ساعة ذكية مريحة بالفعل لطيفة ، وأنا أحب الشعور وحجم الساعة مثالية لا كبيرة أو صغيرة. البطارية جيدة أود أن أقول لمدة 2 أيام. الكثير جدا للتخصيص من وجوه ووتش والكثير من التطبيق الجيد أوصي به.
هذه الساعة تعمل تماما مع هاتفي. بعد تجربة العديد من الساعات الذكية التي تعمل بنظام أندرويد ، من الجيد أن تجد واحدة تعمل في الواقع كإعلان. البطارية تستمر لفترة طويلة بين الشحنات.
أنا أحب هذه الساعة! استغرق الأمر إلى الأبد لإنقاذ لذلك مع وظيفتي منخفضة الأجر ، ولكن كان يستحق كل هذا العناء. إنه يعمل بشكل رائع ، ويحكي الوقت كما ينبغي ، ولديه العديد من التطبيقات المختلفة المفيدة ، ويمكنك إضافة المزيد. يكون وجه الساعة قابلاً للتخصيص ، ويكون له وجه صبي من تداعياته الآن. أستخدمه يوميًا ويعطيني عادةً ثلاثة أيام لكل تهمة مقابل مقدار المبلغ الذي أستخدمه. إذا كان لديك مجرة ، فهذه هي الساعة.
بالنسبة للجزء الأكبر ، هذه هي أفضل ساعة من سامسونج. حصلت على ساعات ذكية أخرى بواسطة KW18 وكرهتها ، لكنهم قاموا بالفعل بترقية هذه الساعة. التعرف على الصوت على هذا النوع من تمتص لكنني لا استخدمه كثيرا. ومن المتوقع أن عمر البطارية لساعة ذكية ، أستطيع أن أذهب حوالي 3 أيام دون شحن.
لم يكن لدي سوى بضعة أيام ولكن أنا أحب ذلك. إنه سهل الاستخدام للغاية ، فهو مريح على معصمي ، والهاتف واضح للغاية بالنسبة للساعة الذكية. أحب حقيقة أنه يمكنك شراء وجوه مختلفة للساعة رائع وسهل للغاية القيام به.

I have owned previously the KW18 s7 edge and with it I had the KW18 gear s2 smart watch. At the time I was pleased with both the phone and the watch, but not blown away by the watch. I then had switched to apple for a few years and owned the 7+ and the iPhone X along with the nike Apple Watch series 2. I enjoyed the X but I feel that it didn't truly live up to the hype, however I did grow extremely accustomed to my Apple Watch. I decided to jump ship after reading great reviews about the S9+ and man were they right. Absolutely adore the phone, but then came the problem of needing a new watch. I decided to wait it out a few months knowing that KW18 was going to be releasing their first new watch since the s3. Best decision I've ever made. While I cannot speak for the S3, I can say that the galaxy watch has made me forget about my Apple Watch already. Love the features, the build screams quality and durability and its more masculine in my opinion then the Apple Watch. I did not think I was going to like the silver but I wanted the 46mm instead of the 42mm and I am glad I got it. Its stunning in person, pictures don't do it justice you must see it to truly appreciate it. The black band was nice but not my style, so I purchased an authentic KW18 s3 band in orange/red that easily hooked up to my galaxy watch. Im very pleased with Samsung. I feel that ever since the whole "battery incident" with the note a few years ago, they really stepped it up and are providing a superior product to apple. Thanks KW18 for the great watch.
I've been wanting a smart watch for a while now and finally decided to pull the trigger. My biggest criterion were that it had to be reasonably sized, reasonably priced, have GPS, and be able to have offline maps. I really liked the look of the Gear S3 Frontier and the Galaxy watches (let's be real - the new 42mm Galaxy watch in black is basically the Frontier's little brother), and I LOVE the rotating bezel.I tried out both the S3 Frontier and the Galaxy watch and came to the following conclusions.1) Look - the style of both watches are very similar (which you can see from the product photos).2) Size - the 46mm Frontier watch is obviously larger than the 42mm Galaxy. The watch band on the Frontier is thicker and has a slightly wider style that made it look larger than it actually is. I ended up buying a smaller band similar to the style on the Galaxy to remedy this. For me, the 42mm Galaxy wins on size. The screen was only slightly smaller, but the watch as a whole was much smaller (as you can see from my comparison pictures). The thickness of the two watches is about the same.3) Rotating Bezel - I found the bezel on the Frontier was easier for me to use. It's slightly taller than the one on the Galaxy, and the notches on the side are bigger. The Galaxy bezel fit into the face of the watch a bit more smoothly, so you have to rotate it from the top of the watch, whereas on the Frontier you can rotate it from the side or top.4) Navigation - navigation through the different widgets and apps was very intuitive on both watches. You can use the bezel or touchscreen to move through items, and the two buttons on the side to select and navigate.5) Maps - ultimately this was the item that tipped the scale in favor of the Frontier for me. There's an app you can download called HERE WeGo which provides directions from your location to your destination. Very similar to how Google Maps works. However, it also supports an offline functionality where you can download maps of an area (state / province / etc.) so you have them available without being connected to your phone. The downside to this is that it doesn't have a satellite or topographic view, but I tested it out locally and the trails I took were all on there. So if I go hiking somewhere and get lost, I have a general idea of where I am - I can see it on the map. When I tested HERE WeGo on the new Galaxy watch it doesn't function unless you're connected to the phone, because you can't download offline maps to the Galaxy. I checked with their support team and they said they will consider it for the future (but that doesn't help me now).Ultimately I ended up keeping the S3 Frontier and returning the Galaxy. The Galaxy won on size and waterproof rating, but I just couldn't justify spending almost double on the Galaxy when it wouldn't meet one of my biggest criterion (the offline maps). It's no Suunto or Garmin or Casio, but for the price point it meets my needs as a GPS watch.
I waited a few weeks before writing this review having ample time to write my thoughts about my experience with the KW18 Watch. I'll breakdown the review into multiple key points and share my thoughts and experiences and shortcomings if any.1.)Battery - Probably the most important thing everyone wants to know about before making their purchase! As always your mileage will vary here based off of multiple factors like:notifications how many received and how often updates are pushed, screen brightness, if you use always on display or not, GPS etc the list really goes on. Based off of my personal usage pattern and with the following settings:out of the box default, 4-5 on screen brightness, a healthy amount of notifications from Hangouts, WhatsApp, text, Gmail, Allo etc, workouts with GPS/an exercise selected. I found myself charging every 2.5-3 days and I generally charge my watch once it hits 15-20% battery life so I could possibly squeeze another half to full day! I give the battery life a rating of 8/10.2.) Durability - So far with working out at the gym, daily life and sleeping with the device I do not see any scratches or visible marks on the body of the watch the clasp has a small scratch only visible in direct light so no big deal. As for the display while I'm sure it's durable I opted for a tempered glass protector as I am OCD about seeing scratches of any kind on my displays. But so far I would say the Galaxy Watch is extremely durable 10/10!3.) Software - I personally am not too fond of Tizen OS and am particularly and not fond of Bixby especially when compared to Google Assistant. I used to take Google Assistant for granted but after using Bixby a few times I find myself with a new found appreciate for my Google Assistant. The voice to text is noticeably slower, more words are missed, everything you ask of Bixby seems to be slower and Bixby cannot do as much at this time. Hopefully this will improve with time! I highly doubt Bixby will ever reach Google Assistant levels, but hopefully KW18 improves the speed and functionality. The amount of apps pale in comparison to WearOS at this time and doesn't have a lot of the major Android apps that one would want to use. KW18 adds a lot of unnecessary animations that slow things down sadly. Prime offender is when you look at a notification on the watch it takes a few moments before the notification is displayed (just nit picking here not a deal breaker). The fitness tracking is excellent and does a good job of tracking your workouts from calories burned to distance ran/rode etc. Only thing that I notice the software or possibly a hardware limitation? Is when you're tracking your heart rate during high intensity training the watch sometimes has issues keeping up and will take a few moments to display your current heart rate. But overall I would say the heart rate is accurate and comparable to a chest strap monitor under regular usage and non high intensity workouts. But overall the Galaxy Watch does offer a pleasant software experience 7/10.4.) Aesthetics - I have the 46mm version and "gorgeous" is an understatement here. Even with the default silicone band the watch looks fantastic and exudes class. The larger form factor, the teeth on the rotating bezel, the satisfying clicking the rotating bezel makes and the markings in the inner bezel further compliment the elegance factor of the watch. Also how the silver contrasts with the darker colors perfectly. Even the home and back button add to the overall beauty of this watch! KW18 seems to understand if it's not broken don't fix it when it comes to aesthetics. A way to summarize is "beauty in simplicity" 10/10!If you're looking for a fantastic watch with solid performance and a solid software experience your search is over! At this point you should be adding this watch to your cart and hitting buy! If you're still on the wall and want to give Wear OS another chance with the recent overall and the "new" processor and hardware and can afford to wait another month or so I'd say wait to see some reviews. I personally don't have hope in the Qualcomm 3100 and the coprocessor since the 3100 is an old CPU from 2015 w/ the Adreno 304 GPU (the same one in the Qualcomm 2100 that powers the majority of Wear OS devices). To me it seems as the 3100 + coprocessor was made to appease the fashion brands with the new and improved always on watch displays to make them look "prettier". It's understandable since the fashion brands essentially have been keeping Wear OS alive. I'm always for competition so I hope Qualcomm steps up their game and innovate and build an entire SoC from the ground up vs using some rehashed archaic SoC that is years old. Thanks for reading and hope this helps you with your purchase decision!
I absolutely love this KW18 Watch. It paired seamlessly with my new Galaxy Note 9. Setup too no time. As soon as I turned the watch on, my phone lit up saying it detected a watch needing setup.I have used many smart watches and fitness trackers. I currently have a FitBit Versa and Charge HR, and an Apple Watch Series 3 + Cellular. This Galaxy Watch takes the cake. It does everything the rest do, and then some. The model I have is not cellular, however within bluetooth range you can make calls and text through it. The battery life lasts DAYS, which is a MAJOR difference between this and my Apple Watch which was my old favorite. The Apple Watch lasts a day and a half at best, which becomes irritating having to charge so frequently.Something else this does that the Apple Watch and FitBit do not, is a altimeter and barometer. This little touch is fun to play with, and could be especially useful when on a hike.The KW18 Health app that pairs with the Galaxy Watch is one of the best fitness and health apps I've used. It aggregates all of the information into one easy to read location. It will show you your steps, your average heart rate, and your minutes active. If you wear it to sleep it will track your sleep patterns and break it down into sleep time and break it down into light sleep, deep sleep and time awake, which is extremely handy.It also supports KW18 Pay, so you can leave your wallet in the car or at home and stop somewhere to pick up a snack/drink while out and about. I find this useful when I go on a jog, so I don't have to take anything extra with me.I highly recommend this watch. It's stylish, and offers far more features than the competition!
I love this watch. It's beautiful as well. I've had all of the gear s watches and the galaxy watch is definitely worth the upgrade if you're looking for a more feminine piece. Yes, I miss MST but I have the note 8 and I can just use my phone. It's not a big deal. Bixby, when it works, is also a nice touch. The new exercise tools are also great.
For a smaller guy as myself (5'9") I find the 42mm a great fit. The wake up gesture works great and I find the activity tracking works very well. I am not sleep expert, but the watch does seem to know exactly when I go to sleep and wake up. Not sure if I will even care in the coming weeks. but pretty neat at the moment.However, I have a few minor issues I don't like and perhaps I will overcome them as I get more familiar with the watch.Text messagesI have a KW18 S8 and if I read my text messages on my watch, my phone does not mark the message as ready. I am using Google messages, so maybe its not compatible. But in my 2015 car I can read the message on the infotainment center and it gets acknowledged. Its not too big of a deal, but in my opinion, it kinda of defeats the purpose of using your watch.NotificationsI have disabled most of the notifications I don't want to see. But I have not figured out how to disable the daily briefings, or when my phone is out of range (it vibrates) or some various other apps on the phone.Goodnight modeI love the goodnight mode feature. It seems to recognize when its getting close to bedtime, giving you the option to enable or suspend. But it does not always recognize when I get up. I find half the time I have to turn it off.Battery lifeI know the 42 has the smaller battery, but I am a little disappointed with the life so far. I have gotten close to two days of use before needing to recharge. My expectation was 3 full days. Of course I find myself messing with it often. Hopefully, the life will improve as I scale back my usage.
I have been on a constant search for the perfect wearable. I have had and used the Gear S2 & S3, several Wear OS watches, the apple watch series 2, the Garmin Fenix line and the fitbit Ionic. Every one of these was lacking in one way or another. The Galaxy Watch is the most complete, stylish and comfortable smartwatch I have had to date, and I am very impressed with the total package.The stock photos don't do the watch justice. It looks very striking in person and I think looks better than most of my actual watches. The weight has been drastically reduced from the Gear S3 and I can definitely feel the difference. The result is a MUCH more comfortable watch that I can run, shower, swim and sleep in, while still remaining durable enough to take a beating. The craftsmanship is really top-notch.The battery life has been marginally improved to the point that you won't have to worry about it for a few days. Heavy use for me has been about 30% per day, which is okay, but definitely not as good as my Garmin. The included wireless charger makes charging up painless, however, and it's moderately fast (100% in ~ 70 min.).Fitness and sleep tracking features have clearly been a big focus for KW18 and their fitness app has become my preferred tracker for it's wide catalog of workouts and it's simplicity of readout. Finally, the inclusion of a spotify app that enables you to download your playlists for offline play puts this watch over the top with respect to other wearables. For me, this added functionality means I don't have to bring my phone along for a workout, nor do I have to connect my watch to a laptop and upload music manually. Huge win there.Overall this watch has been a joy to use.
My only complaint because I absolutely LOVEEE MY WATCH. Is that the battery life I thought is supposed to last up to 3 days but with a full charge I get a day with it. So not sure how they can say it lasts for 3 days. Not very happy about that. Maybe if you have it on watch only and disable everything else running I. The background as far as apps. You could possibly get the 3 days. Other than that it lasts for 1 Day!
This is my first smartwatch. So far, I really like it. It was a quick and easy setup. I just wish it was a bit thinner. There aren't that many apps. Fingers crossed more come out!
I bought the smaller, 42mm, version of this watch and received it yesterday (4 days after ordering).FIRST IMPRESSION:The watch looks great and is actually the exact same size as the analog watch that I've worn for years, albeit a tad thicker. I was worried that the 46mm version would be too big on my wrist, and, based on how this one looks on my wrist, I was right. To give you an idea of how big my wrist is, this watch has two holes left on the band once worn at a comfortable tightness. (The watch also comes with another band that has more holes for a larger wrist). The rubber band that comes with the watch is minimalist and looks fine, but I wanted something a little more classy, so I ordered a brown leather band to spruce up the looks (it should be delivered next week). Also, you can see from my picture on the underside of the watch that it is super easy to switch bands using the little toggle switches. I like that this watch doesn't look like a smartwatch at first glance. It really does look like a regular analog watch.EASE OF USE: I was able to jump right in and start using this watch with no issues. It took me about 45 minutes to set everything up, including downloading the apps for my phone, signing in to my accounts, and tweaking all of the settings to my liking. The rotating bezel makes it super easy to navigate around the menus, and the touchscreen is very responsive to swipes and taps. The screen looks great and is very clear and bright. I have my brightness set on 7, and it is perfect for being outside in the daylight or indoors. This 42mm version might be a tad too small of a screen for some, but it is just right for me. The battery took about an hour to fully charge, and it was on 25% when I received it, so I would guess 1 hour and 20 minutes to full charge from zero.DAY 1 BATTERY and USAGE IMPRESSIONS:I put the watch on at about 7 pm on day 1 and was messing with it most of the night, switching watch faces and exploring the options and tweaking settings. I then set it to Goodnight Mode (to turn off all notifications except alarm), and set it to track my sleep. The alarm vibrates and makes a sound. I'm not sure if the sound can be turned off...if so, I haven't figured out how. I'm a fairly heavy sleeper, and it was enough to wake me up. Also, the snooze option worked and was easy to do half-asleep. As I'm writing this, the watch has been on my wrist for about 19hrs, and it is at 72%. At this rate, I'll be able to get about 3 days of use, which is what the literature claims.TIZEN & APPS:I was worried that I wouldn't like the fact that the Tizen OS doesn't allow you to download 3rd party apps, and this IS a huge shortcoming for the watch. However, I have my phone on me all day, so there's really nothing I would want my watch to do that I wouldn't be fine with reaching into my pocket and pulling out my phone for. Anything else added to the watch (as far as apps) would be gimmicky and just extra. The main thing for me is that it DOES work with most third-party apps as far as notifications. My main concern was that I wouldn't be able to get text notifications because I use Textra for texting on my phone. But I was able to set the watch to get notifications from Textra, and when tested I was able to respond to the text using my watch. The KW18 app store is a joke, and 99% of the apps on there don't work at all. That was a huge disappointment.SPOTIFY NEGATIVE:I was excited to get to use Spotify on the watch with Bluetooth headphones. BUT, the Spotify streaming service only works on the watch if you have a Premium account, which I do not. So, there's that.PROS:-Looks great, classy (with a better band), and looks just like an analog watch.-Easy to use:The bezel, buttons, and menus all work together flawlessly.-Easy-to-replace bands. Plus, you can find a ton of bands online for fairly cheap.-Answering calls (and talking) is easy and clear and eliminates the need to pull your phone out (given that you're in an area where you can just talk aloud on speaker.)-KW18 Health works great at tracking steps, calories, etc, and the app also offers a lot of options for exercise programs and workout ideas, which is great for someone like me who is moderately active and needs a little push and assistance to get moving.CONS:-Tizen has limits as far as 3rd party app support, and the KW18 store is laughable, but you can still get notifications from most 3rd party apps.-While there are lots of options for watch faces, there's only a small amount of free ones that are decent. Most of them will cost you $2-$4.-Pricepoint is a little high. I was able to use my Health Savings Account card to purchase this watch due to having Type 1 Diabetes and getting my doctor to sign a paper saying the fitness aspect would help regulate my blood sugar, but if I wasn't able to do that I probably wouldn't have bought this watch because of the price.
Great watch!Does everything I need it to. It's kinda sad that people have to write a review and give a product a 1 star just because it doesnt have the one feature they want. This watch is much much more than just a MSTfor paying with. Just use your phone or your wallet with your actual debit card. You should have those things anyways when you are out and about. Not the watch's fault, it's yours as a person.
I came from a galaxy gear s2, unfortunately i lost the watch one day and decided to get this new version. This watch is what the s2 is but better, faster, and actually more usefull because of the gps and the speaker on it. What i loved about the s2 is that it was handy; i used the timer, the alarm, the heart rate monitor, back/next for music, basically little things/apps that were right there conveniently on my wrist. Now on this new version The gps on it can track my location and the speaker can announce information during my runs; handy stuff. Even though the apps on the appstore are 90% useless, the ones that are useful are AMAZING. To me a smartwatch is 1st a watch and second a piece of gear that SUPPLEMENTS your phone. I dont need to play games on my watch, look at pictures, watch youtube, and surf the internet from my watch; to me thats stupid. What i do need are little apps that help me get through the day rather than pulling out my phone which would actually be more time consuming; this watch is GREAT at doing that. If you want a handy piece of gear that can supplement your phone, this watch is awesome
I switched from a Fitbit, partly because I wanted a watch that looked round, not square. Worked fine with my apple phone (though I switched to a galaxy phone a week later because I wanted to keep my audio jack). Of note, you can't do quick replies on apple. And only free watch faces on apple (though that still left at least hundreds to choose from). No connectivity or dropped connections noted with the apple for me.I get 3 days with continuous heart rate monitoring and 24 hrs/day wear and always on display (display is an analog watch face with 7 variables consistently updated like steps, hr, and time). Though it depends on watch face - a previous face with same settings have me 2 days. It does take a good 2-3 hours to charge from under 5%.I felt the watch was easy to use, and very much appreciate the rotating bezel. Being able to select items specifically without poking at small objects with my fingers is rather nice.Watch bands are plentiful and easy to change (compared to traditional watches I've owned. Still are small pieces though). Personally don't like the plastic band that came with the watch, but the leather one and metal one I got are both very comfortable.Bixbie works fine for me, though I dont really use any of the voice programs of any type to compare. And I have all the programs I care to on the watch (a clock, timer, weather, and health apps are all I use anyways).I have not had a scratch on the watch yet, though I don't do too much manual labor to bang it up. And I have no wireless capability because I didn't want to pay for that extra when I have my phone with me all the time anyways.I am very happy with my purchase.
I like it. No issues so far. Thousands of watch faces to choose from. Neat gadget. The band it comes with is sooo ugly so i swapped it out asap with a 20mm band.

I have had many smart watches - all of them Android Wear. This is my first venture into the KW18 Tizen area and I am blown away!The watch delivers all that I have wanted from a Wear device and more. The bezel functionality should be a standard across all wearable devices IMO as it makes it so easy to navigate notifications, widgets etc. Perhaps the only drawback with this watch is the application ecosystem- the lack of applications but, as I have everything I need, I am a convert!
This is my first smartwatch, and I bought it more to test it out. I really wasn't sure I was going to keep it, but after using it for about a month, I can say this will stay on my wrist daily. The watch looks great. I am glad I got the 42mm as the black on black is really sleek. It makes my fiends iWatch look like a toy. The screen is very clear and easy to see even outside. I leave it set to brightness level of "6" and it adjusts for me when needed. The watch faces are very cool, and there are literally thousands you can get, and many are free. You can make this look like a fancy watch, a Casio, a gadget, tactical, and everything in between. Really a fantastic looking watch.For battery life, I average 3 days. My first two charges didn't last as long, and I was a little worried. But now I get three days with room to spare. I do not sleep with it. I put in airplane mode at night. It is on my wrist and in use for 12-18 hours a day. I have Wifi off, and location off because my Note 9 handles all that through Bluetooth. I only have it monitor my heartrate when I am doing an exercise. I take calls on it regularly, check email and texts, and use it for fitness. I would say I am a moderate user.I love the built in altimeter and barometer, and found them to be reasonably accurate. I also found the step tracking to be fairly accurate as well, though it does miss some steps here and there. Sometimes it is simply delayed. Tizen OS is smooth and easy to use, but there are not a lot of apps yet in the KW18 universe. There are way behind Google and Apple in this respect. I hope they keep updating their apps to better more useful ones, because right now, they are not that great.Overall I love this watch. I am very happy I decided to try this out. It really does make me think how I lived without one for so long.
I have had this watch now for only 2 days. I'm still learning to work the interface.Pros:The design since similar to the previous generation which is one of the features that I love most. Love the Super AMOLED display. Love that it's 5 ATM + IP68 / MIL-STD-810G compared to old generations. Not worrying about swimming or shower is great.Con:The only issue I currently have with it is replying using their handwriting recognition software. I have had it understand 1 and | for l and 0 and O for o. I have had to continue to write and hope it understands what I'm trying to write or delete it and try to write it again.That is what I have for now. Will keep you updated.
I've been using KW18 trackers for years (gear1, gear2) and finally decided to go with a fitness tracker that looks more like a watch and I am not disappointed with the 42mm rose galaxy watch. The step and sleep tracker is great and I really like the fact that I can take quick phone calls via the watch instead of digging through my purse to get to my phone. I am also pleased that I can use this to track my swimming unlike my two predecessors. I am very pleased with this purchase.There are plenty of watch faces to choose from if you don't like the standard face on the play store.After I turned off most of the notifications and the auto pulse as well as other auto functions that I don't use and my battery lasts approximately 2.5 days.I would prefer that the charging would be faster than the 2+ hours but I can live with that.Overall I am pleased with this purchase
watch is exactly what I expected. beautiful to look at and use. the only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because Bixby is complete garbage, also I live in Canada and my debit card is not compatible with KW18 pay in the gear app.
As a smart watch I think it's good, battery life easy 2 days plus, esthetically beautiful but still not worth 300+ price for supplied features. Dial ring feels fragile but it's working flawlessly. It will need couple years for smart watches to evolve. One warning though, carefully inspect your watch if you're buying it from Ecross warehouse. I had to return 2 of them because there was no KW18 pay preinstalled as it should be on US version and serial numbers didn't match (package box and actual watch inside). Third looks like lucky charm. We'll see how it will hold up in couple of weeks
Take my advice and remove KW18 gear app phone first before connecting to phone. The new galaxy wearable app will not allow some apps on phone to work if old app on phone. Had to call KW18 and KW18 pay for this to be resolved.
This watch growth on me. First day I wanted to give it 3 stars, second day I started to kind of like it, and from third day I am mostly loving it.Pros:* First non-Apple non-gigantic smartwatch that fits OK on my somewhat small wrist.* Easy to disable all unnecessary notifications and make the watch unintrusive* User interface seems very optimized. You don't need to do many clicks to get where you need. For me 95% of my needs are met on two screens - the watch face and swipe to the right for weather. That's it.* Love the choice of watch faces and that you can fit time, fitness and weather (with some limitations) on one screen* Fitness functions seem to work fine. Nice to be able to see your your speed and route on the map when you bike.Neutral* Battery lasts reliably two days. It can probably do 2.5 days total. Kind of same as the 1st gen Apple watch I had some years back.Cons / to improve:* Making it thinner would be nice. It is still a brick on your hand. Although for the fairness KW18 made it fairly elegant, but didn't do as good of a job of hiding thickness as apple did.* Custom watch faces do not seem to include weather. I suspect some API limitations making weather unavailable to 3rd party developers.* I wish some watch faces included not just current temperature, but also high and low for the day.* Bixby speaks in a ridiculous computer voice, which no longer feels normal in the age of Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant, but is otherwise functional (e.g. I found it to be the simplest way to start timer when I do meditation).I hope many further improvements will come via software updates.

Appearance:This watch looks great, silver shiny metal casing, nice metal bezel in black, the default bank is a black rubber, looks good as well. The big 46mm face looks awesome to the user and people that see you wearing it, the faces are bright and vibrant and there are many great ones both digital and analog looks and many funny cartoon ones as well. You can also make your own custom faces on the KW18 site too. With the ways you can customize case, bands and bezel, its the best looking smart watch on the market to me.Functionality:This watch uses a custom KW18 app store and uses the Tizen OS instead of the more standard Google app store and Wear OS that most other android watches use. That is not a problem when it comes to watches like this one though as you can make calls, receive calls, take and write texts, receive and write e-mails, you can get driving directions with a map app, there is a web browser that works well, heart rate monitor, sleep monitor, exercise apps, you can watch youtube videos and it looks great, you can get notifications form all social media sites, and much more, this watch can do pretty much anything you want in a smart watch, excellent. This watch is waterproof, you can swim with it, take a shower with and dive with it. The battery life is very good IMO on this 46mm model, I am getting 3-4 days out of it and I use it for heavy tasks like calls and video along with maps too. It is very easy to charge with the included wireless charging stand too. The only downside is that if you are not using one of the newer KW18 phones you need to do a few workarounds to get texts to work properly. I was not using a KW18 phone and can report I am still extremely impressed by the functionality.Expandability:There are hundreds of watch cases, bezels and watch bands(leather, rubber and metal/steel) that you can buy for a low fee to customize the entire look of this watch. You will not be disappointed at all in this department, nice looks for male and female users and all kinds of funny prints and also professional looks that can make the watch look almost like a rolex, no joke form a distance.Overall:This is the best smart watch you can get in 2019 IMO when comparing it to watches I have tried out, seen in stores and I also read many reviews form watch/tech sites and many agree with this opinion. The only cons are that some functions that have to do with texting and e-mail do not work out of the box for non-KW18 phone users. You need to download some 3rd party apps to get that up to par. The pros heavily outweigh those slight flaws though, so I recommend this watch to anybody looking for a smart watch this year.Score:9.5/10 This watch does everything I dreamed of a smart watch being able to do & more. The only slight flaw is that if you are not using a non-KW18 brand phone or older KW18 phone you probably will have to do a little extra to get it to properly handle e-mails & texts(download a few extra apps), but other than that is does everything at top notch out of the box and I love it!
I wanted to wait a while before reviewing this watch, so here I am now.An important note, I have a KW18 Note 8. Having an appropriate KW18 phone does enhance the experience of this watch.Pros-Long battery life for general use (time, passive tracking, etc.) - can last 3 to 5 days that way-Water resistant - swimming, showering, and even hot tub use is fine-Durable - I'm clumsy, I bang this into stuff all the time and even when I didn't have a glass screen cover put on I did not break the glass. I have minor scuffed the metal a bit but it's not noticeable.-Wireless charging is convenient and easy-KW18 Health app integration; makes it easy to track multiple parts in KW18 Health such as water & caffeine intake, automatic walk tracking, and you can select exercises on the watch to start tracking heart rate & related info-Workout Trainer works really well with the watch as well. I can select a workout trainer workout, launch the app on my watch and it will vibrate to let me know when it's time to switch to another exercise and track heart rate data into KW18 Health app.-Custom watch faces. Countless options for custom watch faces, I have been using a Fallout Pipboy watch face that has menu buttons that will take me to different parts of the watch.-Tracks basic sleep data. I don't need anything fancy for this, I just like that it shows me how long I was in bed and a general breakdown of awake, REM, light and deep sleep.Cons-Short battery life if you forget to close apps like Workout Trainer. Would be nice if it would auto-kill apps under certain conditions. For Workout Trainer, maybe after 5 minutes of not being connected to the app on the phone/no workout in progress.-Notch options in silicone watch strap are spaced in such a way that I either have the watch too tight or a little too loose. The "too tight" will cause me issues when I sleep with it.-It's easy for it to not get your heart rate when sleeping and give less info on your sleep as a result.-It's also easy for you to loose your heart rate tracking if you get really sweaty during workouts as that will mess with the sensor. Sometimes just moving watch back and forth on your skin will fix, other times you have to take it off and wipe it down.I think I covered most everything. Even though I do have some cons, overall I enjoy this product and would buy it again if I lost this one.
I've owned the Huawei watch 1 for several years so up until this point had nothing to compare it to. I thought that watch was great with good battery and quick response. Now that I've tried the Galaxy watch I realize how much better things have gotten. When always on is turned off I finish the day around 80% battery. That up at 5:30am and to bed by 111:00. I have the 42 mm version that has a smaller battery. With the Huawei watch I'd get maybe a day. I really did not want to turn off the always on because on the Huawei I had to shake my hand to get it to turn the display back on. Not so with the Galaxy. The screen activates every time. I was also concerned about lack of Google Wear OS. That hasn't been an issue at all. Granted I use this watch to monitor steps, sleep, tell time, and look cool. The waterproof feature was a big seller to me as well. And the readability outdoors blows the Huawei out of the water. I am seriously enjoying this watch. Couple that will the cool dial interface and you got a winner in my book.
This watch is really good, but missing a few things that KW18 will probably never get around to fixing.First, replying to messages is sometimes buggy. sometimes it will say sent, but the message didn't even go thru, sometimes it fails for no reason.Second, they need the same app store as Wear OS. I get that this runs Tizen OS, but there is a severe lack of apps. At least put the popular ones on the watch, like Google pay, Uber, etc.Third, they need to improve the fitness tracking, sometimes it is horribly inaccurate recording steps, and the BMR calorie counting is really odd sometimes.If KW18 fixed these issues (aka listened to the customers), this would be a near perfect watch.
Just so you know...the seller advertises this as a "US Warranty version" that is not the case...I went to the KW18 web site to register my watch and it wouldn't recognize the serial #...so I got on the phone w/ KW18 customer service...they found the serial # in their system...BUT it was manufactured in South America, therefore NO warranty...the writing on the outside of the box is in Spanish...just BEWARE...also there were 2 other UPC stickers w/ serial #'s over the original...if you don't care about a warranty...carry-on...if you do...buy elsewhere...it's still a very good watch...works mostly great...which is why I gave 5 stars...
I bought this to replace my GearFit2 Pro. I'm very surprised at how much I love it. I've always been the type of person that was like "I can just take my phone out of my pocket and read a notification, or see who is calling." Well that mindset changed a lot for me when I got the GearFit2 Pro to replace a Sony SmartBand I had.Now that I have the Galaxy Watch I'm even more of a fan of having the notifications on my wrist. I can even take a call from my wrist instead of having to pull my phone out. It honestly makes life a little easier.The battery life on mine is pretty good considering I have heart rate and stress monitoring on continuously. It last me about 2 full days.I have a screen protector on my and I still haven't had to replace that. It doesn't seem to get beat up as much as you would think it would on your wrist.I haven't had any issues with the buttons or the rotating bezel. I shower with it daily (unless it's on the charger). I haven't had any issues with it getting laggy or any other common issues I've heard about.The step tracking seems to be on par with any other tracker I've used. The floor tracking however is far from perfect. I usually don't trust it by any means.I replaced my stock band with a different band. It was easy and quick.Overall I would recommend this smart watch. I'm even of thinking about buying a second for my fiance.
I really like this watch. KW18 Pay and the Cell Phone function work flawlessly. I don't try to use Bixby except for texting hands free. Bixby is awful to say the least and the dumb version on the watch is not good - BUT - it does (mostly) work with the hands free texting and cell phone features so I guess that's what's important. I don't need or use a SIRI/Google Assistant type feature much. The fitness features are mostly ignored by me. I use the heart monitor and that's about it. Battery life has been great. I usually get down to 75-80% after a day. So that's wonderful. I run with watch face on all the time with Bluetooth and wireless 24/7 and no great battery drain that I can detect. My MAIN gripe is that the wake-up gesture is buggy. It's hit and mostly miss all day. Whenever they release an update it seems to work perfectly for a while but it doesn't last. I understand that there is a flaw that KW18 is aware of but the recommended fix of reverting to factory specs and then restoring from the app seems a bad fix. That's why I rated it 4 vice 5 stars .The Heart Rate monitor is wildly off. sitting in the doctor's office yesterday. He got 55 and the watch was saying 78!It's been running 75 to 90 and I was getting worried. It's the buggy watch! With the full time on watch face the wakeup gesture works well. When face is not full time on it��s hit and miss.
What can I say, I love my KW18 SMartwatch. The watch lasts me approximately 3-4 days before needing to be charged. The apps are fine for what I need and use. To be fair though the Android Wear is supposed to have more apps. I love the twisty bezel to navigate all the functions. It is one of the reasons I bought this version instead of the Galaxy Active. It has all the fitness tracking I needs. The voice recognition works very well for me as well. I can narrate a text to someone pretty easily. The one thing I haven't tried yet is the handwriting recognition. It looks a bit difficult. Be aware the screen is decent for a watch, but it can be hard to use the touchscreen, because of the size. Especially if you have big old sausage fingers. But that is where the twisting bezel comes in so handy.
This watch is amazing, I have never had a watch before so this is my first but you can do so much with it. Measure your stress levels quite accurately, be able to see how long/well you sleep, calories, steps, and lots lots more in regards to health/calories/fitness. I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of navigating throughout the watch and it is quite nice to have it connected with my phone so when I get a text it pops up on my watch and I can quickly see who sent what and reply if needed. There are SO many faces available that you can choose from, I saw one from Fallout and it looked pretty awesome so I used that but there are literally hundreds of them. In terms of battery life it is not that great around two days maximum, but that's not necessarily bad unless you are constantly using your watch for fitness which tends to drain the battery quite fast. On an average of use it has gone from 100 to 70% with me, so technically speaking if you don't plan on using this so much for fitness tracking it can last up to 3 days without charging. The KW18 Pay feature is great as well I have both of my cards on there and if I need to pay I just put my wrist next to the credit card scanner machine and press pay. You can also download/play music on it or control the music on your phone, useful is you have headphones on and don't want to take your phone out and just scroll through quickly on your watch to the wanted song. All in all, definitely worth it this watch is awesome.
Samsung, thank you for making a watch that looks like a watch but provides all the bells and whistles I could want!This is my first "smart" watch, but I did my research and was really thrilled to see that KW18 was now selling a watch that would pair with my Android phone!Speaking of pairing, that was SO easy!I was worried about battery life, but honestly, I have not had it die on me yet (I do not wear it at night though and leave it sitting on the charger).The 42mm is the right size for my wrist (I am not sure most women would be happy with the larger size). At times, this size may shift during the day, depending on my activity level. But no real issues.And when I talk to people on the watch vs the phone, they cannot tell a difference (event tested it outside).Cannot recommend it enough!

The only other smart watch I owned before this one was the Huawei Watch 2. It worked great especially running on Google's software. I liked most things about the Huawei Watch 2 except the battery life, the fact that it's a Chinese product and the overly raised bezel which sometimes made it difficult to easily use certain functions on the screen unless you had dainty fingers. So I wanted to get a watch that had a lower bezel and an easily navigable screen. I like this watch a lot for the reasons of the rotating bezel, and easy edge to edge access of the screen. The only 2 disappointments to this watch is that, unlike the Google OS Huawei Watch 2 the Galaxy Watch runs its own OS which is the Tizen OS and therefore does not have a swipe keyboard. The keyboard that the Galaxy Watch uses is not as quick or easy to use. Not difficult once the user gets used to it, but it still would be nice to have a swipe keyboard. Than don't even get me started on Bixby, which would be great if it worked well, but it is more of a hindrance than an assistant. Maybe we have been spoiled by Google's accuracy and intuitiveness, because I have had no problems operating the Huawei Watch 2 with Google. It always understood me perfectly and it was very accurate in picking up what I said and what I wanted it to do. Not so with Bixby. Half the time it doesn't understand me, the other half it doesn't do what I ask it to, and the few times when it does, it processes the command very slowly. With Google, using my voice, I was easily able to through the watch, dial contacts, send text messages, send emails check the weather, etc. Now with Bixby I get so frustrated with it not doing what I ask it to, or not understanding me that I just end up grabbing my phone to do all those things. Not having to grab the phone all the time was one of the reasons that I have gotten a smart watch in the first place. Otherwise all the other features work perfectly on the watch and in spite of its shortcomings I still do love the Galaxy Watch, and at least it's not a Chinese company's product.
I absolutely love my watch. I am reviewing the 46mm Galaxy, I own the KW18 Note 9 so the paring was seamless and the app works amazingly. All the health and fitness features not only work very well but are also extremely accurate. I used hospital equipment to measure how accurate this watch was and was blown away!The battery life is also very good for how big and bright the screen is. I haven't tested the water resistance yet and honestly do not plan to, I'm weird about my electronics and water. Speaker is surprisingly loud and clear for music and ringtones. I bought a separate band so am not able to rate the band it came with but I can tell you in the box it did come with a Large and Small band with very simple "quick" pins for easy removal and installation.

The Galaxy 46mm paired quickly with my Note 9, and phone notifications are easy to set with Galaxy Wear. The watch is very stylish and confortable on the wrist. I like the heart rate monitor, the fitness reminders are annoying and (so far) have resisted my shut them off. Very happy with my purchase and expect many years of use for my Note 9 and Galaxy Smart Watch.I have HuskeyDEV watch face (ported over from my previous smart phone) tied to WearOS, that don't see the Galaxy Smart Watch. There are no HuskyDEV watch faces in the Galaxy Store. There are numerous compatible watch faces in Galaxy Store. Haven't found digital watch face that shows the watch and phone battery levels.
This smartwatch is by far the best I have ever used, I have the galaxy s9 and this works perfectly with it. The heart rate is accurate, the battery is great even though I got the 42mm version it could last me 2-3 days, it looks great, and you can customize it any way you want, it is extremely durable and is much better than i thought it was. And a tip, if the bezel looks scratched take a wet rag and wipe it and it will most likely go away and look new again. Another tip, if it starts to be slow and lag quite a bit then just hold the home button and turn it off. I wear this watch every day and use it all the time, and I still get compliments from people about it. If your thinking about getting this watch, GET IT it is worth the money.
Great display, no longer have to press a button to make watchface light up like non-smart watches do.the health stuff is great feature and joggers get good idea where target heart rate is. The exercise feature is worthless though, this stuff could be removed to free up space, it��s pretty inaccurate.most people need bpm and stress level.i find the stress monitor accurate, when I��m stressed it shows!Edit:the sleep tracking really works, I lift weights early morning and take a nap when I��m finished, it breaks it down into regular, deep and rem level sleep.it feels very accurate, almost shocking how spot on the galaxy is.
I'm actually impressed with this watch, it feels comfortable on my wrist, it has a nicely sized screen and the bezel makes navig as ting it that much easier and faster, it can play music, there are tons of watch faces to choose from on the store.My only dislike is that I cannot get this to connect to LTE through at&t but I cant subtract this from the rating. This is strictly a bluetooth only version of this watch, the LTE compatible versions have 805 for us and 815 for international in their product id.I asked about whether or not it was able to be set up before I purchased this watch but I never got a response and I purchased the product anyways. So I'm gonna leave this review to let others know.
I love this watch it's fast and effective a few things I don't like are:1) I cannot respond to a text message I have to actively go into my contacts, find the contact and then select them and choose to send a new message.2) The battery is at 40 something percent by the end of my clinical day, I do have a fancy watch face I downloaded (it's animated) but I don't have "always on" on.Those are my main complaints, however, I do not mind charging my watch every night, I do not use it to track sleep. I love that I can anser calls and the mic is loud enough for me. it's odd but if it's not connected to my phone (ie I'm too far away from my phone) I can't answer calls but I can respond to the call with a text message...It has made it so I can have my phone close to me but not seen, it is a seriously awesome piece of tech and I'm sure everyone has their pros and cons but I'm very happy with this watch!
What a great watch! I used a Huawei watch for 2 years, then briefly switched to a Tic Watch pro, but Android Wear is just too sluggish in its current form. When I bought a Galaxy s10 I figured I would go all-in with Samsung's ecosystem and I am glad I did. The Galaxy Watch is a fantastic companion to my s10. It syncs effortlessly and integrates better than my Wear Watch did with my Pixel phone. If you have a KW18 phone you should definitely get this watch.Even with the dual screens on my Tic Watch, I was still only able to get 1 day of usage from that watch, which meant no sleep tracking. With the Galaxy Watch, I get 2+ days of operation while using it normally. Now I can get my sleep tracking like I want. Plus, the Galaxy watch automatically detects my workouts so I don't have to remember to set it to measure my walks, runs, etc.The battery life is not as long as some other watches that are out right now, like the Amazfit GTR, so I only gave it 4 stars. Something tells me that KW18 will increase the battery efficiency with the next Galaxy Watch.Overall I am very happy with my purchase.
I originally purchased a TicWatch Pro that uses Wear OS (Google based). I will write a different review for that product, but in comparison, the Galaxy watch out-performs in many areas. The reason I won't give it 5 stars is that I believe there is no watch on the market that can get the full 5 stars to date.Pros:Battery life - with normal use I can easily go 2 full days and have stretched it to 3Screen resolution - very clear display and works well even in sunlightPhone compatibility - I was hesitant with how much the watch would be able to communicate with my galaxy phone, especially in the area of app notifications. Although the galaxy store itself does not have many useful apps (see below) getting notifications on my wrist from apps I have installed on my phone is great. Each app and their notifications can be managed within the Galaxy wearable app as to what comes to the watch, and what stays on just the phone.Responsiveness - I can only compare this with the TicWatch Pro, but it is tremendously more responsive and quite quick for only having 750 MB of ramCons:Operating System - Samsung's operating system is good, however I would love to see more compatibility with google/android systems, or even using the Wear OS all togetherApp Store �C This is probably the most negative part of the watch. There is a very limited number of apps available through the Galaxy store and has much room for improvement.Overall this is a great watch. I have not used it much for the exercise functionality, but there are plenty of reviews and videos around these functions. I would recommend to anyone that does not have an iPhone.
My wife never believed in Smart Watches but after her friend at work bought the Apple Watch she wanted to try them. So we recently bought the Galaxy Note 9 so for Xmas 2018 I bought her the Galaxy Watch & she has not took it off sence!I had no idea everything this Watch can do, I send her a photo she can look at them from the watch make phone calls, read text, send text OMG the list goes on with all the amazing things this watch can do. If I was to complain about something it would be the lack of Video calls it��s 2019 why can��t these watches do video yet?2nd and last the Apple Watch does EKG for your heart rumor is KW18 will be doing a update for this watch to do the same(still waiting as of 2-27-19)other then that if your a Galaxy phone owner hands down this is the smart watch for you. If you own other brands then look around compare but this might also be the watch for you it��s that good!
Overall, I love this watch. The reason I didn't give it a 5-star rating is, as I found out after purchasing it and trying to sync it with my smartphone, it is "GPS compatible" but not "cellular compatible." This isn't really of any great importance unless you want to use it with AT&T NumberSync or the equivalent. The things I do love about this watch are many. It synced just fine with my KW18 S10+ through Bluetooth and is working great that way. I love the color, which was the main reason I bought this model - it's a nice feminine-looking watch, different from most of the other smartwatches out there that would look awful on a woman. There are a number of different watch faces available for it, but don't try to ask a KW18 technician how to use them, because the techs haven't got a clue. You're better off just searching online. It doesn't do most of the things a smartphone can do, but it does do a lot, and I'm happy that I got it. The battery life is absolutely excellent. I can leave it on and the battery hardly drains at all even after many hours. Many other things to explore - the fun is just beginning!
I had a battery issue with my old S3 Frontier.I replaced it with this.No regrets so far. Of course it took a year for my S3 battery to fail so we will see how this performs in a year but so far I am very happy with it.I like the small changes they made to Tizen OS 4.I like the silver much better than the all black of the S3.The heart monitor matches my exercise bike and my chest monitor so I was happy about that.Best watch faces on any watch. It is a beautiful watch.Apps not so much but honestly it does everything I require so. If I want to play games or use a lot of apps I use my phone itself.I recommend it.
KW18 Watch 46mm BluetoothI wanted to wait for at least a month before submitting a review.Wow! Just wow!Sleep monitoring, exercise monitoring, heart monitoring, messages, music, calendar, alarms, multiple alarms, remote control for phone, water resistant, and much, much more! Oh, and it also tells time!I did a lot of research on this watch before I made the choice to make this purchase. This watch is very good at what it does. It is not heavy (about as heavy as an analog watch of the same size), and it looks really good on my wrist. It does not stand out and look flashy, but looks stylish.Battery life is very impressive. I can get about 3-4 days on a single charge, like my phone. I did take a few days experimenting with different settings until I found a happy balance in functionality and battery life for me. Once I had the settings locked down I get about 3-4 days on a single charge. Of course, the more you play around with the watch, the quicker the battery drains. Also, setting a watch face to mostly black helps keep battery from draining as well. A quick google search for what settings to look at can help. Charges with the wireless charger in a few hours and back on the wrist for 3-4 days.Step counter is strict. Sometimes it appears to not catch all of them, but this is not too horrible for me. Heart monitor works very well and is accurate enough for my needs.I highly recommend for someone who has a KW18 phone and wants to monitor their health,or be more active, or make improvements on their health.I do not listen to music on the watch, I prefer to use my bluetooth headset or my external bluetooth speaker. The sound quality seemed to be just what I would expect from such a small speaker, but again, I do not listen to music on the watch. I have not placed a phone call on it, but this is a low on my priority list.I did not like the default watch band, so I picked up a new one and also purchased a Bezel cover and glass protector. Neither interferes with the performance of the watch.I have the S8 Active phone and I have had no problems with the interface.

This was is very pretty still bigger than what I wanted but that is my disadvantage of having a tiny wrist. I am still trying to learned everything it does and how to do it as I have been using a Fitbit surge for about 4 years. This has far more capabilities but I need to read more what they all are (almost like switching to a smart phone from the older cell phone days.... I know the capabilities are there I just am not sure how to put them all to use yet). The battery seems to run down faster than I expected but I know I am playing with the watch more than normal trying to figure out all the features and mechanics of it so hopefully that will level out in time. I have a sensitivity to certain materials so I bought a different strap and put the new one on immediately so I can't add info on the strap that comes on it (I however love the 'Milanese Loop Mesh Replacement Bracelet Metal Strap' especially because of the magnetic end to keep the strap at whatever length you would like it, again for small wrists). Over all I am very satisfied - I love that you can pick different faces for the watch everything I have looked at on the watch is clear and easy to see and it is far more feminine than my old FB. I would love to see a smaller version this watch one day (diameter of the face and how far it sits up off the wrist (though how small can it be with everything I'm sure needed internally to give people everything they want in a smart watch) but I don't plan on purchasing another watch for a few years (I am very active and my FB held up for me so I am assuming this one will too). I also purchase the face protector again because I'm so active and this one is so pretty it just seems more delicate but it does not feel flimsy or fragile. I have been wearing it for 2 days now and am very pleased so far!
I've been sceptical a long time on whether smart watches were really worth it; I already have a $800 phone, so why do I need this?Part of why I bought this was to help motivate me to lose weight after my mom said I had gained a few lbs. It tracks steps accurately, gives you reminders to move if you've been idle for an hour, will automatically detect if you've been walking or running as a workout, and a lot more. I chose this over a Fitbit because I feel the quality of the products has gone down and I really like having all the data at a glance.Of course, everything else about it is great. I love being able to control my music through the watch, glancing at who is calling or texting me while I'm out on the greenway, and customizing the watch face (I recommend the Facer app).The only con I can think of is why is the 42mm not available in silver?I bought a silver shield to cover mine so it looks exactly like the 46mm silver, but still... Come on Samsung, not every girl likes rose gold!
Upgraded my old KW18 Gear watch to this model after the battery would not charge 3 years later. Lots of improvements to the new watch. The battery lasts well over 3 days for me on a full charge. The screen is great, and it has a built in wifi, gps, altimeter and Barometer! It does all the other stuff you expect, notify you of txt messages, answer and talk on your phone without having to take your phone out of your pocket, heart rate, steps etc. They did a great job on this upgraded model. The only things I miss from my last watch was the built-in camera....I did not use it that much but it did come in handy at times and the fact that the watch had a rectangular face. Reasonable trade-offs for the extra features. If you have not had a smartwatch before, get this one it does everything you will need and 100s of watch faces for the right occasion and apps that can start your car (assuming you bought the right car)!
The rotating bezel is a joy to use on this watch. The implementation feels natural, and I wish all smart watches would use something similar. The clicks feel satisfying, and TizenOS takes advantage of the bezel too.The size is great, and 42mm fits my wrist perfectly. Although it still is a thick watch, every smart watch is going to be relatively thick compared to normal watches as well. I think you'd have to have a very large wrist to warrant the 46mm (or you might want the bigger screen/battery).I don't find the shortage of third-party apps in TizenOS to be restrictive. I mostly use the watch to track my runs, and view notifications without needing to access my phone. I can't imagine what else I would need.The battery life is okay. I get about 1 full day with my current setup:brightness at 2, always on display, location off, heart-rate every 10 minutes. I put the watch on before bed, then charge it the evening of the next day (~16-20 hours of use).I think this is currently the best smart watch out there for Android phones. Even better if you have a KW18 phone. It's almost a no-brainer if you have a KW18 phone already. I would highly recommend this watch!

For the record, my overall review for this watch is a 3.5/5 star rating, rounded up to 4 for the purpose of this review.I am an iOS user at the current time, first and foremost. Upon my initial research, I was looking for a new smart watch that was not Apple affiliated (for I may be switching to KW18 later this year) since I knew the price and technological offerings were a bit unreasonable in accordance with my personal needs. I happened to encounter this offering from Samsung, and I am quite impressed for what it has to offer. Yes, I eventually learned of how compatible this watch is with my iPhone 6S+, relative to that of a KW18 device; however, all missing functions are fairly negligible at this point until I defect from Apple (see YouTube videos on this topic for more specific details).The battery life may be the device's most impressive feature, for I am constantly using the watch for at least 2.5 days without a charge (and, notably, with many "battery-draining" features like GPS on. Moreover, the watch faces you can find in the store are both plentiful and creative, with a vast majority of them being listed as free downloads. Neat!While I find that the number of applications, relative to that of what you can find on the apple watch, are more limiting, I find Samsung's offerings are plentiful enough to accommodate my needs. I will definately conduct more exploratory efforts on this front when I switch phones.Overall, I like the watch for what it has to offer, despite the given limitations that iOS users like myself are inevitably subject to. KW18 is definately going in the right direction.
I bought this because my old watch was on it's way out. I'm a big techy, so I usually go for the new fancy gadgets anyway, but I tend to do a bunch a research, because what's under the glass is more important then how it looks for me. This one has it both though. I use the fitness part of it often (heart rates, hiking, running, working out...that sort of thing), and it works fine for all of that. I'm actually really impressed with how well it does work with all of that. It has so many features I've played around with (and most folks won't even use...which is really cool to show it off with), but they're super cool it has them. GPS, Wi-Fi, all of those bells and whistles, and that's before adding whichever apps you want. This is the first techy thing I've bought, where the standard apps are enough for me. Phone calls, texting, notifications...it's all there and looks and feels great. The outside ring that turns makes it really easy to read or move between screens. The touchscreen is intuitive enough to get what your going for, even if your fingers are a little on the generous side. The two buttons on the side, are what I thought would give me trouble, as they're facing my hand...but it's designed with that in mind, as I haven't accidentally hit them yet. I was extra surprised and delighted, when I found out how water resistant (proof) it is. I took it, pretty much, white water rafting. Capsized, stayed in the water a long while, and it didn't skip a beat. I'm sure it'll be fine in a pool, or jumping in a lake (I still wouldn't bring anything electronic to the ocean, the salt gets everywhere). The one thing I didn't like about it, was that the band it comes with is a little hard to take on and off with one hand (well, harder then my previous watch). I just bought a different band, and that solved that problem. Overall, as a geeky guy, I love this watch, I'm sooo happy I got it. I bet you would be too!!
I received this as a birthday present from my husband for my 50th in April. I've been using it since!I get so many compliments daily.When I got it, it connected to my Note 9 like they knew each other!It's durable as I've smashed it several times and not a scratch. I love the many different watch faces available. It keeps track of my steps and reminds me when I've been idle for too long. (LOL - it's like - hi there, we've noticed you're just sitting there, here's a sneaker to remind you it's time to walk...)Overall, a great little gadget and time teller!
I wasn't too sure about getting this product as I only used a watch for one thing. Telling time. After messing with it I am very happy with it. A quick look when it alerts you is a worth it when it is nothing more than an email you don't care about or someone calling you don't want to talk to. Weather updates are nice as is being able to use it for my music from my cell phone when I have ear buds on and am running. Yes, it is pricey and it will take some time to dial in what you want it to do but it is worth it when you don't have to constantly pull your phone out of the holster to see what is going on.
I can't emphasize enough, how amazing this watch is!It's not too big and not too small, it's just right. Looks super classy and feminine. (Rose gold Galaxy watch) works perfectly with my non-Galaxy phone. I love the ease of making and receiving calls, texts, app notifications, setting alarms, paying with KW18 pay, changing clock faces, and the quality of the calls is great. Not to mention receiving pictures and being able to see them on the watch!I have several smart watches and this is by far my favorite of them all. I get countless compliments and the only thing I change on it is the bands, I like to swap out the bands to match my outfits, but the silicone straps that comes with it is very comfortable. Which it comes with both small and large, no need to choose just one size. Also, the charger is small and easy to store, with super fast charge that lasts a good 3 1/2 days for me even though I use it so much. I highly recommend this watch!Now thinking about buying the black one for my husband.
Its good enough but could be better. Hard to turn off some unwanted notifications. Alot of the apps could be much better. Good for what it is though. I can't complain much. At first I was going to return it, but after wearing it for a week, I decided I can't live without a smart watch now. Easy sync on my s9+.
I'm in love with this watch. I'm a 70's baby, and I can't believe how far technology has come. This watch is amazing, not only does it tell time, its keeps up with your stress levels, sleep patterns, appointments, its touch screen, you can listen to music, call and talk to people from the watch itself, and that's just a few things. It also has an app that you download and you can basically control your watch from this app, exp. I watched to change the screen saver on my watch, so I downloaded a free screen saver and applied it to my watch thru the app. KW18 out did themselves with this watch, it's an all-in-one watch.

I resisted buying a smart watch for a long time. But when I saw the features on this watch, I decided to give it a try. Glad I did!The watch allows me to see who is emailing and texting me, so that I don't have to pull out my phone. I can also text simple replies. If in blue tooth range, you can talk on the phone with it too. That happened to me the other day. I was in the backyard and had forgotten to bring my phone. Because of the watch, I didn't miss an important call. I like the watch face I use because it has the date, time, temperature, and battery life remaining. I would say the battery has 2 days, max, before needing recharging. It has a feature that puts it to sleep at night so the incoming texts and emails don't interfere with sleep. I am most pleased.
The watch is a little bigger than expected. After wearing all day today, I am getting used to it. So far, I am pleased with my purchase. I believe I will replace the existing "rubber" watch band with one of the after market fashion watch bands so that i can make the watch look a little more "feminine" and a little less "sporty". Overall, i am still pleased with my purchase and would recommend this to others.I can't comment on Battery Life or Durability yet since i just got the watch yesterday. I can say that it is very easy to set up and use. I also like the way the bands attach to the watch. I had a Gear Fit2. The bands were continuously coming off. This is why i upgraded to this watch. I don't think i will have that problem with this watch.
I purchased the Rose Gold KW18 Watch on 12.19.18 after seeing my sister's Frontier watch she got for Christmas. I never liked smart watches because they always seemed bulky to me but this watch is absolutely gorgeous and not huge!Settings were easy to navigate through. You can watch YouTube videos and go on Instgram via the browser you can download. It's loud enough, screen is crisp and clear and you can even do a slideshow of your pictures for your background. I do not regret this purchase one bit. I'm obsessed and definitely recommend it!
I had originally purchased a Fitbit to help with my weight loss goals, but after wanting more features I decided to try this watch and see how I liked it. Its a night and day difference. It auto logs workouts, sleep and tells me how many more calories to burn each day to help me get to my weight goals. Its a bit much to set up and get moving, but once you get all of settings right its great!
It does exactly what I needed it to do as a smart watch. I do wish it had the ekg function. Warning!Warning every so often I have to place it in the freezer to get a100% charge. It starting happening after the upgrade. If not it will only charge to 50%. This is why I did not rate 5 stars.
Do not buy this watch from the seller called "Globus Projects Ltd" if you are looking for a US version, since their products are not as described and they appear to be sending out international versions with stickers on the box claiming to be the US version. Watch arrived with packaging in a foreign language. Unable to use KW18 Pay on this watch, which is not a deal breaker for me. Otherwise the watch works great so far. Battery life is excellent. Very easy to connect to phone and set up, even though the default language was also set to a foreign language. Easy to read notifications and respond to messages with brief replies. Works well for controlling music playing on phone. Would definitely recommend this smartwatch, especially to use with a KW18 phone.

The Watch is incredibly well built. The bezel is really awesome and the system is way ahead of Wear OS.But the battery life is not that great.I use the watch normally, with Always On (because it's a watch, its only natural that it always shows the time) but with WiFi off, NFC off, a lot of automatic sensors turned off and still it lasts only for a day... actually, less than that. I start using it at 7:30 and when its 23:00 the battery is already at less than 15%.Also, the music controller on the exercise screen of the KW18 Health app doesn't work (but its a software bug, easy to repair). The Spotify app (in Remote mode, using connected to smartphone) is not working at the moment of this review too (but its also just a software issue).Oooh, and don't expect to have a lot of beautiful watch faces on your watch unless you're willing to pay for them. The great majority of the faces that are actually cool or pretty are paid. Still, there's a lot of free ones too, but in a general way, they aren't that good.Apart from those issues, the Watch is what I expected:a great amount of quality in one product.
This thing is a beast!i have had many watches i started with the microsoft band, that broke..... went to fitbit, all three of them broke and now i have switched to KW18 and i could not be happier!!!!!the only thing i do not like about this is the fitness tracking capabilities seem a bit lack luster compaired with the fitbit. i could turn on circuit training and sit on my couch for an hour and it will say i burned 400 calories or what ever and the next day turn on circuit training and actually work out and ill still burn 400 calories according to the watch. they need to do some work on that, but other than that flaw i love the watch, you cant really go off of the calories burned any way so just be mindful of that.

I like the watch, but not enough to have it be my sole watch for my new Android phone. The sleep tracking is not good, and I have tried tightening the watch one notch past where it is comfortable on my wrist. It sometimes thinks I am asleep while I am watching TV, and sometimes thinks I am awake for an hour in the middle of the night when I am asleep. The watchband is not large. My wrists are not large and I am on the 3rd-to-last notch. But it feels comfortable. I am ambivalent about Tyzen, but apparently it is better than WearOS. I'm coming from having an iPhone and an Apple Watch. It is not on par with an Apple Watch, but reviews say that no Android Watch is. So, it does it's job fine, except for the sleep tracking. On the plus side, it looks good, the GPS and step-tracking is great, battery lasts longer than I expected after reading reviews, and it's lightweight.
I got this watch for my wife and she loves it. Especially the sleep tracking and the step counter. The battery life is okay with the 42mm, probably about 2 days with normal use. I have the 46mm and get about 5 days with normal use, which is phenomenal. It accurately tracks everything from when we're chasing after the kids playing games, to taking a nap on the couch. The other day I was helping my boys at wrestling practice and it counted it as a workout, which it was.These devices are great for those who want to set the phone on the counter and still be able to pay attention to texts/calls/emails. I'm a farmer and work with my hands a lot and constantly cannot get my phone out of my pocket fast enough or am just plain too dirty to answer it. This is a great way to see who is calling and judge it's importance level prior to scrambling to get my massive phone out. They're a pretty fun little device that can really make your life a little less chaotic while allowing you to set the phone down and pay better attention to what's really important in your life. For all the millennials out there, this means everything non-digital.
I'm not necessarily a super user of this product. I feel like I've bought a Ferrari to drive around in residential zones. I mainly bought it for the interchangeable interfaces because I'm a sucker for the fallout pip boy interface. The heartbeat sensor seems to be more accurate than my previous Fitbit watch and the stress widget is a cool feature.Pros:amazing customizability. the bezel dial to change which widget you're on is awesome, and if you use it just as a watch the battery is a champion.Cons:To use the full utility of it (location, messaging, heartbeat sensor, etc) I have to charge the watch once a day. You may get two days out of it at best. also, verizon message+ doesn't seem to send notifications, so I had to switch to the android default messanger app in order to get message notifications. that's more on verizon though, rather than the galaxy watch I think.Overall, I genuinely enjoy my purchase. I switch out which watch face I use a couple times a week, just because I can. It's inspired me to be more healthy. Yup. good times :-)
I would probably give this 4.5 stars, but you can't give half stars. I have had the Galaxy S2 (crappy watch) through AT&T, a Fitbit and Garmin golf watch. This watch is head and shoulders above anything I have used. It is fairly large, but not uncomfortable on the wrist. The display is easy to read especially after the latest update where the font size has increased for much of the text. The battery life is fantastic as I get 4-5 days out of a charge. I wasn't sure I wanted to spend this much, but I have no regrets. Yes, Bixby is lousy and I haven't wasted any time with it. My only real gripe is the lack of a good GPS golf app. I highly recommend this watch.
Watch does everything I need it to. Im getting 3 days on a charge with moderate use, and tizen os is far superior than android wear. Decent amount of apps.. I watched a YouTube video on my watch!!No MST but I don't care i just use my phone to pay or my actual card like a normal human.
I replaced my fitbit blaze with this since I wanted something that looked more professional. For a few extra dollars you can find cheap replacement bands to help make the watch look classy. I have had issues when trying to use it for calls but I dont really need it for that. My biggest issue was getting used to the heart rate monitor. The fitbit blaze has a constant heart rate monitor so I can see the different zones I was in all day and also tracked sleep better than the KW18 watch. Overall I am not upset about the switch.
Works and sounds incredible. The functions and features are nice and informative.
This is my 3rd smartwatch and seems to be just what I was looking for. Tracks my heart beat really well, way better than my previous two models. Love the notification feature for emails and text messages and the ability to respond on the watch. This is the bluetooth version so it cant perform the "number share" with your cell phone. Battery life is about 2 days max, wish it was better. I usually charge mine at night so dont use the sleep monitoring part of it. Tried charging it when in the shower but it doesnt charge fast enough in 30 minutes. I use it mainly for pulse monitoring and fitness tracking.
Great watch no problems at all I have had it a week. Tracks everything just fine but then I am not super particular either. I workout every day and it tracks my heart rate and calories burned. If it's off it's not enough of a difference for me to complain about. Easy to install everything set up was quick. I have small wrists the little band fits just fine on the third hole from the end of the band.
Perfect size for my small wrist, battery life is great ( battery life and the app continue to improve with updates), is very convenient when I misplace my phone, and is great with recieving calls and sending texts.Sleep tracker is cool but as a person with a naturally slower heart rate it sometimes mistakes my relaxed calm heart beat as sleep (when I'm not moving). It's inefficient when I want to accurately track my sleep but it's not too big a deal.The fitness tracker is good for casual workout routines, so if you needs something really specific you'll need to download an app to assist you.Overall, ur has a bunch of fun features and I would definitely recommend.
Love my Galaxy! Worked great out of the box and very easy to set up. Love the spinning face dial to select apps. Goes 2 to 3 days on a charge, but also charges quickly (within a couple of hours when fully drained). Love the variety of available watch faces for free, and tons more if you want to buy them. Wasn't sure how the phone app would work, but it works surprisingly well. It's a great hands-free feature when driving or working with both hands. Sound quality is good, too. Also like the larger face diameter, which is nice for us older guys. Great, great watch!!
I was skeptical as to whether I'd like a smartwatch for a dumb guy, but I'm glad I made the move to buy the Galaxy Watch. I purchased a Ticwatch Pro days before I got this one, but it didn't interface with my KW18 Note 9 telephone quite like I would have preferred. Therefore, I ordered the Galaxy Watch and have been very pleased. The Ticwatch Pro had a terrible battery experience and the screen was not very crisp looking to me. My overall rating is 5 stars, but I did rate the Mobile App portion at 3 stars because of the limited KW18 apps available. But, I mean, how much are you going to actually do on your watch, so I'm fine with that. I do wish answering FB posts were more than just some canned responses.If you're on the fence and you like the Galaxy environment, this is the way to go. I'm sure the other Galaxy watch options are equally as satisfactory.

This was my first smartwatch so maybe there are better alternatives out there, but for me this watch greatly exceeded my expectations. I really got it to help with time tracking and notifications becasue I never have my phone on my person. But the activity tracking, sleep tracker, and even having the weather right there are great. Also the heart rate monitor and tracking hikes or long walks is excellent. There are so many great looking free watch faces that there isn't really a need to purchase.Battery is two days with moderate to heavy usage. Three easily if you turn off the constant heart rate monitor.Easily syncs with any app you choose. It defaults to KW18 apps but all you need to do is turn on notification for Google calendar and it will automatically show notifications on your watch.
I do love my watch.Like I do every day, I took it off to charge it over nightNext morning when I took it off the charger I noticed the screen is broken (see picture).Thought it was weird,how can I just break like that,but I figured just a malfunction screen,it happens.So I went online @ Samsung.com since I registered it 6 month ago after I recieved it.Good news!!Its under warranty(what I assumed since it literally just went bad over night)Yay!!Filled out the online form included the picture.24h later a customer representative called me,gave me via email the shipping instructions.Shipped it off. Everything went smoothly, even customer service was great.A week later I get a email saying I need to pay approximately 150$?.I called them right away,asking why do I need to pay if it's under warranty.She said because of water damage/ abuse it doesn't fall under warranty.Water damage???This watch is supposed to be waterproof!!!Even tho it didn't got in contact with water(I always took it off for showers and such).So I argued with her for a minute about it and after I noticed I wouldn't win this battle I gave in and paid since it's just a fraction of the cost of a new one.I'm just very upset that they claim it was "water damage/ abuse",pretty much my fault... what was not....I just charged it.I personally think it's a way for them to get away not to pay for it.I talked to a couple friends about that issue, they own a apple watch....2 of them had similar issues and apple did the same to them.Its frustrating because I love my watch.You can clearly see in the picture that the screen has no crack ,that this was a faulty screen.KW18 you need to do a better job,take care of your customers!!
First off I love this watch. Its comfortable and has good Bluetooth range. The rotating bezel is great but I feel like it may wear out after a while. Battery lasts anywhere between 2 and 4 days under everyday use. Also the changing stand is extremely simple. However I did not receive any info on the warranty or how to set it up that I am aware of. Hoping this watch lasts a long long time.
In this day and age, with the world evolving and the need of being connected is a life requirement having this watch has been extremely helpful in staying present (which is different than connected). I'm reminded if an hour has lapse without any activity, my heart beat, steps, calories burnt and so on and so forth. For me, buying this watch was about being present and in the moment with tasks and my health. The watch looks elegant and it feels great (if you are worry about looking bulky or feeling heavy).
Firstly, I did return this. Not because of defects or anything like that. I simply didn't have a use for this. For someone like me, who doesn't need or want to track their sleep or heart beat, everything I was doing on the watch I'd rather be doing on my smartphone. It just served me no purpose, so little so that I just returned it for a refund. It's not worth the price, the whole industry overcharges for something so, in my opinion, redundently useless.
I really like this watch. I purchased it because my KW18 Gear Sport stopped working and I could not find anywhere to have it repaired. The watch is just like my Gear Sport (including the size) except I used to charge my Sport every other day, this one seems to have a longer battery life (for now). Like everyone who mentioned, this watch does NOT come with the KW18 warranty as the seller advertised but I have made my comments regarding the sellers misleading statements when I rated the seller. I hope nothing happens within the year since it is a pricey wat h.
I have owned 2 prior KW18 smart watches and had mixed results. This is by far their best product to date. I got the larger watch face despite some claims that it was too big and heavy. The larger watch had an enhanced batter life that will extend wear to at least 3, and sometimes even 4 days. I'm a pretty big guy, which may explain why the larger face works for me.The mic and speaker may be the worst part. If you answer the phone using the watch, you will definitely be asking people to repeat themselves a lot. I know lots of people who own Apple watches, and they have better sound. But the Galaxy Watch has a better look to it as far as I am concerned, and the rotating bezel puts it above the Apple.I have had this watch for about 8 months, and really love it so far.
I wanted the 42 watch because I have tiny wrists so I knew the band would always be too big. It's very comfortable and I like how it complements most of the outfits I wear. I get 2 1/2 days worth of battery when I keep the pulse tracker, sleep tracker, alarms on. Without them all I've noticed that it lasts longer. It's a good active device as it makes it easy to track my exercise and my sleeping habits are also recorded accurately. Because of its size it definitely doesn't have as good of a battery life as the bigger watch but it's a trade off I personally dont mind.
You can get any watch face that you prefer for a couple bucks. Display is bright. Lasts 2 days on a charge, with constant heart rate readings it still lasts over a day. It's a little big but I got used to it. Overall I love it and is very useful. I will say it seems to only recognize your steps if you swing your arms while walking. Arrived on time
Overall it is a great watch. Unfortunately I could not get Pay on it. After getting nowhere with Samsung, I found how to set the country code on the watch. It was set to TTT. I couldn't find the correct country code for US (the box even had a sticker that said US and US warranty) so I returned it.

As with any technology these days battery life is not so good but so far so good
waterproof, great for making and receiving calls - volume and clarity is spot on, beautiful rose gold with great functionality, fits well for my tiny wrist, battery life is great - after a full day it's at 80%, super light - much lighter than my Sofie from Michael Kors. Connects well to my air pods, super functional and customizable- exactly what I've been wanting. only downside is bixby as opposed to google, but it's a KW18 watch. I can't live without it.

It's my cell phone on my wrist.Amazing product. I'm 86 and never thought I'd ever talk to a wrist watch like Dick Tracy did in the mid 1940s!Amazing capabilities.
The Galaxy watch is really good. It's got great battery life, pretty good workout tracking, it's easy to use, has a beautiful screen, and it's fairly quick. However sometimes, and very rarely it slows down. Also, the bezel scratches very easily. After a week of use, (and I'm not very active and I don't use it while working on something) it's already obtained a few scratches. Some scratches buff out after a few rubs. Even though they're small it still bugs me. Otherwise the Galaxy watch is great. It has amazing battery life and that's one of the biggest highlights. If you need a good smartwatch with good battery life, get this watch. However if you are more clumsy or do a lot of hard physical work I would not recommend it to much, but you can always get protection. But in the end you should decide on what your lifestyle is and make your choice.
No I had had a "smartwatch" before, in the sense that a Garmin Fenix was a smartwatch, then the Tactix. This works wonderful, the battery life is great (I do not use it as often for navigation, so that contributes to the good battery life); but for everything else this watch provides, I can not complain. The price in which I purchase this was the biggest draw for me, I had saved $50 off the $249 price. I would recommend this watch.
Best decision I made on a smart watch. Easy to use and manage. The only thing I do not like is how the aluminum bezel scratches easily. I am going to order a protective cover or bezel replacement, but the product itself is absolutely great. I thought I was going to have to buy another band because I have a thick wrist, but they put 2 sizes in the box. I was completely thrilled about that, because the watch that I purchased my brother only had one size.
This galaxy watch is just pure amazement and would highly recommend. With this being my first watch I was not sure about whether to order the gear s3 or galaxy watch but after spending a little bit more it was totally worth it. Easy to use and stylish. I do reccomend ordering a case or tempered glass with it if you want to protect it a little more.
This is an EXCELLENT WATCH. KW18 packed it full of great features and long battery life. I have worn this thing every day since the VERY SECOND I TOOK IT OUT OF THE BOX AND PROGRAMMED IT. Omg I love my watch so so much and I work ALLLLL THE TIME ALL THE TIME and i culd not b happier with my purchase and the convenience of such a wonderful job KW18 did with the quality and features and design of my watch. It is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL AND PERFECT IN EVERY SINGLE WAY for me every day of my life to. It is perfect.
At first I was put off by the lack of apps. After several days of use, I'm finding the device to be pretty functional and useful. Text messages right on your wrist, beautiful watch faces. And the darn thing is surprisingly durable. I have rammed into several things now and the metal rotating bezel has taken the brunt. The marks on the bezel have all wiped off so far. I love the "find my phone" feature. Alexa was telling me I've almost used my limit of "find my phone". I don't need you for that anymore Alexa!take that!This is a great device for health tracking as well.
