I've had smartwatches for years and I love them. They are the best gadgets ever! :) I've had loads and I change them at least once a year. If you look through some of my other reviews, you will see. In the last year I have had the Amazfit Bip, Huawei Watch GT and now this. Before that I have had the Moto 360 Gen 2, the Samsung Galaxy 2, Samsung Galaxy Sport, the Huawei Watch 2, the Sony SW2 and SW3. I could keep going on, but you get the idea. I've spent a couple of grand+ easily on smart watches.
Anyway, my last purchase was the Huawei Watch GT. A lovely watch. Cheaper than this, but massive on my wrists and the notifications weren't very good. So I've been waiting for a small watch that was waterproof, had good notifications and was comfortable to wear. I had this on pre-order wating for it to be released and I've had it for a few weeks now and these are my initial impressions.
Firstly, to get the elephant in the room done and dealt with. No, I don't miss the rotating bezel. If you have had Samsung Galaxy watches before and used it, you might think you will miss it. But honestly, it is more intuitive to swipe on the screen rather than turn the bezel anyway. I found on previous Samsung watches that I didn't use the bezel - it was often slippy and not very accurate. If you are coming from Androidwear, then you won't have ever been used to the rotating bezel, so this will allow you to interact with it just like any other Androidwear watcn you've had.
It's not Androidwear of course, it's Tizen. There are pros and cons to this. There are nowhere near as many apps for Tizen, but all the ones you would want are there. Plus Tizen is much more efficient from a battery point of view and also less laggy. You will find that interacting with a Tizen watch is more of a pleasant experience than an Androidwear watch.
It is very comfy on. You quickly forget you are wearing it. I certainly couldn't say that about the Huawei Watch GT that whilst comfy, was large and caught on my shirt sleeves. The strap has a neat way of tucking the loose end through the buckle so its on the inside of your wrist and doesn't catch. Very clever and very comfortable. You do get 2 strap sizes in the box. One for skinny wrists and one for larger wrists.
The colour choices, certainly at pre-order, were limited. I played safe and got the all black. But I wish there had been an option for the silver one with a black strap. Bear in mind that you can easily replace the strap. But knowing how often I change watches, I played safe and just went for black on black with no intention of paying more than I needed too. Now I've decided the watch is a keeper (for this year anyway), I wish I'd put more thought in to colour choice. You may want to too.
Navigating the watch is easy. As you turn the watch to look at the screen, it wakes up. If you get a notification, it wakes up too. You can press on a notification to read it, or you can just swipe it away and move on to the next one. If you press on the notification to read it, you can then scroll up and down (eg to read an email or SMS) and depending on the type of notification, you can interact with it - eg reply to some one.
Here are a few examples of what you can do:
SMS - Read, reply, delete
Email - Read, reply, delete
Twitter - Read, follow back
Whatsapp - Read, reply
Facebook notifications - Read, show on phone
Facebook messenger - Read, show on phone
They are the ones I use on a daily basis. There are probably more! :)
If you miss a notification, you also get a little dot on the 9 'oclock marker. This dot shows that you have unread notifications so you know you can swipe right to check.
I didn't buy the watch for it's fitness properties, I got it because it is new and I wanted to try it. However, they seem very good. The step count is as accurate as I've seen and much more accurate than my Amazfit Bip was. It matches my other devices to within a few steps over a mile. The continous heart rate monitoring is interesting and fun and I look forward to new developments with that - eg doing the same as Apple and monitoring for fibrilation. I also like the stress meter and the floor counter. Living in a 3 storey house, the floor counter gets some hammering I can tell you! But it keeps me fit I suppose. The best fit feature for me, working from home as I do, is that it nags me to get up and do some simple excersises. I like that. They are as simple as a torso twist or telling me to get moving, but it's still good.
As a paddle-boarder, I wanted a waterproof watch that I could wear in the sea. It's waterproof to 50m - that's static of course and it does warn you not to wear it surfing, but under a wetsuit I've found it fine and surfing with it is no problem and with it being so light, you forget you are wearing it.
Battery life? Well this is where most smartwatches except the Huawei GT and Amazfit Bip struggle. I have EVERYTHING turned on. Bright screen, continous heart rate detection, etc and at the end of a day I still have between 60-70% battery depending on how much I have interacted with the watch. I did go away for a long weekend and put the watch in to powersaving mode (B&W screen, no heart rate but still notifications) and I had 50% battery after 3 full days away. So that't not bad. The supplied wireless charging pad is great and very fast and charges the watch in no time. I'm looking forward to my wireless battery pack arriving then I can charge it on the go if I need to.
The watch supports NFC but only, of course, Samsung Pay, not Google Pay. So support for that depends on your bank. Halifax, RBS, Lloyds etc don't support it. Santander and a few others do. Check on Samsungs website if this is a deal breaker for you. It sort of is for me. I use my phone to pay all the time and would use my watch. I am considering switching banks to get Samsung Pay support, but haven't decided yet.
The phone support is good. If you use a Samsung phone, its all built in. If you use a non-Samsung phone (I'm on a Huawei handset) then you need to install the Wearable plugin and Samsung Health. Both apps are very good and give you lots of info on your watch and lots of info about your health. I have included some screenshots so you can see. I have also included some screenshots of me wearing my watch and it side by side against the Bip and a Citizen standard watch. I've also included a screen shot of my Huawei Watch GT on my wrist so you can see how big that is compared to how much nicer a size this is.
I finally think that this is the killer watch that Android users have been waiting for. The classic looks that Apple watch users want (ie a round face). Small, light, powerful and a good price. What is not to like?
Hope you found that useful. I waste my hard earned money buying stuff so you don't need too! :) In this case, it was wasn't wasted. I love this watch!
Update April 2019
On the manufacturer website and all advertisements for this watch, it states:
"With blood pressure monitoring and irregular heart rate detection, you can ensure you’re on top of your health at all times."
I have been unable to find this feature, nor download the "My BP Lab" app that is required. I have contacted Samsung Support and got mixed responses from "it's built in to the heart rate monitor" to "you need a third party app, we don't provide support for 3rd party apps" etc etc.
In the end, I took it upon myself to find the answer. I contacted the developers of the My BP Lab app that is the app you are supposed to use and they said this:
"Thank you for your email. In order to participate in this study, you will indeed need an eligible Samsung phone (Galaxy S9/S10, Note 9). Unfortunately, the calibration process requires users to take a blood pressure measurement on the specialized optic sensor that only the models listed above have. The Galaxy Active watch must be paired with an eligible phone in order to use the My BPLab watch app. We do not currently have plans to expand this app to older devices. We apologize for the inconvenience.
My BPLab Team"
So if you want to monitor for irregular heart rate or check for blood pressure, you MUST have a Samsung Galaxy S9 or S10 phone or a Galaxy Note 9. No other phone is supported. There is no mention of this requirement on any Samsung web site. It misleads you in to thinking that the *watch* supports this feature. It does not. The watch requires a companion app that is only available (at the time of writing) on a S9/S10/Note9 phone.
This may be a deal breaker for you. It isn't for me, so this watch still retains 5 stars as it is an otherwise great watch. If 4.5 stars was an option, I would knock some off for this misleading advertising. It may well be a deal breaker for you. So at least you have been warned.
