Watch looks good and works well
30 September 2018
I purchased this watch pre-release after seeing it displayed at a Samsung stand in Westfield Stratford. I've been looking to try a smart watch and the only one I've seen so far that looks nice enough for me to wear was a £1000+ watch which I was not willing to go for. Unlike some reviewers I don't consider the £300 a high price (compared to most decent mechanical watches that run well over £1000+) and I'm happy it represents good value.
The watch is good enough looking not to look out of place when wearing a suite and I've found it integrated easily with my android smart phone. As a time piece it works nicely with a choice of watch faces that will work for most people. The health features work as well as any others I've experienced (I'm not really going to worry about under reporting of steps - I've never had a device that does not have foibles with that). The thing tracks my sleep accurately (which feels like I've got big brother on my wrist) and gives nice nudges if I've been sitting around too long.
Other useful features include weather at my location, text messages, weight goals etc. So far nothing has failed to work as advertised. Battery performance has been fine - never even come close to draining in a day (although I don't listen to music on it)
My only reason for giving a 4 star reviews is 1) the rubber strap is ok but I'd have preferred something a bit nicer included (easily remedied by buying something else thought) and 2) I've still not really used all the functionality deeply. So far so nice!
