Died just at the 2 year mark.
I had it for 2 years. It recently died on me for no reason. It was working in the morning then i got a blank screen just before noon. Cant get it to work again. Does not respond when i put in charger or push any bottons. I left it for a week to completely drain the battery. Charged it and still not working. After reading other reviews, this watch model seems to break a lot and i was lucky to get 2 years out of it. Stay away from it if you want something that will last.
Purchased at Optus.
I really loved the watch in the first 10 months, but it spiraled down hill thereafter.
Now at the 12 month mark, I regularly get a blank screen, and after trying to restart it sends out an emergency message. If I leave it alone, the screen comes back after an hour. Heart rate monitor sometimes just freeze itself while I go for a run. It just stops randomly, let say at 130, doesn't matter that I run, walk or rest then I had to restart the watch again.
This is not the Samsung products that I used to love. Sooooooooooooo disappointed.

Battery life is disappointing
Bought at a bargain in Germany last year. Battery is underperforming with only 1 day per charge. The apps are quite cliche and nothing special. Doesn't feel as premium as I thought it would be - especially with limited watch interfaces to choose from
Purchased at Samsung Physical store.
I really love the Samsung galaxy smart watch, it is connected to my fone, i can make calls and send vocal text messages with it, has lost of other features
Purchased in October 2019 at Optus .
This watch is able to do all the modern things. Make a phone call, read text, reply to messages, weather and news updates. i use it for fitness and it has a good fitness app with it. Water resistant. The bizel is nice and the tripple black colour looks mint.
Very little external app selection.
Not amazed like when i got my first apple smartwatch, that was a bomb feeling.

Great Watch with built in Samsung health
I got this watch as a redemption from from Samsung via Optus purchase.
First time I ever got a watch and I was not used to it. It is very light weight and has a lot of features.
Comes with many customization options.
Definitely recommend it.

I really love this watch
I bought this watch to replace my Fitbit Versa which I dropped and cracked the screen. I mainly used my Fitbit as a watch because I felt the features to be lacking. I was just going to buy another Fitbit Versa but I decided to get the Galaxy Active and I do not regret it.
The watch is comfy to wear all day everyday. I even wear it to bed to track my sleep and I forget its there. The screen on this device is amazing, its easy to touch the icons without fat fingers touching other things and it displays items that are very easy to read even on t...he go. I have been tracking my health items more actively using the Samsung Health app and it has given important insights. My only gripe is that the blood pressure app doesn't work on an S10e. I hope this changes soon as I was extremely disappointed to find this out. Overall, I wouldn't go back to Fitbit

Bits keep falling off!
Bought Galaxy Smart watch in March this year in good faith, quite happy with it at first. Then a very small bit of a plastic cover from the back fell out. I could not fit it back into the slot. This should have just clipped in. Took back to Samsung, where I was told it would be ready in 2 days. After many phone calls and more than 2 weeks later was told it was ready. I never received a call from the Samsung shop to notify me.
Today another round bit off the back which probably has something to do with charging has fallen off. I cannot clip it back on. Not happy and want to ask for a complete replacement, obviously this is a lemon!

Perfect for a lady. Too small of a dial for men as a watch
Easy to use interface and very user-friendly. Wife loves it. Claims of a Blood pressure monitor but got to have a Samsung Galaxy for it. Wasn't able to do it in her Vivo and my Nokia. Very lightweight and barely feels like its there. Great that it has wireless charging, all you got to do is take it close to the pad and the pad just clings on to it magnetically. So its safe storage + Charging.
Highly recommend this watch.

I had the Garmin Vivo HR which was a hybrid watch. This watch was good to look at but the display was low lit so difficult to see at times. The Samsung I feel is better than this as the watch faces can be changed. The watch is more interactive and the display is vivid. It actual looks better on the wrist than the Garmin.
