I have the watch 5 Pro and love it except I cannot look at my Dexcom G6 sugar readings on it. This is very disappointing given that almost all android watches have a watch face for that very purpose. Unless the Watch 6 has that feature. I would be very hesitant in buying one. Other than that, they are an excellent watch!!

Meh. It's not really an upgrade from anything previous.

  • It has no way to backup thanks to samsung breaking the backup mechanism by forcing smart switch which doesn't work with anything but samsung watches
  • the battery charging is a bit touchy which didn't use to be the case before. Now, when I put the watch on the puck, it's a 50-50 chance it won't charge by the time I have picked it back up again
  • There's no real "upgrade" in terms of software or hardware, sure, a little bigger face but seriously, 1mm is not "bigger" (for the classic) and the software is just the same. It's as if they just needed to come out with a "new" version so they did the bare minimum and put this out for us all to be their beta testers
  • There's no real incentive to upgrade I found out after I did. The "free" watchband is really sad because it feels like those 80s wallets with velcro. Matter of fact it IS a velcro watchband which is a really embarrassing thing to release for a company like samsung (they won't understand nor care because I think they're just phoning it in with this release)

The major hardware improvements for the Watch 6 Series included the return of the rotating bezel for the Classic, double the screen brightness (2,000 nits), 2GB RAM, and a new processor. 🙂 In terms of software, the Watch 4 and 5 are running the beta of the stable version of One UI Watch 5 that the Watch 6 currently has, so many things will "feel" similar between the models.

The touch to wake screen on the 6 classic 47mm is glitchy the 5 pro was excellent. I have to push one of the side buttons to wake it sometimes

I have to tap 3-4 times sometimes and then press the side button to make the screen turn on.

I have the smaller classic but as mentioned in the list of issues above plus others, I find it odd that the watch can be worn on either hand but no one in design gave thought to how that might work for those who wear the watch on the right arm and the minute indicators being upside down that painted on the rehaut.

I do like the smaller size and the stainless steel or whatever the material is of the classic but I am disappointed in the life of the battery so far. I'd get 2 days out of the 5Pro, yeah I know bigger battery but 40% in 6 or 7 hours is not really good.
