This is the second smartwatch I am trying after the Galaxy Gear Sport. This one is ideal for my wrist size and has all the necessary functions. I was a little worried about the accuracy of the step count, but after checking the step counter I concluded that it is accurate enough with +-3% variation, which is good enough for me.
I got this watch because I wanted to become more active in my life, this watch is great for that, just the fact that I'm investing money into something health-oriented makes me motivated to do more healthy stuff. The watch itself has a solid build and the face is just the right size. Since you don't have any open ports I feel very confident with the waterproof capability, I shower with it and have had no issues. If this is your first watch you might find the rubber straps a bit uncomfortable at first but you quickly get accustomed to it.
This watch is very comfortable to wear, it’s attractive and very functional. The watch band is soft, flexible, pleasant on the skin and easy to buckle up. Samsung offer a good range of watch faces preinstalled and many more on their galaxy App Store. Whether working, walking or exercising one barely notices or feels the presence of the watch. I’m delighted with the watch face I have chosen because it shows my heart rate, the number of steps taken, calories used, the weather, notifications and several other features of interest to me without looking cluttered. The functions of the watch are smooth, quick and easy to operate. Screen resolution is excellent and a pleasure to look at. I have several watch bands with which I can readily and easily replace just for a change or the novelity of it. This watch is not cellular and therefore cannot make phone calls but it can initiative a call through the phone and must be answered using the phone. Importantly, it doesn’t have a speaker and hence one can listen to music but it must be through headphones. Overall, this watch is well designed, a pleasure to wear and excellent for the purpose I wish to wear it for.
