Is it??
Or is it a hacked version of WearOS 2 to run on Exynos soc? Or maybe even Tizen hacked to look like WearoS?

Just don't get why Google aren't releasing WearOS 3 until at least. Q1 next year, not even for Fossil who they own, yet Samsung try to give the impression of Wear OS without ever saying Wear OS 3.

Show me a screen shot from a watch that says Google Wear OS 3 and then I'll believe it. Until theen it's a con.

It is running on android 11 (version used for Wear OS 3.0).
Wear OS 2.XX is running on android 9.

Glad I'm not the only one who thought this was the biggest con job they pulled over us! Google being lazy and forgotten the existence of wear os....and samsung gave them an easy out...

Where's that week long battery life they talk about? That's the one thing I hate about the w4....the abysmal battery life....

I am getting maximum a day only and sometime even less.
With heart rate off and hardly done any excercise.
Display itself is taking at least 7% battery per hour even if I am idle.
If I put any fancy colorful watch face, it drains toooooo fast.

It's usually an offending app or usage of LTE. Make sure to set LTE always off....and turn it on only when you need it. In my case Spotify was eating up battery life like crazy....and now I force stop Spotify when I'm done using it...

I have HR set to continuous and spo2/snore for sleep measurement, no AOD, raise to wake enabled and usually an hour of fitness with 30mins using GPS.....gives me 40hrs of life

Is there any way to on/off lte in single click, from tiles maybe? Or do we need to go to setting>Connection> Lte every time?

Also in the drop down menu if you click add button "mobile data' will appear, what does it do? Even if we turn it off, cellular icon still appears. I assume it is data only on/off and not calls???

Also for 40 hours backup we need to use some dark watch face right?

    Maybe tizen was always based on Android but with Samsung's edits now they've just taken the skin off it
    Both Wear OS and Tizen are based on Linux kernel.
    History of Tizen goes back to mid 2007 (Moblin) so it's actully slightly older that Android.
