and set things up the way I want them, but the notifications are still not showing up on the watch. I’ll have to play around with it some more.Now, on to the good stuff! It seems to do a great job of reading heart rate, sleep, steps, basic stuff for a smartwatch. I really didn’t know what the body composition or the ECG was all about when I ordered it, but I thought, “Hey! This could be cool. Why not?” And it is interesting and gives some valuable insight. However, in order for it to take many measurements accurately I have to move the watch about a finger width above my wrist bone on my arm. I’m fine with that. A lot of other smartwatches that take the same kind of readings work the same way. It would be nice if the smartwatch industry could find a way to take those measurements without the wearer having to move the watch around, but until then those who want to keep a close eye on their health will have to choose watch bands for their smartwatches that can be easily adjusted.Another thing that I didn’t really know anything about was the stress measurement feature. I have absolutely no idea if it measures stress accurately, and, frankly, I really don’t care. However, I do like that after it takes the reading it offers a built in breathing exercise. I may not know anything at all about how the watch measures stress, but I do know that breathing exercises have been known to help relieve stress and anxiety. They also help people focus and even get to sleep faster. So, having something like that built into the watch is pretty cool!Another thing that I found really cool are all the different music features. Not only can you control music apps on your phone through the watch, but it has a built in mic and a small speaker. So, if you’re away from your phone or don’t want to take it out and wanted to have a voice recorder handy to make notes or something later, you have access to one right on your wrist. You can also directly download music from your phone to the Galaxy Watch 4 and can listen to music through either Bluetooth connected earbuds or directly through the little built in speaker.As with all new gadgets, it takes some time to get used to them and figure out which apps you really need and which ones you don’t, and exactly how you’re going to use it. I imagine, over time, the watch and I will get used to each other.

    I only got this for afib testing… but now use it for more

    I started going into AFib last year and the doctors told me about watches that would be able to read. I don’t have an apple and I was never going to pay $400 for a watch that tells me if I’m going into afib, and I saw this refurbished and good reviews. I think that with my Android and now I use it to take text while I’m walking, use it for when my phone is charging, and also executive exercise functions. It’s a really good watch and for the price you can’t beat it.

    Best Smartwatch Available?

    Ive had many smartwatches. Moto 360, the bulky LG Sport, Fossil Gen 4 and Fossil Gen 5 (that I lost). I loved the Fossil watches because they are high quality watches using WearOS. Never liked Samsung because of Tizen. So when I lost my Fossil Gen 5, I naturally was going to upgrade to the Fossil Gen 6. I did do some other research too and the more I researched, the more I started to like the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. I don’t like bulky watches and the Watch 4 was more slender than the Classic. Reading these Amazon reviews, I was almost scared away. Anything from Google Pay not supported to the touch bezel doesn’t work at all.Let me just say, not sure if these reviews were early updates or what but Google Pay works just fine and the touch bezel works just fine (although I scroll with my finger anyways). The touch bezel is good for turning volumes up and down and it works perfectly whenever I use it.Another contributing factor to choosing Galaxy Watch 4 over Fossil Gen 6 is the Fossil wasn’t releasing with WearOS 3.0. I believe at the time of me typing this review, the Galaxy Watch 4 is the only released device with WearOS 3.0 and it is a major improvement on previous WearOS versions.I’m not a health nut but the integration with Samsung Health is amazing. I do like to track my steps and sleep and this watch is awesome for that. For sleep, all I do is turn bedtime mode on and go to sleep. The watch does the rest. Monitors blood oxygen and how well you slept. Not sure how accurate it truly is but I do like knowing about how long I’ve slept.As far as battery life, it lasts at least all day long. Usually longer. I use it moderately at work checking notifications, replying to messages and controlling my music and when I get home from working a 8-10 hour day, my watch is around 40%-30% typically. I put it on the charger before bed, put it on at 100% at bedtime and wake up to about 85% battery for the day.DO NOT LET OTHER REVIEWS DISCOURAGE YOU! I challenge you to do your own research. Watch YouTube videos or even go to a local phone store and look/feel the watch. It’s definitely the best watch I’ve owned to date.If I had to give downsides, it would have to do with Samsungs integration into WearOS 3.0. The Bixby button is NOT reprogrammable to Google Assistant but can be disabled (not remapped). However, from videos I’ve watched, the Bixby assistant is useful on the watch as it can turn on and off settings by asking it. The other complaint is not being able to reprogram the Samsung Pay button. If you press and hold the bottom button, it opens Samsung Pay by default. Which is annoying if you want to use Google Pay. However, once you properly install and set up Google Pay (and make it default payment method), you don’t need to open Google Pay to pay anywhere. Just tap your watch. But if you want to use a different card, you’d have to go into your apps and open Google Pay or assign it to open with a double tap of the top button (that action can be programmed to anything.).With the Galaxy Watch 4 still fairly new, I’m hoping Samsung continues to provide updates from community feedback.And by this time, I’ve hope you read my entire review and are placing your order now. Stop second guessing yourself, this watch in my opinion is the best out there right now.

    Watch features

    It is a little large for my small wrist. I have it on last hole and still have to slide up for a snug fit. I love that I can answer my phone on it. I wanted it for the fall detection as I am 77 and gave up the button as to awkward when working outside and dont want to wear two devices for that. The fact I have to charge it daily is not a plus but so far I have managed it ok. I also wanted it for sleep oxygen as I wear oxygen at night.

    Love it!

    I love this samsung galaxy watch it was in perfect condition! Came within 3 days! Easy to connect to my phone! The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is my fitbit I could charge and the battery lasted 3 days. With this watch you have to charge it everyday! But I’ve always wanted one so I’ll take it!!

    A couple flaws

    Charger gets REALLY hot after about 20 minutes and actually overheats the watch so it shuts off. Then the charge lasts like a day and a half.

    Luv the watch but battery life should be better.

    My husband has a another brand watch and can go a week before he has to charge. I really love the watch, but I have to charge the battery about every 2 days. Galaxy Watch should improve their battery life. Also, wish it had the blood pressure feature. It does an ECG, heartbeat and oxygen levels which is great!

    Upgrade from Active2?

    I am a fan of smart watches, over the years I have had a Pebble, then a progression of Samsungs– Gear Fit, Gear Fit Pro, Gear Sport, and Active2. Before smart watches I was a collector of mid-tier mechanical watches, attracted to watch faces that I liked. (Looking at you Lum-Tec!).Smart watches did not attract me for fitness tracking, but rather for the multitude of available watch faces. Truth be told, I do like the form factor of apple watches, but the 24-hour battery life and needing an iphone are reasons I originally decided to steer towards Samsung. My primary uses are for call / text notifications, Ring door alarms, exercise and sleep monitors, and timers/alarms. Much has been written about Samsung watches, and based on Amazon comments there seems to be a love-hate relationship with the Watch 4, so I am just going to limit my comments to a couple of points.First, battery life. I was happy with the Active2. Battery life with both the prior Active2 and this new Galaxy Watch 4 is OK, not great, for me, usually 2-3 days…The initial setup scheme, unlike the Active2, showed less than 24 hours use from 100 to 12%–so I understand where “poor battery” comments come from. Over time and charging cycles, dependent on the selected watch face, along with power saving tips, I can get a solid 3 days.Power saving tips. AOD “Always on” needs to be OFF, display set to 10 seconds, wrist flick screen OFF, HR measurements set to every 10 minutes except during daily exercise sessions, snore detection and blood oxygen at night need to be OFF, Wireless OFF, NFT toggled OFF. I also found that some settings were set to off, but actually on (blood O2 at night, set to off, but running at night. I had to reset the watch?). Battery life could be much better, Samsung really needs to look at how they implement defaults that consume power considering the vast number of comments that complain about short battery life.Second, initial setup. With the Samsung Gear app already installed on my pixel 4a 5G phone, set-up was easy with a switchover from my Active2. Most of my prior Active2 settings were carried over with the exception of NFT toggled back on, and a required update of the Samsung Health app to show my default exercises.Third, a new marketplace. My most frustrating moment was the fact that previously purchased watch faces are not carried over due to the switch to Wear OS, and away from Tizen. Samsung Marketplace is no longer used for Watch 4. Oh well. There are plenty of options from google play (add watch face to searches) and from Facer. Be aware, increasing the number of complications, animations, and colorful backgrounds seems to noticeably hit battery life. As indicated, I have found a number of preset options that give me a solid 3 days of battery life, with the power saving hints above in play.As for watch operation, it is all very familiar to me. I am learning the new operating system and menu. A positive surprise was a totally flat face allowing the use of glass screen protectors, very easily positioned and attached. The Active2 had a curved edge making the install of screen protectors more challenging and less durable along that same edge. I also like the design of the watch band, which sits mostly flush against the curved case, maybe following a styling cue from apple.If, like me, you had a prior Samsung watch, this is technically an “upgrade”–but lots of adjustments need to be made to obtain good battery life, and some operational issues persist. With the current deal it might be worth a try. IMO, Samsung still has some firmware work to do.

    Great Step Up From Fitbit Versa 4

    Good upgrade from Fitbit and great price point. I don’t need it to do much but what’s important to me is the tap to pay option and tracking my workouts. Fitbit switched to Google pay and it wasn’t compatible with my Amex credit card. Samsung pay works great! It definitely tracks more accurately than my Fitbit did. I’ve only had it for a week but so far it’s worked well. I usually charge my phone and watch at night while I read then go 24 hours before charging again so I know it lasts at least that long and that’s with tracking a workout and doing tap to pay and texting on it and other various functions.

    Good quality

    Battery lasts all the way through my shift and could probably wear it while I sleep if I didn’t chose to take that time to charge it. The app is iffy but that could be an issue with my phone being older. The watch does well tracking my sleep when I wear it to bed but I don’t often do that as the light on the underside is bright and tends to wake me up.

    BETTER THAN FITBIT

    I do like this watch very much. I gave 4 stars and would give 5 if I didn’t have to charge it twice a day. I hope soon an update fixes the problem. I will sure change. I am dealing with it but sure wish the battery lasted longer. It does so much more tracking and more accurate than my versa 3. Maybe that is why the battery depletes so fast. I charge in the afternoon when it’s 68 percent, if I don’t it won’t last the night. When I get up in the morning it is at 30 percent. again I charge or it won’t last the day. I love the sleep tracker and even does snoring recap. So charging over night isn’t for me, plus I set morning alarm. If anyone has a suggestion other than take apps off I don’t use. I have done that. Set up was super easy. I replaced the silicone band because I despise those. The watch face is very clear. If the battery lasted 2 days like fitbit versa 3 I’d be over the moon with this watch. I will not part with it. Maybe I. A year or so I can upgrade to a more recent galaxy watch but at this time it’s all I could afford and with prime day it gave me 50.00 off. I hope my review doesn’t prevent anyone from buying. I did read about battery issue but believe an update may help.

    It has a speaker!

    I previously had a really bad experience with the Samsung warranty department. They are not something I trust at all, but I am hoping beyond hope that they have improved because if I have another bad experience, I will totally switch ecosystems.At this point in time, I am loving my new Active 4. The technology has improved so much since my Gear 3. The number one improvement is that this watch has a speaker (and mic). You heard that right. I searched online and could only find that Active 4 does not have a speaker, but indeed it does. I tried calling myself on my watch and I heard my voice loud and clear. I also have it read me my messages, since my eyes are so bad I can’t read them. There is a zoom function, but that’s clunky. There’s also a function where it talks and tells you every function you touch, but that’s even more clunky. If you have bad eyes like me, go with Bixby and let her talk to you. She’ll read those texts.The pay feature on Gear used to delete my cards on a regular basis and it wouldn’t work at the registers. On Active 4, it works every time, and I have yet to see it disappear off my watch.The health feature tracks everything I want it to track. The EKG function is cool. I don’t use bioimpedance because it requires manipulation, meaning it doesn’t just measure by normal wearing; I have to think about it and tell it to measure. I have a scale that does bioimpedance and gives me my weight, so I don’t need it in a watch, but maybe others do. I like that it tracks steps. On the phone, I can see how many miles I’ve walked and how long I was active every day. Wish it would tell me the miles on my watch; maybe there is a way to do that.The weather feature is cool. I like seeing the temp on my wrist, plus hourly predictions on rain.I charge the battery when I sleep, so I don’t use the sleep function. When I wake up with 100% charge, it tells me it will last more than 3 days. When I go to bed at night, it says there’s more than 2 days remaining. That’s better battery life than my Gear had (it used to die by evening).I’m removing one star because I still can’t get the warranty experience out of my system. Will update the review if anything negative comes up.

    Works great with Galaxy Phones!

    I had a Fitbit Sense prior to this but after drowning it shortly after the warranty expired, I decided to try out the Samsung watch since I had a Samsung Galaxy phone.Overall, I am happy with it and would buy it again as long as I have a Galaxy phone.However, if you are considering making the same switch, here’s my take on the differences. I read a lot of reviews on both before purchasing and can provide the low down on just how bad some of the cons are that you probably read in reviews yourself.Battery life – Yes, it is less than the Fitbit. On average I have to charge it about a day sooner. (This would be based on my personal settings on both watches, which I left quite similar.) It doesn’t bother me as much as I thought, I typically charge it while I am in the shower and that seems to be enough to keep it going each day without much fuss. There is also a low power option that pops up and asks if you want to turn it on. It limits some functions but the important stuff stays so that last 10-15% can last a long time if you need it to.Galaxy watch was missing one feature from Sense but it was one I never used (it was a 3 letter one) so I can’t remember what it was. Galaxy watch allows you to measure body fat where Sense didn’t. I was more excited about gaining the body composition measurements than losing any feature I lost on Sense so feature wise, Galaxy wins.Integration of texts, calls, basically ANYTHING is better on Galaxy with my Galaxy phone. If you are a Samsung user, you will be much happier in this area. Spotify works better on Galaxy. Fitbit app often dropped connection with my phone that required troubleshooting with app versions, uninstall, reinstall, reset Bluetooth, power cycle, etc. Took hours at times.In order to use all Sense features, you need a subscription that costs $15/month (as of when I cancelled it). No subscription need with Samsung. Basically the same readings and options in the app but I will say I liked FitBits app better. Samsung health is good enough for being free though. I don’t have any regrets here.20 months of Fitbit premium or less basically pays for the Samsung watch so in the end, I am coming out ahead here financially. Factor in the savings including the price of replacing the Sense and I’m ahead financially almost immediately!Overall – Fitbit Sense has slightly better health tracking (better app) and battery but Samsung Galaxy has much better integration with my phone and provides nearly the same tracked items as Fitbit and some Fitbit doesn’t.If you have a Samsung phone and are considering the switch, do it!If you don’t have a Samsung phone, it comes down to how much you intend to use fitness and health related items, how user friendly of an app you need, and if you are willing to pay for all features.Note for My Fitness Pal users: Fitbit has integration issues with My Fitness Pal sometimes but it seems to work seamlessly with Samsung health so far.

    Meh. This is an unfinished product that looks great but doesn’t function well.

    I had the 44mm Bluetooth version for about 2 weeks and then returned it. Overall it feels like an unfinished product, with noticeable software glitches. It looks like a million bucks on your wrist, and the hardware is clearly capable, but the software is so far from complete.During the last week of owning this expensive time piece, Samsung released an update (CUID) that broke the heart rate monitoring every 10 minutes. This was the final straw for me. I could have switched to continously, but that kills the battery. Back to Amazon it went.The software doesn’t seem complete. Bixby is good at accuracy in recognizing speech, but it’s functions are very limited. I’m using a galaxy s10, so I had the “optimum” experience, but there were still many shortcomings. You can’t, for example, tell Bixby to “navigate to X location”. (“Sorry, I don’t have a capsule for that”). When I asked Bixby to create a shopping list, or add an item to a list, again no “capsule” for that. I found a lot of commands that would be useful haven’t been programmed yet. I found a way to add “capsules” to Bixby, but there were very few and they weren’t useful at all. Google assistant was supposed to be made available on this watch, but as of October 2021 it still wasn’t available.The app selection is also pitiful. Google has a keep app for wear OS (notes and lists), but in typical Google fashion, it’s broken. It doesn’t pull correct information when it syncs, it somehow pulled information that was months old, then when I made changes it failed to propagate to my phone. YouTube music was made available, but it’s extremely limited. I use YouTube music premium as my streaming service, even with that it’s nearly useless. You can of course pair Bluetooth headphones to the watch, but you can’t stream from YouTube music. You can only download playlists to the very limited internal storage (8gb available from the start), then you can only shuffle your playlists, no option to play them in the order you created them in, or select a track. I was hoping to use wifi with the watch to stream without my phone while using the treadmill, but apparently that’s not possible. You can of course use the watch to control playback on your phone, but that’s only for skipping tracks and play/pause. No changing the Playlist or selecting a specific track from the watch.I use Google voice as my primary phone #. Google voice is not available on wear os, which is a huge bummer. Whenever I want to use Bixby to dictate a text, it goes out through the default sms app on my phone (galaxy s10). This isn’t ideal. I also can’t browse through my text conversations like I would be able to if they were in the native Samsung sms app on my phone (it syncs to the watch, which is neat).The selection of other apps is extremely limited. There are (often) clunky third party watch face apps, and even when they do work, they drain the battery like crazy. Just stick with the watch faces that Samsung has in the wearables companion app on your phone. Nearly all the other apps available are workout coach type things. Why do people need their hand held so badly through a workout? Totally useless garbage.The system seems pretty quick overall, just lacking in any kind of polish. There are moments of lagging and framerate hitching, making it feel like wear OS is just a hog that can’t be satisfied even with modern smart watch processors. I did manage to get a solid 2 days on each charge with always on display turned on and lift to wake turned off, so that’s an improvement over the apple watch. One feature I *loved* was being able to charge the watch from my s10 using power sharing. I could plug my phone into the charger, flip it over and power share like a little Qi pad. Awesome. This means that the watch supports Qi charging, but Samsung has locked it down so it only wirelessly charges from their own wireless chargers. I found that it would take about 1.5 hours to fully charge from near-zero. It charges faster if you turn it off completely.Unfortunately, It’s just not worth $300 in its current buggy, unfinished state. Google clearly needs more time to finish optimizing wear OS 3.0 and build more apps for it.One complaint I also have is that the “touch bezel” is not actually touch sensitive. The digitizer does Not extend to the bezel beyond the display. It simply reads the touch input from the edge of the display. This means when you are doing the “bezel spin input” you have to develop a muscle memory to find the outside of the Oled rather than literally touching the physical edge of the glass of the bezel, which would have been way better at simulating the mechanical dial input you get on the classic.I found the bio-sensors to be pretty accurate. The ecg and body scan are cool, although the latter doesn’t seem quite accurate as the results fluctuate a lot. Heart rate works well and spo2 during sleep also works well, with more data points and more detailed info than the fitbit charge 4 I got for my mother. (fitbit only gives you o2 “variance”, low or high on a chart with no %. The galaxy actually shows you the exact saturation %). Blood pressure readings are still not available in the USA, because of the FDA. (apparently this feature goes back to the active 2, which still isn’t approved).

    Not accurate on most measurements

    This watch is pretty good for basic things however it’s accuracy on most of the medical measurements seems to be off. First off doing the body composition it quotes my base metabolic rate as being around 2400-2500 calories. I’m a 6′ 5″ 345lbs man. I eat 6,000- 10,000 calories a day for the last roughly 27 years since I was 12 years old and have maintained the same weight since then except for the 45 lbs I gained during my marriage and divorce about 10 years ago. From 12 to around 25 years old I stayed within a 10lbs range averaging 300lbs “295-305 daily” on a diet of 6,000-10,000 calories a day. Last time I cut my calories down to the 2,500 a day calorie range I lost 80lbs In 30 days and I got screamed at by my doctor that this was dangerous for my health. So I went back to my normal 6k-10k a day intake. Also it measures my o2 levels at 93-95% yet I can measure on a oximeter from the doctors or an actual medical grade one and I never get less than 99% even with being a pack and a half a day smoker for almost 30 years. Even my doctor has never seen a o2 reading from me of less than 99% except one single time in 21 years when I had what was diagnosed as a upper respiratory infection that lasted 21 days just a month before the first news of the crown virus. This coming from someone who only gets sick once every 2-3 years and only lasts 12 hours my entire life. The watch doesn’t seem to have the blood pressure monitoring that the ad claims. I’ve tried everything that every video online has said to do to enable it with zero luck. I also don’t know what the stress meter is measuring because I have anxiety issues and it will measure no stress at all during a panic attack yet measure at the very top when I’m completely calm stress free and sitting by myself in a quiet room after my medications have kicked in. The body composition seems to be off and by doing a basic bmi calculation it appears to simply take your height and weight into account and give you the same exact numbers that any basic calculators will tell you. For instance it tells me that at 345lbs I’m 129lbs of fat and 40.1 on the bmi scale. Just so happens that a basic bmi calculator and medical chart will say that my ideal body weight is 215 lbs for my height which 345 minus the 129 puts your right at that same number. Thing is until a few months ago I worked out doors pushing carts in the heat and cold out working 4 other cart pushers put together that where all around 18 year old non smoking not overweight young men. I work out in the gym and have a lifting capacity of a perfectly healthy man when taking my size into consideration aka I can bench press my body weight leg press twice my body weight blah blah blah. For me because I’m close to the size “height and weight wise” of two normal men that means I’m benching right around 350lbs and leg pressing right around 700lbs so why is it that it’s telling me that my body fat to muscle ratio is exactly where the medical charts say I need to be when it’s supposedly measuring fat and muscle mass? Why does it say that my calorie intake is supposed to be around 2,500 calories yet I know for a fact that this isn’t true because at that level I was losing close to 3lbs a day during a 30 day trial pushed on me by my doctor? If I’ve maintained my weight for close to 30 years taking in 6,000-10,000 calories a day? This watch appears to be junk after a few months of owning it. Now the only thing I ise it for is for the sleep tracker which I have zero faith in and to control and listen to my music text messages phone calls and tap to pay. I have zero faith in any of this watches health monitoring. It is fun listening to myself talk and snore when I wake up but other than that the health aspect is just junk.

    Short battery life.

    I love everything about this watch and how it works with both my Samsung tablet and phone.I especially like the sleep tracker and when I walk it shows it paths I took.However, the watch battery does not even last 24 hours.

    I bout this for my wife for Christmas. She loves it. It’s her first one, but it’s pretty big on her small arm. Maybe the white makes it stand out more, that’s the only reason I gave it a 4 rating is size fror a woman

    Love the watch, hate the battery. Actually bought a second charger to keep at work because I like sleeping with the watch on to get the data and cannot get enough charge before leaving the next morning for it to last without a second charge in afternoon.

    It’s smart but not always

    The main reason I wanted to upgrade from my Fitbit which I’ve had for 2 years and still love it, was as I am getting older and live alone the idea to have the 911 and SOS feature if I fall was the intent. Plus I wanted to have the ability to text and make/answer calls and not be glued to my phone to do so.I have a Samsung S21 so I decided to go with the Samsung Galaxy watch after the extensive research to find what would best suit my needs.As with all new technology, it takes awhile to set it up and customize it. You can do pretty much everything from your watch in combination with your phone, receive texts, alerts, calls, make shopping lists, use Bixby, Google home, check weather and so much more.I’m pretty basic and don’t rely on technology for everything in my world, but the apps I do use are easy to function.My main peeves are first, the Samsung Health app when it comes to tracking my fitness. The steps are off, the calories burned and the heart rate monitor…all read significantly higher than they should. I tested this when I thought I was about to go into cardiac arrest based on the tracker saying my HR was almost 200 when doing a moderate workout on an eliptical. The next day I wore the Fitbit on one wrist, the Samsung on the other and stopped every 15 minutes to manually take my pulse when there was a discrepancy between the two devices. My HR measured by taking my pulse and counting the beats every 15 minutes then multiplying by 4 was always in line with the Fitbit. So, I will probably continue to use the Fitbit when working out and want a more accurate reading. After 3 workouts the Samsung watch recorded me 100 more calories burned, anywhere between 15-25 higher average heart rate and at least100 more steps during an hour workout. Unless my Fitbit has always been off which I never thought it was…The other major peeve as most have mentioned is the battery life. It’s garbage. As mentioned, I’m not someone who uses a ton of apps. I use a static Samsung watch face (nothing animated or another app like facer), and keep all alerts silenced except text & calls on vibrate, which aren’t many. It will hold a charge for most of the day, but never a full 24 hours. I’m not sure if there’s a hack I can do to keep the battery from draining outside of putting it in battery saver mode which turns pretty much everything you WANT to use the watch for…off.For the price, bells and whistles, you’d think the battery would last at the least long enough to track a full day of steps, exercise, sleep activity, the phone features, run a few apps, etc …It’s at best (for my purposes) ok, I have it and it will get used, it’s nice hardware for sure, it just has a couple of flaws, unfortunately to me they’re big ones….but I guess nothing will ever be perfect.
