Sorry but with all my notification all day, it only went for on day and a half, 2 days if few notifications. No GPS activated or sensor all the time, GW4 44mm, not Classic version. That's why I sent it back, sadly because I like the new font/resolution of the screen (more compact)

tizenOS in smartphones is no big deal.it was always minor.but,tizenOS is mostly used in modern smartTVs and smartwatches.what is their future?

It's fairly easy to stretch the GW4 to 3 days, which is about 2-3 times as long as watches using a Snapdragon processor and 3 times as long as an iWatch. If you compare it to a feature watch, you're doing it wrong.

This is nothing but greed and laziness. They could have easily progressed it better if they wanted and there was potential. Just rich boses and share holders with no comprehension of the real world

It adds 2% more body fat at least to anyone, compared to pro scale with same technology of sensor. I had purchased the GW4 with the capacitive bezel but in Wear OS, it's not 'thinked' like that, it's more gesture. So you'll end up upon a gesture, touching the bezel ... When in use, it's very annoying. Adds that to the poor battery life and the 'new' sensors that aren't that great, compared to a GW3 Titanium, I'm gonna keep it :P

It's still a downgrade since my S3 Frontier on battery life but hey, at least there are (useful) sensors that works :p

Simple, Samsung is preparing a switch to Fuschia Os

GregLu, 09 Jan 2022Agreed on the part where Wear OS was nowhere with Tizen on ... moreThe Google watch most likely won't have all the advanced sensors, like body composition, so it should be a bit thinner. I'm also guessing Samsung will want to protect their IP on the rotating bezel, so that will make it look more like the basic Galaxy Watch 4. That isn't necessarily all bad, the basic Galaxy Watch 4 is a very nice looking watch.

I didn't checked the code or so on, but seeing the similarities and how Wear OS 3.0 wasn't really made for dial / round watch (Like Tizen was, since the dial was brought on since the start), add a poor battery life and you have all except a winner :D

Let's see in a few times ... But RN, I wonder about the Pixel watch, if it's gonna be a Watch4 clone with a more 'classic watch' body and perhaps slimmer ? Or it will be a soufflé that will fall back :D
