I have the 42cm LTE Galaxy and my greatest criticism is battery life. I can normally just squeeze a day out of it - about 20-22 with all connections switched on. With a lot of talking on it that depletes and I dare not Display Always On as that also chews up battery time. I imagine the larger face watch would do far better but it was too big for my wrist. Other than that it is a great watch/telephone.
I have the 46mm LTE Galaxy watch and it don't work as good as the Galaxy Gear S3 frontier Bluetooth that I also have. When u use the Galaxy watch LTE as stand alone it over heats often especially when connection strength is weak or if you talk on it too long. I've always bought Samsung product from tvs to as far back as the Galaxy S2. I really think Samsung is getting much cheaper and not spending enough time developing good products. Roll outs are too fast. I think I may switch to different android products. Also most of there applications suck and are glitchy. They need to go back to basics stick with hardware and let Google develop software for them.

does anyone get the latest one ui 1.5 update for samsung galaxy watch bluetooth version (r 800)? specially in india and dubai?
Does the Galaxy watch have the sensors the Active has that will be able to measure ECG with a future software update?
Pervez, 01 Dec 2019Does the LTE version run perfectly well with non-samsung phone like OnePlus 6t?Sorry Pervez but I really don't know. I suspect that it is compatible because it is apparently also compatible with iphones so I would imagine that it would be suitable for any android watch. You simply need to install the Galaxy Watch app from the play store.

Achics, 27 Nov 2019Can you send pictures from the phone to the watch?I've never tried although it does have a gallery app. in the watch settings and I'm assuming its the gallery app from my phone but again I haven't tried it.

It has a choice of watch faces and colours that can be changed easily at any time. My greatest gripe is short battery time. Whilst connected to Bluetooth and WIFI and mobile data/data roaming I will not get more than one day from a charge and need to charge it every night. Other than that it is a great watch...Â…...and also fun to play with. You can also elect to receive weather updates and news notifications amongst other things.
After having a cheap China smart watch (battery gave up after a year). I decided to treat myself to the galaxy watch 46mm bluetooth only. Paired it to my j7 pro.
Well what a pile of junk it really is. Sometimes randomly disconnects from my phone, even when it's in my pocket. Pedometer not accurate, apparently I had walked 1000 steps whilst on a 10 mile drive. went up and down stairs 10 times, it only counted 1, after receiving a number of texts the voice recognition stopped working then started again after an hour. Heart rate monitor stops and have to tap measure over and over to get it to read regardless of where it is on my arm.
After searching the net theses issues that have been inherent since the birth of this watch and samsung have not been able to rectify these problems.
I am sitting here waiting for Argos to open so I can get a refund
Apart from having nicer faces to choose from it is no better than the cheapie I have been wearing for the past year. And that was only 20 quid. For 300 of my hard earned cash I expected a lot better.

Waggers, 29 Oct 2019The cellular Version is only with EEMine is the LTE version and initially I could not receive calls out of Bluetooth range. I mucked around a bit with the connection settings (not sure if there was an overnight update at some stage) but it is now working fine.
I had this watch for almost 8 month, it was wonderful until I found out that some how water penetrated into it although it never dropped neither got any harmed.
When I came to Samsung laboratory, I was shocked to hear this watch has no warranty if water penetrates to it.
What a shame big Samsung.
I decided to through him to garbage, A 400 $ watch !!
Never trust what you see or hear .
I understand from Samsung Australia that there will be e firmware update to rectify a common problem that allows phone calls to be made out but not received in LTE mode. Hopefully soon.

Had my phone sent away to Samsung (in Melbourne) and had it thoroughly checked out and returned the next day. It checked out fine so I went to the Telstra tech desk. After checking all settings they replaced my sim card and it's now working fine. If you drag down on the screen and go into settings you should be able to connect. The cost here in Australia through Telstra is only $5 per month.
