I have now had the watch for about 5 days and have decided to return it.
- Good screen, sharp and nice colors. With high (and adjustable brightness) it also works in sunlight (although I only tested it in Swedish autumn weather).
- Bezel navigation. Skitbra to be able to navigate menus by turning the clock and using only touch display to confirm choices. Works when you are wet / wet on your fingers, with gloves, etc.
- Customizable. You can turn on all possible settings, add new apps, customize watchface, add widgets, and so on.
- Nice looking and bracelets can be changed to get the right look.
- Battery life. A showstopper for me. Even though it has div. Settings to shut down functions will last no more than 2 days in standby. The only way to get acceptable battery life is to go down to power save mode, which means that only black and white display and all features except phone notifications are running. But then, on the other hand, the clock becomes quite meaningless.
- Phone support. I had to install 3 (!) Apps from Samsung's ecosystem to get started connecting to the phone. If you also want to fully use the watch's exercise features, you need Samsung Health (S Health), then a total of 4 apps. You also need an account with Samsung, which is equivalent to a Google Account. Hit the clock, and the apps tweak all your data, and chart your personality. These apps have completely destroyed the battery life of my phone as they get started and do things in the background and send disturbing notifications. You can safely trim this, but the whole thing about the clock is so tight to the phone feeling a bit "bloaty". Even though the clock can run spotify (offline, without phone), you need to have all these apps and connectivity with Spotify on your phone to Spotify to start. You can of course drive the clock completely without a telephone, since it has wifi for own connection, but then you also reduce the functionality considerably.
- App ecosystem. Tizen has a pretty poor range of apps. For example, I wanted to use the exercise app Strava to log my exercise because I used it a long time ago. Strava is not supported, like many other similar systems, on Tizen. Samsung Health supports downloading data to other services (type Strava) via the cloud later, but this worked poorly and you can not, for example, real-time stream data to Strava, which is possible on other platforms.
- S Voice and microphone. The clock has a microphone that you can use to enter text in the clock. For example, if you want to create a reminder, write a message or just "ask the clock" something, then use S Voice. I did not function this function, it did not understand a single thing I said and misunderstood every word. It was sometimes a bit of comic results, but it stops being fun after the first few minutes. NOTE! This is any handicapped version of Sami's real "voice steering" Bixby. Maybe their watches will get Bixby in the future, but at the moment, S Voice is completely useless.
