    Has anyone tried the new Samsung Galaxy Watch?

    I recently saw someone on reddit claiming the Galaxy Watch felt like a "nice timepiece" on their wrist, because Samsung designed it to "actually look like a real watch", and "they have the hardware and software that makes them feel real", and it felt "authentic". Well these are some hefty accolades to live up to! Just curious, has anyone else tried it yet?

    Interested to see how their processor compares to the new snapdragon that was just announced.

    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    Yes. I like it better than the Gear S3.

    Slimmer profile than outgoing Gear S3, 2 size choices and the ability to take Standard 20mm straps makes it more wearable and more practical for more people so it will appeal to a wider market.

    The design elements, like the S3, were always based on going for a "standard" watch look and feel.

    It's a progression, not a revolution.

    Some of the other stuff is just marketing gobbledygook however.

    I'll probably get one.

    Re: Has anyone tried the new Samsung Galaxy Watch?

    I'm hanging onto my Gear S2 Classic for that same reason. I have an AOD watchface on it (one with normal watch hands), and a guy sitting next to me in a meeting at work said "I didn't realize that was a smart watch" after I dismissed a call on it. If that's not a ringing endorsement for blending in, I don't know what is.

    I tried it on and have it for preorder(not out in Canada yet), it looks sick and is better than the Apple Watch for many reasons imo. I am most likely getting both so I can take some comparison pictures when I do.

    Re: Has anyone tried the new Samsung Galaxy Watch?

    I am really happy with mine. This is my first smartwatch and it does exactly what I wanted it to do, namely, give me my phone notifications on my wrist so I don't have to take out my phone and unlock it to see if that email or message is urgent or not.



    I also really like being able to swap out watch faces, depending on my mood.





    It does look and feel like a quality watch that is in line with its cost. It doesn't have a distinctive look like a Seiko Tuna, Audemars Piguet or Omega Ploprof, but that is fine. It also doesn't scream "Smart Watch" like the Apple watch or a Fit Bit.

    I like the Seiko face, as well as the double subdial one!

    For the Seiko face, the second hand sweeps and the always on display is a lume display:
