" ...  Watch is completely nonresponsive until battery dies (in all three cases around 12 hours) and watch restarts.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I assumed there reviews about battery life and slowness were exaggerated. ... On a 3 hr bike ride, the battery was nearly dead using my phone gps. ... If I truly wanted to eliminate my phone on rides the battery wouldn't last.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Both of these smartwatches use exactly the same version of WearOS, however, the Fossil Sport is buggy and has a lot worse battery life when compared with my Falster 2 with exactly the same settings. ... The battery drainage on the Sport is just terrible. ... But when I use the Sport, I'm lucky to have 20 percent of battery left at the end of the day. ... On top of these battery problems, the WearOS companion app on my phone is pretty much useless.  ...  "

" ...  2) The OS feels stagnant. ... There's long been speculation of the demise of the Wear OS platform and Google does very little to extinguish those rumors. ... Including during this years Google developer conference there wasn't a single presentation or discussion or any representation for Wear OS, at all.  ...  "

" ...  Since owning the watch I've had to factory reset the watch more then 5 times and currently am experiencing random reboots daily for no apparent reason.  ...  "
comment
" ...  So I shut everything down except sleep for Android . ... I wanted to wear OS I thought it would be leaps and bounds above my old Galaxy S2 but it's the other way around the Galaxy S2 has native sleep tracking actually shows you a sinusoidal wave of your heartbeat whereas listen sleep or Android is substandard compared to the Samsung Galaxy S2 from years ago. ... This watch and wear OS are a big disappoinyment .  ...  "

" ...  It does a ton, you can DL certain apps to the watch. ... People complain about battery life, this is more like a tiny phone, so yeah, if I use a lot of apps it will drain the battery, I had big apps on there that I took off to help save battery. ... Also, it works with google fit etc.  ...  "

" ...  Be patient learning the swiping directions and use the tutorial that's built in.  ...  "
comment
" ...  There is alot of apps you can use with it as well to make it personal. ... I addef Google fit and it just automatically tracks my workouts.  ...  "
comment
" ...  But since I use Android, Google pay, Google Play Music, etc., I decided going with Wear OS would be worth it. ... Worth noting: the Google Keep app was inexplicably draining my battery to 0% within about 5 hours, but I removed the app and now battery life is great. ... But if you want a smartwatch to be an extension of your phone - to help you see quick notifications, have access to Google Assistant, workout tracking, etc., then this will be a fantastic watch for you.  ...  "
