Lack of MST is why I skipped on the Galaxy Watch and went for last year's Gear S3. Get rid of Bixby and add Google Assistant support instead if you really want to add value/features Samsung.
Unbelievable. I can't even say how many people have been amazed as they've seen MST work. Happens nearly every time I pay at a retail store. MST is more important than nearly all other features.
DON'T MAKE ANOTHER FLAGSHIP WATCH WITHOUT IT! Unless you want to lose your most loyal and avid customers, who help bring other customers.
I agree 1000%. I would have bought the new watch - but without MST I will not consider it. May switch to another watch now that has better features for exercise (i.e. that has accurate floor counts for starters). My only gripe on the Frontier is the inaccurate floor counts.
I haven't found a decent upgrade path for me since the S2 Classic. I use mainly digital watch faces and all the watches with the minute ticks in the bezel are out.
Now that we have a watch with a clean looking bezel finally they remove the best feature? Actually not upgrading because of this, maybe I will wait another year to see if there will be a watch option for me, maybe not.
I agree MST in my opinion is the best smartphone tech. Samsung doesn't properly advertise it enough. Most people 1. Don't know it exists 2. They don't know how it works. MST is the reason I have Samsung. The only watch they have ever made with MST is the gear S3 which is what I have. I won't upgrade to anything else unless it has it.
Samsung MST and Wear OS or no buy. No one develops for Tizen. It's a tiny walled garden that needs some dynamite. MST is the sole feature that made smart watches actually worth purchasing. You should license out MST to other phone and watch manufacturers. Just a suggestion, listen to your customers!
