In my opinion, Samsung makes the most beautiful tech products you can buy, and the Galaxy Watch is no exception. The beauty comes with a cost, however, typically in that the software supporting the tech seems to exist in a vacuum. Their phones exhibit this in untimely OS updates and the unfortunate coercion to use the utterly useless Bixby AI. On the Galaxy Watch, this lack of detail extends to the apps. It's not only that the Galaxy Watch lacks decent app support and has a very limited number of apps; it's that the apps themselves are mostly terrible. A cursory glance at the app store and the ratings of the apps present will tell you all you need to know: when you can find an app, expect that app to probably cost you money and have a median rating of 2.5 stars. Luckily I don't really use many apps, it's just a shame that such a beautiful device is marred by such a glaring fault. A dedicated music player to interact with my phone, inasmuch as I could simply tell Bixby to play something and it would, would be hugely appreciated, and a navigation app akin to Apple Maps on the Apple Watch seems like such a common sense inclusion, but here you can expect to pay $2.50 for an app with low ratings. Nevertheless, the watch itself is beautiful to wear and fun to use. Its rotating bezel is far and away the most satisfying and tactile way of interacting with any smartwatch, and the plethora of faces (in my opinion) actually create such a strong selling point for this watch that I'm ready to forgive the lackluster app support. The battery life is absolutely triumphant at around 3-4 days, and the waterproofing is icing on the cake. Overall, I'm very pleased with this gorgeous chunk of tech on my wrist. It is a bit pricey should you buy it new, but find yourself a good grab on eBay and I do not believe you'll be disappointed, so long as you can make peace with the poor number and function of its apps.
So far I like it. I'm not a fan of the band that it comes with, but that's a 10 dollar fix . Other then that. It's really shed light on how i need to be more active. I think it will help with that. As well as being at work and not having to take out the phone when i have a msg. Keeps the boss of my a**.
Got this for $250 in Nov 2018, battery lasts a few days, and was pretty easy to connect to spotify so I can play music from it to my bluetooth earbuds while leaving my distracting phone at home when I go to the gym.
