I had a Galaxy a while back - I don't remember what generation - and it was bulky as hell, the battery deteriorated quite a bit considering what they promised and I decided to never bother with smartwatches again.

When this little gem came out, I couldn't resist, and strangely enough, the battery got a bit better over time. My only problem with this little guy is the audio, I find it to be very low volume during a call (non-LTE).

All in all, I'm loving it.

Not a bad effort first attempt but 2nd gen needs better battery life a bigger screen option and the option to increase vibration sensitivity maybe we will see the latter in a os update
The poor vibration is really unforgivable when my previous Huawei Watch 2 had no such issues, why can't the intensity be increased and even a double alert be allowed in the software options. The speaker is also just as bad.

I just got the LTE version...I wake up at 3am and work from 4am-2pm... It's currently 15 degrees here in Colorado... lol :cry: So the face brushes up on the inside of my coat, which tbh protects it. The screen has zero scratches.

I like it a lot...I'm kind of sad there really isn't a lot of function modding to do on a watch, although it is possible to unlock the bootloader.

Regardless, it's made me keep track my my health way more just from steps, heart rate, with fitbit etc.... I like it a lot. :)

    It looks nice, even though I'm not too sure about these bezels and super rounded screen (scratches anyone?).

    Got it for free through the 7 Pro pre-order though so we'll see.

    The price is not helping it.

    I bought a brand-new Pixel Watch LTE for $80 from someone who got it free with his Pixel 7 Pro order. I wouldn't pay $400 for it, but I buy all of my electronics on Craig's List or OfferUp for a fraction of their retail price. This is a great way to try it, and if I don't like it, I can easily sell it for at least what I paid for it (and often more).

    I also have a Galaxy Watch 4, but I actually really like the Pixel Watch---much to my surprise, actually!

    It looks like a normal watch, not like one of those sports watches, which I like. I thought I wouldn't like the bubble design, but I actually really do.

    It's a bit smaller than my 46mm Galaxy Watch 4, but it's big enough. The bezels (so reviled in reviews) don't really bother me.

    The Pixel Watch works very smoothly, and I like how intuitive Wear OS is. I've never really taken to Samsung's Wear OS implementation on their Galaxy Watch 4. In fact, I prefer how the Tizen-powered Galaxy Watch 3 works in many ways.

    I only use my Pixel Watch to tell time and show phone notifications. I don't care about fitness tracking and apps, so I guess I'm just a very basic user, but I do really like how the watch handles those basic tasks. Smooth and intuitive.

    Reviews mention atrocious battery life. We'll see how that pans out. I've only had it for two days. While battery life is definitely not as good as my Galaxy Watch 4 (and 3 for that matter), so far it appears to be fine. I put in on the charger every night anyway, and I've had no problem making it through the day. But then again, my use is very, very light---just time-telling and notifications basically.

    My new Pixel 7 Pro (256 GB) will come in today (could get that through work for a mere $150!). It'll be interesting to see if I like that well enough to get rid of my current Galaxy S22 Ultra. We'll see...
