I recently bought a Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. I formerly owned several Garmin trackers. The Garmin trackers were not as nice as the Galaxy Watch 5, but the tracking program for Garmin was 100 times better. I honestly don't have many friends with a Samsung Health account, and it's frustrating that you can't challenge random people to challenges unless you find someone on Reddit. I love the watch, but with all honesty I really miss Garmin's app.
I'll be honest here. The Samsung Health app is one reason why I don't last with a Samsung phone for more than a few months at a time. I keep flopping back and forth between Samsung and iPhone. Sadly, it's due to the health apps. I really hate Samsung Health. It's a very blah app compared to other health apps available for other watches. I really wish they would just completely change it.
So true. Samsung health lags far behind Garmin's apps. The accuracy of the electronics/tracking/heart rate all seem better on Garmin. Seems like Samsung put out a watch just to gather more data but they don't really care about how useful it is.
