It’s gotten to the point where a watch is smarter than I am.

Gary.......The other day I read in a post where someone said we practically have to be engineers to assemble and operate high-end sound systems. That's not far from the truth. I am beginning to think it may also be true with the latest smart watches. Smart watches have nowhere to go but up. I suspect offerings will only become more incredible in functionality and their ability to help users with everyday tasks. I am very excited to receive my Samsung Galaxy watch. It may set a brand new precedent for me in how I view wristwatches.

Dan,
Go for it. My wife bought me a Apple Watch for Christmas when they were first released. The following year I bought her one. We are now on Apple Watch Series 4. I'm not a big watch fan but I do own a few other watches. I was hesitant about the usefulness of a watch that does more than tell time but after a few months I was totally hooked. I haven't worn a mechanical watch in a long time now. In fact I have no desire to even get one out of the box. I'm not too familiar with the Samsung but my Apple Watch 4 is a remarkable device. I'm sure the Samsung is equally impressive. They keep perfect time to boot. I think you'll love it.

Terry.......That is interesting to hear you no longer use your mechanical watches, preferring the Apple Watch 4. I guess we can call you a convert. I will not be surprised if the same thing happens to me. I have high hopes the functionality and usefulness of the Samsung Galaxy Watch will win me over. I have been interested in smart watch technology for several years but wasn't captured by any of the smart watches I looked at. I did check out the Samsung Gear S3 watch and the Apple Watch 3 but did not get excited enough to plunk down the cash. I was more curious about the Apple Watch due to all the hype surrounding it, but I am not an Apple iPhone owner so entering the Apple ecosystem with the Apple Watch didn't make sense for me. The Samsung Gear S3 was too large for my wrist. Now that the new Samsung Galaxy Watch is available in 42mm black stainless steel with the latest 4.0 version of Samsung's Tizen OS and improved battery life, it seemed like a perfect time to take the plunge into wearing a smart watch. I expect to be impressed with the new Samsung Galaxy Watch. By all accounts it is an amazing bit of wearable technology.

I was thinking of getting a smart watch for quite awhile when I was in HK last month I stumbled across a Garmin store, so I walked in and was really taken at the Fenix 5X Plus ( 51 mm) sapphire glass that does all I need for my cycling and keeps me up on everything from average heart beat, average resting heart beat, steps' you name it just like a smart watch should.

Honestly I didn't look or even know that Samsung had one out on the market, Im a complete Apple guy but there watch really didn't do it for me but the Garmin with its reputation in cycling was the clincher for me. I can also choose from over 1000 watch faces, widgets and apps for whatever sport I choose.

I love it so much I sold my Rolex Sea dweller, I don't miss it at all. The Garmin syncs with my Iphone and has text, phone calls and email alerts as well.

Highly recommend a smart watch and if I,d of seen the Samsung I would of seriously considered it as well, a real good looking watch.

Steven

I just checked out the Galaxy smart watch and they pretty much do the same as the Garmin and the others. The Garmin also offers a smaller dial with the only big differences is the pricing, Garmin around $800.00 vs $299.00.
