It’s compatible with both Android and iOS devices allowing universal smart watch use.
Rugged and reliable. I wore it every day and it still works and looks like the day I bought it. And believe me I put the watch through some tuff situations. Hope I don't regret upgrading to the newer Galaxy watch.
The Bad: The wake up gesture only works about 20% of the time, which turns it from a watch into a bracelet. AOD is nice but I have to charge it every day. The bezel scratched in 2 places after simply bumping into someones purse. The large band is barely big enough for my wrist, and pretty uncomfortable. When listening to music on my bt speaker, if I walk out of range of my phone, it pauses the music. The speaker is too low to actually carry on a conversation unless it's totally silent. So far, this watch has been more annoying than anything The Good: Highly customizable. Choosing different bezels, watch faces, and bands is nice, and not overly expensive. Using the watch to skip songs or pause music comes in handy when the bt speaker or phone is not right next to me. The watch can control my phones alarms when they go off, which is helpful at 4 a.m. It's a nice looking watch, good size, and being customizable helps keep it interesting. Overall, this watch is a flop for me. The wake up gesture not working is a deal breaker. For now i'll use it with AOD on, but another device to charge every day is getting annoying, and it's only been 10 days.
I purchased this watch September of 2018. I wanted to give it a good run through before posting my review. So far, a year later, this watch has given little disappointment. Pros: GPS has been very accurate. Quality sound from the built in mic and speaker. Accurate heart rate sensor. Cons: Software seems to lag at times. I have had to do 5 hard reboots on the watch do to it freezing or locking up. Overall I have exposed this watch to all elements of weather. Rain, snow, dust/sand, and accidentally left it laying in my car on accident in the midday sun. So it proves to be durable. If you are looking for a great watch at a great price, I would recommend any of the Gear Series Watches.
This watch would be a 5 if there where more apps and if the returning Apps like Spotify and Smart Things would make it perfect I want to be able to turn my tv on with my watch and operate my music with out removing my phone out my pocket. I do like that I can watch Youtube on it couldn't do that with my Gear 2
